25 Things You (Probably) Don’t Know About Me

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 saw this “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” piece in last week’s US Weekly, and I thought it would make a fun blog post, so here goes!


  1. I’m happiest when I’m with my boys.
  2. ”¦ especially if it involves relaxing outside on a sunny day and drinking iced coffee.
  3. I’ve always wanted to visit the Grand Canyon.
  4. My family and I love cheese!
  5. I was a terrible math student.
  6. My first job was scooping ice cream. (I got carpel tunnel and gained 10 pounds that summer!)
  7. I could probably eat cake every day. Actually, I know I could.
  8. I stole clothes from my sister when we were in high school, but I would get mad at her whenever she did the same thing to me.

  1. I LOVE The Goonies, too!!! In fact, I had (still have) a Goonies lunch box that I got in 1st grade. Everybody made fun of me for it! I only wish I still had the thermos; I’d carry it to school every day.

  7. #3 I’ve visited the Grand Canyon in every season when I lived in Arizona and sat with my legs swinging over the edge for just a few minutes once .

    #20 Well, in a round about way I can address this one. I answered one of those questions AND WAS PUBLISHED in Real Simple magazine once. It was a dream of mine to be published.

    #22 At 5, I was deeply in love with Horses and Snoopy.

  8. Ah, the West Coast is pretty awesome, but you can have a West Coast mindset on the East Coast. I’m a native Seattle-ite :).

    The Grand Canyon is AWESOME… mind-blowing. Go there when you can. If you book in advance, try to do the White Water rafting trips through the Grand Canyon. I’ve been there a couple of times, but never far enough in advance to do the rafting!

  9. My first job was at our pool’s snack bar and I was horrible at dishing out change. No calculator = not exact change. :-/
    I could probably eat pizza every day! Or cake, cookies, and bars. (I don’t like to choose!)

    I met my husband at my first job out of college.
