So I’ve decided to give up Colts games for Lent. Ha ha ha ha ha. Seriously, watching and following the Colts (and my fantasy team) took up a major portion of my “leisure activities” for the months of September-January. I got used to checking nfl.com, espn.com, and all of the Colts and Chiefs blogs this fall/winter, that now I don’t really know what I will do to fill that void. I did a jigsaw puzzle the other day. I haven’t done a puzzle in a long time. I guess I will now have time.
Last Wednesday night a friend of mine at church challenged me to go the entire month of February drinking nothing but water. I accepted the challenge, and we are both now drinking only water. All food is fair game, but I am watching what I eat as well (mostly just cutting down on portion sizes and sweets). Should be interesting. I started eating less and exercising more in mid-January, and I lost 12 pounds by February 1st. Now I have lost another pound as of yesterday when I awoke. 13 down, 62 to go!
Today is Super Tuesday. I guess we will get to see if the nation’s conservatives have been hoodwinked by McCain and Romney or not. As a Republican, I have always voted for the most conservative person on the ticket. That has always been the Republican candidate. However, this year we have: Billary (liberal), Osama (liberal), McCain (liberal), Romney (liberal), and Huckabee (conservative). I have pretty much decided that I am going to vote for Huckabee for President. If Huckabee drops out, I will be voting for a write-in candidate (who will obviously not win) but I will not be held responsible for choosing a liberal President.
