FERGALICIOUS DAY

MIND

Buster Posey 1987

“I think it’s just as crucial, if not more crucial, to be mentally fit. Baseball has such a long season, there are going to be ups and downs, so you need to stay as even-keeled as possible. I think it’s really important to go in with a good mindset every day. I try to pick up a book every once in a while for a good refresher on mindset. Mind Gym by Gary Mack is one I’ve read several times.”

*It’s going to be a long year with lots of ups and downs. Go in to today with a good mindset. Order the book Mind Gym.

BODY

Jessie J 1988

“If I move, it’s good. Sometimes I just want to stretch, and I don’t want to do any weights, or I just want to use my own bodyweight and do squats, lunges, or jump around, kind of getting to know my own body in some way. Other days, I do deadlifts and barbell squats, and I love sled pushes. I really feel the burn the next day. For cardio, I like rowing and cycling. But I can’t run-I get bored.”

“You need to almost distract yourself, which is why music for me is such a big part of my workout.”

*Distract yourself with a playlist of Fergie, Mariah, and Jessie J as you move like her. Check off –

Stretch [] squats [] lunges [] jump around [] deadlifts [] sled pushes [] rowing [] cycling []

SOUL

Mariah Carey 1970

“Icon? I really don’t think of myself in that way. I started making music out of a necessity to survive and to express myself. I just wanted to create something so I could feel worthy of existing and if I’ve learned anything at all in this life, it’s that truly all things are possible with God.”

*Listen to the icon – Mariah Carey and realize that all things are possible with God.

What is one thing that is possible for you, with God by your side?

MONEY

Kendra Scott 1974

“Entrepreneurs need to be willing to try their ideas even though they may fail.”

*Harness failure to drive your success.

What is a recent financial failure of yours?

What did you learn from this failure?

ENTERTAINMENT

Quentin Tarantino 1963 – watch Pulp Fiction

*Watch Quentin Tarantino win an Oscar in Pulp Fiction.

FOOD

BONUS: Nathan Fillion 1971 – death by chocolate for dessert

The cake at the Castle star’s 43rd birthday bash in West Hollywood had three tiers of devil’s food cake layered with bittersweet chocolate mousse and crunchy Valrhona chocolate pearls, all covered in a ganache made from two types of chocolate and garnished with bittersweet chocolate shavings.

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.
