Jumping for JOY- June Client Spotlight & Challenge Winner!

Sweet friend! 

The month of June we have encouraged you to light a fire within! We want to help you ignite the flame of passion for whole body health and wellness! Last week we challenged each of you to try the 5 Day Food Journal Challenge. We had so many amazing clients commit to 5-days of food journaling. Thank YOU for pushing yourself and committing to living transformed! If you didn't get to try the challenge last week, don't worry- it's never too late to start! Try it again this week! 

One of our clients, Joy Cooper took on this challenge and saw such transformation, as a result! Joy is an amazing mother and such a dedicated hard worker! You will see Joy and her beautiful daughter Hannah sweating together in the studio! They both always give 110% effort in and out of TransFit! Joy is dedicated to living transformed and has learned about the importance of accountability and dedication, even when it might be challenging! Joy has been food journaling and committed to our 5-day challenge! We are proud to announce her as our JUNE Client Spotlight and the Food Journal Challenge Winner! We are excited for you to read her journey and for you to see progress and total body, mind, and spirit transformation she is making one day at a time!

My name is Joy Cooper, I am a single mom to 3 AMAZING kids. We have been homeschooling for 9 years. I am a tutor with Classical Conversations, a VIPKID English teacher to children in China and a small group leader at Athens Church for a 9th-grade girls group.

I have been attending the TransFit luncheons, classes, and Bible study for the past few years but never very consistently. I wanted to be more consistent but I just couldn’t make it happen. I had even tried the “My Fitness Pal” app before but just could not commit to figuring out the daily meals and snacks.

A few weeks ago when Caroline mentioned that they were going to have a “My Fitness Pal” app challenge, it happened to coincide with my desire for change and accountability! So… I decided that I should try to figure out the app to track our food and water intake.  My daughter, Hannah, has been using the app for a year! She helped us figure out the app and plan out our meals for the first few days. I will say that once you figure out the first few days it does seem to get easier.  Hannah knew that I liked little treats at the end of my day so she had me add my “treats” in first so that I had enough at the end of the day for a treat. (piece of dark chocolate or a serving of Halo ice cream) When I first started using the App, I was AMAZED at how many things that I would just pick up and eat throughout the day. The App is a great accountability partner!

I now have set a goal to go to 3 TransFit classes a week. I plan ahead and make my schedule fit around the classes. I love the encouraging atmosphere and people at TransFit. At the end of every session when we are stretching and relaxing with music that encourages our hearts and God’s Word proclaimed over our lives, I am refreshed and ready for what God has planned for the day.  One of my favorite verses is from Psalms 34:5 “Those who look to HIM are RADIANT; their faces are never covered with shame.” Every time I leave TransFit I am reminded to “look to Him”.  God is the one that inspires me and encourages me but he uses the sweet ladies of TransFit to remind me of just how good He is and how much He loves me! I LOVE worshiping my Heavenly Father with these ladies each week in the TransFit Studio.

Here are a few of Joy's favorite things:

My favorite foods right now are the Halo “Candy Bar” ice cream, Oatmega bar “chocolate coconut”, Hint “mango grapefruit” water and Trader Joe’s “Cowboy Quinoa veggie burger. I have been making a salad with the veggie burger, romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, mini cucumber, 1/2 cup of fresh salsa from Sam’s and a Tsp of sour cream.

Join Us For The Food Journal Challenge! One Week of Food Journaling Accountability To Transform You!

CWP_9065.NEF.jpg

Sweet friends!

This week we want to challenge you to a week of accountability with your nutrition! We are challenging each of YOU to a 5-day Food Journal Challenge! Take this challenge with us and submit your journal at the end of the 5 days and be entered in to WIN $100 CREDIT toward sessions! Check out the details below!

IMG_1290.JPG

What is the challenge?

Keep a food journal starting Monday and going through Friday, 5 DAYS! Download the MyFitnessPal app and log your food, outlining the details of your meals and snacks throughout the day.

cassiewrightphoto00077 copy.jpg

Why take the challenge?

