Cancelled My Gym Membership

I cancelled my gym membership today. I had been going to the same Y for 20 years, with a think a 2 year break in there somewhere, but it's just not worth it anymore. The family membership was costing me $95/month and I was the only one going with any regularity. Even just for me was going to be $70/month. When I was going in to the office most days, I would go to the gym on the way home. Now, I work from home 4/5 days a week and it takes me 20 minutes to get there on a good day. The Y had also turned up the SJW posters and propaganda up to 11 over the last couple of years, which was really giving the sads when I thought of my dues being used to help support causes I don't believe in.

So, what is my plan? Well, there's one of those $20/month places right where I drop my son off to catch his bus in mornings. It's less than 5 minutes from my house and they have enough equipment to meet my needs. I'm going to try that out for a month or two and see how it goes.




Wish we could cancel ours. Locked in to a three year plan when we arrived here...didn't anticipate covid would turn everyone stupid and I'd have to make an appointment (not to exceed one hour!) and use a mask. 

Our oldest called from college yesterday and he's really fed up (same policy at the campus). He said he was willing to sacrifice for a few months to save an octogenarian, but the no end in sight thing is getting old (though he, quite prophetically, expects a "November miracle"). 

In the souls of the students, the grapes of apathy  are filling and growing heavy for the vintage.
