Wow, it has been an incredible week in the studio! We were so excited to announce our Holiday Extravaganza winners and we are still so proud of each of you for giving your best in the studio these past two weeks! Today, we want to share Jennifer's story with you! Jennifer Rickard won second place in our Holiday Extravaganza challenge and is truly living transformed!
I'm a home school mom of four and have a degree in Health Education & Promotion from the University of Georgia. I'm passionate about health... particularly gut health. The bacteria in our guts play a critical role in digestion, metabolic health, immune system, mental health and weight management. I'm also an independent ambassador with Plexus Worldwide: a company that offers a holistic approach to health & wellness.
That's also one of the many reasons I love TransFit. I love its mission to combine body, mind and spirit into our overall wellness. It's unlike any fitness program I've ever known. My regret is not starting sooner. My beautiful cousin, Lisa, tried to tell me how much I would love TransFit, but I shrugged it off. I was already a member of a local gym and group fitness was all the same, right? Wrong! I finally agreed to try a free community workout session supporting Mercy Clinic. So, on November 3rd I walked thru the TransFit doors for the very 1st time and was completely blown away! I knew that this was exactly what I needed. I had been going to gyms for my entire adult life, but I had never experienced such over-all "balance" (for lack of a better word). I love the positivity and encouragement. I love the change in mindset and goal setting. I love the meal planning and the informative blogs. But most importantly, I love the heart of TransFit. Worshiping the Lord through exercise and meditating on His Word and His promises while working out... it's truly an amazing experience.
Fast-forward a couple of weeks... When I learned about the Holiday Extravaganza challenge, I was all over it! I had a very specific goal for myself and I knew that this challenge was going to help get me there. So, I weighed in, measured and took some embarrassing belly pictures. I downloaded the "My Fitness Pal" app on my phone and began food journaling. I started meal planning and trying to more fruits and vegetables and high protein meals. I got creative in the kitchen and learned how to substitute healthy options for some of my favorite guilty pleasures. I committed to at least two strength-training classes each week at TransFit and 3-4 weekly cardio workouts. I started drinking half my body weight in ounces of water and got laser-focused with taking my Plexus products. I think that the key to being successful is writing down your goals, being consistent and surrounding yourself with positive people who will encourage and inspire you to be the best version of you. And even though the Holiday Extravaganza challenge is over, I know this is only the beginning for me! Live Transformed!
