TGIF! Has this been a rough week for anyone else? Lets just say I am ready for 5 o’clock to come. I had a great post of Friday Favorites planned for today but this morning was pretty hectic and I was not able to add everything I wanted to so I decided to keep it for next week and give you a very long overdue Friday Favorites post. This is how I felt this morning…



…but it is Friday and there is only 3 and a half hours left in the workday till the weekend. Which I am very excited about! This will be my first weekend in Chicago in awhile it seems like. I have lots of fun things planned and have special visitors coming on Sunday :)

I know recently I have been a little sporadic with my posts – I hope to get back on track next week – but to show you I have been working on LSR (behind the scenes) check out my new page at the top: “Chicago Studios.” I have also updated the categories at the footer of the site to make the site easier to navigate and find past posts.

Recently I have been trying out a lot of new workouts and studios in the city, so I thought it would be best to have all the information in one spot! I hope it is helpful to my Chicago readers and even non-Chicago readers, I do go to some chain studios that are in a lot of cities across the country. I can’t wait to add to the page, especially next month when I will take advantage of a 1 month Class Pass. Already picking out my must try studios!

Right now my go to workout has been Sproing. I love love love it. And love that I can knock out an intense sweaty workout in 45 minutes first thing in the morning. A lot of people are perplexed when I explain the concept to them so I hope in the next few weeks to do I more detailed most on the Sproing concept and the benefit for runners. Chicago readers I highly suggest you check out their studio in Old Town. Because the concept is so different Sproing offers first time members a free week (unlimited classes) so they can get a feel for the machine. Your second workout will feel way different than your first.

I hope you guys enjoy the page and let me know if you want to see any more specifics on the page that I have not included!

Other exciting news on the blog front – I am now a Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador and today was accepted as a FitFluential Ambassador. Which came at perfect timing because yesterday I posted the FitFluential September Challenge. I am loving this one so far…it doesn’t take up much time at all. Come on everyone can allocate a minute or two of their day to a wall sit.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
