“I try to get to a Pilates Plus class, which is an intense, fast-paced workout that’s done on a special reformer machine, at least three times a week. I also go to the gym a couple of times. I do 15 minutes on the treadmill, walking at a 3.5-mile-per-hour speed and a 15-grade incline.”

*If you can’t get to a Pilates Plus class, do 15 minutes on the treadmill, walking 3.5 mph at a 15-grade incline. Also think of getting the brookeburkebody app.

SOUL

Ruby Bridges 1954

31: The Problem We All Live With by Norman Rockwell

When Ruby Bridges walked into her first-grade class in 1960, the tiny 6-year-old became a powerful symbol of the Civil Rights Movement. She was the first black student to attend the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, despite the mob of protesters who raged outside the school.

*If you have a daunting challenge today, gather the courage of Ruby Bridges to overcome it.

MONEY

The Pittsburgh star, tweeted a request for his hometown fans: “weed and Primanti’s.”  

“I really like rice and salmon. The funny thing is, anything with rice, I’m really down with it. When it’s rice involved, I’m going to come and scoop me up a plate.”

BONUS: Charlie Trotter 1959: These 4-ounce, vacuum-sealed packages of salmon are a food you can purchase and lay claim: “I got to eat Charlie Trotter’s cooking.”

*Get some Charlie Trotter salmon and make rice to eat like Wiz Khalifa. Have some late-night weed and Primanti’s Brothers sandwiches. Go Steelers!

“Although about the same proportion of blacks and whites use marijuana, a black person is almost four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than a white person.” – Bernie Sanders

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.
