HLS Kick-Off

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 and Murphy played all day long yesterday. So, by 9:00 last night, the two of them were passed out! Apparently, they weren’t nearly as excited as me about the Healthy Living Summit! :mrgreen:


They’re so cute! 😀

Murphy slept until almost 5:30 this morning. He didn’t wake up once last night! The little guy was definitely tuckered-out after a big day yesterday!


This morning, Mal woke up with me to take out Murphy, so afterwards, I made a big ol’ batch of banana oats for us to share.


In the mix:

Makes 2 servings

  • 1 cup dry oats + flaxseed meal
  • 1 cup non-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • Barney Butter


With iced coffee X 2…


Healthy Living Summit

I can’t believe the Healthy Living Summit is finally here! We’ve been planning this event for 6 months, and I still can’t believe it’s really happening this weekend! Ahhh! So excited!!!

The coolest part about the HLS is that the 6 of us have mostly planned it over email (with a few conference calls and gchats mixed in). Pretty neat, right? These ladies have been SO great to work with over the past few months. We talk (via email) every day, so (not surprisingly) we’ve all become quite good friends! I seriously cannot wait to meet them in person! And, of course, we couldn’t have done it with Stonyfield, ZestyCook, and FoodBuzz. Thanks for making our Summit dream possible! 😀

Be sure to follow us on Twitter by searching for #HLS. We’ll be updating frequently! If you’re local (or even semi-local), check out the HLS website for a bunch of events open to everyone. We’d love for you to join us!

Here we go! Let the fun begin! :mrgreen:

Question of the Day

Are you going to the HLS? Have you ever attended a health/wellness/fitness conference?



  1. Murphy is adorable 🙂
    I’m so excited for this, I have never been to a healthy summit before! I’ll be there tomorrow afternoon 🙂

  2. I’m on the wrong side of the country for HLS, but I did go to a health fair sponsored by my local health food store. I went for the free samples 🙂 of which there were a LOT. Plus I got a reusable grocery bag (that I actually gave Graduate Meghann when she came to San Diego for the marathon) and a bag of produce. It was $10 well spent! I hope to go again this year.

  3. I’m pretty bummed I won’t be able to attend this weekend! But after the event sold out and I realized I couldn’t go other things kind of fell into place and now I can’t even attend the “informal” things… blahhhh. I’ll be thinking of y’all at the cocktail party while I’m jamming out at the OAR concert down the street though!

    Um and your boys are sooooooo cute, hopefully you get some good playtime in soon too!

  4. Your boys are adorable. I have pics of Hunni and our two dogs sleeping after a long day of playing except our two are plastered to him on the couch 🙂

    I’ve never been to a healthy conference. I am attending a mini on in September but never before. I’ve been to a few seminars here and there while in school for class though. I’m kind of excited because health has become a big passion of mine.

    Have a blast!

  5. Such an adorable picture of your sleeping boys. Have a good weekend at the HLS. I really wanted to go, but I had already signed up for the NY Half Marathon. Hopefully it’s a success and you decide to do it again!

  6. I’m going! And I can’t wait! This is my first conference like this so I have no expectations and I’m just going to go with the flow. Can’t wait to meet all of you!

  7. i wish i could go to hls – the tix sold out super fast! i reallllly hope it’s a huge success and there’s another one next year in boston again so i can go!!! love the pic of mal and murphy – both are adorable 😀

  8. I love the pic of your two men sleeeeeeeping! I *REALLY* wanted to go to HLS but it was sold out before I got to the site 🙁
    Have a great time!

  9. Oh my gosh! That picture shows just how tiny Murphy is! I seriously just want to give him hugs and kisses 🙂 Have so much fun this weekend. I wish I could be there!

  10. Oh Teen!
    Little Murphy is such a bundle of warm, furry love!
    Does he smell like fritos? I love when dogs have that cornchip smell.
    Enjoy the HLS!
