almost like an anxiety so what motivates me to work out and like Iwould say a lot of the time I'm not ready to like go do heavy liftingbecause after a long day of work sometimes I haven't been sleeping enoughand it does not seem like the most fun thing a lot of times it does seem likethe most fun things but those days where it's like oh how am I gonna do this it'sI go because of a sense that if I don't I will feel bad like it gives me anxietyit almost like hurts because of like I'm not doing what I know I have to do toreach the goals that I want more than anything so I want that to achieve thatgoal in my mind more than I want to like take a day off when I feel like I Ican't do it and the thing is as soon as I get into the gym as soon as like I hitmy first warm-up set I'm like it all just goes back into the zone it's likeeven if I don't feel like it all the way up to I'm like doing I'm stretching I'mwarming up like no no I can't do it there's no way but as soon as I hit
