One-Track (Pug) Mind

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.

Murphy has a one-track mind.

Yesterday afternoon, Mal brought home a new bag of dog food.

Obviously, Murphy was excited.

And, of course, he didn’t want to miss a thing as Mal poured it into the storage bin.

He also made sure to eat all of the dropped pieces.

No food goes to waste in our house!

Once Murphy’s food was put away, he became obsessed with the empty bag””sniffing, whining, and excited-panicking about it””so Mal showed him there was nothing left inside.

But, the pug didn’t believe him, and Mal eventually threw away the bag.

Ten minutes later, I heard Murphy whining in the back room where we keep the recycling (and lawn mower and beer fridge”¦ it’s quite the catch-all room). He was still obsessing about the dog food bag.

Murphy gave it a rest for a little while, but I found him, later in the evening, still staring at the recycling bin.

He has a one-track (pug) mind.

Poor Murphy. His life is so hard.


Mmm”¦ last night’s dinner”¦ soooo delicious. I made Paleo Pad Thai again and added sautéed mushrooms to the mix this time. It was so frickin’ good.

After dinner, I satisfied my sweet tooth with a Godiva chocolate from Jen’s bridal shower favors.

Health News & Views

I can’t believe it’s already mid-September! It seems like I was just barbecuing and celebrating the 4th of July. The summer months passed way too quickly for me, so I missed out on a number of my favorite warm weather activities, including enjoying ice cream at my favorite shop, playing mini golf, and even picking out fresh produce from my local farmers’ market. Thankfully, summer doesn’t technically end until Friday, September 21, so I still have a little time left to do these things.

The fall will likely whiz by too, but I don’t want to have a single regret about missing autumn activities, so I created a Fall Bucket List to keep me healthy, happy, and ensure that I fully enjoy everything the season has to offer.

5 Healthy Activities for Your Fall Bucket List

P.S. UC folks: Doctors’ don’t always know best: Student claims he cured debilitating bowel disease taking up smoking. Crazy, right? This disease makes perfect sense. Maybe I should start ripping butts? Totally kidding!
