Fun Facts {About Me} Friday

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.


Anyone else pumped for Friday?!! I am. A whole lot.

I have a fun survey below, but, first, some photos from yesterday!

  1. Love these survey’s 🙂 Four things I say all the time are “stop it!” “clean up!” “just a minute” and “you need to wait” but such is the business of having 3 kids! Love those pictures of Q, he just keeps getting cuter 🙂

  2. Happy Friday! Four jobs I’ve had:

    – student (I don’t get paid enough to do homework…)
    – newspaper carrier(it’s so bad in the summer and winter!)
    – uhmmm actress for a school show? Not paid, of course.

  3. You can learn so many random interesting things about people with these little surveys. Thanks for sharing! Love the happiness quote–couldn’t agree more. I’ve been on a mission to simplify my life, including having a more minimalist home.
    Four TV shows I watch (currently on, favorites!):
    1. Game of Thrones
    2. Walking Dead
    3. Project Runway
    4. Chopped

    1. Hyde

    3. Mama
    4. Skeeter
    5. Wild Boar 🙂

    i love surveys! it makes me feel 13 again. 🙂 you’re a great example of me of getting out and getting moving, thanks for that!

  5. I was shocked not to see Ellen listed as a TV show. Q is a mini Mal and super cute. I have a LO that is 14 months and I need to find another phrase because I hate saying it, but I say, NO all the time 🙁 along with I love you, I’m hungry, and come look at this!

  6. I totally bought that same countdown to Christmas at Target! I noticed, though, that the blocks don’t have all the same numbers – so when I got to yesterday, I realized I couldn’t make “35” because the “3” and “5” were on the same block! Is yours like that or is it just mine? I had to jump to “32” because I couldn’t make “35-33”! 🙂
    Four books I’d recommend:
    1. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
    2. Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton (and any of her other books)
    3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
    4. Marta’s Legacy books by Francine Rivers (Her Mother’s Hope & Her Daughter’s Dream)

  7. Ahh that looks like the Davis sofa from Crate and Barrel! If so, I hope you like it because ours is supposed to arrive soon!

  8. 4 names that I get:
    1. Ruthie… come on….I’m not 5
    2. Woof (lol, if you talk for your dogs, r’s are hard…so wuuuff for Ruth)
    3. Beth…for some reason, people used to call me that..4 letter name I guess
    4. O Great Goddess….lol….ok maybe not, but I needed a 4th answer, and that’s one I would like!

  9. This is too funny. I have been a camp counselor (which I LOVED) and a waitress … I am FROM Vermont (currently reside outside of DC) but absolutely LOVE going home. Egg Sandwhiches, nut butter and bananas are favorite foods of mine (plus pizza).

  10. Love this post! Is your first road race with Quinn Marathon Sport’s Gobble Gobble Gobble 4 miler in Somerville? I remember you blogging about that last year. Because I will be running that race as well! 🙂

  11. I had THE hardest time coming up with food I don’t like when I filled out this survey, but now that you mention it, I’m not a big fan of water chestnuts either. I don’t like the texture!

    Aren’t Target purchases always justified by it being a “need”? Haha. Oh man…that place totally sucks me in every time.
