I went to my new gym for a free trainer session tonight (alas, I only get one). Had my first body-fat analysis, where they pinch your flabby bits in a giant tweezers and write things down on a chart. Both the belly and tricep numbers were a bit grim -- no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to firm up my matronly upper arms or squishy gut (Trainer-man did say, encouragingly, "There's muscle in there, though. I can tell!" He is a professional.)

The thighs were another story entirely. When I flexed, Trainer-man couldn't even grab 'em in the tweezery-thing. It just slid right off. These thighs may be big, but they're rock-hard! Woo-hoo!

Also, I'm very flexible.

Tomorrow night, I'm going to be like all the big Hollywood stars and take a Pilates class. (Pilates, as you all know by now, is the core-strengthening exercise regimen developed in a POW camp during World War I by Rob Pilatus of Milli Vanilli.)

let me know how your pilates goes, amy. thanks to that class, the 50-something kim cattrall looks like a 20-something when she's naked. a good 20-something. with rock-hard abs.

I prefer the Fab Morvan exercise regimen, wherein you don't kill yourself.

I fully expect to have rock-hard abs by morning.

but for your cardiovascular workout, perhaps you'd like to try a set or two with this woman..

Oh, that's lovely.

Good luck with the Pilates. Tell me how it went.
