I'm Voting Republican

I'm actually going through writer's block, but came across this on YouTube and thought I'd post it. I'm sure most of you have probably seen it before.

Bet you can't guess how I'm really gonna vote, huh?

In case you're confused allow me to clarify.

Not that I've been a lifelong Republican or even one for 10 seconds.

The internet is up and running at Chez H. So hopefully this bout will go and I'll be my witty ol' writing-too-much for my own self soon.

As an aside, I've lost 16 pounds (granted I probably put 5 or 6 on before this competition began, but I'm pleased nonetheless)

I'll get back to that Cars and Boys Blog soon too as soon as this writer's block rash clears.

Oh For F's Sake!

This is ridiculous. All these people do is go around teaching others about sustainability, but now that the Republican Convention is coming to the Twin Cities (my birthplace, by the way) , they are suddenly grouped in as being Anarchists and have had their home taken away.

Another reason why I won't be voting for McCain.

I'm a Loser, Baby

About 16 of us at work all put in £20 to enter our own "Biggest Loser" contest. For those of you not familiar with this it is from the US television show "The Biggest Loser" in the US. We all weighed in this morning and after 12 weeks the person who loses the highest percentage of body weight wins the pot (that's £320!)

So, I've been eating and eating and eating for the last week knowing my weigh-in was today. I was eating to the point of being sick practically. And it worked. Holy shmolly!! I'm the heaviest I have ever been. Now it's time to lose.

Today, I begin a smart healthy diet and I am now back on my bike. I will be cycling to Esher, where the shuttle gets us, 3 days this week and hopefully more next week. This is a total of 6 miles a day on those days. On at least two other days I will complete long (5k and above) run/walks. There will be one day

Part of the reason I am only cycling for only 3 days this week is that I am preparing Friday Treats. I plan on continuing to making my ever so delicious brownies and banana bread, but I may label them as 'low fat' as a bit of a joke. I will be brining in healthy stuff as well and labelling it 'high fat' so people get it.

I'm actually quite relieved to be eating correctly again. It was getting to be a chore to pig out everyday, and that is something I never thought I would say.
