The gym, the ipod, the pain in my butt

8th March 2009

The gym, the ipod, the pain in my butt

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it on my blog before, but we joined the gym a few months ago. I started out going 5-6 days a week, normally early in the morning. That steadied out to about 3-4 mornings a week. I started to feel a real difference, my clothes were fitting differently although I hadn’t actually lost any weight. Then the kids got sick, I got sick, and 5am at the gym just didn’t have the same appeal. I’ve continued going at least twice a week, but not as committed as before.

My mom loaned me her ipod and Handsome put about 45 minutes of music on there, but after going to the gym so often I was getting really sick of it. To the point that I’d watch the news at the gym or if I went in the afternoon I’d get caught up watching something like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, which is a definite time sucker.

Anyway. I told Handsome last night that I really needed to get back into going to the gym early in the morning. A great way to start my day and makes sure I get it done. But I just couldn’t handle listening to the same 30 minutes of music anymore. Could he please, pretty please teach me how to put music on my ipod?

Now. For my frugal friends out there that think I download music from itunes, don’t despair. I don’t. We have quite a CD collection, mostly CDs that are over 10 years old, purchased before we got married and started budgeting. So I’ve been going through our CDs and finding long lost friends, like Sarah Laughing (that’s actually the name of a band) that I got free when I saw them in concert as part of my job at Fresno Bible House in college.  And Steven Curtis Chapman’s greatest hits. And Point of Grace. I have three of their CDs!! I think I’m dating myself. I’m not 20 anymore.

Anyway, although I’m enjoying finding all this great music I’m also hating itunes and my computer. I have a laptop that has seen better days and the little mousey thing is really not liking me tonight.

But I’ve got some new music, about 1.6 hours of it according to the counter thing. And so if you see me at the gym tomorrow morning I’ll be the one dancing on the treadmill.