Using a food journal is the number one way you can take control of your healthy lifestyle. Everyone struggles with what we put in our mouths and self-awareness helps us to realize what food and beverages we are actually fueling our body with daily. Journaling is an amazing tool for weight loss, assessing a food intolerance, or to treat a deficiency.  We have seen the MOST effective results with our nutrition clients who have kept a food journal and showed it to us weekly! The week of accountability is one important key to unlock your success in reaching your personal goals. You can live anywhere and take this challenge. If you have time to whine about your body, you have time to write down what you ate during the day. No excuses, friends, you CAN DO this challenge! You bite it, you write it!  We are here for you and will be your partner in this journey! Let’s do it – start today, be honest, and you will see results!

cassiewrightphoto00049.jpg

5 Helpful Tips to Get Started on the Food Journal Challenge!

  1. Download the MyFitnessPal app and create an account! You can also do a handwritten food journal if you don't care for the app.
  2. Commit to doing the food journal every day for 5 days.
  3. Write down 3 goals for the week right now, and tell someone else out loud your goals!
  4. Be honest! We are not judging you on what you eat- the challenge is for you to become a healthier person and by journaling, you will gain a greater awareness of what you are eating daily!
  5. Clean out the pantry and refrigerator.  Start the week off right; any food or beverages that are tempting to you- TOSS! You don’t need it and neither does your family! Start the week fresh with a clean refrigerator and pantry so that you can restock with fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. YES, YOU CAN!

We believe in YOU! You CAN commit to 5 days of food journaling! We want to provide you accountability! Encourage one another to take the challenge and share your food journals with one another. Accountability is a key to your success! Let's do it, ladies!

Living Transformed on Vacation- Tips from Lisa!

Happy Thursday, friends! 

We are SO glad we were back in the studio this week. Each of you brought so much energy and worked so hard. June is off to a great start! We hope that you are joining us for our Light a Fire in You- Squat Challenge! Remember that completing this challenge each day and turning in your calendar at the end of the month, enters you into the drawing for a MONTH OF FREE SESSIONS! Throughout June, we are excited to share our living transformed on vacation tips and ideas from some of our trainers! This week, we will hear from Lisa and what she has to say about how she lives transformed on vacation! 


Summer is in full swing at our home and I’m enjoying every minute of it!  We have lots of travel plans and I’m excited to practice healthy living even when on the road.  Meal planning, nutrient rich snacks, and fun filled activities keep us feeling our best when away from home.  

Meal planning while on vacation can help save time resulting in yummy meals and snacks and less trips to the grocery. Packing healthy snacks to bring down to the water or in your backpack while touring the town keeps you feeling your best without any unwanted calories.  Many vacations offer the opportunity for biking, walking, swimming, and other outdoor activities.  Take advantage!!!  Your body will feel great and its an awesome way to spend time with your family.  Don’t forget to keep you water bottle close by!  


Here is a great High Protein Trail Mix that you can pack for the road and bring down to the beach with you! 

High Protein Trail Mix

  • 1 cup lightly salted almonds
  • 1 cup lightly salted walnuts
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup dried cranberries or blueberries
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (leave chocolate chips out if you will be outdoors) 
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

**For nut allergies, replace the almonds and walnuts with pumpkin seeds & sunflower seeds!

You can always toast the nuts in the oven at 450 degrees for 3-5 minutes first to bring out a rich flavor then toss with favorite mix-ins.

Let the family measure and mix and have fun playing with your favorite combinations. Place 1/4 cup into snack bags and keep in your snack basket! 


Thank you, Lisa for sharing with us and encouraging us that meal planning is possible and just as important on vacation! You can always refer to our TRANSFORM section of the website for great recipes and workouts, as well as our FREE app! Look out for our future posts from other trainers, as we share and encourage one another to continue to live transformed on vacation! 

We hope to see you in the studio this week! If you have any questions, please email us at transfitathens@gmail.com. 

Blessings, 

Team TransFit
