My confession is that I watch Judge Judy and People’s Court. LOL I don’t know if I don’t have enough drama in my life or what (that’s SO not true), but I really like trying to figure out who is going to win, who is going to mess up their whole case by admitting something stupid, who is going to get yelled at for being an idiot. One thing I know. I would never go on one of those shows. lol I don’t like getting yelled at, thank you very much.
So why am I confessing this? Well, yesterday I watched People’s Court and there was this guy on there, a personal trainer dude who is known for his “brutal” treatment of his trainees. He was arrogant and appeared to have had one too many Starbucks that day (If I remember right, the judge told him to cut down on the caffeine, or something to that effect). He was being sued because he didn’t want to give a woman her money back – anyway, the case isn’t what caught my attention. It was the fact that he has really intense workouts and a “unique” way of inspiring women to lose weight…
First, when this woman that was suing him wasn’t losing weight fast enough (he said she was lying about how many calories she ate or something), he started sending her humiliating emails saying she would look fat and horrible next to her successful husband. I honestly can’t remember the exact words, but they were demeaning, definitely not something that would motivate me to get exercising – I mean, I’m hard on myself already! I don’t need someone telling me something like that. lol
The other thing was that he apparently throws cupcakes at his “females” (his words – the judge cocked an eyebrow at that, haha) – I’m not sure what the reasoning behind that is. I think it would make me hungry, not motivate me to diet.
He lost his case, by the way. And as he left, he said, “It was a female ambush. I said that justice was not blind and I bet the judge was a chubby under those robes.”
(I didn’t make this stuff up! Check out the Denver Post if you dare.)
Now the reason I’m sharing all this? I have a new appreciation for my personal trainer on the Wii Fit. Don’t you? She will NEVER throw cupcakes at you, and although I know sometimes she tells me “You’re doing grrreat” just to keep me going and not because I really AM doing great, at least she’s nice about it.
So at one of the last Wii Mommies twitter parties, I dubbed my trainer “Cruella” (well, she did “yell” at me one time when stepped off the board in the middle of an exercise). But I’ve decided that she needs a new, nicer name. I would like to introduce you to my trainer:
Oh, my fitness-related confession!
Okay, okay, I confess… I confessthat I don’t always let it “log” my weight if I’ve gained. Ohhh, that hurts. Bad, bad, bad me! But I do have good reasoning behind that – if it’s a different time of day it doesn’t count, right? Right? Because we fluctuate… oh my excuses. ;-)
