Working out in a gym is a great way to get focused. Once you walk in the door, there is pretty much nothing else to do but work out. The bouncy music is playing, the voice is calling out relentlessly to "change stations" or "step away from the machines and find your pulse...ready?" And every body in the room is in motion. It's a clear message to my brain to get moving, too. I like it. However, I also like that I have an "inner nagger" that gets me going in the morning regardless of where I am. I just don't feel right until I get my muscles warm and exercised. For me, not exercising is like not brushing my teeth. It doesn't feel good. It bugs me. Who knows how long I will go to the gym. I don't really care. It's a fun thing for now, and I intend to give it my best. By the way, I'm really sore! I'm using new muscles with these machines, and I won't be surprised if I end up with larger calf muscles in a few weeks!
