“I’m eating well. I make sure to get my fruits and veggies, protein, whole grains and fiber. I try to focus on portion control as much as I can. I set a goal to space out my meals and avoid the urge to snack mindlessly, especially after dinner in front of the TV.

I also exercise regularly and enjoy playing tennis and softball—anything cardio. My lifestyle is manageable, and I have a routine, but I still have my vices too. I like donuts. I just don’t overdo it.”

*Train like Daniel Son. Choose any or all the following.

Fruits and veggies []    protein []          whole grains and fiber []

“I started my business career at age 12, delivering newspapers,” “I had a lot of elderly customers, so I would always put the newspaper in between the screen door and the door — that caring made me different, made me better than the last paperboy.”

Combs said he learned that “if I give the customers my best and service them differently, whether music, clothing or vodka, I’ll get a return on my hard work.”

*How will you service your customers differently?

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.
