Glued to My Laptop

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.

After breakfast, I spent the rest of the morning glued to my laptop. I actually accomplished quite a bit in a short amount of time, which actually surprised me. Usually, I am easily distracted!


Mal had some grading to do for school, so he suggested that we work together at Cafe Arpeggio right down the street. I was all about getting out of the house and having a mini brain break, so I packed-up my laptop and walked over with him.

I sipped on a Snickerdoodle coffee while I worked. It was delish! I also busted out my Health post in no time!

After working diligently for almost 2 hours, Mal and I headed home for lunch, which included:

Carrots sticks and a pickle:


Half of a ham and Dubliner cheese sandwich on Nature’s Pride bread:


And Sweet Potato and Taro chips on the side.


A little while later, I craved something sweet, so I spread peanut butter on a piece of Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bread. It hit the spot. 😀


Oldies, but Goodies

I love stumbling across old blog posts that I’ve written. Usually, I forget all about them until I see them again, and then the memories come rushing back. Each time, it’s like a trip down memory lane.

Here are a few oldies, but goodies:

We’re having friends over to watch the Pats game this afternoon, so I’m thinking about baking a treat (perhaps some cookies?) for our guests. I wonder if I can throw together something delicious with what we have in the house? I always love a challenge! 😉



  1. I bet the snickerdoodle coffee tastes great, but I bet it smells even better.

    I love football Sundays. I can’t wait to hear what you come up with in the kitchen!

  2. Whenever I see pickles on someone’s blog, I’m reminded about how much I love them! Why don’t I buy them!?

    Arpeggio looks so cute. My sister lives in Southie (near East 6th/L Street) and I’m always on the lookout for new places to visit!

  3. I hope you know that I am obsessed with your blog. You are such an inspiration! You aren’t 100% about your diet because you are real. Couldn’t stop clicking the links to your old entries! My have things changed! BTW reading this as I work. 😛

  4. Thanks for posting the old links – I love the christmas wrapping idea! I tried to wrap gifts in paper grocery bags a couple of years ago and it was kind of difficult – I think they’re a little too thick. But the store shopping bags, I think, would work much better!

  5. Being a “newer” reader I really liked reading some of your older posts, particularly the post about your mom’s job. Also, snickerdoodle coffee sounds *amazing*!

  6. Aw, I was reading your “So you want to start a blog” post earlier this week! It was nice to read some pointers from a pro even though I’m not completely new to this 🙂

  7. The great thing about cookies is that you can make them out of anything!

    Um does finishing New Moon count as productive? If so I was insanely productive today 😉

  8. My favorite posts of yours are when you go out to restaurants or out on the town. I live in Boston and I’ve found quite a few restaurants I’d never heard of from your blog. I also just like seeing what people order…is that weird?
