Next Wednesday will mark 7 months for me. I've been VERY faithful logging over 100 workouts so far (I think I'm in the 120's but who's counting???)

I don't go with a friend specifically, but I've made friends that tend to be there at the same time as me, so I use that as motivation, when I don't have it on my own. The results I've seen are motivation enough for me most days. And on the days when I don't feel like going, I still go because I know it's helping me and will make me feel better AND it's only 30 minutes....so why go straight home when I can spend an extra 30 minutes making my life better.

I do drop my boyfriend off at his gym on my way to workout and then pick him up afterwards so that is motivation as well. I don't LET myself say "oh, lets just go straight home today" so that's a big obstacle gone :)

As for getting sick of the workout...at least with my club, because it was brand new when I joined (I signed up the first day and had my first workout the second day they were open), it's not been boring because a) we are still getting new machines, there are tons of new members all the time to get to know and the "normal" things that other clubs do are being intigrated slowly and spice things up a bit...so no, I haven't gotten bored yet....and it helps that they swtich the order of the machines every 2 weeks and every week we switch directions so you only do the exact same workout for one week....and the order the machines does seem to make a difference with me. there are some that I can work harder on after other machines and strings of machines that I get WAY too high in the heart beat area....LOL

It's all good tho :)

Go in and check it out and see for yourself!
