🔥 7 Foods that Balance Hormones and Help You Lose!

Hey friends,

What an awesome week it’s been at the studio! We are so proud of you all for showing up and starting January strong. If you haven’t read about Paige Colquitt’s Holiday Extravaganza transformation, check that out on our blog HERE.

Have you ever felt like you’re exercising and eating a better-balanced diet, but still seeing no progress? Still feeling sluggish? Often, unbalanced hormones can sabotage your goal of feeling your best. Your body’s hormones help control everything from your metabolism to your body’s fat storage. Today we want to introduce you to 7 superfoods you can add into your daily nutrition plan to revive your body to help you feel your best!

Screen_Shot_2019-01-18_at_10.03.08_AM_600x.png

Avocados

Avocados contain a substance known as beta-sitosterol. Beta-sitosterol has been shown to significantly lower blood cholesterol levels, balance cortisol levels, and decrease inflammation in the body. And, you can add them to literally anything! Who doesn’t love another reason to eat avocados?

Nuts

Almonds contain protein and fiber, and are known to slow the absorption of carbohydrates in the body. Studies have found that walnuts are also a good source of the hormone melatonin, which helps promote more restful sleep.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon has the ability to speed up the metabolism and stabilize blood sugar levels, which can help with weight loss. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help keep your body healthy. In fact, it’s the cinnamaldehyde in cinnamon that naturally helps balance the body’s hormones. Add some cinnamon to your oatmeal or sprinkle some on an apple and enjoy a healthy snack!

Green Tea

Studies have shown that green tea extract increases metabolism and helps the body burn fat. It provides a boost of energy while blocking the release of the stress hormone cortisol, which helps gut the accumulation of belly fat! It also helps you warm up on these cold winter days! Purchase our team’s favorite green tea on Amazon HERE.

Pomegranates

Pomegranates have amazing anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties that help keep the body healthy and fight off disease. They also provide the same estrogens that the female ovaries produce – estradiol, estrone, and estriol. Adding pomegranates to your diet can help reduce mood swings while helping your body combat breast cancer and heart disease.

Turmeric

Adding turmeric to your meals will do more than just spice things up. Turmeric naturally reduces inflammation, pain, and swelling in the body. It also helps to balance your hormones and keep your immune system functioning properly! Sprinkle it on your food or make Turmeric Tea or Golden Milk for a warm drink. Get our team’s favorite Turmeric from Amazon HERE.

Broccoli

Broccoli contains high amounts of photochemical called indoles, which play a large role in estrogen metabolism. Indoles work to convert estrogen into a safer form for the body to metabolize, which reduces the risk of estrogen-linked cancer, including breast cancer and prostate cancer.

🎄 5 Tips to Manage Holiday Parties This Year

Sweet friends,

The holiday season brings so many wonderful things to our lives! We get to spend time with our families and friends and celebrate the birth of our Savior. There’s so much to get excited about!

However, with these holiday celebrations comes holiday parties where we are surrounded by endless amounts of food! Often, we are surrounded by such homemade goodness that we can’t help but over eat, and then we feel guilty afterwards! Let’s not feel that way this holiday season!

Below are FIVE tips to help you navigate holiday parties this Christmas season!

orange-pomegranate-salad-close-1.jpg
  1. Drink a large glass of water before the party.

Drinking water can help you feel full for longer. Drink 1-2 glasses of water before you go to the party to help eliminate mindless snacking. You can also carry a glass of water with you at the party to give you something to hold and drink without reaching for unhealthy snacks!

2. Keep moving!

Go to the party with the mindset that the party is for fellowship and spending quality time with friends or family and isn’t about food! Make your way around the room talking and enjoying others’ company, and you won’t think about the treats!

Make sure you are exercising regularly! Stay on track with your exercise goals during the holiday season. Block off workout times in your schedule and don’t miss! When you are exercising regularly, you won’t want to undo all of the hard work that you have put in!

3. Eat a high-protein snack before the party.

A high-protein snack can help you curb your cravings and help you be full before you arrive at the party! After eating your snack, you will be full and satisfied and will be less likely to mindlessly snack while you are there. Often, people eat less in preparation of a big party to try to “save calories”, but this usually leads to overeating foods that will not satisfy or fuel your body in the long run! Good examples of high-protein snacks are:

  • 1/4 cup of nuts

  • 1/2 cup of trail mix

  • 1 cheese stick

  • 1 hard boiled egg

  • 1/2 cup of cooked edamame

  • Kind bars

  • Turkey roll-ups

  • Rice cake layered with nut butter and chopped walnuts

    4. Chew sugar free gum.

    Chewing sugar-free gum is a great way to stop those sugar cravings! It will give you something to chew, but will save you the calories! Instead of reaching for that piece of chocolate or sweet treat, pop in a piece of sugar free gum!

