Let the Training Begin

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 was waiting for me when I arrived home last night:


It’s my packet of information for Team in Training and the Honolulu Marathon. Inside was a TNT participant manual, a runner’s guide, ideas for raising money, our team training schedule, and lots of other goodies.

Training officially started yesterday with 30 minutes of crossing training. I guess I’ll count my 6-mile run as cross training! 😉 Today is a rest day, which works out well because Mal and I are looking at a couple of houses later this morning and I need to get my life in order after being away for a week and a half!

You can see the rest of my training schedule for the week here.


And, if you’d like to donate to Team in Training, you can donate to Team Haupert here. (Mal is running the marathon with me too! 😀 )


I slept for 9 hours last night and feel amazing this morning. I’m pretty much back to “normal.” 😉

I started my day with an iced coffee + chocolate Amazing Grass + skim milk drink. I don’t usually like Amazing Grass, but the chocolate flavor is tasty mixed with iced coffee and milk.


To eat, I enjoyed some overnight oats made with oats, skim milk, ground flaxseed meal, honey-glazed cashews, and Barney Butter.


House hunting time!



  1. Good luck with the marathon training! You’ll love it, you’ll hate it, you’ll proclaim never again, you’ll finish and think… well maybe again!

  2. I’m so impressed you had the idea and ENERGY to make overnights oats last night. I did all I could do to walk through the door, throw my luggage on the floor, and plop into bed! Then again, I guess that’s what 8-1/2 hours in the airport + 2 missed flights will do to ya! 😯 lol

  3. Tina it was great to finally meet you this past weekend- wish i could have talked to you more though:( HLS was a great success:)

    i wanted to let you know (you may know already) but CNN did a whole segment on NuVal this morning! The president of NuVal was interviewed and the entire scoring system was discussed- I thought of you immediately! If you have not seen the segment, you should download from cnnmoney.com

    enjoy house hunting:)

  4. Honey glazed cashews AND barney butter? That must’ve been so awesome! I’d much rather that than marathon training, but each to her own 😉
