Back to Bed

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.

Look who went back to bed this morning!


Murphy and I went for a 30 minute walk around the neighborhood this morning and now he’s totally spent. He’s actually still sleeping in our bed. I’m telling ya, Murphy lives a very nice pug life.


I really wanted to curl up in bed with Murph, but work calls this morning. I didn’t get much done yesterday because I was running around all day, so today is all about catching up.


I started my day with a big bowl of oatmeal, which was half Mad Hectic oatmeal and half old-fashioned oats. As much as I love the Mad Hectic oatmeal, I find that if I mix it with regular oats, it holds off my hunger for much longer.


I also added chia seeds and two scoops of peanut butter to the mix.


No iced coffee with breakfast because we’re all out. 😕 I’m brewing some hot coffee right now though. I wonder if I can make the switch for today?

55 Knives

So, guess what?! One of my recipes is featured in a new downloadable ebook put out by Nick at Macheesemo! So cool! 😀 55knivesbanner.jpg

The 200-page book is a compilation of stories, recipes, and tips from 55 food bloggers. Each of us has a chapter and a story included. Mine is about my husband and one of his favorite recipes. The book is priced at $19, but this week, it’s only $14 (until June 1st).

Here’s where you can learn more and purchase the ebook: 55 Knives. Nick also includes some interesting FAQs about the project.

Question of the Day

Well, it’s not a technically question. 😉

Complete this sentence: I’m the kind of person who always _______.

P.S. Rumor has it that it’s Free Iced Coffee Day at Au Bon Pain in select markets! Details here.



  1. Im the kind of person who always has to have dessert! 😀
    It’s the first thing I look at when going through a menu. Always! lol

  2. How is it that animals always make sleeping look like so much fun?! Whenever I foster a cat for the MSPCA I always end up taking more naps (lol).

  3. i’m the kind of person who always tries to see the positive side of things. worrying, stressing out and getting angry is too overwhelming to me! i find it exhausting and life is much more pleasant when you’re happy! 🙂 your blog brings me a daily dose of happiness (especially w/ the adorable murphy pics).

  4. …. who does the navigating/map reading/direction-ing during car rides! One of the few type-A traits I possess. I don’t know what the other types are but i’m not type A haha.

  5. hey tina i love your blog!! when u don’t post dinner does that mean u were taking a blogging break or u don’t eat dinner? thanks!

  6. I am the kind of person who can always put myself in the other person’s shoes and see their side. I guess I am trying to say I have the gift of empathy. It makes me too emotional and sensitive sometimes but I try to remember it is a gift.

  7. … can’t slow down and rest. Even with a 103 degree fever yesterday, I was still thinking about how to cross things off of my never ending To Do List!

  8. I’m the kind of person who… (echoing what others have said)
    -can never sit down, take a rest, just do nothing
    -never skips a meal
    -always notices how other react to a situation/conversation bc I’m worried about everyone’s feelings

  9. I love all your pictures of Murphy. He brightens up my day.. so adorable. I can’t wait for the day I get my own little pup! I’m the kind of person who always rather laugh than cry.

  10. Murphy is adorable. My dogs do the same thing its crazy how sleepy they always seem. Your bed looks super comfortable as well.

    I’m the kind of person who over analyzes everything – BAD TRAIT
