Relax and Run

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.

I love leisurely Sunday mornings. Aren’t they just the best? 

Mal and I have spent much of the morning lounging around our hotel room and enjoying our last few minutes of our Mohegan vacation. 

I started my morning by brewing a pot of coffee in our room. The complimentary Mohegan Grounds were surprisingly tasty for hotel coffee.

While sipping my coffee, I caught up on some blogging. I love this “job”! :mrgreen:

Once I published my blog post, I hit the hotel gym. It had a nice variety of equipment and wasn’t crowded. 

I ended up running/walking for 4 miles on the treadmill. My hip held up nicely! 

Mal and I just packed our things to head home. I grabbed the bath goodies to enjoy later. Do you take the complimentary products when you stay at hotels? 

I’m famished! Time for breakfast! 



  1. nice lookin workout room!!
    I adore relaxing on’s really my only day off 😛
    Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
    p.s I always take the bath goodies lol

  2. Yes! Totally take goodies home…even envelopes that room key cards come in! They are great souvenirs of getaways with loved ones. When I went to the Matrix hotel in Edmonton, they also had Archives goodies. I really like the scent of their soap!

  3. I *love* lazy Sunday mornings, and I *love* hotel rooms, so your morning sounds just about perfect to me! 🙂 A good idea regarding the complimentary products (especially if you travel a lot) is to collect them, since they’re part of your room, and donate them to a homeless shelter. Enjoy your last day!

  4. Looks like a great time! I ALWAYS take all the goodies at hotels, heck sometimes I even take the extra Kleenex box and put it in my car for emergencies =) Hey it’s all free right?!

  5. That hotel gym is AWESOME! Most hotels I stay at have a dinky little broken down treadmill and a recumbent bike.

    I’ll sometimes take the complimentary products if they’re nice and I think I’ll actually use them. Have a great Sunday!

  6. Have to say, for hotel they have a nice open gym! Most I’ve been to are kind of cramped with only a few machines stuck in the corner!

  7. I never really stay in hotels much but I definitely would take the products. I love freebies!
    And lazy mornings!
    And that is quite the nice hotel gym too!

  8. That’s a nice hotel gym! Good job on waking up early and using it!
    I never usually take the products when I stay at hotels unless they’re some cool, organic ones or something. I have too many little samples at home from years of my mom collecting them!

  9. I used to take EVERYTHING from hotels (that you’re allowed to take, obv) but then I had so many stupid little things of soap that now I only take them if they are really cool or handy…we went to Palm Springs and our mini kitchen came with a little thing of dish soap we didn’t use…perfect for camping.

    Oh and umm..when I was in college I worked for a hotel. I used to take printer paper and toilet paper from time to time. Does that count? Or does it just make me sound unethical 🙂 (oh, the things we did when we were broke college students…)

  10. I love the little bottles of shampoo and condition, I only take them if they are really high quality. My favorites are all of the Bliss Spa toiletries at W hotels and the Bath and Body Works goodies and some of the smaller chains. They work great for the gym bag.
