Hammer and Chisel RESULTS

Its easy to focus on the scale but I will be the first to say if that was my main focus I would have quit a long time ago.
2016-01-27 06.38.56
I looked it a few different ways.
I challenged my body.
2016-01-26 06.01.36
I tried new things.
I failed forward.
And we celebrated the small successes along the way!
2016-01-29 06.05.26
Yes, I’ll be up front and share that GAINED 3 pounds on this program. Did I want to gain 3 pounds? Nope, not exactly. But let’s be real here…muscle is dense my friends! When you build muscle and cut the fat that number may be a bit higher!! Besides – my hubby is enjoying the 3 pound gain and solid booty and it is my role to keep him happy right?!
After some reinforcement from my hubby – I did learn to switch my focus to the other gains.
I gained stregnth, endurance, balance, discipline and 60 early morning dates with my hubby.
Hammer and Chisel 60 Day results
I have flaws. I have room for improvement but my goodness this body carried and delivered two beautiful babies.
My nutrition was far from perfect (I am such a cookie monster!!!) and I know I let my travels and other things set me back but hey – progress is progress right!!!
I am healthy and I just completed a 60 day RIGOROUS training program. I am proud!
These other gains, my friends, far outweigh the scale increase any day!
Besides, having a program to complete TOGETHER with my husband was so much fun and a huge key to my success (yes, I am calling my 3 pound weight gain a success).
2016-01-20 03.17.11
Not only did I have my incredible hubby cheering me on daily but my challengers kept me in tune and in CHECK! I know I couldn’t have done it with out them all!!!
But the fitness journey has no end destination!
Its full Cruise*Countdown mode in our house as we prepare for a journey to the Caribbean on a trip we earned through Beachbody – We are not stopping here!

We survived the HOLIDAYS – 30 day Hammer & Chisel results!

My husband and I are 4.5 weeks into Hammer and Chisel and all I can say is WE DID IT!!!!

Hammer and chisel week 5 balance

With the new release of the workout program The Masters: Hammer & Chisel on December 1st I was beyond tempted to “start in the new year”…however my very excited hubby said he was ready for a change and ready to go and since I am all too familiar with the power of an accountability partner, I couldn’t let him go at it alone!!!

Hammer & Chisel week 5 clean roast

A very simple clean, crockpot roast

So we decided we would start, do the best we could but still enjoy the holidays…aka EAT THE COOKIES, enjoy the parties and control the controllable!
And through 5 birthday parties, countless holiday get togethers, NYE and all that in between I am happy to say WE MADE IT!

 

 

 

Hammer and Chisel 30 day results

Am I where I want to be?!

Well, no, not exactly.

But am happy with the progress?

Absolutely!

Even though I gained 2 pounds I lost 2 inches – which goes to show you this program can help you gain LEAN muscle!

I have been using the Beachbody Performance LineENERGIZE (pre workout) and RECOVER (post workout) daily which have been KEY in helping me get the most of out each workout and reduce muscle soreness. In addition I haven’t missed a day of my SHAKEOLOGY! Nutrition is key and while the holiday indulgences were there Shakeology played a huge role in making sure they didn’t get out of control, especially during the baking days!!!  For less than $4/meal you can’t beat that dense superfood nutrition!!!

The workouts are challenging and I KNOW the incredible results are coming but in all honesty – my nutrition wasn’t where it needs to be to get jaw-dropping results – but to make progress at a time when most Americans are gaining 7-10 pounds – I’LL TAKE IT!!!

I am getting stronger. My weights have increased and the 12 pounders that were collecting dust are now being tossed around with ease. One simple non-scale victory that helps reassure me – THIS PROGRAM IS WORKING!!!

Hammer & Chisel week 5 New Years Day And while the holidays are over our busy lives are here to stay. As I look forward to the second half of this program I see our upcoming Beachbody weekend in the ‘Burgh – an entire weekend away from home and then two weeks later I’ll be off to LA for a Leadership conference.

Life is busy. But you can always CONTROL the CONTROLLABLE.

