Hammer and Chisel- Week 1 Review and Meal Plan!

I am totally in love with the new Hammer and Chisel workout program and I am really pumped about sharing my weekly progress and updates! I hope that it helps you along your journey too!

So I just wrapped up my full first week of the program! I am following the schedule how it is laid out, so I have my rest day on Thursdays right now and it really just helps to break up the week and give my body a little break when it needs it most!

Hammer and Chisel is my jam!

I literally just finished my Total Body Hammer and 10 minute ab hammer workout and I am feeling amazing (and sweaty 😉 ), but seriously I can’t even begin to say how happy I am to  have something fresh and new! It is so easy to get bored with the same old routine and I had definitely hit that boredom plateau over the past few months! I had been traveling a lot, being full time mommy and business owner, house responsibilities and you name it- I was doing it! My workouts are my HAPPY place, but no matter how good I feel afterwards- it was getting harder for me to actually push play everyday because I wasn’t excited about it!

ENTER Hammer and Chisel- BEFORE Christmas! Because I am not one to wait until after the holidays to start to get into shape! NO WAY! Exercise is my drug! My happy pill!! AND it burns calories, so i’m not going to pack on a few pounds just to feel blah and have to do extra work after the New Year! This is my lifestyle so I just do it!

AND!!!! My hubby totally surprised me with new Bowflex Selectech weights that I have been wanting for over 2 years!! So- Merry early Christmas to me!!! I’m in love with these babies already!!

Another thing that I am loving with this program is that it is something new everyday! I am working different muscle groups and I tend to get lazy if I am doing the same thing over and over, but not this time! I can feel changes happening already and I love it! 
The meal plan for hammer and chisel is pretty great. It is easy to follow, no counting calories or depriving yourself of foods you love. It is simply all about balance and moderation. I am doing plan B meal plan because my goal is to build lean muscle. I am not on a mission to lose any weight, just continue to tone. So, when I focus on my food I am looking for things that will fuel me and keep me full! The team beachbody website has tracking sheets that you can find under the get Fit tab and then click on tracking sheets. 
Also a tip- don’t drink your calories! I drink mostly water- i stay hydrated and I make it a point to always have a glass of water next to me! it is so important! I tell my chalelngers all the time that they have to hydrate in order for the body to work properly!!! My mission is to always feel great in my own skin and I want to do the same for all of you! 
Do you need some tips on how to stay on track? Check out my video message for my challengers who are in week 2 of our Surviving the Holidays challenge group. 

Do you need some extra motivation to get and stay on track? Check me out at www.facebook.com/valbfitness. I try to post a few times a day on that page! Make sure to LIKE my page too! I would really appreciate it!
Let me say this- I would NOT recommend Hammer and Chisel if you are just starting out in your fitness journey. If you love weights I would check out Chalean Extreme or the 21 Day Fix first! I can help you with that! Just contact me at valbozzo15@gmail.com and we can talk about what is best for you.

Legacy United is Looking for You!

I promise you — I have always believed that I was meant to do something extraordinary with my life– it just took me a little while to figure out how I was going to make that happen.

When I was a kid and people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up– I would always either say I didn’t know or I would copy what my friends were saying. I hadn’t figured it all out then, but I knew in my soul that ONE DAY — I would make a difference.

Here I am now. 22 months ago- I found my calling. I surrendered my life to Jesus and finally listened to the voice telling me which path to choose. I am here. I am creating the life that I was meant to live. I love every second of every day. Even those moments that seem to be terrible- I pull the good and learn the lesson.

I still have so many achievements to accomplish- but I have learned more about who I AM in the last year and a half than I could have ever imagined.

This is my passion, my love, my life. I am choosing. I am the boss. And I dare anyone to tell me I ‘can’t’ do something.– watch me! I promise you– I will PROVE you wrong!! This is the BEST life I could ever imagine and I have the FREEDOM to live how I want.

I’m inviting YOU to come along. Choose the path less taken. Choose to design your own life. I will mentor you, teach you and guide you every step of the way. Beachbody has helped me create a life I’ve dreamed of and it’s only getting better!

Are you in?

I am a normal mom who is blessed to run a health and fitness business from home. I plan my schedule. Today I have worked for 3 hours- my choice. And I will work for an hour after the kids go to bed before date night with my man

When I started 22 months ago– I put in one hour a day. Focus, determination, drive and belief are what led me and being teachable, duplication and consistency have built me to where I am today.

Now- I have the most amazing team and we are changing lives by the second. Building a business should be on everyone’s radar because YOU DECIDE how fast you grow. YOU DECIDE your path and GOD leads the way.

What if you walk into your office tomorrow and your boss tells you they have to let you go.

What if you wake up and you think ‘what am I doing with my life?! I never see my family!’

What if you had the option to do more? Be more!
EVEN IF… You love your job now or you love being a stay at home mom. What if building an online business would guarantee you financial security? 

—> Would you make an hour a day happen to starting something new?

I did. And wow. The rewards have been endless!!

Would you like to be one of 10 wonderful women this month who will personally be mentored by me? Would you like to work 1:1 with me while I give you the best technique for this business? Are you ready to shine?!

Please email me at valbozzo15@gmail.com. Please post COACHING INFO in the subject line!!! Remember- I’m only taking 10!’
Let’s do this remember- if I can do this — anyone can do this.

Reeses PB Cups- Shakeology Style

Tosca’s Clean Eating Tips and Portion Control!

