[Stefani] Graciela: I try to work out as often as I can but being on the road is really hard, my trainer is about ready to hang me because I keep eating all the junk food; there's no place on the road that sells healthy food

[Heather] just acting on stage is a workout so I couldn't even imagine singing hehe
[Vaca] What has motherhood taught you, how has it changed your view of life?
[Stefani] Vaca: more responsibilities, very deep love and being unselfish; everything that I do is for her future, that's why I work as hard as I do


[Graciela] I guess performing must help you stay in shape, it looks like exercise to me..
[Stefani] Graciela: yeah it is, specially when I wear vynil pants and sweat, that's the best way! :)


[Tex] Stefani have you considered have more web presence on the internet?
[Stefani] Tex: I don't have a lot of time because I'm always out of town, doing interviews and it's hard for me to do this


[Selena] I can't stand sitting in them for 5 minutes, I can only imagine what you go through performing in them hehe
[Selena] those vinyl pants are so uncomfortable!
[Stefani] Selena: they sure are! :)


[Tex] lol
[Tex] me too
[Heather] I buy them like 3 sizes big so I have room in them hehe
[Stefani] Heather: mine are 3 sizes too small so they don't move at all :)


[Selena] they don't sell em 3 sizes to big here, the biggest one is size 3 hehe
[Choosh] is it getting hot in here or is it just me?
[Stefani] Choosh: it's just you! :)
