Hammer and Chisel | Complete

It’s been a while since I’ve had the time to write a post. A lot has been going on and a lot is changing these past few weeks. It’s strange how the universe knows you’re happy so it mixes everything up so you can’t relax.

I have been struggling to stay on target with my workouts since the end of Hammer and Chisel, and I decided to start a 21 day fix extreme and hammer and chisel hybrid 4 week training. But right after my start date for the new program, I was faced with a challenge of finding a new place to live.

I’m struggling to find the motivation to get out of bed in the morning and I’m worried sick most of each day, about what’s going to happen to me now, but things are finally looking positive.

It will be a struggle but I’ve found a new home and I’m ready to take this challenge head on.

I can’t wait to be settled and get my workouts and eating back on track.

Here are my before and after pictures from Hammer and Chisel. Not exactly the complete result I was looking for, but I can only blame that on my diet. Here’s to another round in the future and for never giving up!!!!

Last Week | Hammer and Chisel

This is my last week of the 60 day program Hammer and Chisel. 

I have overcome some great hurdles during the past few weeks and I’m amazed at how much my body has changed with this program. 

I can do burpee’s without stopping and adding the jump, I can hold a plank on a medicine ball, push-ups using a medicine ball and do endless deep squats. All of these I never thought I’d be able to do. I’ve always wished I could but never knew how to get there. 

Hammer and Chisel has taught me a lot about my body and how to lift weights. I always wanted to be a fitness girl but I never knew how to get there. 

I’m so happy I did this program and I can’t wait for next week to begin a hybrid of hammer and chisel and 21 day fix extreme!

Mind Over Matter | Accountability Group

Back in March I joined my first accountability group and it changed my life. I do not regret the decision I made to join Amy and the Beachbody team. It helped me stay focused on changing my lifestyle and now I’m finally reaching my fitness goals. 

I’m starting my first 21 day accountability group on June 6th and I’m looking for people, who want to make changes to their lifestyle and are looking for some accountability, to join!

Please contact me for more info!

Mind Over Matter | 21 Day Accountability Group

Please join me in participating in my first ever accountability group hosted by me, myself and I!

Before & After | 21 Day Fix Extreme


I wanted to share my progress so far since I’m moving on to the new program tomorrow. 

The before picture is from before I started my journey with BeachBody and the after is a current picture from today. ๐Ÿ˜Š
The pictures don’t show all of my results. I feel so much better than I did before and I have far more definition in my stomach than what’s shown above. 

I can’t wait to see the results after the next 60 days! ๐Ÿ’•

Life, Love and Happiness ๐Ÿ’•

I’ve taken a moment to step back from my fitness journey and live life to the fullest, but now I’m back, running full speed ahead. The journey I’ve started with BeachBody is absolutely wonderful and I love every minute of it, but sometimes you need to take life’s opportunities and run with them. I never stopped completely, just took a moment to slow down and breathe… And I have to say it was awesome and I have no regrets. I was able to explore new areas, visit some old places, that I hold dear to my heart, and just overall relax.

I’ve come a long way with embracing my healthier lifestyle and the changes I’ve made stuck with me this time, yes I did splurg every now and then, but I never went crazy as I have in the past. For the first time in my life, I feel as if I’m building a healthy habit and I’m loving every minute of the journey.
I’ve jumped back into the extreme and I don’t feel as if I’ve skipped a beat! The 21 day fix and the 21 day fix extreme are killer workouts that prepare you for anything live throws your way. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ’•

My Love for Coffee | Coffee Toffee and Fitness

I bet people are wondering why the blog is called Coffee Toffee and Fitness and well for those of you who don’t know me… I really love my coffee and I can’t go a day without it.

Just the other day, I went without coffee until 2 pm. At 1 pm I could feel the dreaded withdrawl headache starting. Caffeine is a serious drug… and a really hard habbit to kick.

I’m not the type who likes starbucks, though I’ll drink it when it’s the only thing around, I definitely prefer Peet’s over anything else. 

My love for coffee all started when I found myself commuting 1 1/2 – 2 hours to work every morning. Thank you LA traffic! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ And my need and love for coffee has not fallen since, it’s very rare to find me without a cup of joe in my hand. ๐Ÿ™‚

Porto’s iced coffee is also rather delicious, and it’s a very nice treat to have when I’m up in Burbank. I really don’t want to know what goes into making it so delicious though… :0

Sunday, Meal Prep Day

Yesterday, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen. Meal prep isn’t the easiest thing to do, but it’s so worth it in the end. I love having meals ready immediantly when I want them. Helps me stay on target and not reach for the easy junk food.

I made Curried Chicken and Dijon Mustard Chicken Salad. ๐Ÿ™‚ Recipies below if you’re interested.
