FITNESS FRIDAY #1 {Workouts, Routine, Healthy Drink and more}

Here we are, It's friday and it's time to start working out for a "better body". Whether you need to lose (or gain) some weight or, like me, you just want to work out a little more and be a tad healthier then this is the place for you if you just need a little inspiration. 



The Routine 

This week it's been a crazy ride. As some of you may know from last week's post, I started the Blogilates calendar. I did stick to it quite well and I did manage to catch up on workouts I may have skipped because of laziness. (oops) Unfortunately I am an "inelastic" girl and many exercises were difficult for me. Literally the easiest stuff I couldn't do because I am super rigid. Then my back started to hurt for the past couple of days and I decided it's not really for me. I believe every person has types of workouts that really go down well and other that just don't work well enough. For example, my mum CAN'T do things from the Jillian Michaels dvds but I can - and vice versa for other things. Evidently my posture and body couldn't really do anything on the floor that required me to be on my back all the time. I decided to stop and maybe do more stretching for now. I'll try again in a few months and see if I can give pilates another go. I did however purchase a small dvd collection from Jillian Michaels and I can't wait for it to arrive. She's still my favourite. 

Workout Video Of The Week

If you wanna work on your abs, this is one of my favourite videos! 

Healthy Drink Of The Week 




This is for any of you that are currently busy and can't really spend time mixing fruit in the kitchen to make your own juice. It contains pressed red and green grapes, 2 smashes bananas, lemon juice, orange, crushed blueberries, acai berries and 1 pressed pomegranate. It tastes so good and it fills you up when you're tempted to snack on something evil like french fries. 

Healthy Snack Of The Week 


I had one of these in my bag all this week and have been loving them especially when I'm reading magazines and chilling in the park. They're the perfect snack in between meals!



Feel free to share your healthy drink & snack of the week and tweet me @KrisEvilCupcake !
I hope you enjoy this new series I started :)

    1. Glad you like it :) Aw I bought a fruit blender thing and I'm gonna start making my own shakes soon :)
      Not juicing as such since I think it's a little too much for me but once every day it's a healthy substitute to snacking :)

  7. awww that healthy acai drink has the cutest packaging! I'd buy it just because of that lol!!!! I cut out diet coke a couple months ago. It wasn't easy but I feel so much better just from doing that. No more headaches... best of luck on your health journey! ^_^

  10. oh too bad to hear you can't do pilates! it is one of my favorite workouts to do on day I don't run or do aerobics. I find it super relaxing and it tones all the muscles effectively! I actually wish I did it more!
    the smoothie sounds heavenly! I wish I could find them here in the netherlands!!!
    nice post!
