How was everyones weekend?!

Lake Shore Path Chicago


I was able to get another short but sweet run in this weekend! I actually felt pretty good for the entire 3 miles. But boy was I tight after. Yoga was a struggle. This morning I am going to my first dry needling appointment. I am really excited/anxious to see how it goes. I will have a recap for you guys tomorrow!

My weekend didn’t really have any rhyme or reason so instead of going through each day I thought I would just pick out my favorites from the weekend!

Favorite Eat?

Zuchinni Lasanga


Friday night I made a makeshift Zucchini lasagna. I needed to use up more pasta sauce! I got the idea when I made the Italian Zucchini Boats, but this recipe incorporated a lot more cheese :)

The end result wasn’t quite lasagna but it was still delicious! I will have a full recipe for you soon.

Favorite Workout? 



Saturday morning I woke up wanting to do something different than my normal Saturday gym routine. Last week aSweatLife posted  all the gyms that offer free workout classes. Chicago friends it is a must read! I have always been curious about Sproing Sport because I pass it everyday on the way home from my gym. The apparatus intrigued me…


I attended the SporingHIIT class which incorporated cardio, squats, rows, pushups, lunges, and curls all while being strapped into this machine. The part that enticed me most was being able to run and workout on a low impact surface. Gotta help the joints! When I signed up I got the entire week free so I am going back this morning! I will provide a full recap once I do more than one class.

Favorite Drink? 

Small Town Root Beer Beer


Small Town Root Beer Beer – mind blown. It taste just like A&W Root Beer. Add some vanilla ice cream and you have yourself a delicious ice cream float. Best part about it – it doesn’t taste like beer at all. Which was shocking because it is 10% alcohol. I can’t wait to buy this for my apartment.

Favorite Moment?

Rory McIlroy

Sunday afternoon after spending by day at Starbucks I came home and started packing up my apartment. While packing I watched Rory McIlroy win the PGA Championship. Back to back wins and his second major this season. Anyone who has been reading LSR for a little knows my love for golf and for Rory. Diminishing daylight played a role at the end of the tournament and it was great to see the sportsmanship of Michelson and Fowler allowing for Rory to tee off on the 18th in order to get his round in. Ok enoughs enough, I’m done. One more thing – my cable package at my new apartment does not have The Golf Channel. Do I pay $20 more a month to get it? #OldLadyStatus #SaraDilemma

And let me just leave you with some Oprah insight…


You are here not to shrink down to less, but to blossom into more of who you really are.” – Oprah

Have a great Monday!
