Fitness Friday ♥ Trainers, Confessions, and Judge Judy


This Fitness Friday post is going to contain a confession. Not a fitness-related confession exactly, but if you really want one of those Ill include one at the end of this post. 😉

My confession is that I watch Judge Judy and Peoples Court. LOL I dont know if I dont have enough drama in my life or what (thats 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 dont like getting yelled at, thank you very much.

So why am I confessing this? Well, yesterday I watched Peoples 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 didnt want to give a woman her money back anyway, the case isnt 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 wasnt 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 cant remember the exact words, but they were demeaning, definitely not something that would motivate me to get exercising I mean, Im hard on myself already! I dont 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) Im 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.

Nice guy.

(I didnt make this stuff up! Check out the Denver Post if you dare.)

Now the reason Im sharing all this? I have a new appreciation for my personal trainer on the Wii Fit. Dont you? She will NEVER throw cupcakes at you, and although I know sometimes she tells me Youre doing grrreat just to keep me going and not because I really AM doing great, at least shes 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 Ive decided that she needs a new, nicer name. I would like to introduce you to my trainer:

Cupcake!
(KIDDING!)
Okay oh great, what if that name sticks? lol Well it cant, I would be hungry every time I worked out. Bad bad bad.
So Im gonna start calling her Jane because I love Jane Austen. If her name changes again you know itll be because she finally got on my nerves again. 😉 I might have to have someone remind me that I should be happy she doesnt throw cupcakes at me.

Oh, my fitness-related confession!

Okay, okay, I confess I confess

that I dont always let it log my weight if Ive gained. Ohhh, that hurts. Bad, bad, bad me! But I do have good reasoning behind that if its a different time of day it doesnt count, right? Right? Because we fluctuate oh my excuses. 😉
