Well, I had really good intentions again today. But! I got sucked into gadget hell. I decided I needed an "FM receiver with headphones" so I could hear the TVs at the gym, instead of just seeing them. Remember Reason #3 (I think) for Not Going to a Gym-I get bored easily.
So, I went online to look for one, having no idea what it was. I figured out I wasn't going to carry a big stereo component in there, and that basically an FM receiver was just an ipod with radio reception capability. Aha! I thought I might have one of those. I found the ipod I got for Christmas a year and a half ago. And sure enough, it does have that feature, although I have never used the thing because I didn't know how. All of you! Do Not Laugh!!!! While I was looking at the directions, I decided I might as well download some music onto the thing. That's what it's for, right? So, I put Big Bad Voodoo Daddy http://www.bbvd.com/index2.html and Buckwheat Zydeco http://www.buckwheatzydeco.com/ on there, thinking that they are both pretty much "Get Moving" music.
Okay, that accomplished, easily if a little time-consuming, I unplugged it from the puter, put a battery in, put the headphones in and started pushing buttons. It started okay, I could even get FM reception and preset a smooth jazz station for practice in setting stations, but I can not get my music to play! I really need an under 40 assist here. All of that took way more than an hour.
I finally got dressed in my workout clothes, put on my pedometer, decided not to reset my pace length today, and then it started to rain - bigtime. I mean like I couldn't see 10 feet away. I looked at the weather forecast online and there was a flood warning. So, that is my excuse for not going to the gym today.
But! I did check out where there are WeightWatcher meetings close by and what my health insurance helps with. I also found out the local Parks and Rec gym has a fitness room that I'm going to check out this weekend because it's free.
I'd really like to get some pictures and a weight tracker on here, and I am sure I will eventually, but enough techno challenges for today.
