Well, Wah

You may recall that I entered a diet contest with Dear Friend awhile ago.  Part of that contest was to write up a 100-word reason why we should get a free session with a personal trainer.

Found out today that I didn’t win the personal trainer…but Dear Friend did*!  ‘Yay’ for her, ‘Boo’ for me**.

Now, against all the advice you, my thoughtful readers, gave me, I did go with the generic and G-rated write up (“…I need to lose weight because I’m stuck at this weight blah-blah-blah…”).  Looks as if I should have gone with the R-rated version (“…I need to lose weight to score some chicks, man!…”).

So, consider this a personal apology to all of you for not taking your advice.  And next time I ask for advice, I’ll do whatever you say…

…why do I hear ominous music playing?…


*by the by, Dear Friend is going to help pay for a trainer for me…seems she to think she had “the fix” in and didn’t win fair and square.  She works with one of the judge’s sons and thinks he whispered her name to make sure she won.  Me?  I think she won fair and square…but to get at a personal trainer to get me losing weight?  I’m all for it.

**oh, but on the good side – – after 7 weeks, to include cookies and treats galore staring me in the face, I’m at the same weight I weighed in at at the start of this contest…there’s hope!

    hiring a personal trainer for you? a euphemism for something twisted, perhaps? kinky….

    no pun intended!

    Way to go with maintaining! Super hard this time of year.
    The maintaining.
    Get your mind out of the gutter.

    The best thing about the holidays passing will be the general lack of “goodies” to snack on!

    Happy Christmas to you from a fellow Ohioan!

    Not just a work out buddy but dual personal trainers is pretty cool.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from a fellow snowy Ohioan!!

    Hit the ground and give me ten! That’s the way. I can feel my inner boxing coach leaping about with a whistle. A brisk walk around the neighbourhood should offset the latest baked goods influx nicely. Go team!

    daisyfae – maybe a euphemism. maybe i just want a hot trainer manipulating me.

    stephanie – if my mind was out of the gutter, the rest of me would be lonely and brainless…oh, wait…

    s. le – excellent…didn’t know you were Ohioan… and i’m looking forward to an evening of nothing but snacks, cookies, and perhaps a dram or seven of alcohol

    hisqueen – my workout buddy can get my heart rate going as is, but the trainer will help with the whole conditioning thing

    mitzi – just did 10, just for you. and you chasing me about with a whistle? ooo…happy thoughts.

    So, did the holiday season give you a net gain?

    Sorry you didn’t win the contest. I’ve spent lotto money before I won it (and then didn’t win). Probably not the same thing, though.
