Commit to be Fit Friday!

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away!"

Via Google

Hey ladies! I'm sure many of us have heard this saying before but how true is it? While exercising daily or weekly will improve our health and bodies. Going the extra mile and substituting our usual choice of eating junk food or fast food with healthy snacks will really make a HUGE difference in our performance at the gym, outdoor activities or just our everyday life. We feel better when eating an apple instead of something really sweet like a donut or candy.

I know we all have those sweet streaks, where we just feel like we NEED us some sugar! But, knowing how much better we'll feel after eating an apple instead of something "unhealthy" is so much more better than feeling guilty! I'm not saying to torture yourself and NEVER eat any of these things! Just know that you have a choice & when you choose to say yes to candy or sweets, eat it in moderation. Too much of it will make you feel sluggish or tired after the sugar rush is over.

Personally, I like apples! I think that you can also have this as a quick breakfast. I know some people eat it with peanut butter, but I think it is perfect the way it is!

10 Health Benefits of Apples (click here to check out the article):
1. Bone Protection
2. Asthma Help
3. Alzheimer's Prevention
4. Lower Cholesterol
5. Lung Cancer Prevention
6. Breast Cancer Prevention
7. Colon Cancer Prevention
8. Liver Cancer Prevention
9. Diabetes Management
10. Weight Loss  (A Brazilian study found that women who ate three apples or pears per day lost more weight while dieting than women who did not eat fruit while dieting!)

Happy Friday Everyone (or Thursdays depending where you are)!!  :)

  2. I love this post. I have a similar theme on Fridays on my blog- Fitness Fridays :D

    I like apples, and always say to myself if I am not hungry enough to eat an apple then I am not hungry and am only craving something. So I tend to eat apples once a day lol

  5. I'm currently dieting and commence week 4 tomorrow. I feel like i'm doing well and haven't caved into sugar which is a massive thing for me as I have such a sweet tooth. Sometimes it's nice to find motivation and support elsewhere. Can I just say these sentences in your post really helped me'I know we all have those sweet streaks, where we just feel like we NEED us some sugar! But, knowing how much better we'll feel after eating an apple instead of something "unhealthy" is so much more better than feeling guilty!' Thanks!xx
