OK, I know... I have been kinda MIA for a bit... but I have been BUSY!!!! I mean, it is HARD to spend time with a husband home on R&R, continue with college, go to work, and try to keep up with the diet and exercise thing AND blog!!!!
OK, so I am a slacker... deal with it.
So this is what is up. I am on my second to my last class before I finish my Bachelors degree, then in the beginning of next year I will start on my Masters. I have lost almost 60 pounds total since I started dieting and exercise and am feeling pretty damn good about myself. My husband was even so excited about it he spent almost $1000 at Victoria's Secret on me. Him. Shopping. Online. Without my knowledge. I ended up with a bunch of TX Longhorns, Dallas Cowboys, and Army gear! He bought all smalls, but lucky for me they are all from the Pink line and all fit.
I find myself getting increasingly annoyed with misspellings, or just ignorant remarks... like one person I know just got diagnosed with PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) and:
#2 Is acting like she was just diagnosed with cancer or AIDS or something
OK, I have PCOS. I have had it for YEARS. When I found out I never acted like I was going to die, I never was "in shock" over the news. I never blamed the reason I was fat on it either. I know it is hard to lose weight when you have it, but not any harder than losing weight normally (I think). When I started dieting in April I began eating like a diabetic (for the most part), I watched my portions, I watched my calories, etc, etc, etc... the weight started coming off. It was a lot easier than I thought! I just had to get the "I have PCOS so I cannot lose weight" out of my head.
I AM SO SICK OF PEOPLE FEELING SORRY FOR THEMSELVES! OK, I know this deployment is hard on the spouses left behind. I know it is hard not hearing from your spouse for days or weeks at a time. I know we miss our spouses... BUT STOP DWELLING ON IT AND FIND SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE TO DO! Also, to the women who's husbands leave for a one week business trip: I am so sick of reading about how hard it is to be away from them. You. Have. No. Idea.
I keep myself busy because I do not want to become a blubbering mess. I talk to people about anything BUT Army or my husband because I have a life away from that. Talk to me about shopping, True Blood, Game of Thrones, new movies... hell GOSSIP about other people so I can giggle, but don't be a constant downer. It is ok to have moments, but not 24/7 moments.
So yeah... whew... been a while since I had a good rant! On all of that I will leave you with this:
