It’s here! My episode on Into The Wild podcast is live! Into The Wild is a podcast geared towards first-time female entrepreneurs and those looking to grow their business including side hustlers, mom entrepreneurs, and day/dreamers. In this episode, I share why I started Carrots ‘N’ Cake and teach you all about how to successfully get over the voice in your head telling you “it’s not possible” as well as some basic (but important) small business tips….

Hi guys! This edition of CNC Instagram Live is from September 19th, and I received a great group of questions from you guys for it – thank you for sending! I love having a running list and hearing what kinds of topics you guys are interested in hearing about, so keep ’em coming! Ok, into the questions we go! 1. Is fasted cardio ok for women, specifically 20-25 minutes of interval sprints? My answer: it depends!…

You guys know how much I love activewear, so I’m so excited to introduce you to an awesome brand called ZYIA. I was introduced to by my friend Jess with Be PowerFULL. I’ve been wearing some gear from ZYIA recently and just love the fit, style, and performance so much. So, of course, I wanted to tell you guys all about it and invite you to an exclusive party on Facebook, so you can check…

Soooo, anxiety has been kicking my butt lately, and it’s so frustrating. What’s even worse is that I have no idea why it’s plaguing me right now – it basically came out of nowhere. It could be related to everything going on in my gut right now. (Mind and body, especially the gut, are highly connected AND vice versa.) But I was in a flare for 5+ years and never felt like this, so I…

Hi, friends! Happy Monday to you! What a weekend! There was so much to celebrate, including the Patriots Super Bowl win as well as Carrots ‘N’ Cake turning 11 years old. Eleven years, people!! Isn’t that nuts? I can’t believe I’ve shared my life online for that long. It’s been quite an amazing journey, and I thank my lucky stars daily for such an awesome job. Seriously, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for…

With it being the new year and all, I wanted to share this quote that I stumbled upon the other day. I can’t even remember what magazine I read it in, but it definitely hit home – in a good way: “Sometimes not knowing what you’re doing allows you to do things you never knew you could do.” Great quote, right? And it got me reflecting on how I’ve changed, both personally and professionally, in…

“Busy as a badge of honor.” Have you heard this quote before? Holy cow, I can relate. As a (pseudo) entrepreneur, healthy living blogger/influencer, and mom, I often receive questions about how I “do it all.” The answer you would expect might include things like: “I have an assistant!” “I work on the weekends!” “I meditate for 10 minutes!” But the truth is, my response doesn’t include any of the above (although I’m not saying…

Hi, friends! How are you? I’ve got a post for you today about something that I feel like we all need to be having more conversations about: stress-management. I’ve written about the changes I’ve made to manage my anxiety and improve my work-life balance in the past and many of you have reached out saying how much these posts helped and how much you can relate, so I wanted to share some more things that…

Hi, guys! Today has been the slowest day ever. Maybe it’s because I was up so early? Or maybe it’s because I miss my sweet boy after having him home with me yesterday? We have a “date” after school to get his hair cut, which involves a lollipop and prize, so we’re both very much looking forward to it. After I dropped off Qman at school, I headed home to eat breakfast and then get…

Happy April, friends! Last month was a fun one – despite all the snow! Seriously, guys, spring can’t come fast enough! In March, I had my first HydraFacial at Alda Aesthetics and it was so amazing that even Mal commented on how great my skin looked! I shared some new favorite recipes, including this easy one-pan BBQ chicken video, peanut butter frosted rice cakes, and how I use my favorite frozen veggies to make quick…

Hi, guys! Happy Thursday! Our sweet boy was up and at ’em at 5:30 AM this morning. He walked into our bedroom and immediately flipped on the lights. Oy. I was sound asleep, so I was so confused when I saw him standing next to the bed staring at me. Ha! Once I figured out what was going on, we headed downstairs to keep Mal company while he ate breakfast. I immediately poured myself a…

Photo by Robin van der Ploeg on Unsplash After being less connected last week while on vacation with my family, I couldn’t help but think about my “attachment” to my phone. As a blogger/influencer, I always joke that my job is “the Internet.” I love my job – obviously, since I’ve devoted 10 years to this little “online journal” – but as someone who actively shares almost ALL parts of her life, I constantly feel the need to…

Hi, guys! We’re approaching Carrots ‘N’ Cake’s 10th birthday, so I wanted to take a little trip down memory lane and share some of the most visited blog posts (according to Google Analytics). Some of them are somewhat expected, but some of them are total surprises. It’s funny what the Internet likes (and doesn’t like)! 🙂 With that, here are the top 10 most viewed CNC posts to date! 10. How 3 Months of CrossFit…

Oh, 2017 has been a YEAR. With the way it started, I wasn’t sure I’d actually make it out alive and in one piece. But, I took life day-by-day and managed to survive the roller-coaster ride of running – not one – but two start-up companies with my usual full-time job “on the side.” (Mug from Kerrie at the start of 2017.) Prior to the start of 2017, Kerrie and I had about 30 nutrition…

I don’t know if it’s the time of year or what, but I’m feeling all kinds of anxiety lately. I guess there’s just lots happening right now – we launched Nutrition House Software last week and we’re gearing up for the rush of post-holiday meal plans at Designed to Fit Nutrition. It’s an exciting time for sure, but also super overwhelming. So, instead of drinking ALLTHEWINE to deal with the stress like I did this time…
