Monday Morning Brag Post

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.

Can we talk about this graph?!?! Holy crap!


I ran 125 miles in July!!! That’s more than a quarter of the total miles I’ve run this year (401 miles) in a single month.

While this is totally insane, I am incredibly proud of myself. I never thought I could run that sort of mileage without getting injured. I mean, even just a few months ago, I wasn’t sure how feasible training for a second marathon would be, but so far, so good! Let’s hope for continued health!


I enjoyed a delicious breakfast this morning! I actually ate a couple of these Mini Tomato-Feta Frittatas for dinner last night, but I made some extras for breakfast this morning. I also drank an iced coffee with my breakfast.

Question of the Day

Share a brag! What are you most proud about this morning?



  1. WOW Tina! That is some amazing mileage! For July, I’m proud of myself for tackling a lot of projects around the house I’d been putting off, and for doing some of the workouts that I wouldn’t normally do (like rollerblading, Bikram, and actually running outside rather than on a treadmill!)

  2. Congrats, that’s awesome!! I’m trying to return slowly to running after an injury, so am trying to not get down about my low mileage. I’m proud that I’m pushing through though!

    By the way–what program do you use to keep track of your runs/mileage? I want a cool graph!

  3. First of all, WOW!!!!! That is AMAZING!!!!!
    Definitely something to brag about!

    I guess I’ll brag that I turned 42 yesterday, and I’m still in one piece, lol!

  4. those frittatas look delish! do you think I could use cow’s milk instead of soy milk? i already have Trader Joe’s bruschetta!

  5. That’s so awesome!!! This heat has been terrible this summer, I haven’t even gotten up to 50 the past three months! I did 100 in March and was so proud. 125 is amazing, esp. for a month like July. You rock and definitely deserve to brag! That’s dedication.

  6. Congrats on the mileage! My brag is that I ran the SF half marathon yesterday in under 2 hours without much training due to a nagging injury. Hooray!

  7. I’m proud that thus far I’ve started marathon training and have lost weight vs gaining weight like last year. It’s all about being smart and accoutnabiltiy!

  8. WOW!!! That’s fantastic!!

    I had a goal of 100 miles in 30 days and I had no idea how hard it would be! I ran my first half marathon this month (slowly!) and went from about 30 miles a month to completing my goal of 100 miles in 30 days (july 1 – august 1)!!! yay for increasing mileage!

  9. Great job with the mileage especially after everything you went through recently! Question: I know you said that you’re getting your training plan every week from a coach, but it seems like you’re running more mileage now then before? Have you liked the increase thus far? I’ve only done two halfs, but I was always hesitant about running too many days a week because of mileage increasing too fast etc, just wondering how it’s going for you (although seems good!)

  10. I started half-marathon training this morning, at 6 am. That’s quite a feat for me, trust me. Especially since it was 85 degrees at 6 am. OH TEXAS.

  11. Way to go this last month, Tina! What an accomplishment. Your total made me think a bit so I added up my training log minus the miles hiking (I sometimes count them but chose to only add the running miles this month) and found something similar: 124.48 miles! Made me proud to realize it! …maybe I should train for something with all the distance. 😉 I’m proud of that number but more proud of how my runs have felt as I’ve been working on my form, my approach to running, and my whole experience with it – been having some amazing runs without fatigue and just pure joy! So grateful for movement. 🙂

  12. I might be a total spaz and missing something, but what makes the frittatas “TOMATO”-feta? Are you using a flavored type of feta?

  13. Holy moly that’s a lot of miles. Brag on, Tina! That’s a crazy, awesome accomplishment

    My brag: I’m feeling really good about my body and what I’m putting in it after a year of being a little out of control due to job change and moving stress. It was like the freshman 15 all over again but luckily without the full 15. I’m back on track now and feeling much more in control.

  14. I am proud that I ran 2 miles today in 24:14 pushing my three kids in a triple stroller (about 160 lbs)!!!!!!! I can’t even FATHOM 125 miles in a month….. good for you!

  15. Wow – that’s a lot of miles! My brag – I set a new deadlift PR in crossfit – 250 lbs for 2 reps!

  18. Hey Tina i absolutely love your blog, lots of great tips and tricks. In January I decided to devote myself to healthy living and have made several adaptions along the way thanks to inspiration from everyday people such as yourself.

    My brag moment is that I have completed 30 days eating only fruits, veggies, meat, and healthy dats (avocado,coconut, olive oil). So no added sugar and no perservative chemicals HOORAY! It was a Whole30 challenge.

    Now I can start to incorporate other food groups back into my diet and see how my body reacts, these yummy frittatas are going to be one of the first dishes I make 🙂
