My garden – it’s my first one and I’m still trying to figure some things out.
Cucumbers (although the heat has nearly killed them), tomatoes (roma and golden cherry tomatoes), Thai hot peppers, basil, watermelon, green beans (but the aphids killed those), multi-colored carrots, swiss chard and buttercrunch lettuce.
Best thing about having two sweet bambinos?
Seeing their own little personalities develop. Cooper has a lot of empathy and is a really caring kid and Bridgette is very assertive and bright. I like to think they both got those traits from me.
I actually have a playlist on my iPhone called “Car” (no really, I’m not making that up) and it has a variety on it: Kid Rock, Michael Franti, Eminem, P.O.D., Gym Class Heroes, Ke$ha, Linkin Park, and a few others.
For yoga I really like Michael Franti and Marc Broussard and for cycling my favorite is a mixture of cheesy pop music and angry rock.
“Dancing with Myself” by Billy Idol. Just kidding–I don’t dance.
Swing – because I can’t dance and that move makes me feel like I can (at least on a bike).
My office – I was really stressed one day so I just shut the door and practiced in between a filing cabinet and my desk chair.
Supta Bada Konasana with my feet bound with a blanket and a bolster under by back.
My favorites to build energy are Warrior 2 and Half Moon
I really can’t name just one – how ’bout I give you a top five? These are in no particular order:
- Hagen Daas plain chocolate ice cream
- crème brûlée
- monster cookies (which I prefer to make myself)
- chocolate peanut butter cheesecake (from my own kitchen)
- fresh peaches
First of all, I love that you’re asking me this question. This is a tough call– if we’re going just with physical appearance then Joe Maganiello (who dances to “Can I” by Tank… and you can see exactly why his stage name is “Big Dick Richie”). If we’re factoring in dancing ability here, then the answer is clearly Channing Tatum (who dances to “Pony” by Ginuwine and “Calypso” by Excision & Datsik).
Lisabeth Salander from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Yeah, she’s a little effed up but she’s crazy smart, resourceful and strong and she has her own beliefs and morals that she follows in a completely unwavering capacity.
Diet Coke with lime and the Cherry Diet Coke to make Cherry Limeade Diet Coke!
Completely changing the direction of my life at the age of 30. It was a scary thing to give up the security and familiarity I had to get divorced, give up going to law school and become a yoga teacher but it was, without a doubt, the best decision I’ve ever made. I just decided that no one was going to come around and ask if I wanted to be happy so I figured I had to get that way on my own.
