At A Store Near You

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.

LOOK what I found at Barnes & Noble last night!!!

Holy crap! My book is on shelves! Apparently, it was released early!?!

I thought maybe the folks that preordered my book received them before the May 3rd release date, but my book is popping up at stores all over the place, including Anchorage, AK, Concord, MA, and Arlington, VA. So cool!


My publisher has a relationship with Barnes & Noble, so you can find my book on shelves in the Health section, but you can also order it online.

Last Night’s Dinner

Last night, Mal and I planned to break out the grill to cook hamburgers on our back deck, but, by the time he brought the grill up from the basement and cleaned it, it was raining pretty hard. Boo. So, we cooked them inside on the stove top.

I had my burger on a toasted Everything Bagel Thin with cheddar cheese, relish, and a pickle. On the side: kale chips!

For dessert, Mal and I shared a caramel apple that the Easter Bunny gave me.

We murdered it.

This morning’s breakfast was fresh fruit with a leftover blueberry muffin from Easter brunch with peanut butter spread on top. A little while later, I enjoyed an iced coffee with soy milk.

Last night, I participated in my first ever Twitter chat– about running!

On the second and fourth Sunday of each month, #runchat is co-moderated by Scott from iRunnerBlog and David from RunningBecauseICan. Anyone (with a Twitter account) can participate and all things running-related are discussed. If you want to learn more, check out the FAQs about #runchat.

So, I absolutely loved #runchat!! As you know, I love talking about running and learning from other runners, so #runchat was a great way to do it. The hour totally flew by for me! I could have chatted all night!

Question of the Day

What subject could you talk for hours and hours and never get bored?



  1. I love the blog and thought you would like to know that your book is also available in England and i am waiting for my copy. i can’t wait.

  2. I can not even imagine how amazing it must feel to see your book at barnes and nobles! I bet its crazy , amazing, and you must feel so proud!

    Congrats again!

  3. yea i went to pre order it over a week ago and they handed it to me at BN! i have already finished it before it was even supposed to be released
    they told me that publishers sometimes send them out early if they arent a highly awaited international release ie…….. HARRY POTTER
    maybe your second one will sell as many as JK Rowling?! 🙂
    WAY to go i LOVE the book!

  4. I could talk all day about: travel, food, clothes, writing/editing, plans for the future, decorating.

    Congratulations on your book! That’s seriously so exciting! I will definitely try to swing by B&N to grab a copy 🙂

  5. Congrats on your book! Publishers have books printed about a month before the release date so that they can get books distributed across the country in time for the release date. For books without spoilers (aka, not Harry Potter), they’ll start stocking the shelves as soon as they get them 🙂 So cool to see it in stores!

  6. I can’t even imagine the feeling of seeing your book at the bookstore for the first time! You famous, girl.
    What subject could you talk for hours and hours and never get bored? Right now I’m doing “biggest loser” at work and I could talk about it all day.
