It’s Bootcamp Time

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


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.

Rise and shine, it’s bootcamp time!

This morning, Theodora invited Anne and me to attend a class at the indoor bootcamp that she regularly goes to. The instructor, Jasmine, kindly let us take the class for free this morning. Thank you, Jasmine!

The class was 45 minutes and really efficient. We got a full body workout and the use of kettlebells, Glides, Bender Balls, steps, and other equipment really maximized the workout and pushed us to the next level. The core work, in particular, was killer. We did leg lifts with the ball, Mountain Climbers with the Glides, and these torturous plank things called “Saws.” Yowsahs, my abs were burning! They’re going to be sore tomorrow!

Jasmine was really great– super motivating and full of positivity! Her class was awesome, and I definitely recommend it to anyone in NYC or visiting.

After bootcamp, we stopped by Starbucks to grab breakfast. I got a Protein Box, iced soy chia latte, and a banana.

Inside the Protein Box: a hardboiled egg, sliced apple, grapes, cheese, Justin’s honey peanut butter, and a piece of multigrain “muesli” bread. I love these kinds of meals with lots of different tastes.

I’m off to the Fitness Blogger Meet & Tweet! Woohoo!



  1. You never get a day off from working out do ya girl? lol Now I gotta say…that type of workout class looks like a blast!!! Do you know anything else about the class? (are they offered everywhere? how much? etc)

  2. Super cool that you were able to take the bootcamp! 🙂

    I didn’t know that Starbucks sold that!! I will definitely have to try that next time. 🙂

    Have fun at the Meet and Tweet!

  3. That looks like a blast! I haven’t taken a bootcamp class since college, but it is always fun to try something new, especially at a different gym than you are used to. Gotta jump on those opportunities that’s for sure! 🙂

  4. What a great post!!! I love working out with friends and an indoor bootcamp in the morning sounds like the perfect way to start the day:):)

  5. I love the protein box from Starbucks. It’s a good, quick meal if you need it. That workout sounds awesome- love when my abs are sore! 🙂

  6. what a fun class!! and the insructor makes all the difference in the world. love those combo boxes too. i was searching high & low this morning because I know I have a little packet of that Justin’s pb hiding somewhere!

  7. I love how you always fit in your workouts – and make them fun on the road… Okay, seriously – Chia latte? I had Chia seeds in my oatmeal this morning – but in your coffee? Is that a typo? If so, perhaps you’ve inspired a new creation! It could be kind of like the tapioca balls in tea – but actually nutritious! 😉

  8. Fun! I love boot camps! I am so jealous about the Starbucks up there, here in SC, we don’t get any of those snack packs, but last time I was in DC, my sister-n-law and I stopped in and I was in awe! All you can get here, are pastries 🙁

    Have a good time

  9. Wow! That area with all the kettlebells and ropes… it’s like a kid seeing a giant box full of TOYS! I would start giggling with excitement seeing them 🙂

  10. Love Starbuck’s protein boxes! It was great hearing you speak at the Fitness Magazine Meet ‘n Tweet event today. Always great to meet successful bloggers 🙂

  11. That class sounds amazing! I need to find a new fitness challenge soon, as my workouts have become a tad dullsville! You provided the right motivation to get out there and hunt for a good class:) Also, love the protein box~ great choice for a quick bfast:)

  12. I’m jealous of your chai tea! I gave them up for 14 miserable weeks – once the bf returns from his overseas assignment, I am getting myself one of those! July will be perfect for the iced version 🙂

  13. Thanks for posting. Will definitely check out Jasmine’s class. Can I ask you, what brand are the pants and shirt you are wearing? I really like the reflective stripes on the pants (usefull when running at night) and the colorblock shirt! Thanks in advance 🙂

  14. haha, that protein box is probably my fave thing at Sbucks besides their pastries! Such a wholesome little package….And I like grueling workouts too, they rock. I feel like you’d be “my ideal workout partner” 😉

  15. Coach Jaz is the best! I’ve trained with her for over two years, both in Team in Training and at her bootcamps. I recommend her classes 110%!

  16. The indoor boot camp space looks great. I want to live in New York for awhile to go to these on a regular basis.

    I love using Gliders for mountain climbers!
