I think the gym may be one thing too many

One of the points of keeping a daily checklist, a to-do list and a calendar was to track my progress in meeting the various milestones of the month. Most of them I've kept up pretty well with. The one that is failing is "daily exercise". While the weather was nice out, I was happy to be out in it walking: I walked 3.5 hours on Saturday and 2.5 hours on Sunday. However, with the rain setting in for the long haul (looks like through next Monday at least) the obvious place to get exercise is at the gym, which I went to a lot of trouble to sign up for in December. I just can't seem to make myself go.

The problem with the gym is that it is an unfamiliar environment. I'm uncomfortable with the whole ritual of it, and so I'm not eager to get in there and mess with that. I could probably overcome that, but I'm trying to do so many other new things at the same time that I just don't seem to have the energy to deal with it right now.

I'll try to make it work, but I'm wondering when that will be. I have a million excuses, but so far this year I haven't made it into the gym. Fob
