In yet another attempt to Get In Shape, I went to see a personal trainer in a fitness studio the next street over. MoBob and I walked past one afternoon and I got a flyer for a free consultation so I went one morning and met with K.

He was very cute and friendly. Sure, I'll pay a young, fit, guy to pay exclusive attention to me for an hour three times a week. I really thought I was going to start from zero, but as he put me through the different moves (testing balance, strength, endurance, etc.) he said I was actually doing well. It's true that he said a couple of times "OK, you can get off the floor now" but otherwise it was fine. Unfortunately I suspect I'm just one of those people who don't get the exercise rush.

It's expensive ($75/one hour session) and he doesn't have an early morning time slot for me so I might have to pass. But when I asked him if he had any celebrity clients he responded, "Just you." *swoon*

Yeah. Been there, done that. It was rather pricey, but I lost twelve pounds in six weeks without (much) dieting. Of course, then I stopped during the math class from hell, but what can you do?

He suggested coming in for half hour sessions but again it was a timing thing - I could probably swing paying for this out of the health savings account. I think it'll be worth it since nothing else has!

I'm sending you good vibes. He may be a great kick start till you get comfortable with a solo gym routine.

Part of the attraction is that the equipment's all there too. And he's such a nice guy! Even M thought he was cute.

I really hope the health savings account can cover this!
