Boating & Beaching

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.

Today started with the BEST BREAKFAST!

Well, ok, it wasn’t the best breakfast I have ever eaten (that honor goes to this place), but it was still pretty darn delicious. Uncle Charlies does good work!

I started with an iced coffee with cream.

And, to eat, I went with the two egg breakfast, which came with homefries and a toasted English muffin with butter.

After breakfast, Mal and I headed home to pack up our things (and our pug) for a day of boating and beaching.

After boozing-face last night, coconut water was my drink of choice for the day. The Vita Coco Coconut Water with Pineapple is incredible. I got Mal hooked on it too!

At the beach, Murphy had a little a lot of trouble listening to Mal and me and kept wandering off looking for sand sandwiches, so we tied him up with a massive carabineer and long rope.

He wasn’t going anywhere.

We arrived at the beach around lunchtime, so I dug into my Turkey & Bacon Avocado sandwich from Subway that I bought with my gift card.

After lunch, everyone got their Bocce on and played a bunch of games on the beach.

When it was time to leave, Murphy swam back to the boat.


And Mal helped him in.


I guess Murphy can swim!

When we got home from boating and beaching, I immediately shoved two handfuls of almonds in my mouth. I was starving! I ate a bunch more while I was making dinner.

We desperately need to go grocery shopping, but I managed to throw together a big salad with shrimp, quinoa, roasted Brussels sprouts and red onions, tomatoes, truffle oil, and balsamic vinegar for dinner.

It was super satisfying at the time, but now I’m debating making Banana Soft Serve for dessert. It’s the perfect night for it.

Enjoy the evening, friends!



  1. Sounds like the best time! Go make that soft serve! The warm weather demands it! 😛

    I also really love those pictures of Murphy! He is SO darn adorable! 😀 That picture of him tilting his head to the side and looking at you would’ve been enough to untie him. You’ve got mad crazy will-power! 😛

  2. Looks like a fun day – I spent the day enjoying the beach as well! Looks familiar….I’m guessing the Spit? Adorable pics of Murphy, glad he got to enjoy some fun in the sun:)

  3. Lol Murphy did not look amused with the carabiner on his back! Looks like a great beach day 🙂 I vote yes on the banana soft serve! Sooo good – esp w a little frozen mango in the mix.

  4. (Beware, this is going to sound creepy. But I mean it innocently.)

    Holy buff Batman- Mal has got some muscles!!!

  5. That looks like such a perfect day!

    Also I don’t know if Canada’s Subways offer avocado yet… I hope they do! I’ve always said that their subs would be complete if they added avocado, feta cheese, and hummus to their toppings line up. Now I guess I’m just waiting on the last two!

  6. What a great weekend! I love boating. My husband has one (which I guess that sorta means I do too? LoL) but it needs repairs. He’s working on it and hoping to get it ready for next summer. I better start saving up for those fuel costs now…

  7. OMG, I can’t beleive Murphy can swim! The first time I put Darien in a pool he starting sinking to the bottom. I had to jump in and save him. At our old house we used to have a pool and we would put Darien on a float so he could relax in the pool and be with us but not have to worry about drowning.

  8. don’t mean to sound creepy either but Mal totally looks like Daniel Craig in the first picture…James Bond!! 🙂

  9. What kind of bread is that on your Subway sandwich? It looks way better than the standard rolls they offer up here.

  10. I’m super into the banana soft serve right now – but I add in some plain Greek yogurt to make it a little tangier and for an even smoother consistency!

    Also, love that coconut water w/ pineapple…it’s the best.

  11. Can I take Murphy home cute! You guys had a great time huh- the pics say it all. Great to see everyone having fun. Thanks for sharing it.

  12. What beach is that? We are always looking for clean dog friendly beaches & can never find any! That beach looks perfect!
