Back to My Boys

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜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.

Awww, I missed these guys! I was only away overnight, but seeing their smiling faces when I came home this afternoon made me so happy. πŸ˜€

I don’t know who was more excited to see me– my husband or my dog. Murphy almost wagged his tail right off his butt!



On my way to catch the BoltBus this morning, I made a couple of stops for breakfast: Fairway for fresh mixed berries and Starbucks for a turkey bacon egg sandwich on an English Muffin and an iced coffee with soymilk. This breakfast included so many of my favorite foods. It was a good way to start the day! πŸ˜€



My lunch was sort of pathetic today. I didn’t plan well, so I just sort of winged it. I wasn’t super hungry when I got onto the bus, so I didn’t think about buying more food for the ride to Boston.

I didn’t have many options being stuck on a bus, so I ended up snacking on some Food Should Taste Good Multigrain chips from last night’s swagbag. I liked ’em a lot.


When I arrived at my apartment nearly 5 hours later, I went right for the leftover cupcakes from my birthday party. I ended up choosing the Boston Cream flavor. Mmm! It wasn’t the healthiest option for lunch, but I was hungry!


A little while later, I snacked on a kiwi.



For dinner, I kept things simple with a Barney Butter + Β banana sandwich on whole wheat bread. (The Barney Butter was a special birthday treat from Sabrina! That girl knows how to pick good b-day presents!! :mrgreen:)

  1. I always miss my kitties. Even if it’s only one night away!!

    I use my Foam Roller religiously. This Tiger Tail thing has my intrigued…

  2. Aww, how cute about Murph dog. The cupcake is a-okay for lunch in my book, I mean hey, you technically can be celebrating your bday all the way from your surprise party to your actual birthday!

  3. Mm, that cupcake looks out of this world good! Sometimes a little afternoon treat is just what you need, healthiness be darned πŸ™‚ PB&B is my go to sammie combo too, nice and simple but delicious!

  4. I can see Murphy wagging his tail right off his butt…..I seriously LOL at this!! πŸ™‚ Glad you had fun on your short trip, I’m still envious though, of course. And Food Should Taste Good chips are my absolute favorite!!!

  5. Yay for being back in the comforts of home! And what’s more comforting than a welcome-home cupcake, really? Well done you πŸ˜€

  6. I have The Stick and I love it! Seems like the Tiger Tail is the same thing. I got it while training for my first marathon and it was a lifesaver after those 20+ mile long runs!

  7. Mmm, cupcakes… well, sometimes you just gotta wing it. At least it was tasty, right? πŸ˜‰ Welcome home! I’m glad you had a safe trip. πŸ™‚


  8. My cats get so clingy and needy whenever I vanish for a day or two.

    Your eats look delish today! That cupcake looks amazing. πŸ˜€

  9. Oh man, I can’t decide between a Tiger Tail or a high density foam roller. Guess I have til the end of the week to decide!

  10. There’s nothing better than coming home! Birthday cupcakes are acceptable for lunch when they are YOUR birthday cupcakes…especially because yours is still coming up!

  11. Mmmm, peanut butter and banana sandwiches are the best! Last time I treated myself to one was last August, after I had hiked 3.1 miles up a mountain. I remember being in complete sweaty bliss while I sat on a rock getting sprayed by the waterfall and looking out across the Smoky Mountain range. Gorgeous memory!
