I hope you had a great Mardi Gras. I had dinner and drinks with girlfriends and grabbed (more) drinks with Josh. It was fun getting into the spirit of the day.
Maybe I got a little too into the spirit. ;p
Something I can never get too into is running.
Do you want to get silly and dress up in a costume? There’s races for that. (Please notice

Edited to add: I accidentally posted this last Monday, a week ahead of the campaign launch date. If it looks familiar, it’s because you might have read it before I realized and took it down. Whoops! Happy Monday everyone!
This weekend was a wonderful one. For the first time in a long time it felt good to get up and move. I’ve had so much I’ve been wanting to tell you and share with

I know this week has been extra fitness-focused on here, but after not being able to work out for so long, it feels so good to be able to move again!
A little over a month ago I got these super sweet Reebok ZQuicks to test out and review. Seriously, how beautiful are they? I had never run in Reebok sneakers

I have a mantra in life. It’s “work smarter, not harder.” This may sound strange to some, but know it’s not about putting down hard work. It’s about not doing unnecessary hard work when there’s a smarter way to handle the situation. If you’re hitting a brick wall over and over again maybe it’s time to stop throwing yourself at the brick wall

I can’t believe it’s already Friday again! Time is flying. It’s time for another Five Facts Friday!
1. I am itching to get back into a workout routine so badly! The only workout I’ve done in the last few weeks was the 5k last weekend. It was so brutal I ended up taking more time off from exercise than I anticipated. Aside from having the husky voice of a man, dealing with left ear pain,

Hey everyone! It’s been a long time since my last post! Long story short: I’ve been sick. I still haven’t kicked my upper respiratory infection, but I am a million times better than I was last week. I have so much to fill you guys in on: a Justin Timberlake concert, a chocolate tour, and our Valentine’s Day celebrations. But today I want to talk about a race. After two weeks of no real movement

1. This has been a rough week for me. During the day Monday my throat suddenly became very sore. The rest of me felt fine and I worried it was strep, until my head and ears decided to join the pain party. I went to the Doctor after work today and found out that while I don’t have strep, I do have something viral. I alternate between feeling fine and feeling like a

I’ve been wanting to try The Grey Plume restaurant in Midtown Crossing for a while now. Rated one of the greenest restaurants in the world, and one of the best restaurants in Omaha, this place is always packed. When I headed to the gym on Tuesday to find my 5:30pm cycle class full, Josh and I decided to get a quick dinner before the next 6:30pm cycle class.
We sat at the bar which

I did something yesterday I’ve never done before. I was planning to go to my regular 5:30pm cycling class at the gym but was running a little bit later than normal. (True story: I got distracted eating cheese puffs. I wish I was kidding.) I got there just as the class was starting and was bummed to see all the bikes were in use. It was such a packed class that the instructor gave up

I got my workout on:
Barre on Saturday.
and Zumba on Sunday!
I went on a beer tour:
Josh and I got a Living Social deal for a beer tour at Infusion Brewing Company. I’m not a beer fan (unless it’s a cider or a sour), but I still had a lot of fun learning about how craft beer is brewed. Josh had an absolute blast. After we celebrated with a beer
