Jackie Versus Jillian

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.

Today is a new day.

I just made a serious To Do list and plan to accomplish everything on it by the time it starts snowing this afternoon, so I can just relax and enjoy being snowed in. We’re supposed to get another foot! 😯


After last night’s shenanigans, not surprisingly, I woke a bit hungover, so I made myself a breakfast that would settle my stomach. (Who gets hammered on a random Tuesday night?!)

I had Teddie peanut butter on a toasted English muffins with banana slices.

And, of course, iced coffee with soy milk.

Feel Great Weight

The more I thought about how I trained and completed a marathon, the more I realized how similar the experience was to achieving and maintaining my Feel Great Weight. Who knew they were so alike?

Losing Weight Isn’t a Sprint; It’s a Marathon

Question of the Day

Who would you rather train with: Jackie Warner or Jillian Michaels?


Bonus question: Who would win in a fist fight: Jackie or Jillian?

This was a hot topic during last night’s dinner. Initially, Mal and I agreed that Jackie would definitely win in a fight, but I later changed my answer to Jillian. I feel like she would fight dirty!

Off to dig out my car!



  1. i love jackie, can’t stand jillian, so the answer to the first question’s easy! i do think jillian would win a fight though, because she’s bigger and meaner. haha

    1. I completely agree with you Christine, Jillian and Jillian. Did you ever see that episode where Jackie was talking about Jamie Eason’s boob job and how she didn’t approve of them. Turns out Jamie Eason is a breast cancer survivor.

  2. I really can’t stand Jillian, I don’t know why, but something about her just rubs me the wrong way! In addition, I’ve read one of her books and did not agree with a lot of the information she was providing/promoting. I love Jackie Warner though! In my opinion, her book was more informationally sound and promoted healthy-living in a much more balanced way. I say Jackie warner for the knock-out!

  3. I think Jackie would win! And hope she does kick some ass cause I just got her dvd and I am looking forward to her kicking mine!!

  4. Oh, I would pick Jackie for sure! I just got her book, ‘Why we are fat’ and its very informative! I haven’t read the whole book yet, but so far I’m liking it! Highly recommended! I really want her hard rock abs!!

  5. Question totally off subject here. How often do you find yourself eating the same food and do you ever get bored of it? If you do, how do you jazz it up? I have a list of foods I eat usually eat for breakfast, lunch & dinner. There’s probably 4 or 5 items in each group. Because they’re ‘safe foods’, stuff I know is healthy and yummy I try not to deviate. But sometimes I just get sick of it. How do I jazz it up?

  6. Sorry, I want to be fit, but I don’t aspire to look like Jackie. I like Jillian’s body so I would want to train with her. Sure she’s tough, but it works and I like her 🙂

  7. This is such a tough question! I’m a new Biggest Loser fan and have worked out with Jillian and can say it is tough. However, I think Jackies book seems more informative and easier to transition to…so I’d rather train with Jackie. Although, I think Jillian could take her in a fight

  8. I don’t watch either of their TV shows but I have Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred DVD which I don’t like and never use. I also have 2 of Jackie Warner’s DVDs which I do like, so I guess I’d have to go with Jackie. 🙂

  9. Thanks for ‘splainin’ your hangover. LOL Love your “morning after” meal, it’s right up my alley! Double YUMM!

    I don’t know much about Jackie, so I’d have to go with Jillian. She is a mean little thing, so if Jackie has even one nice bone in her body, she’d lose.


  10. Lately, I have really been enjoying the Jackie Warner workouts. I think I prefer her to Jillian. But in a fight, Jillian would probably win. You are right, she would fight dirty. 🙂

  11. I’d rather have Jackie train me. I prefer her style and that she doesn’t promote diet pills. What is that? Jillian is all about making money. In a fight, I think Jackie would win too.

    In response to your post about snow, I’m in Philadelphia and this morning commuted over an hour to get 30 min away to only leave 2 hrs later bc of this newest storm. We are getting 8-10 more inches tonight. This is ridiculous and I may have to copy your move from last night and have some drinks to warm me up 🙂

  12. I don’t love Jillian….so I say I’d train with Jackie. The fight would be a good one….but because I don’t love Jillian, I hope Jackie would win!

  13. I’d love to train with Jillian. She’s pretty motivational even on her No More Trouble Zones DVD so I can’t imagine how it would be in person. As for the fist-fight question, I have no idea! I think they could both hold their own.

  14. So I do the Jillian Michael’s dvd “Shred it with weights” and the Jackie Warner video “Circuit Training”. Jillian kicks my butt to the extreme. She states that it’s “a half hour of craziness”. Boy is she right. I like to do the Jackie circuit because I like doing the circuits. But I think Jillian would whip me into the best shape ever.

  15. Hahaha, I got tipsy on Tuesday night too! I had a friend’s birthday drinks, so Tina, you weren’t alone. The only thing is that Wednesday in Australia was Australia Day, so I had to have more beer! 😛

  16. i got “accidently” drunk last night too! that old Rasputin really sneaks up on you… to top it off though i ended up reading a chapter for my history class and taking the quiz drunk last night! ima trooper! and i got 100% on it too!

  17. The unplanned random nights of drinking are sometimes very necessary, that is how us Minnesotans avoid freezing in the long winters. 😉

    I think Jillian would crush Jackie and I prefer to train with Jillian.
