Slow and Sleepy

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜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.

Goooooood morning! πŸ™‚

Well, it was another slow, sleepy morning for Murphy and me today. I slept through my 4:29 writing alarm and he spent an extra 45 minutes laying in our bed. (This dog is SO spoiled.) I guess we really needed the sleep, right? Maybe some writing will happen tomorrow.



AwesomeΒ 3-Minute Cookie this morning! I love these things! :mrgreen:


I doubled the recipe for a more hearty meal.

In the mix:

  • 1/4 cup MixMyGranola
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 liquid egg whites
  • 1.5 tbsp Vega Smoothie Infusion
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

I spread about 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter on top. So delish! πŸ˜€


We were out of iced coffee this morning (the horror!), so I made a pot of the hot stuff. I added a splash of vanilla soy milk to my mug.

  1. Murph is too cute!! I would loove to hang the “Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes” in my kitchen next to my cookbooks! πŸ™‚ I probably should want keep calm and keep running though for inspiration!

  2. Keep calm and love running!!! I love this print so much, if I don’t win, I’m buying it myself!!! Thanks Tina and keep up the good work!!!

  3. Barbie does an awesome job with these posters. I think my favs would be running
    and love Vizlas. I love her carrot and cake poster that she did:) She rocks!!!

  4. I would love to have Keep Calm and Love Bostons! My family has two Boston Terriers, Honey and Huey, and this would be the perfect V-day gift for my hubby!

  5. definitely the “Keep Calm and Play Tennis” print. I played tennis in college and I definitely needed this as a mantra!

  6. Um,duh! Isn’t it obvious?! Keep calm and eat cupcakes!! If that can’t calm somebody down, I’m not sure what could….extra frosting please!!

  7. They are all great – I don’t know which one I would choose – but I think my top two favorites are the Love Coffee and the pretty green “Keep Calm and Carry On”. That’s always been my m.o. anyway!

  8. I’m in college–so Keep calm and carry on!! Plus I love running so Keep Calm and love running is pretty awesome too!
