Our New Fence

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.

It’s an absolutely beautiful day here! 68 degrees and sunny. Perfect. I can’t wait to go outside and play!

Murphy has spent most of the day outside in our backyard””chewing sticks, eating grass, and enjoying our new fence!

Before I show you photos of our new fence, you need to see what the old one looked like. It was bad.

Our old fence was moldy and rotting.

And falling into our neighbors’ yard on both sides.

Let’s just say, we really needed a new fence!

The fence guys were really efficient and installed our entire fence in one day.

So much better, right!?! It’s like a new backyard!

Please ignore the dirt lawn in the last two pictures. That’s our next project.

Today’s lunch was a ham, cheddar cheese, and hummus sandwich with a side salad with grape tomatoes, roasted tomatoes, and truffle oil.

A few hours later, I whipped up a green smoothie with Greek yogurt, frozen mango, frozen chopped kale, and almond milk. After a few sips, I dumped my smoothie back into the blender and added a half scoop of vanilla protein powder. It needed a little vanilla sweetness.

I’m off to take Murphy for a long walk and then to CrossFit.

Enjoy the evening, guys!



  1. love the new fence! we just put in a new fence last summer, so i totally know the feeling. fencing is NOT cheap either! i couldn’t believe how much we spent on our’s last year. oh well, it’s certainly worth it ! especially if you have dogs!

  2. the fence looks great! curious where you buy your frozen chopped kale…our local stop & shop didn’t seem to carry it, and i didn’t have time to ask them.

  3. Wow what a difference, your new fence looks amazing!!
    I have tried using frozen kale or spinach in my smoothies and they don’t work quite as well. Is there a trick to it, or do I need to just blend longer?

  4. Ah-the American dream…house, white picket fence, 2 kids (well…murphy lol) Looks great 🙂 🙂

    1. He does, but we checked and thankfully his food wasn’t on the recall list. Thanks for thinking of Murphy though! We appreciate it! 🙂

  5. Great fence! By the way Tina, my husband is stoked that I am starting to experiment with beers more. Thanks for your beer tips, feeling more comfie trying things besides wine and budlight!

  6. That is a wonderful fence~ you’ve increased my longing for a home of our very own someday:) Until then, I continue to enjoy looking at yours!

  7. Looks great! As I looked at the pics I wondered why the yard was devoid of grass and then I realized, duh, they just finished winter! Living in South Florida my entire life, I often forget the change that the foliage undergoes. We always have grass, unless we get a heat wave and a drought in the spring.

  8. Absolutely beautiful! Murphy seems to like it as well. That fence sure completes your yard 🙂
