In My Hands

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.

Look what arrived in the mail today!!!!!

It’s my book! :mrgreen:

It’s only the “Advanced Reading Copy,” but it’s still my book! In my hands! A real, live copy! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I am psyched!

Mal hasn’t read any of my book yet, so he’s pouring over it at the dining room table right now. He might be just as excited as I am about it!


This afternoon, I snacked on a banana and a Blueberry Larabar. Additionally, a handful of butterscotch chips went undocumented. I love snacks.

Mal and I also took Murphy for a long walk around the neighborhood this afternoon. We had a nice time chatting and planning the upcoming week together. Mal and I find it helpful (and much less stressful) to get on the same page with appointments and events before the week gets going. 

It was pretty cold outside (and I didn’t wear gloves), but the sun was shining, so the weather was bearable. Even still, I’m sooooo ready for Spring!

Speaking of Spring”¦

Check out this road race in Harvard Square this coming May!


The Tory Row 5K was designed by a runner for runners.

Jayne, a fellow runner and Tory Row’s Events and Communications Manager, is planning the 5K, so she basically thought of everything that she’d want as part of her ideal road race and incorporated these ideas into it. The Tory Row 5K includes a cool tech shirt (available in women’s sizes), chip timing, bag check, a post-race celebration with a free draft beer, and plenty of eco-friendly porto-potties. If you’re interested, I’d register soon. This race will sell out!



  1. We can’t wait for your book! I already pre-ordered on Amazon, and keep it hush-hush, but my mom is getting one for mother’s day! Your book and your words of wisdom are going to be a lovely gift!!

  2. Congrats Tina, it must feel amazing to have an actual tangible result of your hard work – a book, wow! Those blueberry larabars are so intriguing, I bought one but lost it and am so stubborn that I’m determined to not buy another one until I find it. Rarr.

  3. OMG!!! I’m so excited…can’t wait to get my copy!! I pre-ordered it from Barnes and Noble. Are you doing a book signing tour?

  4. Yay! I just registered for Tory Row. I haven’t run a race in five years…but having one right down the street seemed too good to pass up!

  5. Woohoo! Congrats on getting the book. It must have been an incredible feeling to open that package and hold it in your hand for the first time!

    The race sounds incredible. I agree, that a runner’s perspective makes for the best race!

  6. I read your blog all the time and was very excited to preorder your book today! I can’t wait to get it!

  7. I was excited about a 5k in Cambridge, but a $40 entrance fee for a 5k!? I think I’ll sit this one out. I’ll be doing the Run to Remember half marathon the next weekend anyway. And the half marathon fee is only $50.

  8. I’ve never run a 5K before but the Tory Row one looks great! Do you think it’s beginner friendly? I mean, I can run the whole time.. but just new to the whole race thing!
