On The Go

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.

This is the stuff that I packed to take with me today:

  • Gym clothes and sneakers
  • Shower stuff, including a change of clothes
  • Wallet, camera, iPod, phone, and planner (these items are with me at all times)
  • Lunch + snacks in lunchbag
  • Iced coffee in travel mug

So, why the heck do I need all of this crap stuff? Well, after work, I am planning to hit the gym for a workout, shower-up, and then attend an event about eating local in New England. I will be on-the-go from 7:30 AM until about 9:00 PM.

I have no idea how I used to do this every single day as a student… or even last fall when I worked full-time and part-time (at Healthworks) and blogged, which was totally insane! Going from one thing to the next to the next is exhausting. I don’t miss it at all!

Today’s lunch was leftover penne with Arugula-Pecan Pesto sauce, carrot sticks, a blood orange, and an dark chocolate Adora disk. I mostly covered all of the nutritional bases with the exception of little protein, but I make up for it with my afternoon snacks.

Carrot sticks…

The whole meal with raspberry-lime sparking water…

Snack #1 is yogurt and fresh strawberries, which is a pre-workout snack.

Snack #2 is a Pure Bar, which is a post-workout snack to hold me over until I get home for dinner.

I’m off to buy some hot coffee (maybe tea?) from the Cafe Gato Rojo and then I am back to work!

Happy Monday! Lets hope the day keeps flying by!



  1. The pasta looks great, I LOVE pesto! I remember the first time I ordered it, I didn’t even know what it was and when my green pasta came to the table I was so embarassed! This was in 12th grade, but still! Haha!

  2. that event sounds fun! Enjoy your long day – I don’t know how I used to do it either! I feel like such an old woman sometimes 🙂

  3. I hope you survive your long day. Being prepared is the only way to make it and you are on top of things! Love your lunch! I made a big pot of veggie soup over the weekend so I could bring it for lunch this week. I can’t wait to eat it:) Have fun day!

  4. I’m on the go from 5 A.M. until I get home at 6:00 pm., but I can’t imagine until 9:00, even though I still have homework and stuff to do every night I get home, I need that time to unwind and not have any obligations to be somewhere else.
