Gym Funnies!

As you all may already know, I am a gym fanatic. Working out is something I truly enjoy and it is a great stress reliever. My workout location has changed a bit and visiting a larger gym sometimes makes me realize the funny things people do...especially newcomers. So...if you are a gym newbie, are planning to be soon, or just don't pay attention to proper gym etiquette pay attention to this list of DON'T's.
1. DON'T bring your McDonalds, pizza hut, or any other food into the gym! I have actually witnessed this on several occasions. There I am running my rear off(hopefully literally) and here comes a car full of large women toting in the big mac meals. I for one LOVE a good Big Mac, but not while I am working out!!! That is the last thing I need for motivation unless you have it tied to a string and make me chase it around the gym.
2. DON'T wear your spandex pants and underwear. Most women don't realize this, but if you look in the seat area of proper gym clothing there is built in underwear. This is for a reason. The "no panty line" rule goes for the gym as well!
3. DON'T utilize a machine if you are not working out on it. Again, see this all the time. Someone sitting on a machine reading a book or chatting on their cell phone. This is fine if you are utilizing your 60 seconds between sets, but not for a half hour. Ug....drives me nuts!
4. DON'T talk to anyone while in the middle of their set. Imagine this....big bodybuilder man has 400 pounds on his shoulder, red faced, and making huge grunting noises. Don't walk up to him and ask anything during this time. Common sense should tell you to walk in the opposite direction. I know I am not a bodybuilder by any means, but here I am in the middle of my crunches and someone walks up to me and asks me how to workout their core. Huh?
5. DON'T wear your snow boots, slippers, cowboy boots, hunting boots, or flip flops on the machines. Yep, I have seen this one too. Someone walks in with their boots on, packed with mud and steps on the treadmill. Nice!
6. DON'T stand behind me and stare at my backside while I am working out. I am flattered and all, but it seriously ruins my mojo when you are gawking. Take a pic with your cell phone and move on!
7. DON'T wear spandex if you can't get away with it. I am going to touch a little more on #2. I see women come in all the time with their little gym top and spandex shorts/pants. It is VERY rare a person looks good in spandex. VERY RARE! Unless you are one of the trainers...don't do it! I don't want to know exactly what you look like naked, and especially while you are flopping your stuff around on the treadmill.
8. DON'T stink up the place! A gym naturally smells enough as it is. Wear deodorant, wash your gym clothes, and please control your flatulence problem.
9. DON'T take a smoke break. There is just something that doesn't quite sit well with me when you are pausing your workout to go smoke a cig. Huh? Gym and cigs don't really go together and you stink up the place when you come back in.
10. DON'T use the gym as a social gathering place. I see people come in there that have been there ALL day and they aren't working out at all. They chit chat, shower, shave, chit chat some more, then maybe do a few sets, then have to shower again. GO HOME! I don't go to the gym to socialize. I will say "hello". That's fine, but once I plug my ipod earphone into my ears. They stay there unless you are on fire and screaming at me to help.
Well, that's all for now. Oh....I have a ton more...believe me! I didn't even touch on the track!

Frustration...but Letting Go!

Church was an amazing blessing this morning. Having FAITH is one of the hardest things to accomplish (for me anyway). Trusting that we are following what God has planned is not easy. I feel we overlook signs and refuse to fall when commanded. I am a BIG believer in signs. I think God hands us signs everyday. Some we see, some we don't see, and some we don't want to see.

Has there ever been someone in your life that has done something so incredibly wrong to you that you just can't let go of it? Have you ever known someone that was completely blinded and had their head in the sand? Maybe this person has wrong information, maybe they are only getting one sentence of an incredibly long story, or maybe they are just simply ignorant to what is right and what is wrong. I learned today that God doesn't want us to hang on to things like this. It is not up to us to to to make someone see what they cannot. It is not up to us to try and "FIX" someones' wrongs. God will take care of that in the end....he ALWAYS does. We need to walk with him, beside him, and put our faith and trust in ONLY him. Everyone else will just let you down.

On this day I pray for strength, forgiveness, and the ability to let myself let myself follow what God has in store for me.

I am going to move subjects a little. On the way home from church this morning I heard an amazing song. I have always liked this artist, but her songs have never really hit me like it did today. Christina Perri has an amazing voice. Her stories are amazing and her blog is great too. She has had a life filled with music and has had to deal with a lot of heartbreak. Her brother plays guitar for Shinedown also!

Here are a couple of her beautiful songs. I, of course, have my favorites, but LOVE them all. Check her out and join her site at! She will be HUGE!

Jar of Hearts

i know i can't take one more step towards you
cause all that’s waiting is regret
don't you know i'm not your ghost anymore
you lost the love i loved the most

i learned to live, half alive
and now you want me one more time

who do you think you are?
runnin' 'round leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
tearing love apart
you're gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
don't come back for me
who do you think you are?

i hear you're asking all around
if i am anywhere to be found
but i have grown too strong
to ever fall back in your arms

ive learned to live, half alive
and now you want me one more time

who do you think you are?
runnin' 'round leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you're gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
don't come back for me
who do you think you are?

it took so long just to feel alright
remember how to put back the light in my eyes
i wish i had missed the first time that we kissed
cause you broke all your promises
and now you're back
you don't get to get me back

who do you think you are?
running around leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you're gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
so don't come back for me
dont come back at all


who do you think you are?
who do you think you are?
who do you think you are?

Together on the Front Porch

It has been a wonderful few days feels good to feel a little good again. Life gets you so down sometimes, that you forget about the good things. We had a wonderful Anniversary (and still have a great date to look forward to this weekend!)...yay! I am so excited to get out with the hubby alone. It has been a long time. He got me an iphone4 for our anniversay (which I LOVE) and some new workout clothes. Yes! He went and bought me clothes! I was SHOCKED! I got him a Green Egg Smoker Grill (which he has been wanting for a couple of years now). They are just so darn expensive, you have to save those purchases for something really

Eventhough the iphone is super amazing, the best gifts are always the words that are written and spoken on those days.

Many anniversaries from now, when we have been together for a very long time, I wonder what it will be like. Will we share extra blankets to keep warm? Count the stars from our front porch rockers? Dream older, wiser dreams, or be contented with the memories we've made?

Of course, I can't predict the future, but I'll tell you what I do know - if we use extra blankets, I'll still need to hold you close. If we sit in our rockers, mine will be right next to yours. And no matter how old or wise we become, I'll still want the feel of your gently hand in mine...

I guess what I'm trying to say is, I look forward to whatever the future may hold - as long as my future holds you.

Happy Anniversary.

Love, Your Husband

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend! Stay safe and have loads of fun! Send out Summer in Style!!! We will be gearing up for a huge four wheeler weekend next weekend! Unfortunatley, I ALWAYS have midterms on labor day weekend...who plans that? It's crazy! I only have 3 classes left I come! I can see the light!
