Cleaning Frenzy

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.

Phew. Mal and I just spent 2.5 hours cleaning our apartment from top to bottom. We washed, wipped, folded, fluffed, shined, dusted, vacuumed, organized, and recycled. Let me tell you, we did it all, but the end result was well worth it: a sparkling-clean home.

While Mal and I are generally laid-back people, we both have a streak of “neurosis” when it comes to cleaning and organization. We can stand a few things being out of place, but only for so long. Eventually, the mess and clutter get to us, and we go on a major cleaning spree, which is what happened this morning. 

Mr. Mal is waiting (im)patiently for me to finish blogging, so we can finish our errands, so I’m going to speed right through lunch and breakfast. (I, too, want to get going on our to-do list, so we can relax tonight and tomorrow.) 


Lunch was a salad with grape tomatoes, snap peas, red onion, and pumpkin seeds, drizzled with balsamic vinegar. On the side, I had a some pretzels… 

and a peanut butter-chocolate 7-layer bar that our friend Dave baked. It was divine! (Dave, please make us another batch!) 


Breakfast was a 2-egg broccoli and cheese scramble with a slice of toast with carrot cake jam spread on top. 

Con cafe… 

First stop on our to-do list: Starbucks! I’m planning to get a Black Tea Latte. Yum!! :mrgreen:

Happy Saturday, folks!



  1. I have to have things cleaned/organized all the time – little things out of place are okay but once I get the cleaning bug (which happens quite a bit), I’m a cleaning maniac!!

    Good luck with your to do list!

  2. Have fun at Starbucks! I’m kind of the same way – I can let things get slightly messy but only for a little bit and then I go nuts and clean EVERYTHING.

  3. Yummy lunch dessert!!! 🙂 🙂 and wait, carrot jam? 🙂 YUM!!!!

    Hubby and I (ok mostly “I”) did the same thing last saturday! fun times! haha

  4. Congrats on being so productive! I’m the same way, stuff can only pile up for so long before I tackle it!

    Good luck running errands today and then getting to relax 🙂

  5. Hmm…you guys can come clean my house ANYtime! 🙂

    I’m about to do the same thing! Or…maybe just work on laundry and save the cleaning for tomorrow….who knows!

  6. I am the same way about cleaning! I always feel so much better when the house is clean. Vacuuming is one of my favorite things to do b/c I can’t stand seeing dirt/crumbs on the floor. Ahh, gotta love OCD!

  7. How nice that Mal shares that streak with you! Or is it nice? 🙂
    That bar looks great! Hook is up Dave! 😉
    Gorgeous Saturday teen!

  8. mmm the scramble looks yummy! As do those amazing bars! He should share his recipe with your blog readers 😉 Good luck with all the errands.
