This time I stopped and wrote down the telephone number.
My impending 40th birthday had everything to do with it.
The ever-welcoming Janice called me back and I laced up my runners and went.
I had never found any gym or class or regime I liked enough or found effective enough to keep wanting to go back.
And here I am 5 years later. 3 sizes smaller, much fitter and still loving the workouts.
I have watched many people come and start and then leave.
I have "suffered" behind many a new comer going in wrong directions.
I have made many friends.
Been inspired by some remarkable women.
It's so easy to let my personal fitness slide when life gets jam packed with other things but I am over beating myself up when I miss a class.... I just get back as soon as I can... And carry on.
I feel lucky to have found a thing I love to do that helps me stay in shape.... It's a lovely gift in my life.
So I am toasting me, my jazzer instructor friend Janice and all the lovely ladies who work it out on the dance floor day after day.
