I’m Going to the Games

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.

Exciting news of the day year: I’M GOING TO THE CROSSFIT GAMES!!!!!


Yep, that’s right! On behalf of GNC and Fitfluential, I’ll be heading to Carson, California from July 13-15 to spectate, blog, and tweet about the CrossFit Games.

AHHH! I am so pumped! This opportunity is seriously a dream come true, and I am beyond excited. Someone please pinch me! I’ll definitely keep you guys in the loop about all things CrossFit Games in the coming weeks!


Speaking of CrossFit, I’ve recently received a bunch of questions asking how long a typical CrossFit class lasts. Most classes are about an hour and usually include a warm-up, strength/skill work, the WOD, and a cool down/mobility. Check out this post for a breakdown of a typical class.

And here’s last night’s workout:


Snatch Complex: 1 Power Snatch, 1 Snatch below knee, 1 Overhead Squat, 1 Snatch @65% of 1 RM. 5 sets.


For time:

Run 400 meters
15 Hang Snatch
Run 400 meters
15 Snatch Below the Knee
Run 400 meters
15 Snatch

Rx: (115, 75)
L2: (95, 65)
L1: (75, 45)

I made some progress with my snatches last night! They’re a hard move for me, but I’m starting to get the hang of it. I used 45 pounds of the WOD and ran an extra 400 meters at the end of the workout, so I could count it as my one mile for the day for Summer Run Streak. I finished in 15:18.


Last night’s dinner was a good one: Maple-Glazed Cod with roasted broccoli. Instead of Dijon mustard, I used a grainy one, which ended up tasting delicious mixed with maple syrup.

I woke up craving a Protein Pancake this morning, so I tried a new recipe. In the mix:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 heaping tbsp sunflower butter
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Dash of cinnamon

I mixed everything in a food processor, but you could easily blend the ingredients by hand. This pancake turned out great, and I love that it’s a recipe for one since Mal isn’t always in the mood for pancakes in the morning.

I topped my pancake with a scoop of sunflower butter and fresh raspberries.

Question of the Day

Have you tried CrossFit? If so, what’d you think? If not, would you want to try CrossFit if you had the opportunity?

P.S. Check out my post about what I ate during the Reach the Beach relay!
