3 Tips for Your Healthiest Thanksgiving!

Hi friends! 

Wow, can you believe Thanksgiving is almost here?! This week has already been full of family and friends and it has been on my mind how thankful I am for my 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 portions. Moderation 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. A healthier way to prepare your turkey is to brine it! Check out this video below from Fire & Flavor to see how to brine the turkey! 

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!

Amazing Client Transformation- Keri Adams

Ladies, you are amazing!

You have shown us this week that you are ALL IN! You haven given us your absolute best in the studio with each workout and participating in the food journal challenge this week! We want to say thank you! For giving your best through those tough workouts (even with a smile!), for committing to food journaling and for committing to your  health!

As we enter into this Thanksgiving holiday, let us reflect on The One who has given us our health and who gives us daily strength. Focus on our theme for the month — “Nourish Your Body in November.” During this holiday season, reflect on how you nourish your body, mind and spirit. Part of nourishing your mind is filling it with positive thoughts and thoughts of gratefulness!

This Thanksgiving holiday, you also can continue to reach your goals! Yes, you can! Thanksgiving is one day out of the year. And this year, our team wants to encourage you to remember that key word in our theme: nourish. It’s not all about the food! ; ) Use this holiday, to nourish your body, nourish your mind and nourish your spirit. Let that time of fellowship among family and friends be a time of nourishment for your spirit!

Stay tuned for our Black Friday Special!

We want to introduce you to one of our clients — Keri Adams! Her dedication to her workouts and commitment to nutrition is inspiring! She has lost inches and body fat and has made such changes that are affecting her not only her body but her mind!

Here is Keri’s transformation journey...

I started at TransFit in May 2016, after my friend, Lauren Harrell, invited me to Caroline's yoga class'. I've been doing yoga for years, but never a full-on gym/weights experience. After trying a Transformer session, I was hooked. The atmosphere was so positive and welcoming.

After I workout, my mood is instantly better, and I have so much more energy throughout the day. I also enjoy the fellowship with all these wonderful women! Getting up at 5:00 is the most challenging, but if I've done that, I know my day is about to be a good one!

I try to do 2-3 Transformer sessions a week, and yoga or walking (and now running) on my own. 

IMG_3540.JPG

Getting up and working out before I begin my day has made a huge difference in my life. I used to dread getting up every morning, knowing I had to make my hour-long commute to work. Now I look forward to that hour I have to myself, with more positive thinking. Some days I just pray all the way to work, and others I just enjoy some good music. Either way, I'm present in the moment, and not on autopilot.

I am proud to be living a healthier lifestyle, in general. I’m cooking more (thanks to TransFit), and I’m more active. I can feel the difference every day.

My current goal is being more consistent with my nutrition and keeping a positive attitude.


Two of Keri’s favorite TransFit recipes:

Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo

Ingredients:

   2 chicken breasts, seasoned with salt & pepper then cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces 2 cups cooked broccoli (steamed)

   8oz whole wheat rotini or spaghetti squash

   2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

   2 teaspoons minced garlic

   2 Tablespoons whole wheat flour

   1 cup low sodium chicken broth

   1/4 cup almond milk

   1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

   salt & pepper

   1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions:Cook pasta/spaghetti squash according to package directions, reserving 1/2 cup pasta cooking water before draining. Set aside.

Heat extra virgin olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 1 minute. Sprinkle in flour then whisk to incorporate and cook for 1 additional minute.

Slowly whisk in chicken broth, then milk. Whisk in Greek yogurt, salt and pepper, then turn the heat down to low and let the mixture simmer until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Turn the heat off then stir in parmesan cheese, then chicken. Pour over cooked pasta then add broccoli and stir well. Add a little reserved pasta cooking water if sauce is too thick. Serve


Crock Pot Beef Carnitas

Ingredients:

   2 lbs flank steak

   1 yellow onion, chopped

   1 green bell pepper, chopped

   1 red bell pepper, chopped

   1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

For spice rub---

   2 tsp chili powder

   1 tsp cumin

   1/4 tsp onion powder

   1/4 tsp garlic powder

   1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

   1 tsp salt & black pepper

For serving---

   Corn tortillas

   Avocado slices

   Cilantro

   Your favorite salsa

   Limes

Directions:

Mix together all spices in a small bowl. Rub the spices all over your flank steak---be generous here! Then, place your at the bottom of your crock pot.

