We have been checking out gyms.  Well, we tried the two closest to us, and settled on 24 hour fitness for two reasons.

1)  There were no men with back muscles so big their arms wouldn’t hang straight,


2) it’s easy to be anonymous.


They had a hip hop class scheduled for earlier tonight and I showed up for it.  It was fast-paced, and whenever I watched myself in the mirror I saw the co-captain of the cheerleading squad.  Wow for me.  As one of the other girls said, I have never felt like such a white girl.
