Blogging 12 days Xmas – Day 7

So I’m continuing my annual #12daysxmas blogging challenge this year, and my theme for 2017 is ‘gratitude’. Each day for 12 days, I’m explaining one thing that occurred in each month, that I’m grateful for. Today’s month? July 🙂

Thinking about July makes me smile.

You see, I have a friend who I’ve known since January 2002, when I first started working at my current place of employment. She and I started as colleagues, but over the course of time became friends. And she has always been a large girl. But in July this year, I finally worked up the courage to invite her to join my gym.

Once she recovered from the shock, she accepted.

So over the July school holidays,she commenced a five day trial. We tried a number of classes together. It was the first time I had attempted Pilates; the first time she had tried BootyBarre. Some classes were good, others not so much, but that was to be expected.

However, at the end of the five days, she bit the bullet and joined the gym with me!

Now that was fantastic, but the best bit is? That six months later, she is still coming to the gym with me!

So she is my reason for being grateful in July. Was there someone who made your July special this year, I wonder?

And have a great day, dear Reader!
