So this seal walked into a club...

We went to the gym again and had a pretty intense workout. It was our last meeting with our personal trainer, and at the end of the session we were taken into an office to talk about adding more personal training sessions, which of course isn't included in the original package we signed up for.

We were told that if we wanted to add more sessions, they could give us 24 sessions for $2200 and talked all about the benefits of doing so. When I turned to my hubby and said 'umm that's a little much', they suddenly had this other offer...16 sessions for $1247 provided that one of us was a student. As my hubby is currently doing his MBA, they said we 'qualified'. They also mentioned that if we took part in the personal training, they could GUARANTEE that we'd lose 10 pounds and 1-2 inches off our waist in a month. If we didn't, they'd give us extra training sessions. WOO!

By the way, we are going to decline taking part in the extra training sessions, I don't see much benefit in doing so.

The guy who was talking to us gave me the willies, he was trying to be our best friend. He was saying things such as 'I don't normally do this for our clients, but I can make an exception in your case.' and 'We have to keep this between us' and 'I could get fired if this got out!' Since my hubby does marketing for a living, both of us just sort of looked at each other and smirked. It was such a lousy sales pitch, you could smell it.

*IF* we joined up for the extra 16 sessions, we would have to follow their diet plan, which to me, sounds a little odd. We basically have to eat *A LOT* of protein a day, we were told that we'd have to eat our weight in grams of protein a day. For instance, if you weigh 150 pounds, you have to eat 150 grams of protein every day. To me that sounds a little...high. We were told as an example that an entire can of tuna has 15 grams of do the math to consider eating those 150 grams.

Does this sound wonky to any of you?

Skanky tuna? That sounds fishy...That's a huge amount of protein.
