“I’m now incorporating into my exercise regimen a class with my daughter. I think it’s called “Ballet Yoga Booty” so you do a little bit of everything, but you’re moving for that solid hour. It’s really fun and something for me to do with her. I love it because it’s aerobic without making you wish that it was over already.”

*If you do not live near a studio, look online for a Ballet Yoga Booty workout that you can do. There is a 4-week option that you could buy online as well.

SOUL

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.
