Home, Finally

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.

I was a bit worried when I opened my front door on the way to the home inspection this morning. Thunder, lightning, and a DOWNPOUR!!! I thought it might be a sign. Rain is good luck on your home inspection day, right?


Eventually, the rain stopped, the sun came out, and the home inspection was completed. It went better than the last one, but Mal and I still have a few “concerns” about the house. Hopefully, we can work them out with the sellers.


As soon as I arrived home, I immediately started making lunch. The other day, I found a recipe for Portobello Mushroom Burgers, which sounded delicious and super easy to make, so I whipped one up for lunch this afternoon.


I added mozzarella cheese and arugula to a couple of toasted Sandwich Thins and placed the portobello mushroom inside. It was an amazing sandwich!


After lunch, I satisfied my sweet tooth with a Peanut Choco bar.



After lunch, I took Murphy for his long walk of the day. We walked about 2.5 miles in an hour and (he) met two dogs, peed 3 times, and sniffed 129 tress/bushes.

Then, I dropped Murphy at home and went to the gym. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, followed by a quickie Body Pump workout.

Body Pump Express

I worked each muscle group by doing continuous reps for two minutes straight and then moved immediately to the next exercise without resting. I used three sets of dumbbells for this workout: 7.5 lbs, 10 lbs, and 12.5 lbs. Be sure to chose a weight that will fatigue your muscles after about 60-90 second of continuous movement.

  • Squats
  • Chest (1 minute Chest Press + 1 minute Chest Fly)
  • Back (Single Arm Row – 1 minute each side)
  • Triceps (Single Arm Extensions – 1 minute each side)
  • Biceps
  • Lunges (Alternating Lunges)
  • Shoulders (1 minute Lateral Raises + 1 minute Shoulder Press)
  • Abs (various on stability ball)

If you’re unsure of any of the exercises, search YouTube for video demonstrations. They’re really helpful. And if anything is unclear, please don’t hesitate to contact me.


As an afternoon snack, I ate a banana, but I am still craving something else. Maybe a scoop of peanut butter will do the trick?


Catching up with work and then starting on dinner! I’m hungry!
