First Place Winner- Brionne Antwine

My name is Brionne, I am married to Jamie, and we have 4 kids, ages 5-12. While trying to balance kids at three different schools who are all playing sports, working part time as a nurse at Piedmont Athens Regional, and keeping up with my husband’s busy work schedule, nutrition and exercise was not the priority it should have been. It was all too easy to pick up a pizza or go though the drive thru between practices. When I stepped on the scale at the beginning of the Holiday Extravaganza, I knew something needed to change! The first step was to end my relationship with Dr. Pepper  The break up wasn’t as hard as I anticipated, and the more water I drank, the more I craved...water! I made it a priority to get in 96oz a day. I started keeping a food journal, and at first submitting daily to Caroline. Talk about accountability! I found ways to incorporate more vegetables in my diet, and spinach has found a permanent place in our fridge. I aimed for a salad a day, and added spinach and fruit smoothies into my morning routine. I found myself sautéing zucchini for lunch, which was a far cry from my ham and cheese sandwiches with a side of Chex Mix! 

The hardest week for me was attempting the “No Added Sugar” challenge. I almost quit before I even started! But I learned so much that week! Turns out that my “healthy” yogurt, wasn’t so healthy after all! It was loaded with sugar! I switched to the Dannon Oikos Triple Zero yogurt, which allows for a flavored yogurt with no added sugar. And I learned that most salad dressings have sugar (I honestly had no clue), but that a little olive oil and red wine vinegar still tastes delicious on my spinach, feta cheese, strawberry, and walnut salads!

I had fallen way out of routine with exercise, so Caroline encouraged me to aim for at least 30 minutes a day. Some days I would walk, some days I would jog, and some days I’d dust off an old workout DVD. Most importantly, I didn’t get discouraged when I missed a day. I planned exercise into my schedule, and my husband was very supportive to give me that “me time.” 

Now, I am looking forward to attending weekly Transformer classes. I love the accountability, and just because the challenge is over, I don't want this journey to end! Seeing results gives me the encouragement to continue!

Happy Thursday! 

We are off to an amazing start this January and we are excited to see all that this year will hold for YOU! With a new year, it is so important to focus on our goals for the month and upcoming year! We want to challenge each of you to take the time to think about your goals. We all have goals and dreams that we want to accomplish and our TransFit team wants to help you see each goal achieved! It is not too late to purchase a January Jump Start Package to help kick start your January! You can purchase it on the app HERE or on our website HERE

 A new year gives you time to start fresh with your goals. Let's not look back at the past at what we should have done or missed out on, but rather look to the present moment and get ready to focus on what we are going to accomplish! Setting goals will allow you to focus on what you want to accomplish- your dreams and your passions. Setting goals and completing action steps will help you to make what seems impossible become possible! In addition to goals, we must focus on accountability. When someone is on your side, keeping you on track with all of your goals, you can transform and achieve! This person should be someone who checks in with you, at least weekly, and is encouraging and motivating you to be your best! 

Please print and fill out this goals sheet below and send us a picture or bring it to the TransFit studio so we can help hold you accountable!

Congrats to all of our Holiday Extravaganza participants! We are so proud of each of you who participated in our challenge.

Walnut-Crusted Pork Tenderloin

  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1.5 Tbsp. mustard powder (I used regular mustard because I was out!) 
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash the pork tenderloin and pat it dry with paper towel. Mix the dry ingredients together (except the walnuts) and then rub all over the tenderloin. Next, cover the pork with the chopped walnuts (save just a few of the walnuts). Lightly spray a baking pan with olive oil spray and then place the tenderloin in the center of the pan and roast for 30 to 35 minutes. All ovens vary, so just check the pork with a meat thermometer to ensure it’s done (145 degrees). Serving suggestions: serve a few slices over a bed of your favorite greens sprinkled with the remaining chopped walnuts. Drizzle with your favorite vinaigrette dressing & enjoy!

  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-low heat, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the sliced shallots and saute until they start to caramelize, about 5 minutes Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and balsamic vinegar.

dsc062461-300x2271.jpg

Baked French Toast

Thankfully there is such a thing as healthy French toast. The Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bread eliminates refined flours and extra sugars, and the eggs add an additional protein boost that is welcome in any of my breakfasts. 

