The New Pink

Star Treatment

So I don't know when it happened, but it appears that having your own personal trainer is the new pink. I can't believe how many people I have talked to have a personal trainer. It has gone viral.

I want to get in shape as much as the next person, but I just don't know how people can afford this. I know I don't have an extra couple hundred dollars laying around. Do I want to have someone solely devoted to kicking my ass off the couch and into the gym - of course! I just have those nasty things like a mortgage and bills to pay for. Seriously, I am struggling to understand how people afford this.

I guess those with a personal trainer would say it is the sort of thing that you simply can't afford NOT to do. That you are worth it and the expense, compared to your health is minimal. I'm not saying I don't believe his, I am with you, it probably is worth every penny. I just don't know if I have that many pennies free for use in this regard.

Yet, I keep thinking maybe I should work with someone. I have seen some impressive results. Maybe just 1 day a week to get myself out of this rut I am in and to help me keep focused. I mean, all my clothes are tight. Mostly, I just hate looking at my double chin in the mirror, and my motivation is less then zero. So maybe investing in a personal trainer would be a good idea. I just don't know if I can afford it, and I think selling Mark on it is going to be even harder then finding the money.
