I don't know about you, but I go to the gym to relax and as a form of entertainment. Times are tough and with me out of work it is everything I can do to keep us fed these days, and if I didn't have a 2 yr contract at the gym, I would probably have dropped it by now to save money. Anyway...I am doing my fasting cardio when a couple of gals climb on the cross trainers next to me and start talking about how hard they have it, they have missed so much gym time when they were in Vegas and then next week off to Texas....then how they were hiring a maid because she didn't want to break a nail (fake ones) when cleaning one of the 4 bathrooms in the huge house............I really really do not need to be subjected to this pretentious crap when I am trying to de-stress......all it does is make me feel worse and it pretty much ruined my workout. Yes, I got in my time and got a workout, but it lost it's stress relief value....
Just had to vent...
seems like the more people have, the more they complain and bitch. simple is good.
Headphones are amazing! I dont train with other women but the men drive me nuts.I am utilizing my headphones more and more.
yea, I was wishing I had something to listen to...I have headphones but no ipod or mp3 or anything........
yes, headphones, and LOUD heavy metal....love it! haha
how about those texters?? i love seeing a person on a treadmill trip because they're texting during the workout...haha off subject, but hilarious.
And, it is annoying to hear sob stories about those kinds of things. Simple is great, and simple seems to be where most happy are.
^^ like others have stated...headphones
I really wish I could use headphones, would make it much less annoying for me....maybe someday I will get an mp3 player or something.
They have cheapo ones at walmart.I think mine is 5 years old and I paid 35 bucks.
yea, just right now that is way outta reach....if I have 35 bucks I will buy food...so I have to suffer through the crap at the gym for a while...I may take earplugs...those I have LOL
and the bigger the headphones the better...if you wear the earbuds people may try to talk to you...wear the big DJ ones and no one talks to you because
a) you're jammin too loud
b) you're obvlously crazy listening to that 80s crap
....and it really helps drown out the Abecrombie bullshit around me..
lol KF.I have huge headphones(look at the avatar lol) i get shit for them but I cant hear anyone else so I am happy.
When I clicked on this I assumed it was gonna be about the women who go to the gym and do a couple sets of curls with 2.5lb pink dumbbells and then hit all the machines for a couple reps with no weight on em "cause they don't wanna get all bulky."
You have more to be proud of Shan... They can come and go as they please and have all the resources in the world to make their gains in the gym. Even if your physiques or abilities were exactly the same, it took more focus and drive for you to get there... I'd compare it to 2 people running a 200 meter race. They finish at the exact same time, only one of the runners has one leg. Which is more impressive?
Do not ask to ahve your life's load lightened,
But for a courage to endure.
Do not ask for fulfillment in all your life,
But for patience to accept frustration.
Do not ask for perfection in all you do,
But for the wisdom not to repeat mistakes.
And finally, do not ask for more,
Before saying ''Thank You''
for what you have already received.
I know the times are tough, but there's always a light at the end of the dark. Hope you pull through this hard times.
