07/13/2004: "All the tempting pleasures...DENIED"
No, not sex you potty brain... I mean pizza, bagels, potato chips, rice, french fries, and on and on...
Yes, I'm off the carbs again. I was doing so well when I quit eating them, so well that I was convinced I didn't need my bi-polar meds anymore which caused me to slip into a major downward spiral that I'm just starting to crawl back up from.
So, as of a couple days ago, I've quit the carbs again, and this time I will stay on my medications no matter what. Also, my gym membership starts beginning of next month and until then I'm doing a lot of hiking, biking, and yoga to keep fit.
I will miss my couch potato ways, but if I don't start now I won't fit into my ski pants come winter...and that would be tragic! Wish me luck...
Oh yah, my fitness buddy and I are planning a trip to San Francisco (my favorite city in the states) in November to go shopping for some new threads for our (by then) sleek new bods...there are no clothing stores in Juneau, *really*.
When I go to SF, I would love to hook up with some Bay Area artists and check out their studios and also visit some new galleries. If anyone from that area reads this and would like to meet or make some suggestions on places to visit or artists to check out, please let me know. My favorite place to visit used to be the gallery at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts but according to a recent entry by SF artist Anna Conti, July 3, their funding has been cut as well as lay offs etc. and the number of exhibits there has been dwindling. Also can't wait to check out the SFMOMA.
I swear, I start to salivate everytime I read Anna's art journal; all the exhibits she gets to check out, it's absolutely amazing!
