New Year....Not So New Stuff

Sometimes I want to shoot people.

Not in the litteral sense, mind you, but I honestly don't understand where some of these Navy Wives put their brains.

I would love to go into more deatil, but that would mean possibly offending someone who might read this, and also, reliving it in my brain, suffering more anguish and getting all...pseudo-homicidal again. We don't want that, now do we?

Let's just say....I am frustrated as Deployment looms closer...

Speaking of frustration, I have started limiting myself to 1500 calories a day in an effort to lose 35 lbs. So far I have lost 3 lbs since the new year. This is especially encouraging, since I work at a restaurant where I can't count all the calories, so I guesstimate, like...if I had a cup of chili I say that's 400 calories, when it probably was only about 250. I managed to stay under 1500 yesterday. I was proud. it is difficult at times, because I love to eat. And the quitting smoking thing did not help with my weight. But I think I may be able to lose a large amount, simply by changing my diet. I can hardly wait until I have time to actually exercise.

Other than work, Boat Wives, and trying to lose weight, my life is pretty much the same since my last big update. Busy but not terribly exciting....

I hope you all have started off to a good New Year!

I Just Had to Post This...

Thanks to Jeopardygirl for this.....

William Shakespeare

What's in a Cissa? That which we call a rose
By any other Cissa would smell as sweet.

Which work of Shakespeare was the original quote from?
