Hammer and Chisel - Week 3

The Master's Hammer and Chisel week 3

Another week of Hammer and Chisel is in the books - I can hardly believe it!

This week I saw the return of a bunch of workouts (Total Body Hammer, Chisel Agility, Max Hammer Strength, Hammer Plyometrics and Iso Strength Chisel) plus one new-to-me workout (Total Body Chisel) I realized once I started doing the workout, it was actually the one that I tried when the sneak preview opened up in October and was MUCH harder with a bench and heavier weights. I love the variety in this workout - you never really know what to expect and some workouts you don't see again for more than 2 weeks so it feels totally fresh!


With the support of our January accountability group, I was practicing the positive mantra 'I am strong' all week, which was incredibly positive. I had this posted on my mirror for the week as a reminder when I was lifting heavier weights and really pushing myself.

During Max Hammer Strength this week, I busted out the 25 lbs weight for the sumo squats and deadlifts - it felt awesome!

I was up early on Saturday for some plyo with Sagi, and was reminded of the craziness of the in and out jumps

That is one move that didn't get particularly easier -- maybe my breathing wasn't AS heavy as the first time!?

Annnnd I stuck with the containers once again - I loved my flexible meal plan!

Shakeology in the snow

Thankful for superfoods on the go. I just ran out of my Shakeology earlier this week and was asking Corbin to borrow a couple of scoops from him until my next shipment arrives!

My meal plan this week includes: apple banana muffins, taco salad, minestrone soup and stuffed bell peppers - yum! I've been enjoying making my way through the Fixate cookbook and trying out a bunch of new stuff alongside old favourites. I've been saving lots of money by packing almost all of my meals and the meal plan has been encouraging me to really fuel my body with 3-4 solid meals plus 2-3 snacks each day.

Week 4 - let's go!!
