I have worked out with Karina for several years. She is a fantastic trainer. She has incredible knowledge of the body and how it works and pays attention to you as an individual. She knows when to push you to do a little more and when to stop - and she is fun! I highly recommend her!
The Juice Box roll out to Karina Cross at Forever Fit was so much fun! Thanks Karina and Christin for hosting us!

So, How Do I Get The Perfect Physique?

I am pretty fit and strong......people ask me all the time "How Long did it take for you to get fit?"
To get the perfect body? Well, you won't like the answer... MY WHOLE LIFE!!!... So about 40 years.😲

Today’s society sells you what you want to hear... The 21 day challenges...“secret programs, hacks & inside scoops” to gaining strength, hitting that next PR or sculpting that perfect physique or the no-work/easy multi-level marketing diets and programs. In reality, none of these are found overnight. There is NO ULTIMATE 8-week program that will bring you to elite status or make all your lifting dreams come true. But that’s not what you want to hear. It’s not sexy & telling you that true strength is built on top of consistent hard work day in and day out for YEARS doesn’t sell...but it’s true.😳

True strength isn’t built over a few weeks, a few months or even a few years. It’s when consistency & hard work meet and are cultivated over YEARS ... that’s where the magic happens.🏋🏼‍♂️ And Why Karina is talking about strength and not losing weight and muscle tone? Well, my dear human friends....I will tell you this one more time: BECAUSE THE KEY IS INTENSITY! And what is intensity? Can you guess? YES!...It's weight!!!.. Of course, we can count reps, sets and rest as intensity as well...
Set short term & long term goals. Stay consistent & learn to love THE PROCESS of working towards your goals.🙌🏼 YOU'RE WORTH IT..... Keep going

It’s Foodie Friday and it’s Fall Y’all! You know I love incorporating in-season produce in my meals. For everything there is a season, and this season (month) is all about butternut squash. Butternut squash is rich in important vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting antioxidants. This low-calorie, fiber-rich winter squash may help you lose weight and protect against conditions like cancer, heart disease, and mental decline. Serve this soup along side a roasted chicken or make it a special night and enjoy a lean steak with it. This recipe is super creamy (yet cream-less) and full of delicious butternut flavor. Leftover soup tastes even better the next day. A serving of this soup will add only 150 calories to your meal, so you can fit it in nicely as you add up your total daily calories.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
Author: Cookie and Kate
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 55 mins
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Yield: 4 bowls or 6 cups

INGREDIENTS

1 large butternut squash (about 3 pounds), halved vertically* and seeds removed
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1/2 cup chopped shallot (about 1 large shallot bulb)
1 teaspoon salt
4 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3 to 4 cups (24 to 32 ounces) vegetable broth, as needed
1 to 2 tablespoons butter, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the butternut squash on the pan and drizzle each half with just enough olive oil to lightly coat the squash on the inside (about 1/2 teaspoon each). Rub the oil over the inside of the squash and sprinkle it with salt and pepper.

Turn the squash face down and roast until it is tender and completely cooked through, about 40 to 50 minutes (don’t worry if the skin or flesh browns—that’s good for flavor). Set the squash aside until it’s cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large soup pot, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat until shimmering (if your blender has a soup preset, use a medium skillet to minimize dishes.) Add the chopped shallot and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring often, until the shallot has softened and is starting to turn golden on the edges, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute, stirring frequently. Transfer the contents to your stand blender.

Use a large spoon to scoop the butternut squash flesh into your blender. Discard the tough skin. Add the maple syrup, nutmeg and a few twists of freshly ground black pepper to the blender. Pour in 3 cups vegetable broth, being careful not to fill the container past the maximum fill line (you can work in batches if necessary, and stir in any remaining broth later).

Securely fasten the lid. Blend on high (or select the soup preset, if available), being careful to avoid hot steam escaping from the lid. Stop once your soup is ultra creamy and warmed through.

If you would like to thin out your soup a bit more, stir in the remaining cup of broth. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil, to taste, and blend well. Taste and stir in more salt and pepper, if necessary.

If your soup is piping hot from the blending process, you can pour it into serving bowls. If not, pour it back into your soup pot and warm the soup over medium heat, stirring often, until it’s nice and steamy. I like to top individual bowls with some extra black pepper.
