As we know, eating refined and processed sugar can have a negative impact on your health! As we reach the halfway point of our TransFive No Sugar Challenge this week, you may be starting to crave sugar and being tempted to reach for that pack of candy! Be STRONG! Here are three tips to satisfy your sweet tooth and curb those sugar cravings this week!

  1. Brush your teeth

    Brushing your teeth can help stop those sugar cravings! Not only will you have fresh breath, but you won’t want to eat any sugar after brushing!

    2. Drink hot tea

    Drinking hot tea can not only help you curb your sugar cravings, but it can also help fill you up. If you’re reaching for sugar for a boost of energy, grab some green tea! You can also try mint tea, lemon balm tea or carob tea.

    3. Chew sugar-free gum

    Chewing sugar-free gum is a great way to stop those sugar cravings! Step out of your comfort zone, and break that habit! Instead of reaching for that piece of chocolate or sweet treat after dinner, pop in a piece of sugar free gum!

    4. Reach for fruit

    Grab some fruit when you are tempted by sugar cravings! Sugar is a source of natural sugar and will keep you from reaching for processed sugar while also giving your great fiber and nutrients. You can eat raw fruits, put fruits in your morning smoothie or infuse your water by adding a few berries to stop cravings!

    We have great smoothie recipes in our TransFive No Sugar Challenge eBook! It’s not too late to join us! Download it HERE.

    5. Go for a walk

    When you start craving sugar, go for a walk around the neighborhood or get a change of scenery to keep your mind off the sugar that you are craving. Not only will this curb your sugar craving, but it will help you reach your daily goal of exercise! It’s a win-win!

Ready, Set, RUN!

Let us encourage you! 

Yes, we have completed 1/2 of 2018! Finishing 2018 with excellence, success, reaching your goals and dreams is within your reach! We believe in you and know that achieving your dreams does not happen by accident!  Are you ready to come out of your comfort zone to accomplish a new goal? Let's re-light the flame and come fully alive, renew our minds, and believe you CAN do this! 

Summer is a great time to be outside -running, walking, or jogging for fun or training for a new race.

If you are not a "runner" walking, jogging, and movement is important for your transformation. Meet below, Lisa Patton, our TransFit Running Coach and Personal Trainer, Lisa tells us her Top 10 Reasons to Run below!

Come out of your comfort zone and try something NEW! The Athens Half Marathon and 5k is the October 20th/21st weekend and now is the time to start training to walk, run, or jog this amazing event!  We have a FREE training plan below! 


Lisa’s Top 10 Reason’s to RUN! 

Hebrews 12:1-2

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer, and perfecter of faith.”

10. To achieve goals! 

There is a variety of goals to be set for a run; finishing a workout, going farther, going faster, and more. As an added bonus, setting and achieving goals boost your confidence and self-esteem!

9. To tone legs and butt! 

Not only is running an awesome heart-pumping workout, it also serves as strength training for your legs and booty! When running your lower body carries your entire body weight and with each run, your bones and muscles get stronger.

8. You can do it anywhere. 

At the park, in the city, in the neighborhood, or on the beach you can run. If the weather doesn’t allow, hit the treadmill.

7. Running burns serious calories. 

Typically running can burn an estimate of 100 calories per 10 minutes depending on pace. Jogging/Running helps us keep a healthy body weight. After a run be ready to fuel your body with healthy food choices.

6. Running gets you outdoors to enjoy God’s beautiful creation. 

God has given us such an incredible world to enjoy. Even if you're not going to stop and smell the flowers during your cardio workout, you can look around and smile and thank God for His awesome work.

5. Running reduces stress! 

Not that any of us have stress in our lives, but just in case please note Minutes into your run your brain begins to release hormones that naturally improve your mood, making you calmer and more relaxed... YES, PLEASE.

4. Running can be family time. 

Your run can include the kids biking beside you or a chat with your husband about weekend plans. A run can look like a fun game of chase with the entire family. When its race time the family can be there cheering you on or running beside you.

3. Running is SOCIAL! 

It is amazing how much better you feel after a run with your friends. It’s a time to encourage each other, sometimes vent, and then encourage again. It’s a recipe swap and family activity planning. It’s also a chance to get to know someone new and make friendships that will always share a special bond.

2. Running can be Quiet time. 

I know I just raved about running being fun with family and friends, but sometimes it also a time to be alone. A time to clear your mind, to be quiet, to think, to daydream, to pray, to listen.



God has given us such amazing gifts; our bodies, our friends, our health, our minds, our world, our community, and our families. These are just a few of the things we are reminded of and can praise Him for on a run or walk! 

“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous”

Psalm 139:13-14
