Healthy Eating Recipe & My C25K Journey

Here's another healthy recipe to try & update on my C25k journey.

Chicken & chorizo with brown rice

Absolutely yummy & does no way resemble diet food.

Chicken breast (3-4 depends on size)
Peppers (I use any colour usually 3 or 4)
Tin of chopped tomatoes
Garlic
75g cubed chorizo (only item need to count on weight watchers filling & healthy - a small amount puts loads of flavour into the dish)

This recipe is for 4 portions.
Cut chicken into chunks & brown.
Remove & then fry chorizo, peppers & garlic.
Add tomatoes & chicken & a little water.
Cook for further 10-15 mins until chicken cooked through.

I love this meal its delicious & doesn't use a huge array of ingredients. I serve with brown rice but you could have pasta, wedges or mash potato.

Now a little update on my C25K attempt.  I never set out to conquer 5K just increase my fitness & aid weight loss.  I've been enjoying it but still find it tough. I'm upto week 6 day 1.  My hardest run so far was week 5 day 3 which was 20 mins non stop! I don't think I've done that since middle school & enforced cross country ha ha! I wanted to stop after 12 minutes but willed myself on & finished but I didn't enjoy it. I've liked the other runs so may stick to 5-8-5 for a while as this pushes me but is manageable.

I think my fitness isn't increasing fast enough as I only do it twice a week instead of 3 times due to work, kids, daylight hours. However I'm still happy as in the beginning I thought 60 seconds was hard!!!

 I'm hoping now the days are getting longer I can go out sometimes in the evening when my partner gets home from work. I've found a nice route which is 2 1/2 miles. I've surprised myself with sticking with it & hope to continue as I do feel really good for getting out in the fresh air & being more active.

Is anyone else attempting the C25k plan?
How are you getting on?
