GUEST POST: Annual “My Stocking” Series on La vie Jaime

I am super excited to be back for my 4th year as a featured blogger in La vie Jaime‘s annual My Stocking Series where local Boston Bloggers get together and create their ultimate stocking filled with their favorite items from their holiday wish list!

I look forward to this series every holiday season here you can find my stockings from 2012, 2013, and 2014.

My theme for 2015 was Gifts for the Healthy Foodie so head on over to  La vie Jaime to get all of the details on my picks you see featured here!

My Stocking


I want to give a very big THANK YOU to my friend Jaime for including me each year in this awesome holiday series! 



Copycat Boston Market Sweet Potato Casserole

I cannot believe it is already the week of Thanksgiving!! 

Being such a big foodie Thanksgiving is naturally one of my favorite holidays! This year I am heading to my family’s house on Cape Cod and I am looking forward to spending a few days relaxing, cooking, and of course EATING! While I will splurge during the Thanksgiving meal I do plan to get my workouts in daily, drink my superfood shake each morning and make sure I drink plenty of water.

My Dad loves the sweet potato recipe from Boston Market so over the past few years I have been making him this copycat recipe. It has become a HUGE hit at the table and I get asked for the recipe repeatedly so here it is! 

Sweet Potato Casserole

Since this recipe is so NOT 21 Day Fix approved here are some tips to set you up for success on Thanksgiving day as well as a video from 21 Day Fix creator Autumn Calabrese on “How to Survive Thanksgiving Dinner”.

9 Weight Loss Tips During Thanksgivingfrom Nutritious Life

My tip for you? Control what you can control but also enjoy the holiday time and all the yummy foods and drinks that come with it! The worst thing you can do is totally deprive yourself – if you do that you are setting yourself up for a much larger splurge in the future that may not be as easy to get back on track from after. 

What are you doing to celebrate Thanksgiving? What are your favorite recipes? Comment on this post to share :)

  • Creator of Body Beast
  • Crowned Mr. Israel – twice!
  • A Master Professional Personal Trainer

The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is built on the three phases of SSP Training—Stabilization, Strength, and Power.

Other programs only focus on one or two phases, which might give you decent results. But The Master’s Hammer and Chisel program incorporates all three methods to help you relentlessly chip away fat and carve every muscle for a strong, visually stunning body in 60 days.




Don’t let numbers define you!

Sagi and Autumn want you to focus on how good you’ll look and how amazing you’ll feel. You can expect…

  • Improved strength, power, cardiovascular endurance, balance, and agility
  • Incredible definition that you might not have been able to achieve before
  • The flexibility to lean out, sculpt and maintain what you have, or build muscle, depending on your unique goals



Edwin M.
Edwin M. committed to 60 days of the Master’s Hammer and Chisel in our test group, and he lost 12 pounds and 10 inches in 60 days! He said, “Working out with two trainers is the best of both worlds. Sagi gives you the push to go harder with weights, Autumn pushes you for longer reps.”


Susie B.
Susie B. participated in the 60 day Master’s Hammer and Chisel test group. By the end, she was lean, defined, and strong. She said, “I’ve sculpted muscles that have been hidden for years! Especially my arms, back, core, abs, and BOOTY!”


Jade W.
Jade W. was in our Master’s Hammer and Chisel test group. He got completed ripped in just 60 days! He said, “My abs are as defined as they’ve ever been, every muscle in my body is showing. My energy is through the roof and my confidence is at an all time high.”
James J.

As part of our test group, James J. completed 60 days of the Master’s Hammer and Chisel, and he’s got the results to prove it. He said, “I am much more toned, shredded, and ripped. My arms are bigger and my abs are more defined.”



Like the nutrition plans in 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME, The Master’s Hammer and Chisel uses the portion control container system. However, it is tailored to meet your specific goals and the nutritional demands that a challenging body-sculpting program like The Master’s Hammer and Chisel requires.

The Nutrition Plan Quiz included in the program and nutrition guide will determine your appropriate calorie chart based on your goals. Like the calorie breakdowns in 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME, the ones in The Master’s Hammer and Chisel Program and Nutrition Guide also include the number of color-coded, portion-control containers your bracket requires each day to meet your goals.

You can customize The Master’s Hammer and Chisel nutrition plan to meet your unique goals. If you want to gear your nutrition toward building more muscle (a surplus), or toward shredding fat (a deficit), you can use the Nutrition Plan Quiz to recalculate your calories to help you reach your goals.



  • 12 workouts on 6 DVDs, each workout is 30 to 40 minutes
  • A set of 7 portion-control containers and a Shakeology shaker cup
  • A 30-day supply of Shakeology Home Direct
  • The Master’s Hammer and Chisel Program and Nutrition Guide, Quick-Start Guide, 60-Day Calendar
  • 2 bonus workouts: 10 Min Ab Hammer and 10 Min Ab Chisel 
  • 1 exclusive Team Beachbody workout, The Master’s Cardio, when you order through a Coach
  • A 30-day premium trial membership to the Team Beachbody Club where you can stream your workouts anywhere with Beachbody On Demand

**NOTE: There is also The Master’s Hammer and Chisel Performance Pack includes all of the above but instead of Shakeology you get your first 30-day supply of Beachbody Performance Line’s Energize and Beachbody Performance Recover.

Challenge Pack


21 Day Fix EXTREME is a shorter, goal-specific program, whereas The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is a full 60-day program with slightly longer workouts. 21 Day Fix EXTREME focuses on getting you shredded, while The Master’s Hammer and Chisel also helps you improve other aspects of your fitness, such as muscular endurance, power, strength, and agility. It’s a whole new approach to getting you ripped.



Body Beast is a bodybuilding program that focuses on muscular hypertrophy. The Master’s Hammer and Chisel includes aspects of bodybuilding, but also focuses on improving endurance, power, agility, strength, balance, and range of motion to sculpt a powerful, defined physique.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Yesterday marked Day 1 out of 21 for me and the STRUGGLE. WAS. REAL.

I had evening plans to head to my friends house for a girls get together knowing there was going to be some yummy snacks! However, knowing what is in store for the evening made me able to plan the rest of my day accordingly! I got my workout in and made sure my nutrition was on point and included lots of fruits, veggies, protein and my superfood shake.

It is completely unrealistic for me to have a straight 21 days where I can be 100% on point with my nutrition, especially during the holiday season, but I WILL get my workout in daily and really make my cheats count when I do have them.

I also never like to show up to a party empty handed and wanted to bring something yummy, yet healthy, for the girls to enjoy. This Chocolate Peanut Butter pie has only 5 ingredients (including my favorite chocolate superfood powder and greek yogurt) and does not need to be baked in the oven. It took me 5 minutes to make and I didn’t feel guilty when I had a slice last night since it was packed full of protein.

The ability to make smart choices and have a healthy relationship with food is one of my favorite parts about my nutrition program. Keep your eye out for the recipe in the comments section of this post in the new few days :)

I have an ongoing “Healthy THROUGH the Holidays” wellness group that just kicked off this week. Comment on this post or email me at   💌 ejgoodma [at] gmail [dot] com if you would like to join in!

We will not let the holidays get the best of us this year!!
