Mickey Mouse

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜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.

Luuunnnncccchhhh! I was SO ready to eat my lunch today. I broke into my goodies around 11:00, and all was said and done by noon. It was one of those days! πŸ˜‰

Today’s lunch started with leftover Cool Chinese Vermicelli.


And finished with pomegranate Chobani and an orange.


I’m a dork.

I’m heading to the gym after work, and then I have a totally free night with Mal. :mrgreen:

What makes you a “dork”? (I’ll give you my answers tomorrow! πŸ˜‰ )



  1. I think all my cartoon character t-shirts make me a dork, or being a classics major, or having gone to a really nerdy Boston high school.
    The pomegranate chobani is the best! Now I want one…

  2. Let’s see… what DOESN’T make me a dork?! I’ll take a cue from Bethany and say that I like, “Guess what?” “Chicken butt!” But that’s only used with the right audience. I also love spouting quotes from The Office. Um… I don’t hate a good sci-fi flick. The list goes on…

  3. I am a dork because I am a computer nerd. My ten years of working in the “real world” have been spent computer programming. Oh, and my husband and I are dorks because we are 30 years old, have no kids, and have annual passes to Disney World πŸ™‚

  4. So, SO many things make me a dork πŸ˜€ I love science! I even make science related jokes. I am also a “theater nerd” and am obsessed with/know the words to way too many musicals. And of course, the whole social media thing!

  5. oh lord, that’s a question with WAY too many answers! i’m a dork because i’m so completely obsessed with blogging, puppies, photography, weddings, and all i ever really want to do is snuggle πŸ™‚

  6. Oh gosh, what a question. First of all, I absolutely LOVED the fact you made Mickey out of your food, that might make me a dork. I get SUPER excited about the littlest things: watching something on TV; eating a lunch/snack/breakfast/dinner/dessert I haven’t had in a while; seeing that a restaurant has crayons on the table so coloring is an option while waiting for food; cutting my mango last night because I finally learned how to do it “easily”. Last yr for my birthday my bf said we could do anything I wanted in the afternoon…I picked the Southwick Zoo. I haven’t been to a zoo since I was a little girl. It was amazing!

    I think being a dork is code for having fun! =)

  7. I think I’m a bit of a general knowledge dork. Everytime someone at work asks a general knowledge question I know the answer!! DORK!

  8. I make Gilmore Girls references. I laugh then have to explain myself. I loved that show!! Now some of my closest friends just look at me and ask “Gilmore Girls?”.

  9. what makes me a dork? oh gosh! as a parent….i let my 3 kids play in the front yard in their undies (dont worry, theyre all under 6), if they want a treat, i ask them “how bad do you want it?” they automatically know to flap their arms and say “CAW! CAW! CAW!” (even in public). We named them Harley, Axle and adopted an Obed (otherwise we would have named the third Bronco or Diesel….of course!). As a wife….I do the “truffle shuffle” for my husband if I’m ever about to ask for something spendy. I love to sing in manly voices. He looooves my Roz impersonation (the old slug from Monsters Inc.). I can also do a mean Cher impersonation. My favorite movies are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles part II, and Stargate. I took a hip hop class for a few weeks and wore swishy pants and dolla sign diamond earrings. I have large tattoos on both my arms…..I knit in church. I quote Chris Farley a whole lot and still have an obession with all things J.R.R. Tolkien. I always have 75+ books checked out of the library on any given day….I’ve actually hit the 99 book max. before.. you see, thats just the tip of the iceburg as to what makes me a dork. just ask my poor husband.

  10. My obsession with mountains. I can look at pretty much any mountain in Colorado and be able to tell you its name and approximate elevation. That’s a talent, folks. Or an obsession. Or me just being a dork. πŸ™‚

  11. The fact that I am listening to Loveshack by The Bee Bees right now! And all I want to do is jump up and start shimmying! Ahahaha

  12. i bet the pomegranate yogurt was awesome after/with those noodles. i don’t know why, but that is so appealing to me right now.

    i’m a huge dork bc i love all things google, love gadgets, and very number-oriented…and love golden girls. i mean LOVE THEM.

  13. I am a dork because I talk to my dogs ALL the time and I’m pretty sure they know exactly what I am saying. πŸ™‚ My husband laughs at me all the time. I also have a ridiculously large calculator that I use at work that I carry with me to meetings. (I’m an accountant, but the calculator just accentuates the nerdiness).

  14. love these noodles..i need to make them soon! easy recipe and resembles greasy chinese takeout without the extra calories πŸ˜‰

    i am a dork because… i love reading nonfiction books (self-help, cooking, healthy living, business, autobiographies), i played the violin all throughout school from 3rd grade to senior yr of high school (my friends called me a dorkestra), i LOVE math and am the one who handles the bill at restaurants with my friends, i laugh really loud and speak loud when i get excited about something, i love law and order and crime/mystery shows, if i don’t know the answer to something or have a thought on the tip of my tongue but can’t remember i will not be satisfied until i find it out, i love rap/hip-hop music and can rap a lot of lil wayne, i am obsessed with sjp and satc, i’m not a huge drinker but i love dancing/going to bars and clubs… i could go on for a while haha. can’t wait to hear yours!!!

  15. Oh, there are way too many things to list. I read like it’s my job–if only!–and stock up at the library like it’s going out of business. Sad, really. I also spent an hour wandering through Crate & Barrel, buying nothing but lusting after everything.

  16. 1) I am a nature dork = moved to teary eyes when captivated with the beauty of nature while camping.
    2) I am a food dork = always want to know how something was made… I like people telling me about their cooking adventures.
    3) I am a TV dork = I love the sceince, history & discovery channels.
    4) I am a computer dork = I play PC video games. BF BC2 (!)

    Holy Cow! I’m a HUGE dork πŸ˜‰

  17. There are a number of things that make me a dork — perhaps too many to list here. But I wanted to add something totally unrelated — the Back On My Feet organization was featured on the Today show this morning! I was so excited that I recognized it from your blog — pretty cool πŸ™‚

  18. Fun question! I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy… and have been know to refer to it as “LOTR”; I’m typically in bed by 9:30 on a “school night” (I work at a high school, and wake up at 5:30 am); these days, a quiet evening on the couch with my husband, dog, and cat sounds MUCH more appealing than going out to a bar; I’m sure there are many other traits that characterize me as a dork, but I’ll leave it at those three for now :).
