Simone Biles 1997

“I make breakfast, which is usually Kellogg’s Red Berries or egg whites, and then I go to the gym. I have practice from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and then I drive home and eat lunch, which is either chicken or fish, so I get the protein. I grab a quick snack and head back to the gym from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.”

*This gives you an Olympic gold medal breakfast, lunch, and two workout times. have the Steph Curry Chicken for dinner.

“But each time, I felt I spent too much, and I realized I couldn’t last out until I was 100 years old.”

*Plan on never retiring OR stop spending so much. I’ve got to stop spending so much!

Pick and write it down – “I am never going to retire.” Or “I am going to stop spending so much.”

“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

Who do you want to spend the rest of your life with?

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.