Cover the steak with the chopped onions, bell peppers and jalapeño pepper. Turn heat on LOW and cook for 8 hours. After 8 hours, remove meat from crock pot and shred with a fork. You can either stick the shredded meat back in for another hour or serve as is.

To serve, heat your corn tortillas in a skillet on the stove. Spoon some carnitas on a tortilla then top with salsa, avocado cilantro and a squeeze of lime. You can also serve on a bed of greens or cauliflower rice! 


We are so proud of you, Keri, continue to transform and give your best each day! You inspire us, and we all want to follow your goals in keeping a positive attitude, especially around the holidays, too! We can all do it!

5 Tips to keep you on track for your best Thanksgiving!

Hello friends! 

 

Can you believe it's Thanksgiving week already? What an energizing day of workouts in the TransFit Studio yesterday! Congrats to Amy O'Neil for winning the Food Journal Challenge and thanks to so many ladies who give 150% in the TransFit studio each day! Already, this week has been full of family and friends and it has been on my mind especially how thankful I am for my amazing clients, friends and family. My clients continually bless me and inspire me as they strive to live healthier in body, mind, and spirit and my friends and family make my life so bright! My cup overflows! 

As Thursday approaches friends, let's stay focused on everything we are thankful for--especially the opportunity we have to live our healthiest life. While this seems very hard to do during the holidays, let's remember that we CAN stay on track! 

Holiday Extravaganza is well underway and there is a lot of money in the pot to date! You still have until today at 8pm to weigh in before holidays! The goal of this game is to keep you accountable to keep your weight the same over the holidays or to become the BIGGEST LOOSER and WIN the cash money in the POT or one of the amazing prizes (like the FULL OUTFIT from lululemon)!!!

During Thanksgiving, the main idea is to remember PORTION CONTROL! It is okay to have a few “taboo” foods. You do not have to avoid dessert completely, just focus on moderation! 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, choose a sweet potato with honey instead and turkey, vegetables and cranberry sauce then have a smaller piece of pumpkin pie (a MUCH better choice than pecan- which can hold over 500 calories per slice!!) This week, let us remain focused on striving for our goals- and be on the lookout for a SPECIAL BLACK FRIDAY RELEASE with TransFit!! 

We are releasing our first e-book!! It will be a 14 Day Recharge to totally recharge your holidays in body, mind, and spirit, stimulate your metabolism, and have a break though in your healthy lifestyle!! The 14 Day Recharge will be released Friday at a SPECIAL discount price so get ready!! 


Moving into Thursday- try these 5 Holiday tips:

 1. Make a list of why you started working out and read it before going to social events over the holidays! Keep your goals in mind.

 2.  Its okay to say “NO” to all the food pushers! You don’t have to try everyone’s “famous recipe”. Compliment the host in other wonderful areas.

3. Exercise over the holidays: Be ready to be flexible; your usual workout times may not work especially when so many parties and get together are happening. Instead of skipping your normal workout time all together, try to fit it somewhere else in your schedule (20 minutes may be all you can get one day). Here is a great HIIT workout for this holiday season that can be done ANYWHERE at any time!

4. Make exercise into a fun family event! (ex. Trip to stone mountain, walk in the park, family bike ride). Also, think of exercise as a form of worship! 

5. Keep up the November  Holiday Extravaganza challenge – this week is the cardio challenge!!

Take an afternoon walk before or after your meal, looking at all the beautiful leaves and spending some time be thankful for all He has blessed you with. It will be the sweetest Thanksgiving yet!  You will be left feeling so much better in every area- body, mind and spirit.  Enjoy celebrating your health and spending time with those you love, and have an incredible start to this wonderful holiday season.

Blessings,

Caroline

Give Thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
