Waiting for Grey’s…

July 30, 2007 at 7:51 pm | Posted in Grey's | 3 Comments

Is anybody ready for Grey’s?!?! I looked today and I can’t find the date for the first episode. I guess we will all know because they will run the commercial over and over. I have spent all summer only watching reruns of Friends, That 70’s Show and the Wonder Years. I am ready for some drama!!

This is a lazy day!

Just some quick updates!

*I am excited to be at home for the day! We have one more week of summer left at the Boys & Girl’s Club! We made it through the summer (almost!) I am very ready for the school year.

*I am pretty sure that I am having my wisdom teeth (all 4) taken out hopefully on the 9th. I am really nervous- I have never been knocked out before.

*We keep fighting the urge to get a dog again. I think we made it through though. We are quite satisfied with our cat. We really grow to love her more and more everyday. She has been so fun here lately!!

*Netflix rocks my world!! So far I have watched: Tristen and Isolde, Dream Girls and Pride and Prejudice. The first two were ok- I LOVED Pride and Prejudice! The Scarlet Letter came in today! I have had a nitch for old literature here lately!!

*I am going to be better at blogging.

*Does anybody’s husband think it is quite hilarious to let out his AWFUL gas while riding in the close quarters of a car??? Steven was laughing so hard that he was crying the other night while my head was hanging out the window like a dog gasping for air. He will think its real funny one day when I throw up in his lap!!

*I am not jinxing anything yet but I think my face might actually be clearing up a little. I have tried: Proactive, like 3 different kinds from Walmart, Arbonne’s Anti Age line, we bought Clinique stuff and took it back and FINALLY Arbonne’s Clear Advantage line might be actually working a little!! I am still crossing my fingers!!

*Steven and Jimmie were really sweet to come to the club and hang up my new marker board at word on Friday! Thanks again!

*I have 5 more days of getting up at 5am!!! Its getting harder and harder every morning. Steven has been home all week this week and I am not kidding when I say that every morning he got up, fixed me coffee, loaded my car and saw me off to work. He is so sweet to me. I would have been late like 3 mornings if he hadn’t helped me!!

*We did Super Suppers the other night with Jamie. I am very very excited about some of the food we have in our freezer right now!!

Hope you all are doing great! Thanks for heading over to my new site. Stay with me, I shouldn’t be moving for a while 🙂

I just found this picture on a friend’s facebook in cookeville. I know some of you might not believe this but I jumped off of this cliff. This was the most daring thing I have ever done!!!! I look at this picture and still cannot believe that I did this.

Trying to make a difference…

July 10, 2007 at 12:35 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 8 Comments

I need to vent.
In highschool I never ever struggled with weight issues. I was always so skinny. So much of it was because I was playing softball, basketball and constantly active. The last year or so I have really slowed down. I sit a lot more at work and work on the computer, I have a nice comfortable house that I love to come home and watch TV in, I am not playing any sports and honestly I have just gotten very lazy. Needless to say, I have been gaining some weight. All of the sudden my legs, hips, and love handles have grown a little.
Can I just confess that this has become the BIGGEST struggle for me? I feel defeated before I walk out the door to work out. I CANNOT make myself do something and half the time my mind is thinking, “Maris- you should just give in. You are never going to look like you did in highschool again, you should just let it go and give in.” I feel very very unattractive and hardly any of my clothes are fitting. I am so very discouraged. You have no idea how hard it is to write this blog. I am sitting here crying knowing this is a reality and that in order for it to change I have to do something. My mind is filled with lies that convince me to just keep laying on the couch. I try so hard to eat good, but all of the sudden food has become comfort and all I think about. What is happening to me? I know that beauty is on the inside and you don’t have to be skinny to be beautiful and all of that stuff that we should tell ourselves. This is past all of this. There comes to be a line you cross when you know that your body does not naturally look like that and it is only because you have been lazy. Only you know what you are supposed to look like.
I just got back from running/walking. I did it for 20 mins and thought I was going to die. I am about to do Tae Bo (which I love).
I guess I just wrote this to get all of it out and confess my sin and struggles. This all consumes my thoughts and has me down more than anybody probably knows about. My poor husband is probably running out of things to say and has no idea how big this issue really is to me. I just feel defeated and I guess I am needing help or prayers. I want so badly to run in a half marathon or some kind of race. I throw up the defense mechanism all the time. I honestly do not think I could do it. That is why I don’t try. I would be afraid that I would quit and let everybody down. I don’t know why I am writing all of this but honestly it just feels really good to let it out. So there you go. These are my biggest life struggles and I have no clue where to start. Any suggestions?

Celebrating Jimmie and Laura!

Today is finally here! We are approaching the week of the Ingram wedding. Today we get to throw a shower for our sweet Laura. It is so much fun to celebrate your friends in one of the most exciting times of their lives. I know that there are a couple friends in the state of Texas that would love to be here with us today but its ok we will see you soon! I cannot wait to take some pics of everybody and put them on here, especially at the wedding. We love you Laura and can’t wait for you to relax, open presents and have fun during this part of the journey with your husband (almost!!)
