Carrots ‘N’ Weights

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.

Here it is: Carrots ”˜N’ Weights (CNW)!

I officially started marathon training this week, so I’m simultaneously revving up my strength training routine. I don’t want to lose any of my scary muscles in the coming months!

My basic plan is to strength train three times each week: one Body Pump class + two upper body/full body workouts, which I will post on CNC as I do them. I’ll publish them in a separate post, so you can keep track of them and do them as you like. For your own planning purposes, you can expect at least two CNW strength training workouts each week. Feel free to fit them into your current exercise routine as you please.

The majority of my Carrots ”˜N’ Weights workouts should take about 20-30 minutes to complete and only require free weights (resistance bands work too), so you can do the workouts at home or the gym. I will post the number of sets, reps, and weight that I use, but be sure to do what’s best for you. In between exercises, I don’t rest and move from one to the next. Between sets, I rest for only about 20-30 seconds, just long enough to give my muscles a quick break.

If you have any questions, please let me know! I’ll post my first workout later today.



  1. This sounds absolutely awesome! Training with weights is much less appealing to me than cardio or yoga, but I know it is essential, so I look forward to seeing your training plans and workouts for great new ways to incorporate it into my workouts! 🙂 Like you say – it’s not extra credit or optinoal. Love that you only need free-weigths – that’s so accessible! xyx

  2. I’m really excited for this as for the next 2 weeks, I have no access to the gym but bought a resistant band to keep up with the strength training!

  3. Woohoo! I really need to get some strength training in my life. Is it going to be too tough for someone who’s literally NEVER strength trained with weights before?

  4. This is going to come in so handy! Usually when my half-marathon training schedule calls for “strength training days”, I equate it with “rest days”. Hmm… what is wrong with THAT picture? Haha. Excited for your upcoming post!

  5. Awesome! I just signed up for my first half marathon so I’ll be looking for ways/motivation to keep up my strength training. My plan is similar to yours (2 free weights workouts and 1 Body Pump class along with my runs) so I look forward to reading 🙂

  6. I am fairly new to your blog, SO loving it! You are very inspiring and generous in sharing info and tips. Looking forward to seeing the workouts. I always seem to need support guidance around strength training. Thanks!

  7. Whooo! I’m excited! Ever since I started going to BodyPump, I’ve been so jazzed about weightlifting (does anyone say “jazzed” anymore?). Bring it on! 🙂

  8. Have I missed something? Do you have any kind of fitness certification? I know that there are other bloggers out there (fitnessista) who put out workouts, but they are all certified personal trainers.
