Slow and Sleepy

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.

Goooooood morning! 🙂

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.



Awesome 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! 😀


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 that 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! 😀



  1. I like the standard Keep Calm and Carry On, probably in navy. My roommate and I want one for our living room!

  2. Keep Calm and Drink Coffee for sure!!! (although the cupcake one is obviously great too!

    I’d like to have one that says Keep Calm and Embrace the Chaos for my Mom!

  3. Oh my gosh, these are sooooo cute–I love them all! It would be a toss up between Keep Calm and Carry On and Keep Calm and Drink Wine, but I think I’d have to go with the drinking! A glass of vino every once in a while can’t hurt…

  4. I would definitely choose the “Keep Calm and Love Running” print in pink (although the “Keep Calm and Drink Wine” is a close second 🙂 There is something so simple but so perfect about these signs I would love to have one around to motivate me!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing Barb’s site. I am kind of obsessed with all of them. Whether I win or not (and thanks for the chance to enter!), I think I will most definitely be ordering a “Keep Calm and Love Frenchies” for my office. Thinking about our little monster seems to make everything better. And sillier.

  6. must have the “Keep Calm and Love Running” print…will defintely be purchasing that if I’m not the chosen winner!!

  7. they are all so cute! i would love either the ‘drink wine’ or ‘eat cupcakes’… basically my two favorite things!!

  8. Please pick me!!!!!! 🙂 I sooo want to give the “keep calm and be in love” poster to my husband for valentine’s day! He gas a difficult job and it would remind him of what is important!

  9. Somethings up with your website. I don’t think my computer has changed. Your blog posts now show up way down on the bottom on the left after all the banners on the left side. It takes some serious scrolling to find your post. I’m not sure what’s going on. Maybe your column widths got off?

  10. Keep Calm and Love Pugs, for sure would be the one I choose. I adore pugs and love seeing updates on Murphy. He makes me smile every time. 🙂

  11. these are so cute! i think id pick either “keep calm and drink wine” or “keep calm and eat cupcakes”
    great giveaway!

  12. These prints are awesome! I would pick the red “Keep Calm and Carry On” print. I’m a high school teacher and totally need that in my classroom!

  13. I love these!!! I would say the “Keep Calm and Drink Wine” or “Keep Calm and Love Running.” Both of these have definitely allowed me to chill out a bit in my life.
