A DAY OF QUEENS

MIND

Gloria Steinem 1934

“Feminism’s purpose is not to attack men but “to free the uniqueness of the individual and to understand that inside each of us is a unique human being who is a combination of heredity and environment.”

*Think about what makes you so unique as an individual. Think about your personality and which parts you were born with and which parts you have learned. And finally think about which parts of your personality and thought process that you would like to change for the better.

BODY

Sarah Jessica Parker 1965

Apart from spending two hours in the gym, she ran 5 miles daily. Lately she realized the importance of moderation in workouts and trimmed her workout hours.

*Go for the skinny body and bulging veins version of Sarah Jessica Parker aka Carrie Bradshaw – Do NOT do a Peloton workout today.

2 hours in the gym [] and finish it up with a 5-mile run []

SOUL

Aretha Franklin 1942 “The Queen of Soul”

“She’ll scare the shit out of you. And you’ll know—you’ll swear—that she’s still the best fuckin’ singer this fucked-up country has ever produced.”

*Sit back, relax, and listen to the “Queen of Soul” to soothe your soul today.

MONEY

Danica Patrick 1982

“Listen to Money Experts and Check on Your Money Daily.”

*It is easier than ever, so make the time to check on your money every day.

How is your money looking – Checking – Savings – Debt

ENTERTAINMENT

Elton John 1947

Elton John Pays Homage to Aretha Franklin, raises $3.9 Million to Fight HIV/AIDS

*After listening to the “Queen of Soul”, Aretha Franklin, listen to Elton John – the man who paid homage to her after her death in August of 2018.

FOOD

Katharine McPhee 1984

Breakfast: Katharine starts her day with “nurturing” and “wholesome” avocado toast. “I put a little bit of truffle oil over the avocado with salt and pepper on delicious whole wheat toast.” []

Lunch: What does McPhee toss into her salads? “Kale, kale, kale, kale. I love kale,” she reveals, adding, “And then garbanzo beans, spicy broccoli, red onion, carrot, feta cheese, cucumbers, and then maybe something crunchy, like almonds. I like to eat a really hearty, full meal that’s rich in fiber with good fat, like an avocado, and proteins.” []

Snack: “Probably an apple, like a McIntosh. It’s not really my favorite snack, but it’s my gauge—I use it as a testing method to go, ‘Okay, am I really hungry, or will a piece of fruit satiate me right now?’ If not, I’ll go for something with a little more sustenance, like a handful of cashews.” []

Dinner: “In a slow cooker, I’ll put broccoli, peppers, onions, and garlic and a can of black beans and pinto beans,” McPhee jokingly compares her hearty vegetarian soup to baby food. “I’ll roast it in the slow cooker for like four hours, probably do some vegetable broth, puree it, and put in tons of Cholula hot sauce. It’s super mushy, but it’s so heavy in vegetables and beans and it’s so filling. Then I’ll do some feta cheese on top.” []

*Eat like Katharine McPhee all day – check off as you go.

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.