*Plan ahead*

*Pack snacks*

*Prioritize your workouts and your health*

*Toss the excuses*

*Start each day with a fresh mind and clean slate*

**You can achieve great things. Believe YOU CAN and you WILL**

Holiday Survival Tips

If you’ve been following my Hammer & Chisel journey you may have noticed that week 3 kicked off with SEVERAL planned meals out – I mean its the holidays – tis the season right?!?!

Of course – but that doesn’t mean you can’t make some progress along the way too!!!

Hammer & Chisel week 4 the secret is getting started

We have had some holiday celebrations, my dad’s birthday dinner and just some time out with friends and family! But here’s the deal – I do believe you can have your cake and eat it too!

Each day I’ve been “picking my splurge” whether its the meal or dessert I pick one and do my best on the other options. I have found making that healthier choice doesn’t leave me feeling deprived but rather proud that I am doing something to better myself!

Hammer & Chisel week 4 meal prep

We even had a day date christmas shopping trip in the mix and at the suggestion of my hubs we packed all our meals – yup – snack 1, lunch and snack 2. Mancake bake, grilled asparagus and salmon burgers, some fruit, shakeo and plenty to drink! Hydration is key!!!

Hammer & chisel week 4 eating on the go

And in between running from place to place we would sneak in those meals, fuel up and get on our way! I tend to get HANGRY while shopping and often don’t want to take the time out to eat when I’m on a mission and this made it work out for everyone involved!!!

My sis came to visit which gave me that much more of a REASON – not an EXCUSE to stay on track – we simply made it something we would do TOGETHER! Family fitness is just one of the many things that fills my cup — I think she’s hooked for sure!

The holiday season is tough – don’t get me wrong. And the temptations are everywhere but not impossible to survive by any means!!!

Week 2 of Hammer & Chisel

Hammer and CHisel week 2 - if you want something you've never had

It has arrived!!!

Ok wait – so I JUST got the package YET – I’m in week 2?! Heck yes!

I’ve actually been doing the H&C workouts through the on demand feature of the Team Beachbody Premium Club membership. Basically its like netflix for the fitness world and while I had everything I needed to do the program – there’s just something to be said about flipping the pages of the nutrition guide and hanging that 60 day calendar on the basement walls!!!
Hammer and Chisel week 2 whats in the package
So what came in the box?!?!

I opted for the The Masters Hammer and Chisel Deluxe DVD Package:

We did already have containers and shaker cups and a medicine ball but since my husband and I are doing this TOGETHER – we wanted to make sure we had enough of EVERYTHING!

Hammer & Chisel Meal plan week of 12_14_Maegan - EDITED

You’ll see from my meal plan above – I am adding in: Energize (pre workout), Energize (post workout) and Recharge (overnight) from the Team Beachbody Performance Line. This is an intense program and I am looking to get max results and I know these will help me get there! I am not nearly as sore this week as I was in week 1 and far less than I anticipated – I know these vitamin packed supplements are helping on that road to recovery!!!

My hubs is also adding in the Hydrate during his workouts and creatine! 

Note the difference in the meal plans – He falls into the second highest and I fall into the lowest – so how do we make it work? Plan it out!

These are literally printed and hanging in the pantry – we tag team the shopping, the chopping and the cooking. Don’t get me wrong…it takes TIME but its worth it.

Hammer & Chisel meal plan week of 12_14 KYLE EDITED

We both agree this program is hard but its fun and in the running to become our favorite one yet!

choose your hard - Hammer and chisel week 2.jpg

And while it is challenging and there are days we don’t want to wake up in the morning but we DO IT ANYWAY. We do it for ourselves – our health – and our family!

My mom even joined in for a 5:00am workout while visiting last week! 

Age really is just a number!!

My 2 cents on the new Hammer & Chisel program

People keep asking me about my thoughts on hammer & chisel and how it compares to other programs and all I can say is this is one of its own!

I had been hooked on the 21-day fix ever since its release back in February 2014 and I bounced around between various other programs but I found myself simply going through the motions without matching it with effort.

I needed a change – I needed a CHAlleNGE!

Hammer and Chisel week 1 day 7

This program is challenging yet possible.

It makes me push myself every day but leaves me with the most amazing sense of accomplishment.

It’s a program my husband and I can do-together-with customized results driven by the nutrition plan.

Its very unique moves combine multiple muscle groups to get you RESULTS – faster.

