Motivation for the New Year

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.

Happy 2013!!!

How was your New Year’s Eve? Mine was a ton of FUN!


Mal and I went to a NYE celebration at a local bar that our friend’s family rented out for the evening.


CrossFit friends!


Kerrie and me!


Dance, dance, dance!


I behaved myself and only drank two glasses of wine, plus a bunch of pineapple + soda waters, so I peed a million times at the bar last night, but I woke up feeling a-ok this morning and that’s all that matters!

Question of the Day

How was your New Year’s Eve?



  1. I’ve been reading your blog for a few years now–it was actually the blog that got me into this whole healthy-living world and inspired me to start my own. I will definitely be reviewing your motivation posts to help me get back on track for my final semester in college! thank you and happy 2013:)

  2. My New Year’s Eve was great. I quit drinking at the end of August, not indefinitely, but the mission is for one year (basically Sept-Sept). I’ve been to dinners and bars, open bar events, etc but making it through an 8 hour pub crawl with no alcohol was excellent. We went through 5 bars in Faneuil Hall/Downtown.

  3. Love that dress! Looks like fun. Great compilation of posts, can’t wait to dig in. We had a quiet night at home in pj’s with the kiddos. Tried to convince them that when the ball dropped it was midnight, even though it was only 11 where we were 🙂 We’re old and tired!!

  4. I stayed in with the parents, cousins and my grandparents…24 and feeling old but loving it! In my PJs and in bed just after 12. Was great waking up this morning fresh as a daisy for a run! Love the sparkly dress btw! Happy New Year!

  5. Hey Tina, I started reading your blog a couple months ago but haven’t commented yet. Just wanted to say thanks for posting your motivation list. I hadn’t seen many of the articles and they are all awesome and perfect for getting re-inspired for the new year! Happy New Year!

  6. Mine was low key also – we stayed in but managed to stay up until midnight. :). My goal was to get to the gym early and I did! I have a tradition of working out every New Year’s Day to set a good tone for the year! I haven’t missed in 5 years now. Superstitious much? Ha.

  7. New Year’s was so-so, but it’s a new day and a new year, so it is time to move forward and not look back. I LOVE your outfit. Why do we even bother wearing heels out, when we always end up taking them off? 😉

  8. Happy New Year! Having to take your heels off is always a sign of a good party! Thanks for the posts. I really need to beat my sugar addiction and get back on track with my eating! Thank you for the motivation!

  9. A big yay for moderation! It’s well worth it to wake up in the New Year feeling good instead of in the dumpy-dumps.

    My family has been hosting a New Year’s Eve party for years and before that my grandparent’s hosted it. It’s low key but fun and a bit sentimental when we all gather to sing Auld Land Syne at midnight. When me, my sister’s and my cousin’s were all young we thought we were so cool – we got to stay up until midnight and get out our best party dresses! Plus, have a sip of champagne at midnight. Now I’m kind of jealous of those who are in bed before midnight. 🙂
