    Exciting news! Carrots ‘N’ Cake was nominated for “Best Healthy Eating Blog” at Fitness Magazine! Woohoo! What an honor. If you have a minute, I’d LOVE for you to vote for CNC. It only takes a few seconds! Pretty please? Breakfast I woke up craving nut butter this morning, so I toasted up a couple […]


    Pugs + Teachers

    July 29, 2010


    Two things I really love in life: pugs and teachers— specifically Murphy and Mal! 😉 Serious pug love. (Mal didn’t want to be on the blog today. :-?) Snack After my weirdo massage, I spent the afternoon catching up with emails and working on my various freelance articles for the week. While working away, I snacked […]



    Something crazy happened at Body Pump tonight: I increased my weight on biceps to 23 pounds!!! Ok, this probably doesn’t blow your mind at all, but this is a huge deal for me. I’ve been taking Body Pump classes, 2-3 times per week, for nearly 7 months now, but I have yet to increase my […]

    Dog Tired

    July 4, 2010
