Questions for the Athletes

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.

I can’t believe I am leaving for California tomorrow morning for the CrossFit Games. I AM SO PSYCHED!! In preparation, I spent some time this morning compiling a bunch of questions to ask the athletes””of course, if I have a chance to speak with any of them. I know they’re going to be plenty busy competing, so I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but you never know! Imagine if I had the opportunity to chat with Annie… or Rich Froning!? OMG, I would die. GNC also said they’d try to hook us up with their sponsored athletes, so I want to make sure I am prepared with questions.

Here are the questions I’ve put together so far:

  • How did you discover CrossFit?
  • What are you looking forward to the most about the Games?
  • What do you like best about competing?
  • What aspect of the Games do you find most challenging?
  • What did you do to prepare for the Games?
  • What motivates you?
  • What’s your favorite benchmark workout?
  • What achievement are you most proud of?
  • What advice would you give someone who wants to try CrossFit for the first time?
  • What does your supplementation/nutrition program consist of?
  • Do you have a favorite pre-competition meal?

AHHH! I seriously cannot wait for the Games!

Ok, time for some eats!


While cooking dinner last night, I snacked on some Pretzel Crisps.

Dinner was taco salads made with ground beef, homemade taco seasoning, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, and salsa.

Simple and delicious.

This morning, I woke up craving My Favorite Breakfast Pancake, but we were out of nut butter (the horror!!!), so I used sunflower butter in the mix. It worked out well!

I topped my pancake with blackberries and a big scoop of sunflower butter.

Question of the Day

What would you ask the athletes at the CrossFit Games? What do you want to know about them?



  1. Have fun at the games!! I wish I was going! I am in awe of all of the athletes. As for questions, I would love to ask them about their nutrition (similar to your question): do they follow a particular diet, such as Paleo or the Zone? What do they eat a few days prior to competition, on game day and then post-workout?

  2. ANnie and I went to school together, actually we’re classmates. 🙂 she’s a sweetheart, but she has always been very athletic and focused. If you get to talk to her, ask her about chocolate, she loves talking about it, lol 🙂

  3. I actually just found out that a guy I went to school with since Elementary School is competing in the games, Chase Daniels. Pretty crazy!
