29 Questions {Blog Survey}

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.

HELLO! Happy Friday to you!

Ever since I started working with clients via Designed to Fit Nutrition, my faith in people on the Internet has been restored. As you can imagine, I get my fair share of trolls and haters on CNC, but coaching strangers from all over the country has really been such an awesome experience. I love getting to know my clients and talking to them about food, fitness, health, and wellness, which is most definitely a fun perk of the job for me. Anyway, the reason I am telling you this is because some of my clients have turned into (Facebook) friends. One of them recently shared this questionnaire on her personal page, and I thought it would make the perfect blog post, sooooo here are my answers to her 29 questions! And, of course, feel free to play along in the comment section!

1. Who are you named after? I don’t think anyone in particular, but I heard a story once that my mom wanted to name me “Tina,” but my grandmother preferred a Catholic/Christian name, so my parents went with “Christina.”

2. Last time you cried? Welllllll, I basically cried all of January (feeling sooooooo overwhelmed and stressed), but I’m good now! 🙂

3. Do you like your handwriting? Yes. It actually looks a lot like Mal’s handwriting, which is a little weird, right?

4. What is your favorite lunch meat? I love a good ham sandwich.

5. Do you still have your tonsils? Yep.

6. Would you bungee jump? Hell no. Too afraid of heights. And dying.

Question of the Day

Your turn! Pick a question (or two) from above and share in the comment section! 



  1. 3. Do you like your handwriting? No. I write worse than an 8 year old boy!

    6. Would you bungee jump? Been there, done that, would not do it again

    17. Favorite smell? Fresh cut grass

  2. Strange question, but does that sweatshirt puff out at the bottom? It’s so hard to tell by the photos online how it fits! What size do you wear it in? I’ve been looking for a basic hoodie!

  3. Favorite smell: definitely also my toddler!! I was giving her a kiss on her head last night and marveled that even though she’d been outside playing and sweating for four hours, she still smelled like heaven 🙂

  4. I really feel for you with the being overwhelmed thing. New jobs and added responsibilities are so hard! I went through something similar about two years ago. One of my favorite sayings that I still cling to is “I didn’t come this far just to come this far”. It reminds me that I am tough and will get through it and conquer it because, hey, we are bad-asses after all! That and allthewine. Glad you are in a better place with it all now. 🙂

  5. 9) Do you think you are strong? Depends on the day 😉 Physically yes, with room for improvement. Mentally/Emotionally- some days are harder than others but I think we’re all stronger than we realize most of the time!

    24) Last movie you watched- Inception last night! And I absolutely fell asleep in the middle 🙂

  6. Favorite smell – my dad’s Cologne…I love it and it makes me feel safe.
    Favorite ice cream….tough decision, but either cookies and cream or coffee.

  7. So I made your broccoli, egg, hashbrown bake BUT used up Dr. Pragger’s Black Bean Quinoa burgers we had in the freezer in place of hashbrowns. I had 4 patties, so in the 8×8 pan I just laid the 4 patties on top and it’s the perfect size. Topped with avocado, cheese, and my husband added salsa = awesome!!!
