My new(ish) love is called exercise. Its mental, I know, if you knew me you wouldn't believe it but something had to give and despite not yet reaching waif like proportions I am heading in the right direction. My particular passion is a class called Clubbercise. Think aerobics, in the dark, with glow sticks to dance music. It really is as epic as it sounds. So Wednesday nights & some Thursdays I dance like nobody is watching and they really aren't because we're in the dark, with glow sticks!
My favourite tracks are the 80s/90s ones as they take me back. I particularly love love Born Slippy by Underworld. This takes me back to 1996. My final year at uni, Trainspotting, a mad night of comedy, preview tickets for a midnight showing and piling round to someone's house drinking & playing the rizla game (without rizlas). This song lets me turn my brain off and go for it. I have laughed so many times that if my 20 something self could see 40 something me doing jumping jacks to lager, lager, lager instead of drinking lager, lager, lager she would be in hysterics. And you know she'd be right. It is funny and fun. I still like the odd pint of lager lager lager but I wouldn't trade the jumping jacks ever.
