Resources for Working Out during COVID19

Hi All!

So by now, the entire United States is finding itself in the midst dealing with Coronavirus or COVID19. Those of us that have the ability to work from home, have been told to. We are all being encouraged to engage in social distancing. All of the precautionary measures are ultimately for the better good.

I live in Chicago and as of this afternoon, our governor announced the closure of restaurants and bars for dine in til March 30th. This news was a bit shocking but I soon realized that its for the best of society.

As of right now, workout studios and gyms remain open, functioning at 70%-50% capacity, but with how quickly everything is changing I figured it would be helpful to compile a list of resources for working out without going to the gym or studio. So please see below and I will be updating the list as I learn of more deals.

Hi my name is Gabby, 26 and I work full-time as an accountant and I am in graduate school for my MBA part time. I have always been one busy bee, even before graduate school. Post-undergrad, I worked at a public accounting firm AND was studying for my CPA. My first year post grad, working crazy hours and trying to pass a beast of exam, took a toll on my body, my mental capacity and brain power. I started the Whole30 journey in January 2016 and fell in love with how I felt. But let me tell you it took some adjustments like setting aside time to meal prep and realizing I may not be able to a make a certain recipe because I just don't have the time due to studying or busy season. A lot has changed since then, I've switched jobs and passed my exam, but one thing stays consistent...I stilllove to cook efficiently. I've yearned all my life to have that "I am sexy" confidence and with healthy eating and exercise, I'm getting there. I started this blog to help others who are in a similar position as me, who want to become the best version of themselves but with realistic expectations. For the busy moms, for the students, and for overworked accountant, these are my stories and recipes on how to live a simple easy whole life.
