The stair challenge

So, at work I work on the 7th floor of a building.  Me being all creeped out and scared of elevators has really been testing me these last three months.

Side note, it's been THREE months at my next job.  Time sure flies.  I digress.  

Anyway, 7th floor.  I think my goal for this week is to take the stairs (going up) at least two times this week.  Going down is the easy part and I've been trying to incorporate that into my routine anyway.  Going up is the tough part.  It's 23 stairs a floor... I think.  That's 138 stairs.  It will be a good way to get my heart rate up right before work and it will make sure I'm super awake and ready to start my day.

Also, I have a weird stair counting obsession.  I've done it for as long as I can remember.  Whenever I go up or down stairs, I have to count.  I always lose count at work because there's so many stairs.  For example, there's 12 stairs in my parents house.  There's 5 stairs in the first section (from the top) and 7 on the next section.  There's 16 stairs going from the parking lot to my apartment.  There was 48 stairs going up to my 4th floor dorm room my junior year of college.

I know, it's a weird obsession and habit.  I can't stop it.

I'll update you on my little challenge at the end of the week.

P.S. Whoa!  I posted.  Hot damn.
