    beiing not used or being used to

    "Being not used to hard labor, they were getting along slowly with the digging."

    OR

    "Not being used to hard labor,............................................ .........."

    Would "being not..." be grammatically correct if someone was used to something different than hard labor?

    "Being unused to..." or "Not being used to...".
