Hello and Happy Friday,

Here’s your 5-Star Friday, a short list of the things I’m doing, thinking or considering this week that you may find interesting, exciting or controversial.

What I’m listening to…
Workout with the Running Cadences of US Recon Marines – I have many fond memories of running to cadence..and some not so fun, but I have to admit, listening to a good “Jody” gets me motivated. I can’t help to feel ten feet tall and bulletproof. Give it a try, you may find yourself standing a little straighter and copping a kick-butt attitude.

The workout I’ve been doing…
10-10-3 (and sometimes 10-10-10-3)
– Last week I mentioned this workout and I’m still doing it every other day. I’m also doing 30-45 minutes of indoor bike trainer on Tue/Thu/Sat with an emphasis on short, high-intensity sprinting. I do something everyday. The daily habit is key.

The habit I’m refining…
Watch Challenge – I say refining because I haven’t been consistent in applying it. I have committed to waking up by 5:15 a.m. every morning. I post a picture of my watch face on my Facebook Group “Practical Masculinity” every morning with a note. The three things I’m doing first thing in the morning are 1) wake up by 5:15 a.m., 2) make my bed, do the 7-Minute workout (this is a warm up and not my main exercise each day). ​​​I highly recommend doing something each day, even if it’s just the 7-Minute Workout.

Article I’m reading…

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons denounces mandatory vaccines, citing “no rigorous safety studies” – With vaccine fanaticism having now turned into a dangerous left-wing medical cult, it’s refreshing to hear a medical organization denouncing the dangerous idea of mandatory vaccines. Recently, The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons — an organization that supports vaccines in general — publicly denounced the pursuit of mandatory vaccination enforcement, correctly stating that there are “no rigorous safety studies” demonstrating vaccine safety.


Quote I’m pondering…
“I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”
~ John Galt in Atlas Shrugged 

That’s it for 5-Star Friday!

PS – Tool of the Week – ActiveCampaign – Simplify your marketing with this one tool. Email marketing, pipeline and contact management. It’s allowed me to let go of two other software subscriptions. I’m quite happy with this.
