LITTLE FOOL (on hiatus) — josh duhamel gif pack

Duhamel and ex-wife Fergie would use rivalry at the gym to keep things lively.

“I do circuit training with heavy cardio at least three times a week— heavy lifting if I’m looking to bulk up and keep muscle on—and interval 100-yard sprints uphill every day,”

*Find someone who you can compete with and let your rivalry make things lively at the gym today.

“Records sales weren’t as high as they was. I was a little unhappy with what was going on so I started going to church. And when I started going to church I started to feel better. Things were starting to look brighter for me. I started to see that learning the principles of God was helping to shape my life better.”

*Go to church. You will start to feel better. Things will start to feel brighter. Listen to Rev. Run and Run DMC for inspiration. Walk this way.

Barker has eaten vegetarian since he was 13, but didn’t go vegan until he survived a plane crash in 2008.

Breakfast: The first thing I do is drink as much water as possible before I have my espresso with oat milk and some of the Rise tincture [from Barker Wellness] []

Lunch: I usually won’t eat lunch until 2 or 3 p.m. I like having a healthy bowl, with a lot of vegetables, and an Impossible kebab in it []

Snack: After lunch, I’ll snack on almonds or walnuts []

Dinner: For dinner, I’ll usually have this beefless broccoli that I love with a side of Brussels sprouts and green beans. That’s usually it []

*Eat like Travis Barker – even if you haven’t survived a plane crash. Recipes at

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.
