CD ripping is done for now/Advice for Gym Newbies
So the CD ripping is 99.5% done. There are 10 CDs in the disc changer in the boat that are left plus a couple box sets that could be ripped. I have a feeling we already have most of the songs on the boxed sets anyway. Plus, they are buried under all the Maxim magazines that the husband has kept and I really don't feel like trying to get them out. I mean I can see it now, I find myself buried and unable to move under stacks of Maxim magazines and the guys working on the house find me. LOL.
So this being the first week of the year at the gym it tends to be really interesting. Monday was kinda busy a couple new faces but mainly regulars who were getting back in the groove. Tuesday night was actually pretty slow but there were 2 new faces and new to working out. I felt bad for them because I could tell they had no idea what they were doing. Now, I didn't offer any help nor did they ask for help and honestly if I see them again at the gym I'll be surprised. Now I'll give them credit for coming to the gym but that's it. They were totally unprepared. No idea what they were going to do. I mean one of them went from the elliptical, the treadmill to the bike all in less then 20 minutes. She did not work hard enough to sweat and complained her feet were too tired from work to stay on the treadmill where she was only walking. Sometimes I wish gaining weight physically hurt, like each fat cell expanding was like a bee sting. Because if it hurt, there would be no fat people since everyone seems to shy away from things that make them hurt. I mean after 2 days at the gym and a dance class sitting here without even moving I have soreness in my left hamstring, my neck and shoulders/biceps. I really think many people have a hard time differentiating from good pain to bad pain. I'll be honest it can be very uncomfortable working out, sometimes it hard to breath, sometimes I want to throw up. But how I feel when I'm done, the results in the way my clothes fit and when I pick up my 50 lbs niece and throw her around and am not tired, it is all totally worth it.
So newbies at the gym my advice to you is this: get a plan, break a sweat, stock up on aleve. You can do it and you'll be glad you did. If you don't think you can do it, get outta my way cuz I'm gonna do it!
