I woke up early this morning to go to the gym. The weather looked sunny and felt warm for morning weather. When I drove up to the ticket disposer area, the machine was malfunctioning or out of tickets. So, I buzzed them, and they just let me through.

I did my usual steam room and sauna meditation, before I started my workout. For some reason, I didn’t feel like walking on the treadmill. This evening, I have a walking meetup to go to, which will be enough walking for the day. I cycled for 10 minutes on the stationary bicycle before going upstairs to do one hour of Silversneakers class. Two old ladies claimed I took the chair of their friend Karen, who wasn’t there and didn’t even show up. Then, the fat one kept saying I was exercising too close to her and getting in her way. I just pretended to be deaf and ignored her. Afterwards, I went down to the second floor and stretched with the huge ball. Today’s workout sucked. I just wasn’t in the mood. At 11:20am, I decided to leave. I buzzed them at the ticket area, telling them that I didn’t have a ticket and they let me through.

The Club Pilates studio is making things complicated to have customers. They don’t take cash or checks, and people have to pay before class, preferably on an APP. I have an iphone6, and the stupid app doesn’t download on my iphone. I don’t even want to pay via app or internet anyway because I prefer to take singular classes around my schedule. They were pushing membership. But I told them my life and schedule is all over the place, and it would be difficult for me to attend regularly, which would make membership a waste of my money. But I can go earlier to pay for the class I want to attend via debit card. This week’s evening classes were already booked, and some people were on a waiting list. I told them that I don’t want to pay earlier, just to be on a waiting list either. I think, on Friday, I will drop by the studio to pay for a class on next week’s schedule, if there is any available space.

I think I just need to make a change in my workout. I am getting sick of routine, and I need variety in my workout to keep it interesting. My gym workout has been slacking since Gumby died.
