What to do with 1/4 cup of “any nut” on the 6-week Pro-TF Fitness challenge

This first week on the Pro-TF Fitness 6-week challenge, we’ve been working out 3 mornings and sticking to a specific eating plan.

One of the things that are on that nutrition plan every day is a portion of something from the “fat” list. And one of the items in the list is 1/4 cup of “any nut.”

For this item, we’ve come up with a recipe we would like to share:

In a sandwich size ziplock bag mix:

  • 1/4 “any” nut -> we used peanuts
  • 1 tsp pico de gallo powder
  • 1 tsp lime or lemon juice
  • optional: cayenne pepper, to taste, if you want to add some heat

Make sure it’s all mixed well inside the bag. For best results, let it “marinate” for 1-3 hours.

Pro-TF Fitness 6-Week Challenge

So, on Saturday, we started on the Pro-TF Fitness 6-Week Challenge. It’s basically a boot camp to help us plan out our meals and eat a specific diet for our weight loss goals, and of course, lose some weight and volume. Did I mention there’s exercise involved?

On Saturday, we had our orientation, took our “before” photos, and got out weight, height and BMI measured. This is to have a starting point so we can measure progress. The main advantage of going through this challenge with Pro-TF Fitness is that we were also assigned an accountability coach. Accountability seems to be what Pro-TF Fitness is best at, apart from employing very knowledgeable and fun coaches, and the lack thereof appears to be why so many other programs have failed for us in the past.

As I am writing this post, I am having trouble standing up… So, there are daily workout programs that are taught by several different coaches throughout the day and week. We have so far completed two. Here’s the workout plan for the week:

  • Monday: “No Mercy Monday”
  • Tuesday: “TNTuesday”
  • Wednesday: “Legendary Legs Day”
  • Thursday: “Butts and Guts”
  • Friday: “Furious Friday”
  • Saturday: “Sexy Saturday”

Also, as I am writing this, my stomach muscles are still sore from No Mercy Monday – I’m told that it’s the “upper body” day.

Feeling the soreness is not great but it’s good to know and to show me how much I really needed this. I hope that after 6 weeks (better less), I’ll be feeling much better and less sore.

Pro-TF Fitness is also a community where everyone is there to help everyone else succeed, which is really cool, and also acts a lot like a family. We love giving each other high fives!

If this sounds like something you would be interested in too, let us know, using the comment section below or the contact form, or whichever way you generally get in touch with us. You can also reach out to Pro-TF Fitness directly through their Facebook page and learn more about the 6-week challenge. Make sure you tell them you heard about it from us so we can score some extra brownie points 🙂
