nothing to see here

Ughs. I was all ready to go jogging. Just had to grab my mp3 player. Then I heard a sound.. Checked outside to be sure. Rain. =( I don't have the ambition to go out running in the rain. But, I do plan on going on a climbing ride tomorrow morning. (Then, I can come home and go to sleep).

I picked up a new scale. It's digital. I'm not sure how accurate it is. It gives me -8ish lbs and maskm about +5 lbs. It also gives us similar numbers for our %fat and %h2o. I think I'll just have to use it for a while before I get 'used' to the new numbers. I need to make sure I lose 5-10 lbs in the next 2 weeks to ensure I meet the weight requirements for skydiving. Jogging tonight would help.

I'm cooking some chicken leg+thighs on top of carrots, peppers and some celery. Used some 'orange ginger' sauce on the chicken (just layered it on before sticking it in the oven). I wonder how it will taste. I think last week I went through a vegetable withdraw. Earlier I made some green beans and sweet peppers with soy and terriaki sauces and some toasted sesame oil. So.. Very.. Tasty.. I think I'm also going to work on a more low-carb diet change. I know I have some issues with carbs already (if I eat carbs then sit down, sometimes I have a hard time staying awake - normally it's a problem during weekly lab meetings, but last week I fell asleep in class, too). So, if I cut back on the amount of carbs I eat at any given time, I think that should stop the (recurring) problem. It will also help me prepare, I guess, for if I become a diabetic (which is likely).
