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.

Anyone else having problems with Carrots ‘N’ Cake today? I just spent WAY too much time waiting for my provider ( to “establish a database connection.” It seems like this little “issue” happens much too often for my liking! 👿

I had snapped a number of bright and colorful photos of today’s lunch, but since my hour break is ending in about 10 minutes, I need to speed right through it.

Lunch recap:

  • Raw veggies (carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, broccoli, and green peppers)
  • Homemade hummus
  • Red grapes
  • Mocha-walla Odwalla bar, which was AWE-SOME. The flavor and texture sort of reminded me of a brownie, but in bar form and a tad drier.
  • 2 dark chocolate Adora disks–  guess I was craving chocolate this morning?

(I’m glad that I prepared this part of the post earlier this morning!)

Bonus Question of the Day

When was the last time you tried a new fitness activity? What did you do?



  1. Sorry you’re having problems! It initially gave me a database error but then refreshed and was normal. I’ve been trying to combine activities with my husband and my “workouts” so we’ve been golfing and ice skating recently. 🙂

  2. it took me awhile for the page to fully load. I added track workouts to my running and i find them…well, not so fun! but helpful overall.

  3. Well you sure got your daily calcium today! I love the Adora disks, they taste just like dark chocolate candy – its amazing!

    I can’t even remember the last new fitness activity I tried. Probably indoor rock climbing but that was all the way back in September!

  4. I tried indoor rock climbing also back at the beginning of April. It was fun and challenging, although I’m not finding myself being drawn back to it much these days.

  5. sorry about the computer problems!

    spinning was my last new activity – i loved it! too bad we can’t afford to keep our gym membership right now :\

  6. i’m starting a whole new routine tonight! i stumbled upon a website with a ton of videos!
    i’m REALLY excited to workout tonight and that’s a good thing!

  7. A couple weeks ago, I did the rowing machine at the gym, it was a nice change up and a good workout!

  8. The page was taking a long time to load this morning, but seems better now, at nearly 5pm EST. A few months ago I took a spinning class and really liked it, but the friend I was working out with didn’t, so I didn’t go back. The gym is near where I used to work, and it’s not near my house, but I’d definitely be up for doing it again.

  9. That Odwalla bar sounds incredible! I love mocha anything! Sorry about the frustrations with the website!!

  10. Eek hope the bugs get worked out!

    I recently started doing Shred, too. It’s definitely different! Especially now in level 2.

    I also kind of did Bikram yoga. I say kind of because the room was only about 80*. Still interesting, though!

  11. Yoga was the last fitness venture and I haven’t been doing it even though I really need to. When summer comes it’s easier to try new classes at the gym. All I ever do is run.

  12. I tried Power Yoga about a month ago and now I’m addicted! I wish I could go every day. Also I’m getting back into hiking, so fun!

  13. I didn’t have any troubles with your site so I think the bugs must have worked themselves out! I NEED a new exercise routine/activity. I am kind of in a rut right now :/

  14. Gotta try that Odwalla!

    I’m trying a new program next week…it’s called ChaLEAN extreme. It’s from the same company that makes P90X. I’m excited!

  15. I have that mocha-walla bar in my stash too–can’t wait to try if after your review!

    The last new fitness activity I tried was kayaking last summer. Fortunately, I didn’t have any capsizing issues, so I had a blast, and it was a great workout. I hope to do it again this summer!

  16. I took skiing lessons at Killington in March – I FINALLY learned how to ski and it felt great! I was super sore the next day and couldn’t believe how many muscles I worked while having so much fun!

  17. Re: Workers snacking more, gaining weight – I love how they grab a stock photo of a random obese woman’s behind to accompany this story, lol! She didn’t get that way since the media started playing the downturn of the economy! That took a while…
