Happy National Women's Health and Fitness Day!

It's that time of year again! 

The start of fall marks the return of pumpkin spice lattes, your favorite warm comfort foods, and pies... lots and lots of pies. And while sweet treats are a part of what makes the start of a new season so enjoyable (in moderation, of course), it's important to sprinkle a helping of physical activity onto your plate, no matter how full it may be.

In honor of National Women's Health and Fitness Day, we're encouraging YOU to get out, get active, and stay healthy! Whether you're participating in some of your favorite fall sports like football or cheerleading, or testing out the recipes for healthy alternatives to your favorite fall dishes, you owe it to yourself to live your best life! 

Since 1912, we've been committed to helping girls develop healthy habits—so much so that we've developed an entire program devoted entirely to keeping girls healthy and fit. And it doesn't stop there: we recently partnered with Nestlé to encourage girls to adopt a healthy lifestyle through the GirlSports program. Through GirlSports, girls everywhere are setting an example for the rest of the world by breaking a sweat in the name of fitness. You can see some of their skills in our recent GirlSports photo challenge

So how are you staying healthy today?
