One Step Closer

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.

What do you think of the new Carrots ‘N’ Cake!?! Pretty rad, huh? I know Murphy likes it! 😉

There are a few minor changes that I plan to make to the new CNC in the next few days. If there’s information that you cannot find or there’s something that you don’t like, please let me know!


It seems like summer is coming to an end here in Boston. It totally feels like fall, so I whipped up a batch of sweet potato oatmeal with all of the fixings.


In the mix:

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup spelt flakes
  • 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup mashed sweet potato
  • Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
  • Chia seeds
  • Barney Butter


With breakfast, I also drank some Créme Brulee iced coffee with soy milk. Delish! 😀


House Update

I have some good news!!! Our offer was accepted! :mrgreen:

Last Friday, Mal and I made an offer on a house. We went in with a really low offer, so, not surprisingly, the seller counter-offered. We didn’t quite meet in the middle, but Mal and I came up on our offer and they accepted it yesterday afternoon. Wahoo! 😀

We’re hoping to schedule a home inspection today and figure out our financing this week, so, if everything goes as planned, we’ll own our first home by the end of October!! Exciting!

Question of the Day

What’s something you do when nobody is looking?



  1. I love your site, but HATE having not being able to read the entire post on the front page. I don’t mean to be critical, as I understand you’re trying to make $$$, but seems like the site is becoming one big commercial.

  2. I LOVE the new header. Great job! Murphy is so cute, and makes me smile whenever I see pics of him. Good luck with everything!

  3. My first thought was oh no! I don’t like all the clicking back and forth. I’m inclined not to read if I have to do that.
    I don’t like it on KERF either.

    Congrats on the house!

  4. Yeesh.. do not not NOT like this new layout unfortunately. The ads front and centre are a bit sell-out ish, and I’m pretty sure you’re better than that, to be honest. Also I don’t like having to click into each post to read it..

  5. I like the new blog look, however, when clicking on individual post, I would like to be able to go forward or go back a post without having to go back to the main page. Do you think you could add “previous” and “next”? Also, a bit of a bigger preview of the latest post on the main page might be nice too.

  6. I like the design, especially the header. But I agree with people who say it’s annoying to have to click to read each post. I would much rather just scroll down. That is one of the reasons I stopped reading KERF.

  7. Unfortunately I think I’m going to have to say goodbye….I’ve loved reading your blog for at least a year or year and a half now, but my blog reading time is limited and unfortunately the hassle of having to click on each individual post is enough to make me stop visiting. I do love the new look – except for this one minor piece. I’ll miss your blog and will check back occasionally, but will no longer be a daily/multiple times per day/phone reader anymore. Best of luck to you in all you do!
