It’s Getting So Close

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I‚Äôm the owner of Carrots ‚ÄėN‚Äô 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.

The marathon is getting so close!! I can’t believe that it’s a little over two weeks away. I feels like we were just signing up for it! It’s getting real, people! ūüėĮ

A special box with all of our Team In Training gear arrived in the mail today.

Inside was our uniforms, t-shirts, emergency bracelets, dinner and party tickets, flight and hotel information, etc.

Wow, it’s really starting to hit me.¬†In 17 short days, I’m going to run a¬†26.2 miles (in a row). I’m nervous, but so excited! We’ll be in Phoenix before I know it! ūüėÄ

My marathon mix includes 50 songs (heavy on the Gaga) and lasts 3.2 hours. I’ll hear songs more than once, but there’s enough variety that I won’t get sick of listening to them.


Tonight’s dinner was a romaine¬†salad with leftover quinoa, roasted brussels sprouts, baked tofu chunks, homemade croutons, tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar.

On the side, I had a serving with parsnip chips.

I did it! :mrgreen:¬†I went all day without any sweets, so I enjoyed two small bowls of Half Baked FroYo and a pint of coffee-chocolate porter. (The beer was my husband’s idea!) Both treats were totally worth the wait!

_MG_6682 (640x426)_MG_6685 (640x426)

I’m actually surprised how ‚ÄĚňúeasy’ it was to hold off those sugar cravings throughout the day. I definitely experienced them, but knowing that I could enjoy a special something at the end of the day was really all of the motivation that I needed. (Who knew?!) Tomorrow’s another day. Let’s hope that I can do it again!

Mal and I are running 10 miles with our team tomorrow morning. It’s the last run with the people training for the Disney Marathon & Half Marathon, which is NEXT weekend!!
