Appletiser is running a “get your sparkle on” campaign at the moment which is all about empowering women and celebrating the ‘everyday rules’ for the ‘everyday heroine’.

I’ve always loved the refreshing taste of Appletiser so when I was invited to join the campaign and share my rules of life, I didn’t hesitate to take part!

Here it is:

1. Satisfy your cravings immediately because cravings only intensify over time!

From my experience, I seem to eat twice the damage if I deny myself of something the first time. So learn from my mistake!

2. Dream big and live your dream

Without getting too life-coachy, remember that your life is what you make it! Don’t say “I can’t…“, think of “How can I…“.

3. Snack regularly. You get grouchy when you’re hungry.

Grouchy people are unpleasant and you also don’t function at your fullest potential. So keep healthy snacks within an arm’s reach at all times! I’m a big fan of Brookfarm’s range of dried fruits and nuts.

4. Dress to impress! You never know who’s watching.

No matter where you go, people are looking at you. You never know who you will meet and where. Always look presentable but be true to yourself.

5. Sweat is just fat crying. Balance out indulgent eating with regular exercise.

I used to be one of those “think about the consequences later” kind of people but since I’ve begun exercising regularly (3 – 4 times / week), I’ve never felt better! Indulging in dessert or the occasional deep-fried foods are guilt-free now!
