My New Obsession

Last weekend I headed to Pennsylvania to meet up with my mom and little brother at my aunt's house.  It was a free guest pass day at my uncle's gym so he invited my brother and me to join him and my cousin at their morning spin class.  If you remember, going to a spin class was one of my 2012 resolutions that went unfulfilled, so I was more than excited to go!

I had an absolute blast!  The instructor was energetic (she actually got a bloody nose halfway through and we had to switch, but they were both great) and I loved the loud, fun music that they incorporated into the class.  My brother and I were both new to spin and I couldn't help but laugh as we exchanged looks of horror as the instructor yelled to crank the resistance higher.  Even though my quads were screaming and I literally had sweat dripping into my eyes, I loved every minute of it.  I'm currently looking into gyms that offer class passes so that I can go on a regular basis.

After the class we headed over to a conservatory and wandered around looking at all the beautiful flowers and enjoying hanging out with each other.

It was a wonderful weekend and I wish my family all lived a little closer so that we could get together more often!  I might have to head up north soon to crash more of my uncle's classes!  He's created a monster!


  1. So glad that you had so much fun at spin class. I remember being scared just listening to spin class through the door while we did the nautilus machines at the Y, so I know I'm not brave enough to give it a whirl! I wish I could have seen Ben try it, though!

    1. Aw I miss the Y! And both of us were probably hilarious to watch. Perhaps one day we shall get better.
