I'm not sure if I consume the calorie, or if it consumes me...

Boredom, you drive me insane.
So I had to leave the gym early tonight because I was bored out of my mind on the stairmaster. I think it's because I've been running outside for the last 3 months or something. It's getting darker earlier now and I usually don't make it outside before the sun is gone so I've been resorting to the gym. When Marty goes it's fine...I'm busy trying to look like I'm working hard and being cool. But he's out of town til Saturday and I had to make the trek alone tonight. I swear, if I'm not bored at the gym, I'm bored in front of the tv and eating. And if I'm not bored in front of the tv, I'm bored at work (and eating). I'm having a real big problem with boredom lately. And when I'm bored, I eat. I'm bored with boys, with my haircut, with my clothes, with my iPod selection. I had a friend once tell me that only boring people get bored. Really? I guess it could be true...I'm not claiming to be the most exciting girl alive. In fact, now that I'm thinking about it, I'm starting to feel like this post is pretty boring as I type it out. UGH! Back to the workouts...I know I should incorporate different things into my workout to keep it "fresh" and "exciting". The thing is, I've done a lot of new things in the past in attempt to keep things fresh. What can I try now? I've trained with a trainer, I've run, I've swam, I've done spinning classes like they're going out of style, I've done (and continue to do) yoga, I've lifted a million weights, I've tried all the different little classes (like hip hop aerobics and kickboxing). What else is there?What is a good workout that works me hard and gives me good results, that i can do in the gym in a decent amount of time?
