“Fueled By Granola” Workout

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Good morning, friends!

So, this workout was a fun one! It was fast and furious and over before I knew it. Love that.

As for the name, I joked to Mal that all of the granola I’ve eaten lately “fueled” me through it. Haha!


For this workout, you need a barbell (I used 65 pounds), a kettlebell (I used 45 pounds), somewhere to run, and a timer.

Fueled by Granola workout

The movements:

SAM_2022 (800x533)


FYI: My headband is from JUNK, and my shirt (burnout material = love), shorts, and sneakers are from Reebok.

SAM_2034 (800x533)
SAMSUNG CSCSAM_2049 (533x800)

This workout was definitely one of those “quick and painful” ones! Haha! I took me about 15 minutes to finish, and I was exhausted (and insanely sweaty) by the end!



  1. Super random question… I noticed your stone path. Does Murphy ever go after the rocks? To eat or play? I have 2 dogs and we have some space on the side of the yard where grass refuses to grow.

    1. @Tricia: Just wanted to chime in that my parents have rocks in the their backyard (CA – hello drought!) and that their 2 Labs never bother with them. I totally thought our German Shepherd would as a pup too when he visited, but nope!

  2. Good for you mama! I LOVED outdoor workouts when I was off with my son. Some days it was the only way for me to move my body. I would go in the backyard and workout while he napped. I would do skipping, burpees, planks, lunges, squats, sit ups, push-ups….anything I could to get a decent workout in!

    Random question that I’m sure you’ll be posting about – are you tracking calories at all since you’re working out and breastfeeding? Just curious because I didn’t while I was nursing. I just ate when I was hungry and lost the weight quickly and never had a milk supply issue. My tummy region did not go back to the way it was pre-pregnancy, but I now know that’s b/c I had diastasis (separated abs) and was doing all the wrong things (planks, push ups, crunches etc) that probably made it worse.

  3. Tina – question for you. I’m tossing around the idea of getting the things I would need for a home gym (barbell, bumper plates, squat/power rack, etc)…i.e. all the things I usually use in the Box. My question is, do you feel like your workouts are the same at home as they are in the Box, performance wise? I feel like I push myself hard in the Box because of the people around, but not sure how not having people around would change a workout… I know you workout at home with Mal so it might not be the same, but wondering what your thoughts are…before I dish out $1,800 for a home gym 🙂

    1. My workouts are a lot more fun at CrossFit! And, of course, I push myself harder when I’m working out with other people, but I’m definitely not slacking off when I exercise at home. How do you typically work out when you’re alone? Are you able to push yourself?

      1. @Tina: To an extent I push myself, but I don’t think I do as much as when I’ve got people watching me 🙂 I love the idea of the ability to work out at home and work on strength…maybe if I remember how much I spent on the gym, it will push me to go hard! Hah

  4. I think that it is safe to say that right now my workouts are fueled by granola. Or at least they were until last night, when i finished off the last of the cranberry macaroon Nature box goodness. LE SIGH. I think that after this marathon (2 months to go!) I am going to push myself to get back to adding intensity and drive to my workouts. I am just too comfortable right now (except for long runs and tired days, that is different :D)

  5. Looks like a great workout! I just finished up my fundamentals course at my local Box and can’t wait to get started on the ‘real’ workouts! The thought of using 65 lbs. sounds like a TON of weight to me, but I suppose I need to start some where. 🙂

    Nice work!

  6. I ordered a JUNK headband and it should be here on Friday. I can’t wait! I’m really hoping that it will help keep the sweat out of my eyes during our WODs. It’s so hot down here in Florida!
