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.

Keep Calm Giveaway

Remember the post about my “Keep Calm and Love Pugs” print? Well, the artist, Barb, contacted me the other day to see if I wanted to host a giveaway on my blog and to let me know thatΒ she created a special print for me! :mrgreen:


How adorable is her “Keep Calm and Love Carrots and Cake” print?!? I’m in love!

Barb has offered to giveaway one of her 8×10 archival prints from her website. Basically, you can choose any of her “Keep Calm” prints!

To Enter: Visit Barb’s site and leave a comment about which print you would pick. I’ll randomly pick a winner tonight.

Good luck! πŸ˜€



  1. I seriously love these prints! I adore the KEEP CALM AND LOVE CHIHUAHUAS because I have a teacup chihuahua that has turned my life around, given me something to get out of bed for and aided me in my ED recovery…she makes my life better!

  2. Ohmigosh ohmigosh ohmigosh she has a Keep Calm and Love Goldens print on her site now!!!!!!! I’ve looked for one about golden retrievers since you got your pug one and I hadn’t been able to find one! Holy cute, I have to have that. I might just have to buy it if I don’t win.

  3. I love them all! I wish there was a Schnauzer one, but since there isn’t, I have to go with Keep Calm and Drink Wine. I think the two go hand and hand very nicely. πŸ™‚ I also like the running one because if it weren’t for running I would totally have a nervous breakdown. πŸ™‚

  4. I’m not gonna lie, I’m too impatient so I just bought the Keep Calm and Love Pugs because there was only one left! I just love it too much!

  5. “Keep Calm & Carry On” definitely. It sounds so simple!
    I also have a question on how you have your coffee (I know you get a lot of comments on this). I’ve seen on your blog that you have made your coffee with regular cow’s non-fat milk sometimes but other times have it with soy-milk. So I was wondering what the difference was (maybe the soy-milk when out at fast-food places like starbucks/dunkin donuts or just what container you had available at home?). Thanks so much! Love your blog!

  6. First of all, I thought “Keep calm and love running” being a runner and all… but then I saw the “Keep calm and eat cupcakes!” and that one would totally be it!!

  7. I would pick the “Be Calm and Love”. It’s so true – our friends and family are really the most important things in our lives. Everything else is so trivial!

  8. These prints are so cute! I especially love the “Keep Calm and Love Running” print; it would be a colorful addition to my cubicle! This is going to be a crazy year for me: I finished grad school a few weeks ago, I got a promotion this week (read: I’m straddling two jobs), and I’m getting married in May. The only way I am holding it all together is by (trying) to stay calm and honoring my “me time” by running!

  9. I would have to pick the “Keep calm and love running” mostly because even if im having the worst day of my life I know that if I can just make it to my daily run I will find my sanity again!

  10. Definitely the blue keep calm and carry on, LOVE these prints! Wish she would make one with a Chihuahua on it!:)

  11. I would LOVE the Keep Calm and Love Pugs print!!!!!

    Pugs are my fav dog, and as soon as I am no longer on a student budget there will be one of these little guys in my life (rescued of course <3 )

  12. I LOVE The Keep Calm and Love Labs one. I LOVE Labs and I am moving into a new apartment in June in NC (from Maine)..I could design my room or something by this poster!! *Squeals in delight

  13. I definitely think the red Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes sign would look so awesome in my kitchen. And I really want to try one of those cookies.

  14. They are all so awesome it’s really hard to choose but if if comes down to it… I’d probably have to go with “Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes”. Couldn’t’ve said it better myself!

  15. They are all adorable, but I would definitely pick the pink “Keep Calm and Love Pugs” because pugs are my favourite breed! I am obsessed with everything that has to do with pugs and I can’t wait to graduate, start my career and have my own pug :)!!

  16. i love the cupcakes one! i would put it in my office because that is definitely our motto here with two great cupcake places down the street!