Whether you’re:

Looking for a good challenge

OR

a program you can do with your spouse

OR

A way to stay active through these winter months without battling the gym scene and commute

OR

Hammer & Chisel week 1 day 6You just need to switch up your normal routine

This may be for you!

Don’t bet me wrong – these workouts aren’t easy – they make you push your limits but I promise you great things happen outside of your comfort zone!

Next challenge group is forming NOW!

You will get online, daily accountability, tips, motivation, ideas, MEAL PLANS (which I know you all love to create!!!), recipes and heck – even a chance to win $500 or at least some new gear!

Hammer & Chisel Week 1

Here…we…goooooo!!!!

After a much anticipated wait and wonderful technology (aka our little netflix for home workouts!) my husband and I have kicked off our new workout program – and we’re doing it together!

Hammer & Chisel was released December 1st but with the Club Membership and On Demand feature we had access to the workouts by Thursday, December 3rd through our accounts and quite honestly – just couldn’t wait!!! Besides who needs a new week or new month to work towards those goals!? We were ready so we went for it!

Hammer & Chisel Week 1 Day 1

Yes – I. AM. SORE! But…I have an overhwelming sense of accomplishment. These workouts are HARD – don’t get me wrong. But if you enjoy a challenge, if you enjoy throwing that iron around and/or if you’re looking for a program you and your significant other can do TOGETHER then this may be the program for you!

As I sat down to meal plan today I actually realized our mid-week start totally set us up. The schedule outlines 3 days on – rest – 3 more workout days. So our Thursday start gives us a Sunday rest day which I feel is PERFECT to recoup, rest and reflect on the week before as we prepare for the week ahead!

Hammer & Chisel week 1 day 3

So while this is our first FULL week – we are actually on Day 4 – rest day – TODAY and I am taking my Sunday to PREPARE!

You know what they say:

“Failing to plan is like Planning to Fail”

The meal plan is pretty similar to the 21-day fix and fix extreme plans I have done in the past but very different for my hubby compared to his prior Body Best!

THE WAY IT WORKS:

You do a calculation based on your weight, activity level and goals – and you get a “plan” to follow. This plan will tell you how many portions of each food group/container you get and then the hard work sets in – PLANNING IT OUT!

Here are our weekly plans:

Hammer & Chisel meal plan week 1.

Hammer & Chisel meal plan week 1 edited

As you can see – we will be eating very similar foods but in very different portions. I have two commitments this week which are on my calendar and I will plan and act accordingly! Yes – I have goals and yes its the holiday season and Yes – its all about the balance!!

I fell in the 1200-1500 range giving me: 3 REDS, 2 YELLOWS, 2 PURPLES, 3 GREENS, 1 ORANGE and 1 BLUE.

My husband falls in the 3000-3299 range giving him: He gets 8 REDS, 8 YELLOWS, 5 PURPLES, 9 GREENS, 1 ORANGE and 1 BLUE.

And that plan means nothing unless you PREP – here’s what our fridge looks like at the start of week 1:

Hammer and chisel week 1 meal prep.jpg

One thing I am adding this round is more of the PERFORMANCE LINE supplements.

I have been using the pre-wrokout ENERGIZE from Beachbody’s Performance Line for a few months and love it…it gives me that nice little energy boost to power through my early morning workouts but doesn’t leave me jittery or anything!! And I had never really felt the need to add in anything else…until now…

2015-08-01 08.54.34

You can read more about the FULL PERFORMANCE LINE HERE – but for the time being I am going to add in the post-workout Recover to speed up muscle recovery and combat this  exercise-induced muscle soreness! These workouts are a change – they are a challenge -and I fully expect to feel the pain a bit – but that doesn’t mean I have to go about each day barely being able to walk or touch my toes!!!

This line helps your body recover and recoup after training and I can already feel the impact in just the first 3 days.

Jello legs post workout where I am so fatigued yet the pain the next day is not at all what I would expect and I know the performance line is making all the difference in the world!

2015-08-26 06.37.28

I am also going to add the Nightime recharge in the evening to support over night muscle recovery.

And as we began prepping today I can tell you – this is A LOT of food! And its beyond A LOT of food for my  husband but these programs are tried and true – I know that if I follow the program the results will follow!!!
