I need music to exercise, it really is the only way I will do it. The very odd occasion I've gone to the gym without my ipod I've ended up either slacking off and going home early or just really not putting in enough effort.
I always keep a spare pair of earphones in my gym back so that if the worst happens I can always plug into the cardio equipment - it's not the same but better that the sound of blokes gossiping in the weights area.

I treated myself to an ipod nano because I hate sweating on my ipod touch - the nano has only gym playlists on it and nothing else and my touch has everything else so that I have no choice but to keep the two ipods separate...and that way I can justify the expense!
I got the free engraving and I was thinking of some inspirational quote since I was using it for exercise, but after some thought I decided I'm really not a motivational saying sort of girl, so I plagiarised a t-shirt and had it engraved with this
