Advent Calendar of Good Deeds

This year our family has opted for something different from the typical Advent calendar.  In order to get our minds & hearts focused on the true spirit of the season, we are doing good deeds each day!

Some are as simple as giving a smile to everyone you see or holding open a door.  Others are more involved, like making cards for nursing home patience or baking cookies for local law enforcement.

The good deeds don't need to be grand, they simply need to come from the heart.

To keep the deeds for each day a secret I wrote them on little pieces of paper & hung them on this little "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree.  Each morning the kids read their good deed for the day as they eat their breakfast.

In addition to our preparations for Christmas I am reading a daily Advent devotion & a section I read the other day really spoke to the lifestyle that I strive to live & share.  It spoke of preparing yourself mentally, spiritually, & physically for the coming of Christ. 
*Treat your body with respect - exercise regularly & nourish yourself with healthy foods.  Don't get sucked into perpetual overindulging on rich foods & alcohol.
*Focus on giving & what you can do to help others now & throughout the year.
*Avoid overspending on gifts - keep it simple, focus more on experiences & spending time together as a family rather than things.
Have a blessed & healthy Advent season.

The Masters Hammer & Chisel Fit Mommas Test Group

So I'll admit it....the picture above has been photoshopped.  Hahahaha... 
I may not have the body of trainer Autumn Calabrese now, but a girl has got to have goals!  My motto for the next to months is "Moms can get chiseled too!"  So who wants to join me?
Today is the day!  The launch of Beachbody's newest strength & resistance training workout - The Masters Hammer & Chisel! 
This is the first time these two power house trainers, Sagi Kalev & Autumn Calabrese, have teamed up for body sculpting, toning, & tightening workouts. 
If you loved the 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, or Body Beast this program will be right up your alley.  The Masters Hammer & Chisel focuses on a flexible, clean eating nutrition plan with a focus on proper portion sizes.  You even get color coded containers with your order to help you stick to proper portion sizes.  This program has 12 new workouts that are all only 30-40 minutes in length & can all be done in your home with minimal equipment needed.
Necessary equipment:
*a few dumbbells
*a weight bench OR stability ball
*a chin up bar OR door attachment with a resistance band
In each workout there are modifications shown for those working with limited equipment or who need to use a lower intensity, so you do not have to have a full gym of weights & equipment to make this program work for you.
In addition to all the tools you will receive in your challenge pack, I will plug you into a private online accountability group to keep you motivated, focused, & on track to get "chiseled" this December & January.
I provide weekly meal plan suggestions, healthy recipes, daily support, motivation, tips, & activities to keep this journey fun!  Having a community of positive support will help you get an amazing jumpstart on  your 2016 resolutions & get you into healthy habits for the long-run.
Hammer & Chisel Fit Mommas Test Group requirements:
*I must be your assigned Team Beachbody coach. 
*You must purchase a Hammer & Chisel Challenge Pack.
This includes your complete workout program, nutrition guide, portion control containers, &
a 30 day supply of Shakeology
