Manic Monday

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.

It’s just another manic Monday. I wish it was Sunday. ‘Cause that’s my Funday.


The 80’s were so awesome– especially the fashion! I wish that I was born a few years earlier, so I could have enjoyed it to the fullest. In 1989, I was only 9-years-old, but I had my own “special” sense of fashion. Imagine if I was a teenager and could really dress myself!?! I would have rocked the 80’s style! :mrgreen:


I spent my manic Monday working away at my computer, going to town on my To Do list, and taking care of my foot, which included icing via bag-o-peas.

Murphy and I played a good game of “Don’t Let the Pug Get It.”

For lunch, I reheated a slice of cheese pizza and paired it with a side salad topped with Asian Ginger Plum Dressing.


There was quite a bit of pizza leftover from last night’s showing of Spirit of the Marathon, so our hosts sent us home with almost an entire pizza. Score!


After lunch, I enjoyed four Salted Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies, which were also leftover from last night’s get-together. (I really love these cookies!!) Then, Murphy and I went for his long walk of the day and we made a video about it! 😀

Now, I’m off to be tortured at the dentist! Meh. 😕

I hope your Monday is off to a great start! :mrgreen:



  1. Hehe I LOVED Manic Monday when I was little! I was born in 1988 but my parents had the Bangles CD and I pretty much thought it was the best thing ever. Good luck at the dentist!! 🙂

  2. my SO is a dentist, dentists they get no love :o(
    but he is used to it and just carries on as professionally as possible.
    i hope your feet and your teeth feel better!

  3. Ah I hate the dentist, even though my teeth always feel super clean after. They always ask questions when they have all this equipment in my mouth!

  4. Ahhh, The Bangles were my absolute favorite band when I was a little kid! “Eternal Flame,” was my favorite song and I even have a tape recording of me singing it which I never plan on listening to … ever.

    I hope your foot feels better!

  5. So, I never really got that song. When I was a kid, Sunday was homework, get ready for school and go to bed early day … today, it’s chores, get ready for a week of work and go to bed early day. But Friday night or Saturday — those are my fun days! 🙂

  6. I was all about the crimped hair in the 80’s when I was in elementary school. I can’t imagine what I would have looked like if I was a teenager either. Although some of the 90s fashion isn’t much better!

  7. I just baked the salted chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and am typing with one hand and eating one with the other. 🙂 They’re delicious! Thank you for the recipe!
