I’ve Got Hoes In Different Area Codes

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.

The thing I love most about blogging are the people I have met. I’ve formed some amazing friendships over the years, and it’s crazy to think that I met some of my closest friends through the Internet.


Two of my favorite “hoes,” Monica and Chandra, are visiting me later this week, so I spent most of the day prettying our house for their arrival. (Mal and I have really slacked-off on the home improvement projects lately.) Monica and Chandra will be our first overnight guests in our new house!

One of the biggest projects on my list is getting my office in order. Sometimes, I don’t know how I get anything done in there! It’s really not that messy, but I’ve been meaning to hang pictures and a cork-board on the wall, plus some other small projects that will help better organize the space.

These are the ”˜before’ photos of my office, but I made some progress today. It’s slowly coming together!

In addition to working in my office, I also bought curtains for our living room.

Don’t they make the room look homey?

I also did a few smaller projects around the house. I’ll be sure to share them on the blog later this week!

I’m a dork, but I was really excited for lunch today! I reheated some of my leftovers from Lime Leaf. YUM!

During the afternoon, I finished off a big container of plain yogurt and then snacked on a banana.

For dinner, I ate the rest of my Lime Leaf leftovers. It was bittersweet.

Dessert was ridiculously delicious tonight. This photo is actually my second serving of melted Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Sauce with fresh raspberries. Holy amazing. I might even go for a third serving! I can’t get enough of it!

Off to relax! Hope you’re having a nice Saturday night!



  1. haha the title of this post had me laughing…and then trying to remember if it was from a song. Pop culture impaired…
    curtains do indeed make a room look homey! I just got a single this semester and I’m thinking I’m going to get me some nice curtains to spruce it up.

  2. I can’t believe you were able to stretch pad thai for three meals. I can never control myself with it!

    Yay for internet friends! I love how many friends I’ve made from the blog.

  3. I feel like curtains are the finishing “grown up” touch to a space . . . sadly, I don’t have any yet. 🙁 Someday I will be a real grown up, too!

    Isn’t it the best when you are totally looking forward to your leftovers? Love that!

  4. Can i just say this title made you my favorite blogger ever! I don’t think i’ve ever commented, but this title is to amazing to not say anything!

  5. Better you putting that as the title of your post than me. Let the google searching weirdos find your blog 🙂 I love that title, seriously good one!

    I have met amazing ladies in the sphere too. I wish I could meet them all face to face, all at once, one day…

    Curtains. Nothing like a little neck and shoulder cramping working above your head for hours at a time installing curtain rods, brackets, mounting them…i once blogged about curtains. And that they were almost the death of me 🙂

  6. I know the hoes in different area codes feeling! Only mine is because I moved from St. Louis to San Antonio so I have new San Antonio hoes, STL hoes, and a few random hoes are the country from college!!

  7. I feel ridiculous sometimes because I’m like oh yeah I have a friend from there, oh yeah and another friend from near there and people are like man you have a lot of friends haha.

    Also I love the new curtains, they do look great!

  8. That is absolutely my kind of dessert! Lately I’ve been melting vegan chocolate spread with nutritional yeast and dipping raw vegan mango sunflower balls into it. SO GOOD.

  9. Hey Tina, not sure if you got your curtains at IKEA, but if so just an FYI, I have been told that the only real way (and the best way) to get the wrinkles out of those particular curtains is indeed with a steamer!!

  10. Am I the only one who thinks the title is a bit ridiculous, and definitely degrading toward women? We need to build each other up, not let men or young girls think it’s ok to call women “hoes”. I’m a long-time reader and a fan of your blog, but very disappointed to see this post.

    1. It’s a lyric from a song. I think Tina just meant it as a lighthearted, funny way to say she has friends from across the country. 🙂
