That's terrific!!! Its nice to have a workout buddy but if they aren't as determined as you, its hard. Going to the gym alone gives not only a good workout but also increases your confidence!!! Good for you!!!

you have the spirit. things will work for you if you just keep it up. actually i have started enjoying going by myself now as i can go at my pace and not have to leave because someone else is tired or has another appt. also they want to eat after and that defeats my whole purpose. super for you
You go girl. I just ran with my dog we did 4 miles not too bad.

You'll actually feel so much better if you DO go on your own. When everyone else didn't make it and YOU persevered ... what a sense of accomplishment you'll feel! I prefer going to the gym on my own because if I want to stay for 2 hrs then I don't feel pressured to leave when my pal backs out after 45 mins!

I am going to make myself proud! I am going to the rec center for two hours today whether or not I find someone to come with me. If no one wants to join me, then my iPod will just have to keep me company. I WILL DO IT!
