Some of My Bad Habits

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.

Last night, when I tried to overload the dishwasher for the umpteeth time, Mal stopped me and jokingly said it was one of my worst habits. I know things don’t get properly cleaned if I overload it, but I can’t help myself and just always want to add one more thing.

Of course, overloading the dishwasher isn’t a horrible habit to have and there definitely could be worse, but it’s one of the (many) things Mal playfully rags on me about. So, just for fun, here are some of my other “bad” habits.

I leave the kitchen cabinets open.

cabinets open

I start books and never finish them.


I never update my phone or computer.


I open things with my teeth.


Sometimes it takes me a few days to put away my laundry.


I rarely ever leave Target without spending at least $50.



Delicious dinner last night! We had Garlic Mustard Drumsticks.


With roasted broccoli and sweet potatoes.



For dessert, Mal and I killed a bar of Vosges Black Salt Caramel Chocolate. It had no chance against us.


Question of the Day

What are some of your “bad” habits?



  1. So glad to see someone else who doesn’t close the cabinets in the kitchen. I thought maybe I was loosing my mind. It drives my hubby nuts!

  2. Haha! Like you, I NEVER update my ipad or computer and I ALWAYS leave my laundry out for days. I also leave my books all over the place, and I like to eat cookies in bed. 🙂

  3. I’m definitely with you on the laundry… I never mind loading it up & washing it, but I’m so bad about folding & putting away! I also tend to leave clutter laying around (books, pens, mail, etc), leave clean dishes in the dishwasher for awhile and watch too much TV!

  4. I am 100% guilty of leaving the cabinets open. And worse is it drives ME crazy to look at it! I’ll sit down get the poodle all on my lap and notice an open cabinet and want to scream!!

    Also I start craft projects and not finish – currently next to “my” chair – a half done afghan for my god mom, 3/4s of one fingerless glove for my niece & an almost finished bracelet for my etsy shop.

  5. Haha, I’m like you. I never put my laundry away right after finishing it. And yesterday, I went to Target for a couple of things and walked out with over $50 worth of stuff. 🙂

  6. I have at least 3 of your bad habits as well. The never updating my phone, not finishing books and not putting laundry away for a few days. I’ve had clean clothes sitting on my couch since Sunday evening. Unfortunately, most of my habits have to do with cleaning, I am just not a fan! So I will not go further into details, but my home could be cleaner…or lets say less cluttered. it’s not disgusting.

  7. When we first got married, leaving the cabinet doors open was a big thing! At our first apartment, if I left them open, Jared would hit his head on the corners. And at our second apartment, if he left them open, I’d hit MY head! Thankfully we worked on it and neither of us do it anymore.

    I am so jealous of your book habit. I feel SUPER guilty if I don’t finish a book.

  8. Oh man, the cabinet one would drive me crazy! lol My bad habits include: 1. leaving dirty dishes in the sink instead of washing them when I’m done and 2. leaving clean clothes on top of the dryer for a week instead of folding them.

  9. I leave kitchen cabinets open too, and the Target thing…yeah, GUILTY! I also have a habit of not filing my personal paperwork (it sits on my desk forever!)


  10. Haha my hubby always rags on me for stuffing the sink full of dishes, he prefers to leave them on the counter… And I always “forget” to replace the toilet paper/ paper towel rolls. But my worst habit is putting off ironing. My clothes have been sitting in the same pile for wayyy too long!

  11. Have you ever read Haruki Murakami’s book “What I talk about when I talk about running”? I read it on my last vacation and it is such a fun and inspiring read. I would suggest picking up a copy before your trip. You will love the book – and finish it!

  12. I am also guilty of leaving cabinets open and my friends and I constantly joke about Target being a trap. It’s impossible to get out of there without spending at least $50. On that note, you should get the shopkik app. You get points just for walking in and/or scanning items at various stores (Target being one of them). The downfall is that sometimes they message you that you get 200 walk in points (normally you get 35) and then I make it a point to go to Target on that day and possibly spend more money then I usually would, oops! Anyway great post! I just recently started following you from a friend’s recommendation so I am playing catch up on some of your recent posts. I just started blogging as well and it’s still a work in progress but I am enjoying it.
