A 9-5 Commitment

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.

Good morning!

Let’s get right to it because I want to hear your responses to the Question of the Day!


After CrossFit last night, I snacked on a bunch of Pretzel Crisps + hummus while dinner cooked. I’m not sure how many crisps I ate, but enough to finish off the hummus!

On the menu for dinner: roasted broccoli.

And Soy-Glazed Cod, which is the best fish recipe ever. It’s super simple to prepare and it takes no time at all to cook.

After dinner, I enjoyed a few pieces of dark chocolate. I love this stuff. And I (usually)only need a little bit to satisfy my sweet tooth.

This morning, I woke up thinking about Teddie Peanut Butter. We haven’t had it in our house for a couple of weeks now, so I finally made a special trip to Stop & Shop yesterday to buy a jar. We typically do our grocery shopping at Whole Foods, but I refuse to buy Teddie there because it costs like $6 a jar and everywhere else it’s $3-4.

Anyway, Teddie is just so perfect in oatmeal, so I made myself some Super Creamy Oatmeal and added two huge scoops to it. So delicious!!

Feel Great Weight

When I decided to lose weight, I worked full-time in an office where I sat at a desk for 40 hours each week. I also worked part-time at a healthclub and took night classes to complete my Master’s degree. Monday through Thursday, I’d leave my house at 5:00 AM and not return until after 10:00 PM. Obviously, my schedule was a challenge, but I knew if I started to make excuses, I’d never lose the weight, so I toughened up and created a fail-proof plan that helped me drop more than 20 pounds. See the slideshow of what helped me, and how it can work for you too.

Question of the Day

How do you stick to your healthy habits with a busy schedule?

  2. To help me stay healthy while I am busy studying I make it a habit to have breakfast as a source of fuel. Every morning I make smoothies from lots of fruits and superfoods such as chia seeds and blend them together with my nutribullet. I do sometimes have breakfast as a ritual but only on weekends. You can many of these ingredients in powdered form. In powdered form you would be able to make smoothies even faster.
