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 would rather train with Jackie, not really a Jillian fan after her comment about not wanting to have children because it would ruin her body. Seriously!!??

  2. Haha this was my comment yesterday! I used to watch Jackie’s show “Workout” on Bravo a couple years ago…..she is a tough cookie, but Jillian is psycho and sometimes the crazies can put the smack down!

    I’d love to be trained by either of them!

  3. Jackie! Not to be horrible, but I really can’t stand Jillian. (Or at least the image she portrays).

    That being said…Jillian might win in a fist fight.

  4. I love them both, so it would be hard for me to choose. If I absolutely had to, I would pick Jillian to train with and Jackie to win the fight. Jillian is the tougher trainer, but I think Jackie is really bad ass…plus she’s a lot taller, Jillian is only 5’3.

  5. I read your post from yesterday and totally agree…I live here too and all the snow and cold is killing me. But that’s ok, I made a to-do list too (one thing on it–go to the gym before it snows 🙂 ), so the snow isn’t going to win this time! It did last week.

    I think Jillian would win. She’s a tough cookie.

  6. I prefer getting hammered on random Sunday nights ;). I would definitely prefer Jackie as a trainer I think. She has the sickest abs ever, and she doesn’t really yell. That would be a good fight though, hard to call.

  7. Jillian for both questions! Man I’d love to have a personal trainer. I’m pretty self motivated, but it would be nice to have someone give me an extra push and make me improve my form!

  8. I’m in NYC and I have to agree, I’m sick of the snow! I have to leave for class in a few hours and I’m dreading going outside. As far as the trainers, I would pick Jackie for both 🙂

  9. Your post is cracking me up because I am the same way (living in Boston and hating the snow). There’s an episode of 30Rock where they all feel the same way about the weather, and they end up going to Boston for a weekend and everyone gets into fights. It’s pretty true to form.

  10. Jackie and Jackie. I’ve watched all of Jackie’s shows and love her. Plus the fact that Jillian has diet pills seems like a MAJOR mixed message to me.

  11. Definitely Jillan 🙂 I love her!!
    & I’m glad you were able to enjoy the night out with your hubby last night! Sometimes Tuesday nights out are just what you need 😉

  12. I would much rather train with Jackie! She seems so nice and knowledgeable. I think Jillian would win in a fight though because she has the diet pill-fueled rage fire inside of her.

  13. Oh Tina, I have the perfect snowed in recipe for you. I just posted it on my blog. Guaranteed delicious, plus it’ll make your house smell wonderful!

  14. I love both Jackie and Jillian. In the end though I’d probably go with Jackie because she has changed the way shes trained over the years. I think she has more patience and won’t be as high strung like Jillian tends to be. Maybe it’s the way the show is edited? Jackie likes to incorporate more wholefoods and healthier items I’m more familiar with. Jillian will support certain name brands and her own supplements that I don’t agree with to support a healthy lifestyle.

  15. 2 drinks and you’re “hammered”?!

    Jillian would win a fight – she has waaaay too much testosterone. I would train with Jackie for fear of Jillian pushing her diet pills on me.

  16. Tough call, but I’m gonna have to go with Jackie as my personal trainer. I think Jillian would win in a fight because she likely would fight dirty. But I like Jackie’s training style better and she has a ridiculously CUT BODY that I would love to attain. Fun question : )

  17. The real question is – which one has a better workout video? I’m stuck inside with all this snow and, although I would prefer to work out with Jackie, I have been doing Jillian’s 30 day shred.

  18. I love this question! I would want to look like and train with Jackie. Jillian would totally win in a fight though. She’s heartless.

  19. I would rather train with Jillian because I would want to maintain a more feminine figure. I don’t like the look of super muscular women, and I know my husband doesn’t… That being said I could definitely stand to tone up!

  20. Totally would workout with Jackie – she did a training plane for Shape’s July issue (Jewel on the cover), and it was amazing. I love it and still do it pretty often.

    And Jillian is scary and mannish, and probably would be a hairpulling dirty fighter… so shed probably win.

  21. I think Jillian would win, hands down, for the same reason….she would fight dirty. BUT Jackie is taller…..that’s a tough one.

    I would much rather work out with Jackie. I love Jillian’s 30 day shred for the 20 minute aspect, but if she says “hit it” one more time, I will probably barf. I have to turn down the sound.

    I have only used Jackie’s workout OnDemand, but I really like it.

  22. I would rather train with Jackie, but I think Jillian would win the fight. Not because she’s stronger, but because she is super competitive and I think she would be scrappy.
