I started this blog to post yummy vegetarian recipes and also to keep online recipe book. However, if you look at the title, you’ll notice the word fueled. Earlier this year, I made a resolution to be healthier. This meant:
- No soda
- Cook more at home to be healthier
- Start an exercise routine
The first two goals were a breeze to put in place. As for lucky number three? Well, that took almost 5 months to put in place.
As some of you may know, I recently started the Couch Potato-to-5k Running Plan in hopes to participate in the 2012 Empower One Breast Cancer Race. A few women in my family have faced breast cancer and kicked its ass… hard. I figured that if my mom and grandma can go through intense treatment and come out strong then the least that I can do for them is kick this race’s ass and help fundraise for future research.
Currently, I’m on the third week and I’ve been feeling stronger each and every day. Have any of you tired a 5k challenge? If so, which ones and where are you at today with your running?
