About the gym

So, as y'all know by now, I've been doing a job at a gym to meet other people interested in fitness as well as for the benefit of a membership and a little (I stress little here, heh) extra cash. It's a fun and easy job and is close to the farm so it's been working out fairly well. I can take a break from the farm and go there to work out if I want and have the time. You get an hour with a personal trainer when you get a new membership there in order to help you have a workout focus and know how to use some of the cardio equipment and the Cybex weight machines. I finally arranged one for myself, which is good 'cause I had forgotten how to use the Cybex machines from when I was a member years ago and I didn't know how to use the treadmills ever. I've never used a treadmill actually. Since I work there I felt a little strange about trying to figure out how to use stuff when going there to work out, so I've been sticking to the free weights and the rowing …

farmer's market yesterday & farm stuff...

She said she had just been on this website the night before and had thought to herself that I looked familiar. She had large sunglasses on and I was wondering if I knew her, didn't recognize her and trying to place the rest of her face. If you're reading this, sorry if I seemed strange. I was a bit puzzled. I didn't know if I've known you for a while and just didn't recognize you with the glasses and you found my website the night before discovering my Jungle Janie nickname; or if you knew me from markets and saw & recognized me online the night before; or if you knew me from online the night before and recognized me at market. That combined with the multitasking at market left me a bit speechless. Doi. LOL. You seemed to be in a hurry too, so I guess it was no biggie. I'd be happy to talk with you next time if yo…

Update Monday 6/9/08

I've been really busy with the farm, my job at the gym and all recently. I have some technical difficulties with posting lately too. I was using my phone as a modem for my computer to post things while at the farm 'cause I'm not home most of the time these days, but the connection just isn't working anymore. I need to get the phone replaced, but haven't had a chance yet. I had also been using a free wi-fi connection at the mall as a backup, but that has become too unreliable to use now too. I keep getting cut off every minute or two and have to go through a clicking maze in order to get back online, very frustrating when you're working with limited time.

So my new plan is to update y'all as I can with general goings on rather than specifics by day until I get my Internet access more stable.

The vog has not been around for a while now, so that's been really nice. They finally finished painting at the gym too. Yay! I'd started to settle into a routine o…
