A Few of My Favorite Things: February 2019

(Photo by Paul Bellinger) Happy Monday! Does February feel like it’s flying for anyone else? I can’t believe it’s already February 18. Spring football begins in exactly two weeks for Nebraska and I’m already excited for the work to be done with Hail Varsity with that. In the meantime, I realized it’s been about a …

Get Moving

(Ah, Monday. Time to get moving. (Or so I tell myself.) One of my goals for 2019 was to get more active. And I’ll tell ya, so far so good. Let’s review: Sign up for the Lincoln Half-Marathon in May. Check. Yes. I signed up. Official training starts in February. Get to the gym at …

Finding motivation

I’m going to be honest with y’all: I have very little motivation lately when it comes to working out and eating healthy. It’s bad. And I mean really bad. It’s been especially difficult because I’m a pretty active person overall (or so I tell myself). I’ve run multiple half-marathons and other races. I like how …
