I have a great family, two children to take care of. Then, of course, I do a commentary on TV. I do speak about various women's issues around the world - like LGBT, motivational speeches. I have a lot on my plate right now. But eventually, yes, I would like to pass on the knowledge and something that I would like to do.
The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved
the pig is committed.
I'll do some running with the dogs, ride a bike
if I go to the gym it's usually for cardio. I don't do weights as much
every once in awhile, I throw in some pushups and do leg exercises to strengthen my legs.
