Stairway to Heh-vuhn
Isn’t that the way the song goes? In an ongoing effort, er, in a renewed effort to be eat healthy, I’ve posted a recipe for the most phenomenal chocolate chip cookies ever on my Fierce and Nerdy Blog (possibly even better than the apology cookies.) I’m almost hesitant to tell you they are not only Gluten Free, but vegan.
AND in the effort to regain being physically fit, I have added some stair climbing to my morning walk. These stairs to be precise:
That’s just 1 of 5 portions. My March stated goal was to go up and down these 5 times at one go. I’ve done 4 times, each of the past 2 days and my calves hurt, but I’m picturing my J-Lo booty getting firm. Could use some new uptempo music to make my time on the stairs a tad easier!
Also, after watching my buddy Rachel run the L.A. Marathon last weekend, Sean and I discussed doing a 10k or a half-marathon. I’m in serious consideration to join the Leukemia and Lymphoma Team in Training for the Disneyland Half Marathon in September. I figure that I already think about Dad a lot while I’m out there walking/climbing/running, I might as well be raising money to defeat the disease that took him from us. The $2,200 fundraising goal is almost as daunting as running 13.1 miles, but I think I’m up for the challenge.
Now I’m off to ice my shin splints. Keep those cards and letters coming!
