• Just Call Me Rocky

    June 3, 2010

    Ok, so I lied. I ran up the stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and acted just like Rocky. I couldn’t help myself! 😉


    This photo was actually taken next to the “Rocky Steps,” but I’m sure you can imagine my excitement! 😉





    Jenna and I participated in Sabrina’s bootcamp class this evening. It was an awesome full body workout! And we got to run up and down the stairs a bunch of times, so I was a happy (and sweaty) camper!



    Before bootcamp, I ate a slice of pizza and drank half of an iced coffee at the airport. Let’s just say it wasn’t the best choice before a workout.


    Shower then dinner out on the town! :mrgreen:

    Fun! We went to Philly on a class trip and everyone ran up. Parts of the city are really nice. Have a good night!


    Nicole @ Making Good Choices June 3, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    I love running up (or walking too) those steps! My husband used to live there so we would do it when I would go down there. Have fun I love Philly!

    you’re so bad ass! :)


    Stacy (StacyGrowsHealthy) June 3, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    That looks like a lot of fun running up the stairs. I love working out in groups and bringing it outside must have been fun!


    Courtney June 3, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    I did the same thing while we were in Philly for the marathon–totally not ashamed!


    Estela @ Weekly Bite June 3, 2010 at 8:36 pm

    I’ve always wanted to run up those stairs :)

    Have a great dinner!


    Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter June 3, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    I love how you workout on the same day you travel, I could never do that.


    Maria @ ahealthierMaria June 3, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    Is it bad that I’ve never seen Rocky?! Regardless, looks like you had a heap of fun :) Hope the rest of the trip is as yummy and laughter-filled!


    Whitney @ Whitinspired June 3, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    Lindsay @ Summit Sandwiches June 3, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    I think everyone who visits Philly has to do the Rocky pose on the steps. It’s almost a requirement if you go there!


    Kati June 3, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    So fun! Stairs are a great way to switch things up!


    Ellie June 3, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    How fun! Did you jump around when you got to the top. I feel like my friends and I always run up buildings with lots of steps and jump around just for the fun of it


    Lauren @ eater not a runner June 3, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Tina! I’m a loyal follower (of all your blogs!), and I’m trying to find your 3-minute oatmeal cookie recipe, but I cant seem to!
    Would you mind re-posting the link on honor of Cookie Friday? or maybe you could just email me the link to your recipe? (fraisesdubois@gmail.com)

    Happy upcoming weekend!



    Kim June 3, 2010 at 11:40 pm

    Hi Tina!
    I have recently lost 70lbs, and for to long I lived in fear of gaining even one lbs of that weight back. You have inspired me, daily, to eat a healthy balanced diet, and to HAVE FUN! You are an amazing romodel and woman and I love your blog. Thank you for your daily dedication!


    Jackie (Peaces of Earth) June 4, 2010 at 12:16 am

    So awesome!!! I was born and raise on the East coast, living in NY and Boston and have NEVER been to Philly! Well, technically I have but it doesn’t count. :) I want to run up those stairs!


    Heather Rose June 4, 2010 at 2:58 am

    That pistachio pizza looks amazing! I need to find something like that in my neck of the woods. I’ve always wanted to check out Philly, looks like a great trip so far!


    Kelly @ Healthy Living With Kelly June 4, 2010 at 9:41 am

    Haha…I TOTALLY would have done that too!!! No worries!


    Kelly June 4, 2010 at 10:54 am

    Welcomeee! We used to have to run those in high school for track and xc practice. Brutalll!


    Erin W. June 4, 2010 at 11:19 am

    I ran those steps when I visited Philly too. And then I went and stuffed my face with cheese steaks. :)