I have based most of my clean eating around the amazing Tosca Reno.  I realized one day that I had to take control over what I was putting into not only my body, but serving to may growing family as well.  I realized quickly that I was NOT eating proper portions or proper types of food– even though I took pride in saying that I “ate healthy.” — NADA. That was false. Taco Bell drive thru twice a week, bread/rolls with every dinner, too many carbs and too little veggies– and don’t get me started on the sugar consumption each day!! BUT I was honestly blind to it… because “I was thin– it didn’t affect me.” BUT IT DID. My mood, my energy levels, my skin, basically everything about my body was just BLAH!!

BUT– Tosca couldn’t have said it better!  Are you struggling with eating clean and what to eat and when to eat it!  I promise you- eating 5-6 small meals a day is what your body needs. And it is not hard to do once you get into the routine! Check out this YouTube video on portion sizes to get your mind in the right place!!!

I absolutely love TOSCA and she is usually my GO TO book and I look up her youtube vids often!  I am so thankful that I picked up one of her books one day about a year and a half ago! It has changed my life and made me see that clean eating tastes AMAZING and I am not deprived at all!! I lost those last pesky 10 pounds that were sticking around because of the ‘plateau’ that I thought I would never overcome… It is all mental! That paired with drinking my Shakeology everyday and working out 6 days a week is exactly what I need and exactly what my clients do! It’s a lifestyle! And it works!





If you want more information please message me at valbozzo15@gmail.com and I’d be glad to help you develop a plan to start eating clean and getting lean!!

Thanksgiving Meal Plan and Prep!


Tomorrow is THANKSGIVING already!!! I can hardly believe that another year has flown by and we are approaching one of my most favorite times of the year! There is always a mad dash of things to do, to get done, to buy, to make, etc!! It’s been so hectic that it would totally be acceptable to not workout or plan out my meals…RIGHT?!!  Well, the previous me would of chucked my workout in a heart beat and relied on caffeine and drive thru food to make it thru a busy week.  Now my non negotiable is my workout and my meal planning because that is my “me” time and trust me, if I don’t workout I am not going to be a nice mommy!

Not at all!!! #fitmom means that you value your health and that you want to not only be the best example you can be but you want to be around long enough to teach your kids that example as well! Your kids follow your lead , so if you want healthy kids lead by example! You don’t have to have a perfect 6 pack to be a good example, instead teach your kids the importance of regular exercise and healthy vs unhealthy choices! My kids tell me all the time what healthy choices are! #notselfish #smart 
Be a #fitfam #leadbyexample and set your family up for success! It starts with you!!!! #turbofire #hiit25 #pushplay #gotime
fitspo fitness motivation

So this week I am committing to continuing to be that fit mom despite the million different responsibilities.

I whipped up my meal plan!

Here are my thoughts! So I can workout every day this week.  We are traveling to my in laws for a few days.  So I will get up early and do my workout at my normal time so I don’t disturb the rest of the family.  Then, I will have my oatmeal for breakfast, my apple and almonds for snack, then lunch/dinner is our feast! I will have my shakeology in the evening to help my belly deflate!

What am I eating on Thanksgiving:  Turkey, stuffing,mashed potatoes, a TINY bit of gravy, green beans, roll (YES love rolls)  and a side salad!  Then of course I will have dessert, but I will be mindful! I will pick something that I LOVE and not eat something just because it is there!! I am going to enjoy, but of course in moderation, not over stuffed and no guilt.  


Remember to eat breakfast on Thanksgiving- one of the biggest myth is that you will just not eat and save up all your calories for dinner and be ok!  It won’t be!  Your body needs food when you wake up to jump start your metabolism and wake up your body.  

Like your wine- I love wine and that is my biggest downfall!  But the one thing I have learned is I can have wine and still feel good!  So my rule of thumb is to stay hydrated.  For every glass of wine that you drink have 1 full glass of water!!  Stay hydrated.

Now Thanksgiving doesn’t roll over into Friday, Saturday and Sunday either!  I am back on track Friday morning with a killer long cardio workout to just burn it off and I may switch up up and have Shakeology for breakfast.

I am actually doing T25 this week- i have body beast in there, but I scratched that!! It’s all about the cardio and prepping for Insanity Max 30 coming out next week!! Bring on the fat blasting!!!

Every day we wake up and are faced with 2 choices. The choice to face our FEARS or the choice to remain the same.

Facing your fears is definitely the harder route, it’s the road less traveled and it’s the road that when taken leads to failure but also leads to success. It’s the road that takes time, that isn’t a quick fix, that doesn’t make you rich tomorrow or skinny in an hour. It’s the road that leads to personal growth, lifelong health and fulfillment.

There is a reason why the finish line isn’t crowded. It’s because most people don’t have the vision of the possibilities instead all they can see is how hard it will be to get there!

So as you start this week, be a visionary, be a dreamer but most importantly be a DOER!!! You can see that finish line off in the distance, now imagine what it feels like to cross it?! NOW LETS GET TO WORK!


I didn’t always eat clean and I certainly didn’t always exercise. It wasn’t until I was feeling worn down, tired and my muffin top was rearing its ugly head that I decided I needed to change.

I wasn’t perfect when I started, I made bad food choices, I beat myself up over it, I weighed myself to many times a day and I cried because it wasn’t coming off fast enough. But just because I didn’t see the immediate results doesn’t mean I gave up! I continued to focus on improving my health, the quality of the foods I ate, the pairing of the right foods and proper portion size! I exercised regularly and pushed thru the ups and downs! Now what once was a struggle is now a habit and a part of who I am!

Trust me, you can make a healthy lifestyle a habit to!
Sneak peak into a typical day of clean eating! I eat a lot of food and I eat often! PS I LOVE TO EAT! I have energy and I never diet!!!

Strive for the right balance for you!!!!


Have a Healthy and Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
