If you haven’t worked out in years,

or your like me and have lower body restrictions,

or your just a complete beginner,

then this can be a workout to help you get started on your fitness journey.

Over the past few years, I have had to come up with different creative ways to work out that doesn’t trigger my chronic pain in my leg. I haven’t been able to do much for 4 years so I am really weak everywhere and recently I discovered lifting weights while laying down on the sofa.

This is definitely the perfect way at this current time for me to work out with support and not too much stress on other body parts.

I thought I’d just share anyways so those of you out there who feel like they just cant move, (or they been in bed due to health issues for years like me) feel like they can at least try something to keep them muscles alive.

This can also be done sitting up, so if you work at a desk all day long or standing is hard for you – try this out.

Hi Hi Hi everyone!

Today I have for you the long awaited Cake hunt ( sugar free and vegan of course ).

I promised a while back that I would test out and investigate some locations for sugar free cake for you all to go out and try – and here we are! The first part in many to come..

To be honest, I thought we would fall short and not be able to find anywhere to get this elusive Sugar free, vegan cake, but lucky us – there are actually more places than I think any of us ever realised..

All it took was for me to grab a friend, and do a little google search and now here we are 😛

All of the places I visited were refined sugar free, so if you have just cut out refined sugars there is plenty options for you in the London area.

Top tips:

-Take lots of pix

(f or evidence to show unbelieving friends, and convince them to join your sugar free side hehe )

-Check all ingredients properly, and ask the waiters

( don’t get over excited like me and miss some key information )

I really do hope you enjoy the video, me and hayley had an amazing time eating all that cake.

Please do give the video a LIKE if you did, share to your friends and SUBSCRIBE for more content like this in future.

Love and light

Christina Sky
