The Best Butt Lifting Program - Master's Hammer and Chisel Review

I've not done an update lately on what I'm doing to keep myself in shape so here it is!!  Back in December, I started doing the new program The Master's Hammer and Chisel.  It quickly became my FAVORITE workout!  I have really fallen in love with lifting weights!  (Major shocker for me...I was always a cardio junkie).

I've now started my 2nd round of Hammer and Chisel and I'm now on week 4 of my second round.  The first round I finished with results that I was proud of, they weren't stellar, but neither was my complete consistency in my nutrition (I  know this makes a HUGE difference in results).  However I will share with you that this program has done THE MOST for reshaping my body and I fully believe that it's because it's more lifting weights than I've done before!

Here's one of my favorite set of moves in one of the workouts!  It's definitely challenging, but so worth the challenge as you see yourself improving and getting better!!

My first round of the 60 day program, I lost about 2.5 lbs and 4 inches.  Now...this is not over the top results.  BUT...the biggest difference is the SHAPE of my body, the way my clothes fit, my BUTT is finally becoming lifted (seriously, that's a pretty sweet thing!), and I'm definitely more confident in my clothes and bathing suit!

So...let me repeat!  This is THE BEST program that I've found that will LIFT YOUR BUTT!!  And no...you don't have to be 20 for this to happen.  I'm 35 years old and have seen such a difference in that area!!  Hands down, my favorite program for toning your backside!

Hammer and Chisel Women's Results - From Cardio Junkie to Loving Lifting Weights, www.HealthyFitFocused.com, Julie Little Fitness

SO...starting the 2nd round of Hammer and Chisel, my goal is to increase my weights and really push myself.  Now, I'll be the first to admit that my consistency in this program has come from my workouts...honestly, my nutrition has NOT been as consistent while on this program (one reason I'm finally doing an update here...to keep me accountable).  Even in the first 3 weeks of my 2nd round I've not been as consistent in following a meal plan for the program!

Like I say to my challengers, IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN, YOU PLAN TO FAIL!  It's so true (from first hand experience for sure!).

It's a NEW week and it's never too late for a refresh!  Today marks the time where I'm committing to the nutrition plan along with my consistency that I've already proven in my workouts.  For whatever reason, I've resisted sticking to a nutrition plan during the workout!  Well...no more!  It's GO TIME!!

One reason I'm doing this program is to really challenge my body...but I have to fully commit to both aspects, nutrition and fitness!  So, what is the best way to do that??  By creating a meal plan and sticking to it this week!!  So here's what I'm doing!

So...I'm committing, right here - right now...to both the nutrition and fitness aspects of the Hammer and Chisel!  I'm excited to see the results!!

Are you looking to change your body and really see what it's capable of?  Maybe you're looking to add some weight lifting to your routine?  Or...maybe you would just like to have a lifted and toned BUTT??  If you're looking for a change and want to join me in the Master's Hammer and Chisel Journey, I'd love to support you in your journey!

21 day fix containers
1 Red, 1 Green, 1 Yellow, 1 Blue, 1/4 Purple
One serving size equals 1/4 of the dish. Happy Eating! :)
Substitution alternatives - Ground turkey/ Ground Beef and Brown Rice/Quinoa
*1 cup uncooked brown rice is about equal to 2 cups of cooked rice --
1 yellow container is roughly 1/2 cup. If following the 21 Day Fix, measure out 4 yellows of cooked rice to add to the meat mixture to make sure it's an accurate container count.

If you would like some detailed information on "What is Clean Eating" click HERE! This will give you some background on what it is!

Free Clean Eating Challenge

You are INVITED to join me for a FREE 
5 Day Spring Clean Your Eating Challenge!! 

I've been eating clean for about 3 years now.  Before I started eating clean, I thought I was pretty healthy...until I started to dig into clean eating a bit more and realized that some of the foods I thought were "healthy" really were not!  Now, I have more energy, I find that I can eat MORE food because of the choices I make when eating clean. It has changed the way I feel about food and the way my body feels. I notice when I have a cheat meal, or something my body is not used to, my body lets me know!! 

Free Clean Eating Challenge

Have you ever noticed that the foods you eat have a direct impact on how you feel?

If you have ever wondered what clean eating is all about then this group is perfect for you!

Starting on April 4th we will be doing some SPRING CLEANING on your eating!!  Are you ready???
