Happy New Year everyone!!!

I rang in the new year in Philly with my Sweetie.  The night was “interesting”. Let’s just say that there is nothing worse then being hungover at your boyfriend’s parents’ home while still trying to maintain a respectable reputation. It was bad.  And I’ll leave it at that.

So this is the time of the year for New Year Resolutions. Mine is to get back in shape. I’ve never really been serious about setting a new year resolution so it will be interesting to see how far I can take it.  I’m gonna refrain from setting lofty goals for now, but I think that it would be ok to consider this my “day 1“.

Day 1:
My coworker and I made it to the gym.  Wow–I was really intimidated when walking into that place!! Some of the women there looked FABULOUS.  And here I was in my dingy, over-sized Race for the Cure tee and  unflattering Gap lycra pants.  After a few minutes, we decided that our best bet was to start with a class. We chose spinning!  We certainly didn’t go into the class expecting it to be a walk in the park. And it wasn’t.  We both made it through the grueling 60 minutes of pyramids, sprints, and whatever -the-heck else the instructor referenced when yelling at us.  We decided that it would be smart for us to not push ourselves any further, so we called it a night after the class ended.   We’ll see how we’re both feeling tomorrow and will choose our next routine accordingly.

Oh yeah:  My boyfriend also took me to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Yay!!  It actually made me realize that my taste in art is pretty boring.   I was actually more interested in the artifacts on display. I’m still working on the whole camera thing but here’s an Iphone pic to share with you:
