Good news: I made it to the gym again, spent an hour and a half working out, and learned that I signed up there exactly two years ago today. So in two years, I have made it to the gym eight times a month just twice–even worse than I thought. On the other hand, I am halfway through the month and have gone four times. Maybe I can reach eight this time.

Am doing longer sessions, because I have added abdominal exercises to my routine. Also added some weight to a few machines today. And a trainer there introduced me to a little device that is two 7-inch diameter wheels, each one-inch wide that are joined together with handles coming out either side that she said is great for abs. It is called a core roller.

I may order my own. I liked it. It felt great. In the power systems catalog, the picture shows and describes one two-inch wide wheel: http://www.power-systems.com/s-18-core-training.aspx

What I can see is that I like some machines and exercises and have no interest in, or satisfaction from, others. So I do the ones I like as long as they will add some bulk to my puny chest and now help build up my abs. Of course my lower body is getting the benefit of hours playing tennis.
