Why hello there, my lovely friends! So, as you may know, I’m living in the city now and have been testing the waters of Chicago’s food industry– and I have to say that Chicago has some bomb food spots sprinkled throughout. And, since I’m in the spirit of giving, I decided to share my current guide to Chicago. I have included a few different spots (seven of them to be exact) that have made me want to spend all of my money at all of these places.
For this guide, I did a mix of healthy and “treat yo self” spots because I can’t resist an Ann Sather cinnamon roll (literally the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had). But, I will come out with another guide with all healthy spots that I love, so stay on the look out for that!
So, without further ado, let’s get into my favorite spots in Chicago:

Fun fact: I’m a broke college student. I don’t have all the money in the world to just go to Lululemon on the regular and pick up a brand new pair of $98 leggings (but I do desperately wish I could tbh). I am currently trying to save my money so that I can do one workout class a month and eat at some healthy restaurants.
So, being a broke college student AND a workout clothes enthusiast isn’t necessarily the best combo for me. (It’s actually a really dangerous combo that I don’t recommend any college student fall into because you have to eat too, my friends. Nourish yourselves!)
While my desire for new workout clothes seems to increase when I take a walk through the city and see all of the athlesiure, I went on a hunt for 15 affordable workout clothes (plus a bonus water bottle because this water bottle is so stinking cute that I just couldn’t resist) that were under inexpensive and actually cute (and functional, of course) because I needed to find a way to find cute activewear that isn’t making my bank account cry. This desire lead me to the Magnificent Mile (and to a Ghirardelli because who can’t resist the peppermint bark chocolate squares?) to check out some stores that I thought would have some affordable workout clothes.

For the longest time, I was scared of HIIT workouts. I can’t remember exactly what made me scared of them, but (for some very obscure reason) I was terrified of HIIT workouts. Whenever I was doing a workout calendar, I would skip over the HIIT workouts because I was scared.
I think I compared HIIT to Crossfit (which still scares me, but I’m looking into trying Crossfit some time in the near future). I think I thought HIIT was hard and scary and required a lot of strength (all of my strength is found in my right calf) that I didn’t necessarily have.
I just had a really irrational fear of HIIT.
