AresPandora Posted April 22, 2015 Author Report Share Posted April 22, 2015 SO.....I made something not-so-healthy today: sweet potato chips. I was really craving a good hard crunch and lettuce just wasn't handling it, and I'd already had about 200 grams of celery during lunch. So I made them. I guess it's good that I didn't go to the store and buy any, and there wasn't anything on them, just plain, but it satisfied the craving. I don't feel bad about it at all. It's not like I'm going to go through that trouble all the time, goodness no. Perhaps next time I should try baking them instead. I'm not sure how that would turn out, but it's gotta be better than frying. Good thing is that the momentary depression/hate cycle has ceased. I still have that half kilo, it just doesn't bother me so much anymore. Nothing like throwing yourself into work to take your mind off yourself! Speaking of, it's mid-term week. I simply love giving tests. haha. I'm going to a separate kind of hell for that one. Only thing is with tests, you also have to grade them. Bugger. My shins are in incredible amounts of pain still, but I think that's more because I wear non-supportive shoes at work. And most of my work is standing and walking. I think my shin splints happened in the first place because of the shoes I bought to replace my older running shoes. I hated them from the start, but broke them in and wore them all the time. I still hate them, but I hate wasting money more. Alas, lesson learned. Your feet will tell you when your shoes suck.For now I'm going to put back on my old shoes, try to get away with them at work, and maybe try a short bout of running on Friday. Ice, rest, and ibuprofen for my legs until then. Second mini-upper-body-only workout done this week. I was really hoping to be running today, but as soon as I got back from work my legs were on fire. Tried one jumping jack and my shins cried for mercy. Boy do I wish I had a massage therapist as a partner. Anyway, enough blabbering. Back to my jug of water that needs to be finished tonight 1 Quote Ares Pandora,level 4 Mutant ScoutSTR: 7 | DEX 2 | STA 8 | CON 9 | WIS 5 | CHA 4 Challenges:1 | 2 | 2.1 | 3 | 4 Link to comment
