A delicious way to add an inch or two to your waist!

Today I had my dreaded Pharmacology exam and I'm pretty sure I bombed it. I'm not too worried about it because my professor will let us drop one exam, and judging by the fact that I was clueless for about 90% of the test, I'm predicting this will be the one to drop. There were probably 30 different drugs on this test so I'm going to have to spend ALOT more time studying for this class and filling out drug sheets with all the details on every single medication.

So...sadly, blogger will be getting less of my time these days. I'm sad that I've had to chisel away at my list of blogs I follow and cut it down to the only the ones that I really enjoy reading because I just don't have the time to catch up on all of them everyday.

Okay, I'm one of those people who has a hard time staying committed to a goal. I've decided to get in shape and lose some weight, all the while saying "and I mean it this time", oh about 15 times in the past six months. I've got a Wii Fit sitting in my living room that I haven't been on in 17 days and a Pilates DVD in my room that's only collecting dust. So now, I'm setting a goal to start running. I want to be running several miles, maybe 3 or 4 at least,a day by the end of the summer. I don't really care about losing weight, I just want to be fit and able to walk up the 3 flights of stairs at the college library without getting winded. So, any advice on how to get into a good routine while avoiding injury? I'd love any tips I can get.

Now, after revealing my goals to get in shape, I'm going to share a sinfully caloric,yet equally delicious,recipe for the best brownies ever. I don't remember where I got the recipe, I'm thinking on the Hershey's website. Anyway, a couple of batches of these beauties can definitely do some damage to a girl's waistline, so beware!

I don't have any pics of the one's I've made, but these look equally delicious!

Deep Dish Brownies

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.

2. Combine butter, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Add eggs; beat will with a spoon or a spatula. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in separate bowl; gradually add to egg mixture, beating until well blended. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.

3. Bake 40-45 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars, makes about 16 brownies.
