Massage Obsession

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.

So, I have a little confession: I have a minor major obsession with massages. Between sitting at a desk all day long and running long distances, my body always seems tight and sore. Massages just feel so good and can’t seem to turn down a good deal on one.

In fact, as of yesterday morning, I had seven group buy coupons for massages in my possession. So, I decided it was time to cash one in this afternoon. Mid-week massage? Yes, please! :mrgreen: Plus, I figured my IT bands would thank me.

But, really, I need to get it together with these group buys.


Today’s lunch was a bunch of leftovers from the refrigerator: roasted broccoli, couscous with white beans and feta, and baked buffalo tofu, which I made for dinner last night.

Tofu is actually starting to grow on me. I was always on the fence about it, but if you know how to prepare it, it’s really tasty.

After lunch, I chowed down on a bunch of Goji Cherry Cacao Cookies. I started with three cookies, but I’m pretty sure the whole bag will be gone by the end of the afternoon. These cookies are trouble.

Packing for DC and then going to a beer dinner with Mal.

See ya! 😎



  1. ah i love LOVE groupon! haven’t seen a ton of massage ones, but bought a hair color and have a facial coming up… oh how i would NEVER buy those things otherwise 😉
    have a good night!

  2. I’m really ticklish and think I would hate having a massage. The whole idea sort of makes me uncomfortable. However, as much as my mind might not want one, I’m sure my body would surely appreciate one.

  3. Hi,
    I’m just wondering where your cute little Murphy pug icons went that were at the top of your blog? I love the new design…but miss Murphy. He is the cutest 🙂

  4. That is the cutest picture of Murphy!!! I love all the photos of him and your food photos. There would be no way my frenchie could get so close with out snatching it up 🙂

  5. I too love love love massages. A decade ago I went to massage school, which was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Most classes consisted of watching a massage, giving a massage and getting a massage. This post has reminded me that I’m way overdue for one.

  6. I feel you on the tofu! I used to love it, had a bad experience and then went off it! Now I’ve been really enjoying it- the key is to cook it long enough so that the outer layer is crispy! I made a delicious sandwich the other day on rye bread: boursin, mustard, avocado, lettuce, cucumber, tomato, and bbq baked tofu- hit the spot!

  7. I didn’t used to really like tofu, but for some reason I’ve been really craving it lately! I saw a recipe somewhere around the blogosphere for crispy tofu and I’m tempted to try it! Going to check out your recipe for buffalo tofu now too!

  8. I haven’t commented in a long time… been way out of the blog loop. But I think I’m back… and I have to tell you I thought of you the other day because Murphy is famous! I was scrolling through Google Play when several photos of a dog came up, and I thought to myself, “I know that dog.” And I read further, and it linked to you. I was so amused!

  9. Haha, I have a massage coupon I need to cash in! Thanks for reminding me! I hope to see you in DC this weekend! I’m not running, but I’ll be there to spectate and am going to the blogger meet-up 🙂

  10. I wish Groupon or any of the group coupon sites down here would have more massage coupons! I’d grab them up too!

    Are you doing a blogger or blog-reader meet-up while you’re in DC? I’m not running this weekend but I’ll be at the water/gu station at Mile 7. Hope to see you as you fly by me!

  11. Pingback: Yes! YES!
  12. I simply wanted to tell you how much my spouse and i appreciate all you’ve contributed to help enhance the lives of men and women in this subject material. Through your articles, I have gone via just a newbie to a pro in the area. It truly is truly a honor to your efforts. Thanks