- 4 servings

  • 8 slices Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bread (or try whole wheat bread & sprinkled it w cinnamon....my kids don’t care for raisins)
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk (I use no sugar, vanilla)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup + extra for drizzling
  • 6 eggs
  • cinnamon

Cube bread into 1- 8 inch square pan

Whisk together almond milk, eggs and maple syrup.

Pour egg mixture over bread cubes, sprinkle with cinnamon and let soak for about 3 hours or overnight.

Bake at 375° for about 35-40 minutes, until eggs are set.

Cut into 4 pieces, drizzle with maple syrup and serve.

The portion size is huge and there are about 313 calories and 19 grams of protein per serving.

Healthier Breakfast Casserole

  • 4-5 links organic turkey or chicken breakfast sausage, (4 small links)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped (optional)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 2 1/2 cups low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt & pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2/3 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread, crusts removed

Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.Cook sausage in a skillet over medium heat, crumbling with a fork, until browned. Transfer to a bowl.Add oil, onion and bell pepper to skillet; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables soften, about 5 minutes. Add sausage and cook, stirring, until vegetables begin to brown, about 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and set aside.Whisk eggs and egg whites in a large bowl until blended. Whisk in milk, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir in 1/3 cup Cheddar. Arrange bread in a single layer in prepared baking dish. Pour egg mixture over bread and top with reserved vegetables and sausage. Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup Cheddar. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight.Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake casserole, uncovered, until set and puffed, 40 to 50 minutes. Serve hot.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare; cover and refrigerate overnight!

Who Needs Some Tips on How to Navigate Holiday Parties?! 🙋🏼

Hello sweet friend! 

As we continue into this wonderful season, one of the most challenging things in our health journey can be staying on track when we go to holiday parties. We all know  parties are to enjoy friends, family but also there can be endless amounts of food. People gather and all bring dishes that are so tempting and we often go through a cycle of overeating and then feeling guilt after the party. Friend, let's not so this to yourself this holiday season!  Bring a healthy dish to share and choose wisely! 

CWP_9621crop.jpg

Here are a few tips on how to have your best and healthiest holiday season yet.

  1. Focus on fellowship with family and friends! You are not there for the food. Yes, there will be a lot of food that only comes once a year but at the end of the day it is exactly that- food. Food was meant to nourish our bodies for service, not tempt us into over-indulgence and lead us to guilt. Go into your party knowing that this party is about fellowship and spending time with the ones you love. 
  2. Drink a large glass of water and eat a high-protein snack before the party.Now, you will be satisfied from a healthy snack going into the party and much less likely to reach for empty calories and mindless snacks. I know often people will not eat all day to "save their calories" for the big party or meal, however this leads to over-consumption of foods that are not going to satisfy or fuel you in the long run! Prepare before hand so you can enter and exit this party feeling healthy and nourished. Having victory! 
  3. Bring a healthy snack or treat that everyone can enjoy and so you will know you have a healthy option available. Some ideas are: lean meat and cheese trays, fruit and vegetable trays, homemade trail mix or glazed nuts. Below is an easy recipe that you can take that is sure to be a crowd favorite and leave everyone feeling great and not weighed down and guilty! 
  4. Keep moving! Stay on track with your fitness goals by continuing to schedule your workouts as usual. Block of these times in your schedule, so you don't skip a workout. When family is town, take walks together! Park further away from stores to get in extra steps! 
  5. Begin with the end in mind! Make everyday count! January is only a couple weeks away! Need some extra accountability? We're here for YOU and believe in YOU! The TransFit team wants to see you reach your goals! We want to see you get your $20 back in January at the end of our Holiday Extravaganza! Remember: consistency is key! Remind yourself daily to focus on Jesus the reason for the season. You can't control all of your circumstances, but you can control where you keep your focus-- on Him! 

Here are some great healthy recipes to take to your next holiday party!

IMG_0017.JPG

Strawberry Edamame Salad

  • 2 cups organic baby spinach
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/3 cup edamame
  • Tbsp. goat cheese (or feta or whatever your favorite is!)
  • 1/4 cup toasted, chopped pecans

Combine all ingredients together. Drizzle a tablespoon (or two) of your favorite dressing on top. I like a tablespoon of olive oil and balsamic vinegar! Don’t forget to make an extra salad or two for lunches this week!

IMG_9955.JPG

Fruit Kabobs

Perfect kid friendly healthy snack! Add one marshmallow, strawberry, banana, and grape for the perfect Santa kabob! 

