Week #2! How long does it take to form a habit?
Having a tough time thinking of good things this week, but I’m going to try
The Hubby Still Out of Town
I’m still trying to enjoy having the house to myself. He gets home on Sunday so it’s just a few more days!
I got several achievements this week: Critter Gitter, The Northrend Gourmet (the smallest one, not the 45 recipes one), Tastes Like Chicken (sample 50 dishes), Master of Arms (raise 4 weapon skills to 400), Did Somebody Order a Knuckle Sandwich? (raise unarmed skill to 400), Stable Keeper (10 mounts), Plethora of Pets (25 pets), and Mr. Pinchy’s Magical Crawdad Box. I also maxed out my fishing skill and got my Sons of Hodir rep to Exalted (no more Hodir dailies, yay!!).
I’m trying to make some gold in game to buy the various mounts available. I’m wondering if I should buy the most expensive thing on my list (Mechano-Hog) first or the cheapest… I’ve got the gold for a 2 or 3 of the 800g mounts but I’m thinking if I buy the cheaper things first I’ll never get around to buying the Mechano-Hog. On the other hand, it’s going to take me a long time to save up 12k gold (I’m currently making a couple hundred per day but I don’t know how consistent that will be). Anywhoo, things to ponder…
There’s been an odd confluence of articles coming across my computer screen the last few weeks. I keep finding things talking about organic foods and hormones and high fructose corn syrup and how all of that is affecting our weight and health. Usually I take this kind of stuff with whole heaping handfuls of salt because I’ve seen too many fads that pull a 180 a few years later (margarine and eggs just off the top of my head). I think that most things can be ok in moderation and anything can be harmful in excess. However, these couple of articles aren’t some celebrity pushing their fad diet, they’re scientific studies with what seems to be valid data (however, most of it has not been reproduced yet). Most of the experiments I’m seeing have been done on lab rats so they could be exaggerated when it comes to human application. On the other hand, common sense tells me that non-processed/organic foods are going to be better for me than processed foods.
I don’t want to become crazy about any one thing. I would, however, like to cut the processed foods we eat in our house and increase the organic foods we eat. I don’t have a ”plan” formulated yet, but it’s something I think I need to do.
On that note, I’m signing off for the week. Have a great weekend and enjoy this beautiful weather (assuming your weather is as gorgeous as mine is!)
