Rainy Day Activities

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.

Rain rain go away

Come again another day

Little Murphy wants to play.

Poor pug. All he wants to do is run around the backyard (like a freak) and chew sticks. Maybe tomorrow?


After breakfast, I planned to run outside, but it started raining. It wasn’t coming down too hard, so I should have just run then, but I thought I should wait it out. Well, a few hours passed and the rain never stopped (it actually started to rain harder), so I hit the treadmill for a 45-minute workout. I missed my chance, darn it!

I just make up these treadmill workouts as I go along, but I really liked this one because it pushed me to increase my overall pace with all sorts of intervals and intensities. I can always pick it up if I know a recovery interval is coming next.


During the last interval of my treadmill workout, I ended up sprinting at 8.5 to reach 5 miles. I was so close; I just had to do it!

For lunch, I reheated a piece of leftover Spinach Artichoke Pizza, which, surprisingly, tasted just as good as last night. I worried that the crust would get soggy, but it didn’t at all.

Lunch also included a huge-ass smoothie (basically, two smoothies) made with fresh blueberries, plain yogurt, melted coconut butter, almond milk, ground flaxseed meal, and chia seeds. I’m not sure of the exact measurements of the ingredients, but it made a lot!!

This is sort of random, but I thought some of you might think it’s cool.

So, Mal showed me a new iPhone app the other day, and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. It’s also available for the iPad. (Wow, I am such a dork.)

The app is called Pulse (News Mini), and it takes your favorite websites and transforms them into “a colorful and interactive mosaic.” It’s actually very pretty. The layout makes viewing articles quick and easy, and you can share them via Twitter, Facebook, or email. And, the best part, it’s FREE!


Major nerd alert.

I hope your Hump Day is flying by!

P.S. Read this post for a good laugh! The dog lovers will especially like it!



  1. Oh dear. Just downloaded the app. I already spend too much time on my iPad. Thanks for the suggestion!

  2. I love Pulse! I have the rss feed for all the blogs I read stored in there. It is so much better than reading on the web. I like that it marks what you have already read so you know right where to pick up next time. If you have an iPad and you read blogs you HAVE to get Pulse!

  3. Thank you for this and all of your treadmill workouts! I use the heck out of some treadmills while traveling, and changing it up keeps it fresh. I have a bunch on index cards that were extremely helpful while I was deployed, and now I’m living out of a hotel (and its tiny little gym) for a month and I was glad I still had them!