Holiday Grain Bowl 

  • 1 cup cooked wild rice
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 6 radishes
  • 1/2 cup roasted chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup reduced sugar craisins 
  • 2 cups salad greens of choice
  • 1 shallot sliced
  • Fresh basil
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp green goddess dressing

First, make sure your rice and quinoa are cooked according to package directions. Slice your radishes and shallots. Arrange all ingredients into two bowls. Garnish with basil and pepper. Drizzle with green goddess dressing. 


Take this opportunity to practice your will power, and then notice how great your body and spirit feel after the party because you have experienced all of the great fellowship without overindulging. Parties should be filled with laughter, fun and time spent with the ones that you love. 

Now you may be wondering what to do if you do get off track and have one too many pieces or Christmas candy or dessert. Let it go- it is in the past. Clean the slate! Realize that this health journey you are on is not a diet. No friends, this is a lifestyle and sometimes you will face challenges! We encourage you in these times to remember why you started this lifestyle. Think for a second on all of the positive changes you made this holiday season in compared to your last. Think of how far you have come and all the progress you have made. Now with a renewed mind and spirit prepare to have your best and healthiest day tomorrow and drink plenty of water and green tea to help purify your body so you can feel your best! 

You can do this sweet friend! We are praying for you and can't wait to hear all the success that you all have and how God blesses your holiday season! 

Blessings,

Let's Finish This Year Strong! Check out our December Client Spotlight- Fran Hahn

Happy Friday, sweet friend! 

It has been such an awesome week in the studio as we start this month! This week we challenged each of you to try the TransFIVE sugar challenge. If you didn't get to try the challenge this week, challenge yourself to complete it next week! It's never too late to start! 

Today we want to introduce you to one of our clients, Fran Hahn who has taken on our challenges and seen transformation, as a result! Fran inspires each one of us at TransFit when she walks into the studio with her bright smile! She makes the best smoothies and always encourages US by sharing her favorite healthy snacks and recipes! Another quality we love about our friend, Fran, is her commitment to whole body health, not just exercise!

The week after Christmas in 1983, I got lost from my group of Auburn friends at a conference with about 20,000 other college students, and sat next to this hot, redheaded guy. One of the first things I said to him was: “If we got married, we would have all redheaded kids!” We did and we do! I have four redheaded kids, three daughters and a son, two sons-in-law (not redheaded), and a sweet granddaughter (not a redhead either).

unnamed-1.jpg

Paul and I have moved twelve times in our thirty-one years of marriage. We are so happy to have landed in Athens in the summer of 2016. Although I am a Tiger in a Dawg world, this is for sure one of my favorite places we have called home.

My good friend, Laura Wilfong, brought me to TransFit about a year ago, and I have loved coming ever since. Working out here is consistently one of my weekly highlights.

Believe it or not, I was the 1981 Alabama state high school champion in the two-mile run. And since then, I have tried it all when it comes to fitness: from Jane Fonda’s aerobics tapes in the 80’s, to long distance running and swimming in the 90’s, to track workouts with the family in the 00’s, to CrossFit and hot yoga this decade. I have pretty much tried it all! As I grew a bit older, I fell into an ugly spin cycle of working out hard, getting injured, resting a little, then diving back in, only to get injured again. And I have tried every wacky diet plan known to mankind.

575900_379940362028408_1506866365_n.jpg

So, coming here to TransFit has brought some much-needed consistency, balance and challenge in my approaches to food and exercise. TransFit incorporates exercises which don’t kill my body, but strengthen it. And, I am encouraged to stay on course with my diet.  

My big challenge at this point in my journey is in being consumed with how I look. I want a 25-year-old body at 55. And that just isn’t going to happen, no matter how hard I work or obsess. I am learning how to lean into Jesus and be thankful that I have the privilege to exercise, and to enjoy him as I do. And though it may sound silly, drinking my daily water allotment is always a struggle for me!

Aside from running a few races and just staying in the game at my age, I don’t have any huge fitness achievements. But, Jesus has been good to me; he meets in sweet ways as I work out, and in all parts of my life. I am truly grateful.

Fran, we are so proud of you! Thank you for sharing your story with us! You are such an inspiration! Ladies, let's finish the TransFIVE challenge STRONG and make this our best and healthiest holiday season, yet! We believe in you and know that you can do it.

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup hummus
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 lemons

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare one large baking dish or two smaller baking dishes with cooking spray.

