More Signs of Spring

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.

Is that grass that I see in our front yard!?! Woah. After the crazy winter we had here, I never thought I’d see the day.

The snow is really starting to melt here in Boston. I love seeing signs of spring! 😎 I also love that the dirty, gray snow is just about gone. It’s so ugly to look at!

After breakfast, I headed to the yoga studio for a 75-minute Vinyasa class. It was very similar to the class that I took last Tuesday with lots of Downward Dogs and poses that really worked the upper body and shoulders. I have a feeling I am going to be sore again tomorrow!

After class, I headed home for an early lunch. I made a big salad with Garlic Gold roasted broccoli, a scoop of garlic hummus, and a drizzle of red wine vinegar on top.

Lunch also included a smoothie made with fresh raspberries, Vanilla Protein Powder, Almond Breeze, ground flaxseed meal, and plain Greek yogurt. I actually ended up drinking two 16-ounce smoothies because I made so much! Sometimes, I am really terrible with my measurements, and end up making way too much or way too little. Now, my stomach is full!

Exciting news: I’m going to Fitbloggin’ this year!! I was asked to participate on a panel about blogger responsibility and where we should draw the line. Of course, I’m nervous because public speaking always bugs me out, but I am really looking forward to this panel. I think it’s going to be a very interesting discussion.


Have you ever attended a blog/fitness/health conference? If so, what did you think of it? If not, would you want to attend one?

P.S. Check out my motivational tip for commiting to early morning workouts on!



  1. Congrats on being on a panel for fitbloggin 11! I wanted to go this year, but I have another conference on that same weekend. Will look forward to your recap.

  2. I went to Food Buzz 2010 in San Fran (and sat next to you on the bus home on the 1st night!).. highlight of my trip 🙂

    Congrats on being on the panel…that’s awesome and you’re going to rock it out and impress everyone!!

  3. I hear you on the whole long winter front. In fact, when I heard the birds singing the other day I nearly fell off my chair. Mind you, we still have snow (poor birds) but the signs are there! 🙂

    As far as a conference, I would love to go to one but it would have to be closer to me in order to be able to attend (unfortunately flights from Canada are NOWHERE near as reasonable as US flights). So unless one of the conferences is held in Vancouver, Calgary, Portland, or Seattle . . . I wouldn’t be able to make it 🙁

  4. I would love to attend a blog/health/fitness conference – just have to work it into the budget one day. :/

    That is very cool that you will be speaking at Fit Bloggin!
