My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Your body is your temple and live by your heart.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I have a tendency to dismiss sleep. As in right now. Working towards 2 a.m.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. During my TV segments, I have to be very cautious about the word "absolutely." It's my go-to word that's fancier than "yes"...but I can absolutely use it too often, absolutely.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. My greatest achievement is in progress. I'd love to get back to you on this one: after my kids are accepted to colleges AND I've managed to save enough to fund their tuitions! But if I can manage to live each day fully, present and aware of my actions and interactions with those around me, then that's the daily work that applies towards a greater whole.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People who are inexplicably rude: boy, does that get my goat.