Pat the chicken dry. Season the chicken breasts with generous pinches of salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the zucchini, squash and onion with olive oil until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper. If using one baking dish, place all of the vegetables on the bottom of the dish in an even layer. Lay the four chicken breasts evenly on top, then cover each chicken breast with the hummus so that the entire breast is covered. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the chicken and vegetables. Then sprinkle the pan with smoked paprika. Thinly slice the remaining lemon, and place the slices in between the chicken and vegetables.

**If using two pans, use one for the chicken and one for the vegetables.**Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Serve immediately.

Thanksgiving Day Inspiration! 🙏🏼

1 chronicles 16 34.PNG

Sweet friends, 

We are so grateful for you! This week has already been full of family and friends and it has been on our mind how thankful we are for our amazing clients, friends, and family. As Thursday approaches, let's stay focused on everything we are thankful for- especially the opportunity we have to live our healthiest life. Let's remember we can stay on track, even in the holiday season! Our Challenge this week for Holiday Extravaganza is to do cardio for 30 minutes each day! You can do it! 

During Thanksgiving, the main idea is to remember PORTION CONTROL. You do not have to avoid dessert completely, but focus on being mindful with your portionsModeration is the key! Maybe decide ahead of time which treat you want to have, and then decide which you could give up. For example- maybe skip the rolls and mashed potatoes, instead choose a sweet potato with honey and turkey, vegetables, and cranberry sauce, and then have a smaller piece or just a few bites of pumpkin pie. Toast some pecans for a healthier treat! Below are 3 Thanksgiving Tips to help you have a healthier and happier Thanksgiving Holiday! 

3 Holiday Tips:

  1. Make a list of why you started your fitness journey  and read it before going to your party or meal over the holidays! Keep your goals you set at the beginning of the month in mind! 
  2. It is okay to say "NO" to all the food pushers. You don't have to try everyone's famous recipe or try each of the foods that are sitting out. Check our healthy Thanksgiving recipes from our blog HERE
  3. Exercise over the holidays: Be ready to be flexible, your usually workout time may not work, so try to fit it somewhere else in your schedule. Join us at the Give Thanks 8K Thursday morning!

Take an afternoon walk before or after your meal, admiring the beauty outside and spending some time to be thankful for all He has blessed you with. Enjoy celebrating your health and spending time with those you love, and have an incredible start to this wonderful holiday season. Our Transfit Staff is grateful for you! 

Make sure to check back Friday morning for our Black Friday DEAL!

Need New Recipes and Workouts to Transform Your Thanksgiving?

Good morning sweet friends!

What a high energy week in the studio! Thank you!  Each of you are working so hard and we know that you are excited about the Holiday Extravaganza! With the holidays approaching, you may need this weekend to relax, and enjoy a delicious home-cooked  fall meal (click the link to get some great new menu ideas).  Cherish these times, slow down, and be grateful for the relationships in your life. Family meals are can be a time when you can learn what’s going on in everyone’s lives, when you can spark up a fun conversation, and just enjoy sweet company!

If you are like me, you've already begun to think about all the dishes you will "get" to prepare, events you will be going to, and the "full" (not busy) (yet wonderful!) schedule the next few weeks hold. Amidst all of the "fullness" of the season let's stay focused on our goals and be diligent even through the holidays!  There will be times when we will have a treat that maybe we didn't plan for or a day when we will miss a workout- BUT what is important is that you do not allow that to completely take your eyes off of your goals and your progress. If you put that small slip behind you but get right back on track, you will find that you are even better than before!! Patience and perseverance will be the name of the real holiday game!! 

Give each day your best in body, mind and spirit as you seek to become healthier and follow the Lord more each and every day! 

As you prepare for Thanksgiving, here are a few GREAT tried and true recipes from our amazing friends at Fire & Flavor that you can prepare for your family and guests. These dishes are DELICIOUS and so good for your body. You will be left satisfied and not have the miserable fullness that we have all experienced! Treat your body right this Thanksgiving and IT will be thankful!! 

Check out these great recipes from our client Gena Knox and her company Fire and Flavor!

