I haven't felt this exhausted in my bones for a while - I had a client meeting the next day, and they remarked on how tired I looked. 

It started off with seeing my sister in NYC, then headed up to Boston to see a (former) San Diego friend who moved there with his girlfriend... then ended with a wonderful wedding in NC. 

I have to say - I loved being back on the East Coast. While the weather didn't agree with me, it was a nice reminder of who I am in my bones - I'm culturally Southern. I was asked many times on this trip how much longer I planned on living in SD. The short answer is I don't know. Nothing ties me down here, except the feeling that this is *home* for me now. 

There's a short list of cities I could see myself living in after San Diego: Barcelona, New York, and Boston. When I settle down, I want to move somewhere in the South or Midwest - I don't think SD is the best for raising a family. But we'll see. 

. . .

I've decided to start a soft diet after talking to a friend about the paleo diet. My willpower when it comes to food is non-existent, so this will be a gradual process. This month, I plan on avoiding sodas, Jamba Juice, and fast food. If I can accomplish those three, that'll be a big achievement for me (especially JJ - I LOVE that stuff). 

I realized it's such a shame that I work out, and then eat junk food to basically cancel that out. So let's see what happens this month...

I am on the same boat as you! I tried the GM diet before and I think it's a hoax! :P

I swear by "Don't Eat Like A Lunatic" diet, if there is such a thing! I am also hoping I can just get away with the "workout hard and eat whatever". I believe the purpose of burning all those calories is so that I can afford to take in a bit more without the guilt.

P.S. I'm glad Tabulas is still here!!

Jina and I started the 'GM Diet' Tuesday when you left. Not sure if it were your departure of the cabbage soup but I've been cranky since then.

Managing my diet is so hard because I enjoy food so much. Most people that have it under control seem to view food merely as sustenance, which I refuse to do. I must warn you though sir, I've been trying to master the 'workout hard and eat whatever you want' diet and... well, look at me sir.

Dude, of course it's me that's causing you to be cranks.

Haha... I might be able to get away with the "workout hard and eat whatever" due to the genetics of my body - I still have a pretty high metabolism.

Good luck on the GM diet. Let me know how it works out.
