5 Simple Steps to Get Started Running

5 Simple Tips to Get Started Running

Yes, to get started running is challenging (especially if you’re brand new). And even though it’s a fairly simple sport, it can also feel overwhelming since there’s so much information about it β€” from what type of sneakers to get to what types of foods to eat for optimal performance β€” available.

But while you’ll likely face a physical challenge when you get started with running, the actually getting started and figuring out the lay of the land part doesn’t have to be so hard!

April 2017 Goal Call

Running in Brooklyn Bridge Park

Confession: I missed my March goal call, but I have no excuseΒ for skipping it other than the fact that I just did not feel like blogging. And that’s OK, because I needed a break for the month and nothing exploded because I didn’t post any updates here.

Funny how that works, huh?!

Anyway, so now it’s April (that happened fast!) and I totally feel like blogging again (hence this post) and I’m going to jump back in with my April goal call. For those of you who are unfamiliar with my “goal call” posts, it’s simply a way for me to share my monthly goals with y’all and also a simple tool to help hold myself accountable β€” which is something we all need when it comes to setting and achieving goals.

Slow-Cooker Eggplant Chana Masala Recipe

Slow-Cooker Eggpland Chana Masala Recipe

Mark and I finally got a slow-cooker.

As anyone with a slow-cooker knows (or anyone who’s even heard about slow-cookers knows), it’s a game-changer in terms of easily putting together a meal of substantial size. Basically, you just throw your ingredients into this big tub, turn it on and a few hours later your meal is ready.

Honestly, I’m mad this thing wasn’t a part of my life sooner because that’s about as much effort as I’m ever willing to put into preparing a meal. My only beef with it is that it’s not a fast-cooker. If it could all be that easy and you could have your food ready within minutes, well that my friends would be an ultimate dream come true for me.
