Size twenty thighs squeezed into size 14 leggings, check. Trendy trainers, check. Loose fitting, very long top, check. Yoga mat, check. Courage firmly in my two hands, check. I'm ready for my first ever Pilates class and am hoping that as it's an over 50s class at 11:30 on a Monday morning, all the bright young things with their supple backs and slender hips that twist behind their shoulders with ease, will be out there making the world a better place and not in a Pilates class making all the rest of us feel useless and inferior. As usual with anything new, I'm really not up for it and am having to beat myself up to go; but let's be positive shall we, it's the start of a brand new me...yay!!
