Iced Coffee Ill Fortune

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.

My morning started like many mornings: I woke up, fed Murphy, and started to make breakfast. I put on a pot of oat bran with chopped dates, pecans, chia seeds, and frozen blueberries in the mix. While it cooked on the stovetop, I grabbed some ice from the freezer, put it in a glass, and reached for the iced coffee in the refrigerator. Sadly, I soon discovered that we were all out. 🙁

I added my oat bran to an empty jar of peanut butter for OIAJ. Mal and I really plowed through peanut butter this week”” although we had a little help from Monica and Chandra too! I ate my OIAJ with a bottle of water instead of iced coffee.

Mal finished off the last of the iced coffee, so he put on a pot of hot coffee for me. At first, hot coffee seemed okay to me. It was a nice change from my usual routine. But, then, I decided that I really wanted iced coffee, and I didn’t want to wait for the hot coffee to get cold. I had a coupon for a free coffee from Marylou’s, so I decided to cash it in this morning.

But, first I went to the gym. I figured if I was going out to get iced coffee, I might as well get in a quick workout at the gym. Plus, Marylou’s is on the way home. I’m all about efficiency! 😉


At the gym, I ran on the treadmill and did the workout below. I ran for 35 minutes and covered 3.8 miles. It was quick, dirty, and over before I knew it. I love workouts like that!


After the gym, I popped into Marylou’s for my free iced coffee. Unfortunately, I didn’t read the coupon closely because it was only good for free a hot coffee. Bummer! I tried to finagle an iced coffee, but it didn’t work. I was still happy to come home with a free Creamy Caramel coffee.

My coffee is chilling in the freezer right now. Pretty soon it’ll become the delicious iced coffee I’ve been waiting for all morning!

I guess my breakfast didn’t hold me over well because, just now, I reheated some leftover roasted brussels sprouts from last night as a mid-morning snack.

Share Your Breakfast

A reader recently shared a NY Times article with me about a program that Kellogg’s is currently running. For each breakfast photo that is submitted to their website, they will donate a meal to a child in need. Did you know that 1 in 4 kids in the US live in homes where food isn’t always available? That’s a crazy statistic, huh?

For those of you who already take photos of your breakfast for your blogs, I hope you consider submiting them to the website. I already uploaded a photo of my breakfast this morning!

Question of the Day

Finish this sentence:

I can’t start my day without”¦

Obviously, my answer would be iced coffee!
