Hammer and Chisel RESULTS!!!!!!

ALRIGHTY FRIENDS~~~ Most of you who follow me on Facebook or on IG already have seen my Hammer and Chisel results, but I'd like to announce them on here formally, and chat a little bit about the experience!


What is The Master's Hammer and Chisel? WELL~ it was an 8 week program with 2 master trainers (something Beachbody has never done before!!), and it incorporated light weights, medium weights, heavy weights, and just pure body weight!!!  It was simply amazing!  Within the first week I saw results, and began to feel STRONGER!!  I do not, however, recommend this program to anyone who has yet to complete either 21 Day Fix or 21 Day Fix Extreme... because well.. there were many moves I wouldn't have had proper form with, etc. had I not learned them before!

This all being said, let's take a glimpse into what happened over the last 60 days!!!!!!

DAY 1!!!!
Matt and I go through Chisel Balance (day #1 workout) with a bang.. it was hard, but it was worth it!!! I have no idea how we just kept going, but we did!! ESPECIALLY AFTER INDULGING OVER THE HOLIDAYS!!!  We both put on 3-5 lbs. from the 23rd of December until January 4th!! EKKK!!! I could already tell that the nutrition factor was going to be SO important, so hard, but so worth it......

We did switch our rest day to Friday on most weeks just because it seemed better at the time.. Towards the end, I ended up placing it back where it went.. Why?? WELL.. because the days are all set out where they are FOR A REASON.. and I found the reason out quickly...  Let's see some snap shots from the last 8 weeks....

TRAIN LIKE A BEAST! <3

Those photos are in NO particular order, just some of my favorite moments, although I have SO many favorite moments!  Within the first week of H&C I had already noticed a change!!!!

HOW CRAZY?!?!

I honestly couldn't believe that in only 7 DAYS of doing these high intensity workouts, and eating right, my body was CHANGING!! How high intensity? O.k... They're not THAT BAD~ just a mixture of low rep, high weight, high rep, low weight, kinda thing!!! !!! Here's a little peak!! <3 <3




I hope those give you a little insight to the type of workouts I did over the course of 8 weeks!!!  I also incorporated a bonus workout of abs at least 2-3x a weeks, and a bonus leg or glute workout about once weekly.

When I started The Master's Hammer and Chisel, I was barely using 12 pound weights, I end finishing H&C using 15s and 20s for 90% of the moves!!!  I couldn't believe that I was benching 20 pound free weights and doing cleans with them as well... SPEAKING OF~ CLEANS?! WHAT ?! I didn't even know that was such a thing!!!! LOL!!!! But for real... I learned SO much with Hammer and Chisel, and my body is grateful for the knowledge and experience!!!
FOOD IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THIS JOURNEY!!
I'll share this recipe soon!!!! <3 <3 SO GOOD!!
I used ALL of Beachbody's Performance Line during H&C, aside from Creatine (which Matt used)... I REALLY don't think I would've been able to get past day one without it, let alone complete the whole program!!!!! HAHAHA It's AMAZING !!! I recommend reading up on, and investing in it if you're into ANY program and you need energy ever because of it, or if you're every sore!!
LOVE RECOVER<3
ENERGIZE & CUPCAKES!<3
I OBVIOUSLY drank Shakeology every day too!! <3 This year I've dedicated myself to drinking it everyday for all 366 days (Happy Leap YEAR! <3).. Why? Because the CEO, Carl told me to... and I want a really cool Shakeology Shaker cup that tells me how awesome I am!! <3 <3 <3

I had fluctuated in between the weeks, so although I had planned to take pictures and measurements weekly, it didn't work out that way!!! I just took some random Facebook "selfie" pictures, but no real "progress photos" aside from week 1, 30 days, and the end!!  In doing so, I came to realize that my arms got bigger in the sense that they LOST fat, and gained muscle (LOTS OF MUSCLE), but the SIZE of the them actually got smaller!!! The same with my thighs... I felt like they were getting so big in photos... But it was just because I was getting stronger!!! :)

So I lost a total of 6.6 lbs. 3.6% body fat, and 4.75 total inches... As I stated over and over... I wanted to do well eating, and it's SO IMPORTANT.... BUT GUESS WHAT?! I definitely didn't do nearly as well as I has planned to!!! :( #confessionsofafoodaddict !!!!!! I get sad, and I eat, I get mad, and I eat, I'm happy.. and I EAT!!! It's just what I do!! BUT, it's something I'm aware of, and when I'm at my wits-end, I grab an extra shakeo, or a healthy snack!!!! I DO FAIL AT THIS!! I DO!! I'm human, and we're hard creatures to please.. BUT I've worked through it for THIS LONG, and I'll continue to work through it, and MAKE PROGRESS! <3

Matt and I even TRAVELED with The Master's Hammer and Chisel!! We had ZERO EXCUSES to ever miss a workout!!! Matt's mom was also doing the workouts (She's 56!!! HOW AWESOME!!!!!), and since Beachbody on Demand is SO AMAZING, we just brought some weights with us when we went to Virginia, and we had NO EXCUSES!!!! <3 <3 


Working out with Matthew brings us closer together, in fact, we've been on our healthy journey for half of our whole relationship!!! It's definitely brought us a lot closer together, it's what makes us- us...  We're a team when we're coaching, we're a team when were cooking (O.K.. he cleans up!!), and SOMETIMES prepping (heheheh <3 <3), we're a team when we're working out, and we're a team in life, and FOR LIFE!!! I KNOW that I wouldn't have made it through this program, or any of other others, without my rock! <3 <3 


Matt also had some awesome results, although he didn't stick to ANY sort of eating plan!! #MEN... BUT I make him a lunch, so it's controlled... and I make the grocery list, and dinner.. LOL.. so it's all controlled.. it's just the other hours of the day, and the ice cream he likes to have at night heheheh <3 <3 <3 THAT'S OKAY!!!!! <3




I've learned to turn my CAN'TS INTO CANS, AND MY DREAMS INTO PLANS!!! For sure I have!!! <3 <3 <3 I can't imagine not having done this program, and/or not having done it with my side kick!!! I also completed it with a group of my favorite indivuals in a challenge group!! What's a challenge group?