    5. Bring a healthy snack or treat!

    Bring something to the party that you know you can munch on without feeling guilty. Your friends will thank you, too! Some great options for healthy dishes are:

  • Lean meat and cheese trays

  • Fruit or vegetable trays

  • Homemade trail mix

  • One of our TransFit winter recipes!

  • Strawberry Edamame Salad

IMG_9955.jpg

Don’t forget about our Favorite Things Luncheon this Thursday, December 13th from 12-1 in the TransFit studio! It will be a wonderful time of fellowship with our TransFit community! Think of something that you LOVE (valued around $15). Bring ONE of your favorite items. We will draw names and everyone will go home with a NEW FAVORITE THING!

Tips to Make The Second Half of 2018 Your Best!

Clean slate, yes, it's Sunday! Let today be a fresh start for YOU! You can make the 2nd half of 2018 your best! Today, shift your thoughts... focus on being thankful for the body that you have and set a new goal (or two) to ensure you are treating your body with care and respect! Write this goal down, put the goal as a reminder in your phone, and tell a friend- that is how you make your goals become reality! 

One new goal could be to increase the amount of high-quality protein that you include in your daily nutrition plan!  Protein is an essential food for repairing muscle tissue,  building and toning muscles, and for keeping you feeling full for longer. High protein snacks should be consumed after 30-45 minutes after workouts for maximum muscle building and repair benefits and should be consumed as a snacks during the day to fight cravings and help manage weight.

Here are some of our Dietitian, Kaeti Shurling's,  favorites:

  • 1 hard-boiled egg- 8g
  • 1/2 cup chickpeas- 18g
  • 1/2 cup cashews- 16g
  • 3 oz of tuna- 25g

Try out these great high protein snacks and start your healthy lifestyle with a delicious, higher protein nutrition plan!

Here is a high protein healthy popsicle to try this week! 

Screen Shot 2017-07-17 at 11.16.03 AM.png

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup – strawberries
  • 1 1/4 cup – coconut water
  • 1 teaspoon – honey
  • 4 teaspoon – chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cup pieces – mango

Directions:
Puree strawberries (fresh or frozen) with half of the coconut water in a blender or food processor. Taste the mixture and blend in honey to desired sweetness, if needed. Stir in 2 teaspoons of chia seeds. Set aside. Puree mango (fresh or frozen) with the other half of the coconut water in a blender or food processor. Taste the mixture and blend in honey to desired sweetness, if needed. Stir in the remaining 2 teaspoons of chia seeds. Alternately pour each fruit mixture (for a marbled look) into popsicle molds and freeze until set. Makes 10 (3 ounces) popsicles. If you have an Ice Pop Maker let it freeze for 45 minutes and then add wooden sticks so they stay in place better and the lid will come off easier.

CWP_9276-2-1.jpg

Additionally, here is one of our favorite workouts you can try today! Add this workout to your week and then enjoy a high protein popsicle after! Let's do it, ladies!

Inspiring Generations of Women- Spotlight on Amazing Middle School Girls!

Hello Sweet Friends!

Today, we have the joy of hearing from one of our amazing Personal Trainers, Katie Lord, who supports our amazing middle school girls! She adores these middle school girls and comes alongside them to provide encouragement, support, care, and hope as they learn about whole body health! We are so thankful for Katie and our middle school girls who are learning what it means to live transformed! 

IMG_0007.jpg

Think back to your years in middle school. What thoughts come to mind? Are all of your memories positive, or like me, do you also remember a lot of awkwardness and feeling uncomfortable with your body! I wish someone had come alongside me during middle school to offer encouragement and guidance in how to take care of my body and be confident in how God made me! 

IMG_0017.jpg

At TransFit, we aspire to do just that for this generation of middle school girls through the TransFit Girls sessions! We teach the girls about whole body health and help them to love their bodies! We hope to empower each girl to be confident in who they are and know that they are beautiful, strong, and unique! 

IMG_0019.jpg

In the 55 - minute TransFit girls session, we focus on making exercise enjoyable, learning how to correctly perform exercises, and the importance of nutrition and faith. Each week, the girls engage in an energizing and fun workout along with a cooldown time with stretching and inspiration. Some weeks the girls also complete simple crafts or hear a guest speaker that relates to the weekly theme. We help the girls set attainable goals each month and encourage them to stay committed to reaching those goals! We want the girls to give their best not just in the workout, but in everything they do! 

IMG_0014.jpg

It is such a blessing to spend time with the middle school girls each week and teach them about living transformed! The girls have a blast during the workout! They work hard, all while smiling, laughing, and making new friends. God is changing the hearts of this generation of middle school girls! He is helping them to be confident, strong young women who are lights of kindness, love, and hope to the other girls in their community! Middle school is such an important stage in a young girl's life, and we pray that each of the girls finds inspiration to live transformed - body, mind, and soul. 

