25 Things About Me!
by daveandfara | on April 19, 2012
Some of you know me a little, but most of you don’t know a lot. So here are some fun facts, routine facts and even kooky facts about me! Love to learn about you too!
1.) I’m an Aquarius. Which is an air sign and I think it suits me pretty well. I’m a thinker, creative, and always beat to my own drum, independent but sensitive, and strong views on many issues which are not easily swayed.
2.) My Dad was born in Tehran Iran. My mom was born in the US- but has Polish Ancestry. So I’m a Persian Pollack!! I find it an interesting but marvelous combination! I don’t speak Farsi- but I do love Persian food! And my mom knows how to make it!
3.) My Dad is a retired OBGYN. My mom is a retired “Dad’s everything manager.”
4.) My younger sister is named Mina. She is an esteemed doctor with her specialty in infectious diseases. She has been living in Malawi for over 10 years heading up an Aids research project that has received national recognition and has saved many thousand lives.
5.) I graduated Florida State University with a B.S. in communications
6.) I attended graduate school at USC and studied broadcast journalism
7.) I’ve been with Dave since 1996. We met over a 3-way call in a company called Futurenet.
8.) I’ve got 4 schitzus- Buster, 12 Buddy, 12 Missy 12 and Chu Chu. 14 And 2 cats Sunny and Smoky
9.) Dave and I always walk the dogs twice a day. So I figure I’ve gone on a minimum of 7200 dog walks.
10.) I’ve lived in 5 states. But only California and Florida in my adult life. My living choice has been based strictly on the weather and the beach proximity.
11.) My passion has been fitness for the last 25 years. I’ve probably worked out a minimum of 2 hours a day (and that is a minimum) for the last 25 years. So I figure that’s at least 18,250 hours I’ve spent working out.
12.) I might be considered an exercise addict. In the past I couldn’t go a single day without exercising before I turned into a miserable grouch. Now I can go 1 day without going into immediate withdrawals. But not much more.
13.) I was the county spelling bee champion every year between 5th grade until I graduated high school.
14.) I’ve always loved animals. I will drop everything if I find a stray dog until I’ve reunited him with his owner. I will stop traffic to let ducks and turtles cross the road. I will stop or swerve on my bike to avoid geckos or grasshoppers in my path. I even rescue beetles, bees and various flying insects from the swimming pool.
15.) I got into network marketing when I was 24 years old. My first big hit came 4 years later with a company called Futurenet. I built a team of 10,000 distributors in 2 years before the company blew up.
16.) My diet is mainly proteins and veggies and healthy fats. I can consume many pounds of veggies in one sitting. I also love nuts. My favorite are the cocoa-flavored almonds at Sam’s club.
17.) If I could eat anything I wanted and not gain weight- I would eat more pizza and bread. And probably have ice-cream every night instead of a chocolate protein shake.
18.) My favorite ice-cream is banana split at Publix. It’s to die for!
19.) I used to be a contortionist and could do a backbends and pull my head all the way through my legs. I also used to win any race walking on my hands.
20.) I bike for 20 miles almost every day.
21.) I’ve been to 6 countries besides the US. Malawi, Zambia, Italy, Germany, Bahama- and the string of Caribbean islands.
22.) Dave and I bought a 40 ft rv so we could have a solution for what to do with the dogs on vacation. We hope do a lot of rving and go on a trip to Yellowstone this summer.
23.) I almost always root for the underdog.
24.) I’m not money motivated- but I love new challenges. My latest inspiration in conquering internet marketing.
25.) I’ve never entered a fitness show but still would like to do it at least once. If I can find a happy medium with my diet. If I do enter one this year or next, I will blog about it here!
That’s it for now. Hope you enjoyed!
