Sunday Funday

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.

It’s been a GREAT Sunday so far! :mrgreen:

My morning started with homemade blueberry pancakes cooked by my husband.


Fresh blueberries in pancakes are truly heaven!


I used a small dish filled with maple syrup for pancake dipping. It helps with portion control, especially since it’s so easy for me to drench my pancakes in syrup.


I wasn’t really hungry after eating 3 pancakes, but Mal twisted my arm to eat the last one. πŸ˜‰


After breakfast, I hit the gym for some upper body strength training and a 50-minute treadmill walk while watching Millionaire Matchmaker. I considered running on the treadmill, but I’m giving my hip one more week before I test it out with a short run. I miss running so much! Wah.


We had quite a few veggies in the fridge, so a salad was an easy choice for lunch.


In the mix:

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Cucumber
  • Scallions
  • Red pepper
  • Broccoli (from my mom’s garden)
  • Green beans (from my mom’s garden)
  • Hard boiled egg
  • Balsamic vinegar


On the side, I had some sea salt-flavored Somersaults. I love these things! Best snack ever!


Lunch was on the light-ish side, so I think some ice cream is on the agenda for this afternoon! πŸ˜€


I’m on a mini vacation from work until Wednesday! :mrgreen: I’m so psyched to have a couple of days off to get my life in order. And I have some fun and exciting things planned for the next few days, including a Coldplay concert, the Taste of Park Plaza, and a special adventure on Tuesday! πŸ˜€

I’m off to enjoy the day! See ya!



  1. mm .. those pancakes look delish! i made my parents some blackberry pancakes this morning and some mango banana smoothies, but i was so busy doing other stuff, i didnt get a chance to try one! its okay though, i had a smoothie and some other stuff later on πŸ˜€

    have a great sunday!

  2. We like making “special” breakfasts on weekends. The pancakes look great! We have a buckwheat blueberry pancake recipe on our blog that is really good:) Enjoy your days off! I am jealous!

  3. Yum, I love blueberry pancakes! They never fill me up though, so I tend to not eat them often.
    You are so lucky to have a few days off, enjoy them to the fullest! I haven’t been able to take a day off since May!

  4. AH have a great time at coldplay!! i went a few days ago and it was out of this world, fantastic! wishing i had those pancakes right now…….

  5. Mmmm pancakes πŸ™‚ I love those somersaults! But I’ve only tried the chocolate flavor. Can’t wait to try the rest!

  6. aghh i miss running too.. hip pain sucks! i even get jealous when i see people running outside. boo. hope we are both able to run again soon!

  7. Seriously Blueberry pancakes are the BEST!!! It reminds of living at my old apartment when my roommate/cousin and I used to make them on Fridays and then go on a long bike ride……. I miss those good ole days!

  8. Sounds like quite the delightful few days you’ve got coming up! Enjoy! Blueberry pancakes are up there on my “top breakfast foods” list. So gorgeous when the warm blueberries pop in your mouth!

  9. Woohoo!! Enjoy your couple of days off, Tina…you totally deserve it! πŸ˜€

    The pancakes look delicious! I love a good batch of pancakes sometimes, especially when they’re (a) made by someone else and (b) made with fresh blueberries. You can’t beat that! πŸ˜€

  10. I love fresh blueberries in pancakes, though look like the perfect start to a Sunday! Also, those Somersaults look so fun! I’m definetely going to have to give those a try!

  11. What an amazing husband to make you blueberry pancakes!!! I don’t think my husband could make pancakes if his life depended on it πŸ˜‰

    I’m new to the blog world and just discovered your blog…I love it! Is it okay if I add you to my blog roll?

  12. so awesome you get to see coldplay!!! oh man I would LOVE to see them live!

    I’m so sorry your hip is still hurting! One thing that helped me was taking ibuprofen religiously for a few weeks. I took 2 pills a day and I think that REALLY helped with the inflamation. hope it’s better when you go for your run!

  13. Great call on the syrup dish for dipping! I love syrup and feel like portion control is super tough…but I’m going to try this the next time I indulge in pancakes or waffles!
