29 TMI Blog Questions

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.

Yesterday, my friend Monica posted a Vlog with her answers to the questions below. They looked like a lot of fun, so I decided to use them in a blog post. I know I should have done a Vlog, but I’m a total goober on camera, so I tend to avoid video whenever possible. Although, a TV crew is coming to my house next week, so that will be interesting… more on that later. Anyway, here are my replies to the TMI questions. Feel free to play along in the comment section!

Black yoga pants, gray maternity tank top, and a purple hooded sweatshirt

27. Last time you were insulted?

I guess this is an insult, but it’s still funny… Mal has been calling me “Tina Planet” lately because I’m getting so big. He also pretends to get “caught” in my orbit. Yea… hilarious, Mal.

28. Favorite piece of jewelry?

My engagement ring.

29. Who should answer these questions next?

You guys! Go ahead, pick 3 questions and answer them!



  1. LOVE THESE SURVEYS! They remind me of my MySpace days..or Xanga…does anyone remember Xanga??

    1. Favorite piece of jewelry: most of my jewelry is special to me, but I have a pearl ring my parents gave me for high school graduation. It’s so beautiful and simple, and people compliment it constantly! I love it.

    2. Last time I kissed someone: too long ago! I haven’t seen my boyfriend for almost 2 weeks :(( Long distance…am I right?

    3. Where I go when I’m sad: my bed…

  2. I love Man in the Mirror! Definitely my favorite MJ song. Here’s my 3:

    Favorite song of all time: She Drive Me Crazy by Fine Young Cannibals. Weird, I know.

    Fears: When I’m driving and the driver in front of me throws a lit cigarette out the window, I think my car is going to blow up when I drive over it.

    Last thing that made me cry: (Similar!) Dateline from last Friday on the Boston Marathon bombings. As a runner I hold so much emotion for the marathon and I love the USA, so bombing Boston was so symbolic and offensive to me. I just think the Boston Marathon is such a pinnacle event for our sport and our national pride so it stung just a little bit more, you know? I’m so excited for Monday’s marathon and their ability to bounce back.

  3. I’m still LOL at Mal getting “caught” in your orbit!!! At 34 weeks pregnant I sympathize. Good thing you love a sense of humor 🙂

  4. Last thing that made you cry?
    My daughter called today, she was accepted into her top choice for a transfer school. She will be coming back to WA!

    Favorite Food?
    Good pizza and cannolis

    Place I want to visit?

  5. I love how Mal gets caught in your “orbit”. That’s hilarious! Sounds like you guys have a relaxed relationship. I might be a little overly sensitive if I’m ever pregnant because I’m already sensitive.

  6. Favorite song: “You’re the reason God made Oklahoma”
    Favorite quote: “things work out best for those who make the best out of the way things work out”
    Crush: Jimmy Fallon!

  7. I laughed out loud at your answer to last time you were insulted. Too funny! You and Mal seem so cute together! Congrats on the baby coming soon too! -longtime reader

  8. I have a huge celeb crush on Jason Gordon-Levitt, too! Have since he was in that baseball movie I saw as a kid. Sadly, pregnancy-brain is getting the best of me, so I can’t remember it :/

  9. Favorite food: anything & everything made from potatoes
    Crush: Norman Reedus/Daryl from Walking Dead
    Favorite Quote: “She thought she could and so she did.”

    Didn’t know you had your belly button pierced by the way! How’s it holding up with the pregnancy?

  10. Fun! I’m currently wearing an old elementary school sweatshirt (I used to be a teacher) and candy cane pj pants. Ha! Favorite actor Leonardo Dicaprio and I have a huge crush on him and Ryan Gosling, but who doesn’t?!?!?

  11. This is fun!

    1. Yes, I have, and am, in love with my husband.
    2. There’s nothing better than chocolate and peanut butter, but sweet potatoes are a close 2nd!
    3. I have always liked Rufus Sewell…. Hmmm… Funny to admit to everyone!

  12. ahahah!! Love Mal pretending to get “caught” in your orbit!!! something that my boyfriend would say as well!!!

  13. Wahoo, Friday Fun!

    8. Favorite song? right now, i’m LOVING Nico & Vinz’s “Am I Wrong” (http://youtu.be/bg1sT4ILG0w)

    10. Favorite quote? I think it was Einstein that said “Everyone’s a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing that it is stupid.”

    24. Place you want to visit? I have two trips in the works now: (1) to Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, & Chile in 2015 and (2) a tour of the Scandinavian countries in 2016!

  14. I literally laughed out loud when I read Mal’s “insult.” It’s really sweet that you guys can poke fun at each other now and then.

  15. I’m sorry, but that orbit thing is kind of funny. The thing that’s not fair is he doesn’t have all this crazy stuff going on with his body that you can make fun of to make it even.
    I had no idea you were 5’4″. You always look taller than that in your pictures. Gives me hope–I’m the same height!
    I agree with you on loud/soft music. Can’t stand when I’m out to dinner and have to practically shout the conversation. And the Grand Canyon is amazing. Definitely get there some day! Hmm…
    1. I have two tattoos (both in the same area), one of which I regret and have had half removed via laser, which is more painful than the tattoo was!
    2. When I’m sad, I’ll often sit on the bathroom floor. Not the most comfortable place, but it’s the only room in the house that has a lock on the door. When I do cry, it often is in the shower that I finally am able to let go. Must be that warm, comforting water?
    3. I have never been in a physical fight (but that one about you and your sister made me laugh!). Maybe because I only have a younger brother? We’d play fight and kind of smack each other on the rare occasion we could get away with it, but that doesn’t really count.

  16. Thank you for posting your candidness. Please accept these answers from a loyal follower.

    Three questions:

    8. Favorite Song?
    I have so many favorite songs. So I’ll make this my personal anthem question. It is an old school 90s song by Desiree “Gotta Be”. It just reminds me that I am can do more than I think and that I am more than I give my self credit for.

    19. The last thing that made you cry?
    I love the series M.A.S.H. and I’ve been on my own mini marathon lately. The final episode always gets me. I know it’s coming. I know the episode by heart. EVERY time it gets me. It’s also the first TV show that ever made me cry (first of many).

    25. Crush?
    Josh Elliott, formerly of Good Morning America and ESPN now working for NBC I think. On mute off mute I just think he’s very easy to look at and was a great way to wake-up. His devotion to his little girl made the crazy sports guy even easier to like.

    I want to thank you for your blog. I must admit I love seeing what you’ve been up to and I look forward to seeing your how your life changes with your pending addition.

  17. hahah, so you and I have some similiarites, when I was young, I got mad that my brother insulted me and called me names, so I stabbed him on the knee with a red pen and then cried about it. And I’m terrified of heights too!

  18. “Caught in your orbit” haha dying in my cubicle!!

    4. How tall are you? 5’3”
    23. Favorite food? mashed potatoes :X
    25. Do you have a crush? I totally agree with JGL, but I also am in love with Leo and Shane West. Too many good looking men in hollywood!

    tall: I am 5’8″
    favorite food: sweet potato fries and ice cream (they go together)

  20. 6. Any tattoos? Nope, and have had many friends try to convince me. Just not for me!
    7. Any piercings? Ears and belly button too!
    8. Favorite song? Well that’s a hard one. Right now Happy by Pharell comes to mind bc I absolutely love the video of Pharell on Oprah where he starts to cry on the impact the song has had!
