What was your favorite food when you were a child? Gosh, I don't remember...I was not the kind of kid who would ate junk food. Come to think of it, I always ate at home what my parents fed me. :) I lived in Mexico City until I was 7.95 years old and my favorite food there was...probably fruit. We didn't have a lot in Mexico, so junk food WAS NOT available nor accessible. When I arrived in L.A. (within 10 days I turned 8 years old), the first thing I ever tried was WHOLE MILK! It was the tastiest, most delicious thing my little sister Laura and I had ever had in our lives! (Today I would not put that in my mouth again!) I remember asking our mom for "¡Más, más por favor!" (More please!). I used to love whole milk and Kix cereal!
What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod? Wow, I don't know...I usually listen to the same music over and over, ha! I listen to my iPod only when I work out, so for about 1 hour 5-6 days a week. (I limit the amount of time wearing earphones/music in order to preserve my hearing til old age). I get so pumped when I listen to Rage Against the Machine, Led Zeppelin, U2, The Beatles, most recently Aerosmith or any classic or alternative rock band.
What is one of your favorite quotes? I have tons of favorite quotes, but my all time favorite and one and that I try to live by each day is: "Be the change you wish to see in the world" by Mahatma Ghandi.
What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity? Indoor- pumping iron in the gym! For the past 4 months my husband and I have been training together and it's great! Outdoor- hiking or walking in the beach sand with my husband; I also enjoy hiking and camping out with my husband and family in a National Park.
What chore do you absolutely hate doing? I don't mind cleaning because I like organization, so I try to stay tidy-- but I can also get really messy. I really hate washing the dishes....My husband and I agreed he'll wash the dishes and I'll do laundry. :)
What is your favorite form of exercise? Form of exercise: Weight training.I enjoy all kinds of exercise-- I love moving my body, but I get the most out of training with weights. I love the feeling of pushing myself and how it weights have transformed by body to be fit. I feel weights literally challenge my mind to the tiniest little muscle and tendon in my body.
What is your favorite time of day/day of the week/month of the year?
Any time of the day is my favorite. I am working on being more mindful and just living in the present at any moment, I try to make the most out of it. It's a hard thing to do (mindfulness) but it's so amazing to be in the present and regret the past or stress about the future.
What’s your least favorite mode of transportation? I guess traveling long distances (hours) in a bus because I will most likely need to use the bathroom since I drink a lot of water!
What is your favorite body part? I have come to appreciate and love who I am; love every part of my body, inside and out.
What sound do you love? I love the sound of my husbands sexy voice. ;) I love the sound of children laughing. I also love all sounds of nature, the wind blowing, the rain falling and the sound of birds. I wish I could say, "the sound of wild animals," but I've never seen them in real life other than at the zoo and I haven't been to a zoo in years. I would probably feel too sad to see them locked up :( OH!! I just remembered when I was in the jungle in Chiapas, Mexico I heard some amazing, amazing sounds of black monkeys! I never actually saw them though, just heard them and it was so wonderful! I have never heard sounds that unique and amazing!
