❤️ Happy Healthy Valentine’s Day Inspiration and Recipes!

Sweet friends,

Happy early Valentine’s Day! We hope you have exciting plans to celebrate with your loved ones! As we all know, tomorrow is Valentine's Day and that typically that means lots of candy and sweets everywhere. Valentine's Day is such a perfect holiday to take extra time to show others how you love them! Take a moment to call an old friend and tell them hello. Along with loving others well this week, also take some extra time to love your body, mind and spirit this Valentine's Day! Breathe in God’s love for you. Below is truth about how much you are beloved.

Take some time to dwell on this verse. These are the Lord's thoughts about you! He has created you exactly as you are for a purpose. You are so beautiful and perfectly made in His sight! Take some time today to write down things you love about the way God made you. Now, go share this verse with a friend! Encourage your sweet friends today in their own beauty, inside and out. Valentine’s Day is the day of love! Let's be intentional about spreading love and blessings.

We know many of you will be spending Valentine's Day with your families, so we wanted to share a few of our favorite healthy Valentine's Day recipes with you all! We guarantee these will satisfy your sweet tooth just as well as that box of Russell Stover — but without compromising your nutrition goals! These are treats you can feel good about, because  they will not only make your taste buds happy but make your body happy as well. 

If you DO have precious kiddos that are going to be receiving Valentine's bags from school, taking cards and expecting a small treat from Mom and Dad, this is the perfect opportunity to practice non-food rewards for your kids! Instead of loading them up with bags of candy, make Valentine's Day fun in other ways!

5 Ways to Have a Healthy Valentine’s Day

1. Make a Valentine's celebration breakfast! Make some fun Strawberry Love Parfaits to start your day with a sweet, healthy breakfast that tastes like a treat! Take some time to say 5 reasons why you love each other as you eat your breakfast. 

2. Celebrate with non-food items! If you're sending your kids to school with Valentines, try sending cards along with temporary tattoos, stickers, pencils or other fun little toys instead of candy. Be sure to emphasize that these are things they can enjoy over and over, instead of just once! If you're a college student, get together with some friends and make Valentines together! Get crafty and make fun, homemade cards with markers, watercolors, etc.

3. Spread out the sweets! Naturally, we're all going to eat some sweet treats on Valentine's Day. However, all of these treats don't have to be eaten on this one day! Pick 1-2 of your top choices for today, and then put the rest away to enjoy in moderation for days to come. The longer you spread it out, the more times you get to enjoy the treats! 

4. Try a new, healthy recipe! Below you will find several of our most favorite healthy and easy sweet treats! Try making these for you and your family, friends or significant other! 

5. Celebrate with red foods! See how many delicious and nutritious red foods you can put into your diet that day! Maybe try strawberries on a spinach salad for lunch, our beet and red onion side dish for a romantic dinner (recipe below), Tomato Tulips as an appetizer (just cut a plus sign on the top of a cherry tomato, fill with cottage cheese, then use chives as the stems) or Share the Love rice krispie treats (recipe below)

Happy 2nd Birthday TransFit Community!

We are so excited to celebrate with you all this week TransFit's 2nd Birthday!  We celebrate every clients and friend that has been apart of TransFit this week for together we all are transforming the community! Each one of YOU has filled this place with encouragement and hard work, as we have accomplished goals and inspired one another to live transformed!  

CAS_3193-2.jpg

TransFit (Transformational Fitness) was birthed out of my basement gym in Athens, GA when I was called to transform women from the inside out and become a personal trainer. I came to the realization that exercise is worship! Today, TransFit is a full service personal training studio  designed to help women live their BEST lives by becoming transformed in every area of life- body, mind and spirit. That is where our foundational verse and mantra comes from - "Do not conform to the patterns of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" Romans 12:2

CAS_3195-2.jpg

We are going to celebrate TransFit's Birthday all week! Giveaway's, munchies,  merchandise sales, laughter, and of course amazing workouts will be ready for you! 

We want to thank each of you for your support, encouragement, and prayers for TransFit! The Lord has provided amazing gifts for us this past year and we look forward to what He will do in the years to come! We are thrilled to celebrate with you! 

Blessings, 

Team TransFit

Merry Christmas from Team TransFit!

Merry Christmas! 

WOW! When we reflect back on an amazing 2017 -we are overwhelmed with joy! We are humbled beyond words for all that God has done through TransFit in 2017. You amazing women inspire our entire TransFit Team to live fully for Christ everyday. Each one of you holds such a special place in our hearts and getting to know you more has been the best gift this year!

We are so grateful for all of you who have supported TransFit!  God is  working and transforming lives in this community.

Anything is possible - no dream is too big! TransFit has become an awesome community of women who can help each other change lives -- one hour, one day at time by living the truth in Proverbs 16:3:

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans."

Our entire team says "Thank you" for a great year here at TransFit! We are so blessed by the love, support, and prayers from each of you. Today, we want to reflect on the true reason for the season. The Lord sent His son to Earth for each of us! May we look to Him, during this season and celebrate  what He has done in each of our lives. 

"She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." Matthew 1:21