Spice Rubbed Apple Smoked Turkey

Prep Time:  30 minutes + brine time

Cook Time:  About 2 ½ hours

Yields: 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 - Fire & Flavor Turkey Perfect Herb or Apple Sage Brine Kit (with bag)
  • 12-pound fresh turkey, neck and giblets removed
  • 2 large aluminum roasting pans
  • 12 whole carrots
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons Fire & Flavor Turkey Rub
  • Cotton string for tying
  • Fire & Flavor Premium Lump charcoal
  • 5 cups Fire & Flavor apple wood chips, soaked

FIRST  The day before cooking turkey, prepare brine according to package directions. Place turkey, breast side down in brining bag set inside an ice filled cooler.  Pour prepared brine and ice water over turkey.  Seal bag making sure to press out any extra air.  Brine for 12 hours or 1 hour per pound of turkey. 

NEXT  Remove turkey from brine, pat dry, but do not rinse.  Allow turkey to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before smoking.   Prepare charcoal grill for indirect heat (if using a Big Green Egg use deflector plate) and heat to 325°F. Double stack aluminum trays and line with carrots.  Place turkey on top of carrots and brush with oil; rub with Turkey Rub making sure to coat all sides.  Tie turkey legs together with cotton string and tuck wing tips under. 

LAST  Add 2 cups of wood chips to charcoal and place turkey over indirect heat.  Close lid and cook for 1 hour.  Add additional wood chips and, if necessary, more coals to keep grill heated to 325°F.  Close lid and continue cooking turkey until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of breast registers 165°F (cooking time is usually about 12 minutes per pound of turkey).  Carefully remove turkey and pan from grill and let rest for 30 minutes before carving. 

You can brine your turkey a day or two in advance.  Place brined turkey on rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate, uncovered) for up to 24 hours before cooking.   

Wheatberry Salad with Brussels Sprouts, Dried Cherries, and Pecans

This salad is delicious served warm or room temperature and leftovers are perfect over a salad.  If you want to make ahead, toss bacon, pecans and sprouts just before serving. 

Prep Time:  20 minutes

Cook Time:  1 hour
Yields:  8 servings

Salad:

  • 4 cups water
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 2½ cups wheat berries
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 2½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup toasted pecan halves, roughly chopped
  • 3 strips bacon, crumbled

Sprouts:

FIRST  In a large stock pot, bring water and stock to boil.  Add salt and wheat berries, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for about 45 minutes or until berries are tender, but still have a bite.  While berries are cooking, combine lemon juice and olive oil and set aside.  Drain berries, toss with half of dressing; set aide. 

NEXT  Preheat oven to 425°F.  Halve or quarter Brussels Sprouts, depending on their size.  Spread in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet coated with oil.  Drizzle sprouts with oil and sprinkle with Chicken Rub.  Toss and spread in an even layer, cut sides down.  Roast for about 20 minutes, until edges are brown and crispy, tossing half way through.  Remove from oven and combine with wheat berries. 

LAST  Toss wheat berries with cherries, pecans, bacon, and remaining dressing.  Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Serve room temperature or warm!

FIRST  Preheat oven to 425°F.  Cut squash into ½-inch slices and scoop seeds out with a spoon.  Coat two rimmed backing sheets with a little olive oil.  Toss squash with brown sugar and oil and spread in a single layer on baking sheets.  Roast for 25-30 minutes, until both sides are golden brown, flipping until half way through.

NEXT  While squash are roasting prepare dressing.  Whisk vinegar, mustard, honey, and oil; season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Are you ALL IN this Holiday Season?!

CWP_9339crop.jpg

Happy Sunday, friends! 

Hope you are finding some rest and recovery and time to recharge today. Last week, the TransFit studio was buzzing with excitement and we loved seeing your hard work and dedication to your health! We had the privilege of recently hearing from our new TransFit Registered Dietitian, Kaeti Shurling at our Lunch and Learn. We wanted to share these two key takeaways with you to help you be ALL IN this Holiday Season-

  1. Drink 80 oz of water daily and add frozen fruit to make it more flavorful! 
  2. Try to eat at least 2-3 servings of fish a week!                                                                        - Fish is packed with omega-3 fatty acids that have a number of health benefits.   Eating a diet with omega -3 fatty acids can reduce memory loss, lower the risk of heart disease, reduce inflammation, and can lower blood pressure! 

These are two tips that you can add to your weekly meal plan today, so that you can live transformed mind, body, and spirit. Kaeti has shared this incredible Grain Bowl recipe with us. Set aside time today to meal prep (download a FREE MEAL PLAN HERE) and plan out your workouts for the week will help you stay focused on your goals and help you stay committed to being ALL IN this Holiday Season!
