Those tempting smells and sights we all face when eating healthy

Getting food is no longer a problem for the general population, especially if you are able to push aside healthy eating. When going on the road, a quick and cheap option is usually the one people go with to keep them moving. Last week I rode on the bus with our men’s and women’s basketball […]

Heading across the prairie and eating healthy on a 16-hour day trip

Just like anywhere else in America, the long roads that span the central prairies of America are filled with numerous places to pull off and eat. There’s plenty of fast food, gas station goodies and local favorites in the towns and truck stops between Topeka and the 14 other cities that make up the conference […]

A new weight class!

It’s given my wife and I the chance to take full advantage of Washburn University’s 12-day holiday break. Along with that I’m also abstaining from blogging since my blog is related to my work.

Hold the chicken sandwiches

Yesterday I texted my wife and asked her to bring me a banana and an apple to work so I could make it through a pair of basketball games. Later that night I realized how amazing it was that fruit was the only thing I thought of asking for to supplement my lunch. My eating […]

Giving thanks for a day off

I could have gone three hours north or three hours south today to spend Thanksgiving with my extended family, but with a full day of work yesterday and hosting a basketball classic tomorrow and Saturday, my wife and I decided to stay in Topeka for the second straight year and have dinner together. This year, […]
