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.

May was crazy for me! I barely stopped moving this month, but it made for some exciting posts. Here are my top twelve blog posts from May!

Mal’s 30th Birthday


Hooray! Mal’s (first) birthday celebration was a success! It started with 30 beers, which he drank all at once. Not surprisingly, he got sick, so we ended up in the emergency room to get his stomach pumped. Ok, that’s a total lie. None of that happened, except the part about me giving him 30 beers.

What to Pack for a 10-Day Vacation

Good times in New York City! I can’t believe my trip is already over and I’m back on the Bolt Bus to Boston. I think I may have spent almost as much time on the bus as I did in the Big Apple!

Two Stories About Double Unders

Filthy Fifty

Once upon a time, there were two newbie CrossFiters””let’s call them “Mal” and “Tina.” They had never done CrossFit before, so, not surprisingly, there were a bunch of skills in the CrossFit repertoire in which they wanted to become proficient.

2012 Run to Remember Half Marathon


Hooray! I did it! I got the PR I wanted so badly! The Run to Remember Half Marathon started at 7:00 this year (thank goodness since last year’s heat kicked my butt), so I picked up Elizabeth at 6:15 to drive to the race together.

2012 Northeast Regional CrossFit Games


Hi, guys! Happy Memorial Day! I spent the last two days at the Northeast Regional CrossFit Games at the Reebok Headquarters in Canton, Massachusetts.

Why I Don’t Do Diets


The main reason why I don’t do diets: beer!! But, seriously, I’ll get into why I don’t do diets in minute. Let’s first recap my eats! Ok, beer really is a big reason though. Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

In case you missed them:



  1. seriously cannot believe it is already june! I love looking back on the month and seeing how much I’ve done though – looks like you’re pretty accomplished these past four weeks!

    1. I love Annie, and I’d love for her to win again, but she’s got some serious competition this year! I’m also rooting for Kristen Clever. For guys, I definitely want to see Austin Malleolo do well.

  2. I loved the Why I don’t Do diets post! There are so many people out there who are fit and at a healthy weight who eat things from all food groups, so why should someone feel the need to cut anything out? Though I definitely understand veganism/vegetarianism for humane/religious reasons! Congrats on 2 big races in one month!

  3. OMG…I missed the 30 beer post. (and belated happy birthday to Mal) I hope you don’t mind, but I may “borrow” that idea for my husband’s upcoming birthday. (and he’ll need MANY more beer than Mal to get to his birth number! 🙂 ) When I do, I’ll link back to you sight, so everyone knows it was your idea not mine. At least, I’ll do that when I sober up – assuming I help him with a few. KIDDING, KIDDING, they’ll be ALL his!!! Hope June is as good to you as May was.