IMG_0006.jpg

It is an honor and joy for us to welcome these sweet middle school girls into the studio. We are so thankful for the joy, sparkle, laughter, and energy each of these girls brings each Wednesday afternoon! If you know someone who would like to join us for our middle school girls session, they can sign up on our FREE app. The middle school girls sessions meet on Wednesday's from 4:30-5:30. We would love for your daughter or friend to join us! 

If you have any questions, please email us at transfitathens@gmail.com.

Meet Mallory and Come Transform With Us!

TF -- Headshot.jpg

Happy Monday! 

We are so excited to announce that we are welcoming a new Personal Trainer to our TransFit Team! Meet Mallory Gilliam! Many of you have met this bright spirit in the TransFit studio over the past weeks and she starts her new sessions tonight! We are so excited to have Mallory on our team to encourage and inspire you and we are so thrilled for her to meet her! Mallory cheered at UGA and her contagious energy and bright spirit will propel you give your best inside her sessions and living transformed outside our #happyplace! 

IMG_0856.JPG

My name is Mallory Gilliam, and I am so grateful to be a part of the TransFit community!  I am thankful to share my passions for health, wellness, and faith through TransFit!  I want to inspire, motivate, and encourage all women to trust the Lord with their hearts, minds, and bodies because that's when transformation unfolds.

While attending The University of Georgia, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Advertising.  My love for Georgia Athletics came alive as I was fortunate enough to carry out my endeavors as a member of the UGA Cheerleading Team.  My time Between the Hedges, on the competition mat, and in the weight room lifted my passion for exercise.  I was named to the NCA All-American Team and honored as one of the Top 20 NCA Collegiate Cheerleaders across the nation.  After cheerleading ended, I moved to Dallas, Texas for my dream internship.  During this time, I truly began focusing on the foods I was putting into my body and I began overtraining.  I was left broken and tired.  This is when I knew it was time to focus on my faith.  I finished my last semester of college and later became a pharmaceutical sales representative.  God had blessed me with everything I wanted, but as I began focusing on my still moments, I felt Him leading me in other directions.  After trying a few other career paths, His purpose for me became clear.  I am passionate about helping others through exercise and nutrition, so I honored His gifts for me, and pursued group fitness and personal training.

I am excited to help TransFit ladies on their journey, and my goal is to encourage transformation through shifting thoughts of comparison and perfection to happiness and peace.

IMG_1391.jpg

Some of Mallory's favorite things outside of TransFit include:

  • Cooking, especially for others
  • Taking walks around Five Points
  • Painting
  • Yoga
  • Georiga Athletics
  • Wednesday nights with my small group ladies
  • Dancing in my kitchen
  • All dogs, but I have a special place for big dogs
  • Sundays
  • Giving and wrapping gifts
  • Spending time with loved ones
  • Spreading kindness and smiles because we all need encouragement
  • Having alone time to pray
IMG_5160.PNG

Mallory will be teaching our NEW Monday 7:15 PM session and Saturday 10 AM session! We hope that you will come meet Mallory and join us at these sessions! You can sign up on our FREE app

IMG_1411.jpg

Keeping our hearts healthy is such a vital aspect of our whole body health! We look forward to seeing you in the studio soon! Let's kickstart this week and make it count! Continue to work hard towards your February goals! We believe in YOU!

Don't forget to sign up for our new sessions! We hope to see you soon! If you have any questions, please email us at transfitathens@gmail.com.

TransFit's Personalized Online Training

"For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ."

Colossians 2:5

We are continuing to focus on accountability and motivation in March! Please keep doing your adherence charts!  I have received several requests recently from friends who are prevented by distance or just busy life from working with me in person. Distance should never be a barrier to a healthier you! I have decided to begin offering personalized online training, in order to reach out to those who may not have the means to get to my studio or a gym everyday. 

The online program will include you filling out a preliminary questionnaire, then chatting with me via Skype or phone so we can discuss your goals in-depth. After that, you will receive a customized exercise program which includes strength, cardiovascular, and flexibility training. Since I am a certified nutritionist, I will also offer recommendations about caloric requirements and macronutrient (carbohydrates, proteins, fats) levels to include in your diet.

The monthly personalized online program includes four - 20 minute Skype or phone check-ins (once a week) to review your progress and discuss any changes we need to make so the program can be as effective as possible for you. It's natural to face some obstacles with your training, which is why it can be so hard to do it alone. I will work with you to find solutions, and to make this the best experience possible for you.

In my experience, changing a lifestyle takes time. My clients generally need about 4-6 weeks before their lifestyle changes become habits, and their results are readily apparent. My most successful clients tend to be those who commit to an online training period of at least three months, and those that try to "go it alone" after one session rarely experience long-term success.

Because I want your online personal training to be successful, I require that all new clients commit to a two month period, and after that I am happy to work with you on a month-by-month basis. All plans start on the 1st or the 15th of the month.
