Pug Sitting

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.

It’s just Murphy and me tonight! :mrgreen: I’m so glad to spend some quality time together after being away from him all weekend. I missed my little “fur baby!”

Murphy is already getting spoiled! Look what “Daddy” brought home for him!


Murphy is obviously a huge Red Sox fan! 😀


And here’s some Murphy cuteness for your viewing pleasure:

He chased his tail for a good 3-4 minutes without stopping. I didn’t even pick up the camera until he was at least a couple of minutes in! He’s so darn cute! :mrgreen:

Afternoon Snack

This afternoon, I escaped my desk for a few minutes and walked around Harvard Square. It was hot and humid, so a ginger lemonade from Crema Cafe ended up on my walk agenda. I also ordered an impromptu macaroon.



I had planned to grab a few groceries after work this evening, but I forgot that Mal had a softball game and needed the car, so I made due with what we had at home.

For dinner, I came up with half of a toasted Arnold’s Sandwich Thin topped with marinara sauce and melted cheddar cheese. I also made a “we-have-no-food” salad out of chopped tomatoes, onions, and pickles. It was actually pretty tasty!


I wasn’t that hungry at dinnertime, so not surprisingly, I was hungry just a couple of hours later. To quiet my stomach grumbles, I made a sweet snack: Barney Butter spread on a toasted Sandwich Thin and a small bowl of cantaloup.


It hit the spot!


Murphy just passed out, so I’m going to catch-up with my DVR until he wakes up. I recorded all of the NYC Prep episodes (on Bravo), so I’m looking forward to seeing what the show is all about. Anyone else watch it?

See ya tomorrow, blog friends!



  1. Murphy is too cute! I loved NYC Prep in a “this show is so bad I can’t stop watching” sort of way. The perfect way to unwind after a crazy work day!

  2. That video of Murphy is priceless! I love the “we-have-no-food” salad hahaha! Some of my favorite meals have been on “we-have-no-food” days.

  3. Your ginger lemonade concoction (which sounds really refreshing btw) reminds me of my mom’s homemade ginger lemon sorbet. Whew! It can be really spicy and gingery sometimes, but really tasty.
