Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Hi, guys!

These short weeks always fly by – I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! Tuesday and Wednesday were a complete blur – trying to get ourselves together after a weekend away in Newport and then catching up with a crazy amount of work + a special event at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday. This morning, I’m off to MGH for an Entyvio infusion, which typically takes up a good amount of the day. Tomorrow is a “gym day” with Quinn, which also includes his first solo swim lessons at the Goldfish Swim School. After a summer of him LOVING swimming, it was definitely time for some lessons! All this to say, it’s been a jam-packed week for us so far!

Since it’s Thursday morning, it’s time for this week’s What I’m Loving Lately blog post. I have quite a fun round-up for you guys – I hope you enjoy it!

Signature Fleece Pullover – I wore this fleece pullover ALL weekend in Newport. It’s definitely a new favorite! Mal actually surprised me with it last week – because I hate spending money on myself – but I’m so glad that he did! It’s definitely become a staple piece in my wardrobe!

EverlyWell discount increase – If you’re interested is trying out one of EverlyWell’s tests, they recently offered CNC readers a higher discount at 15% off! If you’re curious about food sensitivity tests, in particular, I reviewed the one from EverlyWell as well as the LEAP protocol – both have their pros and cons.

UA Pindot Open Back – I’m kind of obsessed with this shirt and might just need it in my life for pre- and post- workout! The back is everything! FYI: Some different colors are on sale for just $26!! 

We’re Killing Our Kids and Calling It Love – This was really good!

Overnight Resurfacing Peel – I’m LOVVVING this product! I know that I just blogged about it, but it’s so much better than I expected. It kind of has that “rip your face off” feeling, but it the best way possible – like it’s removing all of the dead skin cells and junk on your face. It really does make your skin so soft and GLOW in the morning. I’m in love!

What’s on my Plate? Low FODMAP Dinner Inspo – Lots of tasty dinner ideas in this post!

Atlas Bars – If you follow me on Instagram, you already know my love for Atlas Bars, which is why I’m even more excited to partner with the brand. I met the owner a couple of months ago, and his story is so great. I love Atlas Bars because 1) they’re delicious; 2) GMO free; 3) low in sugar; 4) gluten-free; 5) the perfect post-workout macro-balanced bar; and 6) they’re made locally in Duxbury! Each one has 16-18g of protein and 23-25g of carbs (depending on flavor), which is an awesome combo for refueling! The peanut butter chip is my favorite followed by the vanilla almond. Mal loves the chocolate, so, honestly, whatever flavor you pick, you really can’t go wrong! FYI: You can save 15% with code CNC on atlasbars.com!

Your Dog Is Probably Dumber Than You Think, a New Study Says – We always knew Murphy wasn’t the smartest. Haha!

Haircuts at home – We finally got sick of paying $25 for a so-so kid’s haircut, so we bought a trimmer kit from Target to cut Quinn’s hair at home. It cost less than a single haircut, and Dada’s first try as a barber went really well!

Trader Joe’s Harvest Blend Herbal Tea – I’m loving this tea in the afternoon and before bed. It has so much flavor!!

Fitnessista Fit Guide: Home Workout Warrior – I love this fitness offering from my friend Gina! This 12-week fitness plan for the Home Workout Warrior is a no-frills approach to fitness! You don’t need fancy equipment to get in an amazing workout – and neither does this routine. The plan includes 12 weeks of workouts, a workout calendar, a suggested meal plan, and more!

Califia Farms Toffee Tidings Almondmilk Creamer – This creamer was a total impulse buy at Target, and I’m so glad that I picked it up. It’s absolutely delicious and doesn’t have any crazy ingredients!

Question of the Day

Is this week flying by for you? Yay or nay? 

What seasonal deliciousness (i.e. tea, coffee, creamer) are you loving lately? 



  1. This week is dragging for me but grant it Monday wasn’t a holiday!

    I picked up some pumpkin spice coffee at Aldi the other day and it is so YUMMY! And anything warm apple cider is delish!

  2. You know, come to think of it, this week is flying by. I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! It’s kind of hard to get into the fall seasonal vibes down here in L.A. (it *is* slightly cool, though!!!), but I have been enjoying the occasional almond milk latte with a sprinkle of cinnamon and pretending I still live in D.C. where we had seasons! – Kaitlyn | IG: @kaitlynmcquin

  3. The fleece pullover is great! I love how cozy and comfortable it looks. It’s just starting to get colder out here in Pennsylvania and that pullover looks like it would be the ideal item to add to my wardrobe!

  4. Our boys get two haircuts at the barbershop.. one before school starts and one usually when school ends and my husbands does all haircuts in between.. he is still working on mastering the technique..
    A Goldfish Swim School just opened near our house.. how do you like it?

  5. You have officially sold me on trying the overnight resurfacing peel! I LOVE Trader Joe’s teas so I’m excited to add the fall blend to my cart next time 🙂 I hope this upcoming week flies by for me because then I am headed to spend a weekend with classmates/good friends on the beach – we haven’t seen each other since we all started rotations (I’m in PT school) so it will be great to catch up!

    I hope you have a wonderful week! Thanks for sharing your favorites 🙂
