It’s a Hot One

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Iโ€™m the owner of Carrots โ€˜Nโ€™ 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 canโ€™t lose weight no matter what they do.

Woo! It’s a hot one out there today!ย The temperature is well over 90 degrees, which is much too hot for a pug! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ


(Please ignore the unflattering photo of me! Blah.)

After lunch, Mal and I took Murphy to the Stodder’s Neck dog park in Hingham. It’s right on the water, so we figured Murph could run around and then cool off in the ocean.


When we arrived at the park, Murphy was more than ready to stretch his little pug legs! Despite the hot temps, he had a TON of energy. (Even after spending more than an hour at the dog park, he’s still running around our apartment! He’s the Energizer Pug, I tell ya!)

After playing for awhile, we figured Murphy would want to cool off in the ocean. He doesn’t love water, but he doesn’t hate it either, so Mal gave him a little help getting in.



Swim pug swim!

Murphy spent about 10 seconds in the water before running back to the beach. He wasn’t a fan.


He gave Mal a little “pay-back” by stealing one of his socks! ๐Ÿ˜†




Before heading the dog park, I snacked on some watermelon.


And some cucumber slices with salt.



For lunch, I threw together a big salad with canned salmon mixed with pesto on top. It was way too hot to cook anything this afternoon!



After lunch, I wiped up some banana soft serve with a couple of pieces of dark chocolate mixed in.


So heavenly! :mrgreen:


I’m away for the next 4 days, so Mal and I planned a date night for this evening, so we could spend some quality time with one another before I leave.

Gotta get ready!ย See ya! ๐Ÿ˜Ž



  1. Murphy looks so adorable. ๐Ÿ™‚ Too bad he didn’t like the water though. Haha.
    Have a fun date night!

  2. I feel ya’ on the too hot for pugs weather! My puggle will just flop on a shady patch of grass and refuse to move when it gets too hot. He will definitely not get in the ocean though (but he will drink it, not too bright!) Stay cool pugs!

  3. Murph looks like he’s having a blast! I wish I could get my puggle into the water to cool off…she won’t hear of it! She’s barely moving today.

    Can’t wait to read all about the Barnstorming trip!

  4. Very nice!

    Maybe I should get over my fear of canned salmon. I mean, I have some in the cupboard right now, but I’m afraid to eat it in any form other than grilled like a burger. Hrm.

  5. Murphy is just too cute!! Looks like you guys had a fun day ๐Ÿ™‚

    That is the best looking banana soft serve I have seen yet!

    Have a great date night!!

  6. Murphy is THE most adorable dog ever. Seriously, (like Rachel) I fall more in love with him every day! So cute!!!!

    That soft serve looks deeeelicious! Actually, all of your eats do…I’m about to copy your cucumber snack, actually ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. That banana soft serve looks so refreshing — it’s become one of my go-to breakfasts recently (amped up with PB for added protein). It hit 100 here!

  8. Gosh, I’m envious of your heat and ice cream! It’s so cold here in Canberra – I’m trying to think of a recipe that needs the oven on for at least three hours so I can justify warming my place up! ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Yikes! The weather here in NC is in the high 90’s and has been for over a week. But, I feel like it’s only fair that you guys don’t have to deal with the 90’s since your winters are beastly cold. There’s gotta be a trade-off right?

  10. My dog Chester does the same thing at the dog park– he’ll run around and play for like, hours…and pretend to be all tired when he gets into the car to go home…but once we get home, it’s like we were never at the park! He just wants to play all day long!
