Detroit, MI – As the holiday season approaches, many people will find themselves returning to old habits of overeating and giving in to culinary indulgences. Area woman Lauren Church is no exception.
Church, Detroit’s only registered cake tester, is gearing up to get ready to start to plan on going to the gym once again. Her gym, only a short ten-minute drive from her house, has a variety of equipment and ample room for her to burn off some calories. It surely will be an excellent opportunity for her health as soon as she actually returns.
When asked about her motivations, Church looked at her feet and said she was, “[going] to the new Kroger over there, which is like RIGHT THERE”. The Kroger, a 60,000 square foot superstore, has a robust selection of goods. “They have an island of cheese. An ISLAND. I mean, if I have to head over there anyway… you know…” she added. “They have a snippins'[sic] bucket. Like small little tester pieces. I like the snippins [sic].”
When we reached out to Church’s gym for comment, they simply said, “Who?”
Church is expected back at her gym sometime this fall.
I am a registered food tester at several libraries in the Metro Detroit area and a stranger at my gym. I guess we should both go to our respective places of work out. Unfortunately I have discovered that paying the fee every month does not make you tone up or lose weight. sigh I had so hoped that would work.
