“My main rules were that it had to include the whole body, and it had to be interesting. Everything was a big movement – we’d work with kettlebells, do deadlifts, pull-ups and drag chains.”

*Have your trainer put you through a whole body workout that is interesting. Use kettlebells, deadlifts, pull-ups, and drag chains. Watch Jude Law almost win an Oscar in Cold Mountain for motivation.

If you could eat something right this second, what would you want to eat?
I would want to eat one of those balls from Lilia… those cacio e pepe balls… It’s like an arancini? It is maybe my favorite thing in the world.

*Make your own cacio e pepe balls and add some brie cheese.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
