Pug Post

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.

Mal had another late day at school today, so Murphy spent the majority of his afternoon waiting for ‘Dad’ on the back of the living room couch. The back of the couch overlooks the front yard and the driveway, so as soon as Dad gets home, Murphy knows it! Is that him?

Over the past month or so, I’ve snapped (and gathered) photos of Murphy at his pug post for no other reason than to share them on the blog. He’s so darn cute waiting patiently for Mal!

Tonight’s dinner was simple, but, oh, so delicious”” satisfying, too! We had (boil-in-a-bag) brown rice mixed with (canned) black beans and brussels sprouts.

I used this recipe for Hashed Brussels Sprouts with Lemon (minus the vermouth/white wine because I didn’t have any), but it’s not THE recipe from Saturday night. It’s close, but not quite right. Even still, my brussels sprouts turned out very well. Mal and I both went back for seconds!

And for dessert: Oreo cheesecake in front of a roaring fire while watching American Idol. Oooooh, yes! All I need is my new pink ducky footie pajamas! :mrgreen:

Enjoy the evening, folks!
