Cruel Winter

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.

Mal has another snow day from school! Hooray!! But, it’s a cruel… cruel… cruel winter out there!

Thankfully, I have these two guys to dig me out:

Great work! Keep it up!

Somehow, I’ve gotten away with only shoveling once this entire winter. (I actually think Mal sort of likes doing it.)

For breakfast, I made a recipe that I’ve been meaning to try for awhile now: Mozzarella, Raspberry and Brown Sugar Panini. I love recipes that combine sweet and savory ingredients like this one.

I have no idea how Giada came up with it, but I am impressed.

_MG_8736 (640x426)

Amazing. Maybe I will eat another one for lunch?

I also drank a glass of iced coffee with breakfast.

See, I have a good sense of humor about all of this snow! 😉

Oh, I signed up for another race: Black Cat 10 Miler. I know I said that I wouldn’t sign up for anymore, but I have a good reason: Monica and Chandra are coming to Boston to run it too! How could I not sign up for it!?!


Question of the Day

What’s your favorite thing to do on a snow day?

P.S. I’m giving away some nuts over on Trading Up Downtown!



  1. Hey that’s cool about the snow day… ‘cept for all the snow! 😛
    Oh well, maybe you guys can get out there and enjoy it… or stay bundled up, inside warm?! LOL

    Enjoy your day!

  2. I thought our snow was bad! As much as I enjoy the winter scene, that looks wicked bad. Mal is so awesome to shovel you out!

    I am guilty of loving watching all the news hype about the snow. I really love the reporters at the grocery stores making sure that people are buying up milk, bread and all-important toilet paper, the guy with the yard stick measuring how much snow there is and I especially love knowing that I’m inside, warm and dry and I’m not outside!

  3. This Ohio girl relocated to sunny, warm Southern California a year and a half ago, so no more snow days for me. But when I did have them, my favorite way to spend them was curling up on the couch in sweatpants, a cup of coffee and watching chick flicks. : )

  4. I am so sick of this snow! My boyfriend and I spent over 3 hours shoveling to try and get ourselves out of the house. It’s brutal! Breakfast looks delicious!

  5. It’s so bizarre seeing/reading this when here in Australia, it was too hot to even sleep last night! Love that we can eat the same panini regardless of weather, though 😀

  6. I know I only say this because I am not currently in it, but all your pictures of snow really make me miss all the white fluff. 🙂

    My favorite thing to do on a snow day is play board games and drink wine – despite the time of the day.

  7. we like to go sledding with our huskies. we just started training them to pull a sled so they don’t last too long yet (and uh neither do we) but it’s so much fun for that 30 minutes. I figured we have huskies with too much energy and snow, so we have to make the best of it, right? You guys are getting way more snow than us though. That crosses the line from fun > a pain in the butt.

  8. Seriously, I live in the snow belt of the United States, right on lake Erie near Buffalo. I must admit, that’s like one of our snow storms! Sad part is that snow honestly will be in HUGE piles still when it’s balmy out. We have warm spring days in shorts and piles in parking lots that are like mountains still trying to melt! LOL
    We’re used to it here but for you guys this must really be quite a whopper! My cousin used to live in MA and I recall him saying you guys got very little snow. Keep warm!

  9. SNOWMOBILING! I rode 70 miles on my sled today in Vermont. It was fantastic. I love the snow up here, not so much in the city.
