Super Sunday

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.

Hello, hello!

Apparently, I’m a big fan of this post title because I used it back in December 2008 and then more recently in June with “Super Duper Sunday.” Haha! I’m so creative. Well, it was the perfect way to describe yesterday. Mal, Murphy, and I had a super Sunday!


I started my day with a Sweet Breakfast Scramble in an almost-empty Teddie peanut butter jar with, of course, an extra scoop because I love nut butter. And I have no shame in admitting I eat at least one jar a week by myself.


After breakfast, Mal and I took Murphy to the dog park. It was a beautiful morning””sunny, but chilly.

We explored a new path and walked about 3 miles round trip.

After the park, Mal and I ran some errands and then tag-teamed cleaning the house from top to bottom. Around 1:00 PM, we broke for lunch. I had some leftover chicken with avocado, salt, and pepper.

And then I made a mushy mess of mashed banana, canned pumpkin, raisins, walnuts, shredded coconut, cinnamon, and a scoop of peanut butter. Random? Yes. Delicious? Ooh, yes!

After lunch, Mal and I spent the rest of the afternoon working. He graded papers while I blogged and caught up with emails.


For dinner, Mal and I went to Fuji 1546 for sushi. I bought an Eversave a couple of weeks ago, so we decided to cash it in last night.

To start, we ordered pan-seared Gyoza (pork dumplings).

And then a bunch of rolls to share””Spicy Tuna Maki, Volcano Maki, Fuji Tempura Maki, and Tempura Maki.

Extra wasabi? Yes, please!

I can’t even remember the last time I had sushi, so last night’s rolls tasted especially delicious.

After dinner, we came home and made a batch of hot spiced apple cider.

Holy crap, it was delicious! Mal and I must have said “this is so good” about a half dozen times while drinking it.

First fire of the season!

While we sipped our cider, Murphy enjoyed a Naylabone.

A little while later, Mal plopped down on the couch next to me with a monstrosity of an ice cream sundae made with chocolate frozen yogurt, white chocolate chunks, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Obviously, I needed to snag a couple of bites.

Question of the Day

If you could only eat one flavor of ice cream for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Mine would be Kimball’s Almond Joy ice cream. It’s my favorite ice cream ever.

P.S. Anne is hosting a fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy. Please check it out!



  1. Such a beautiful, cold Sunday! Cute canine, too.

    My ice cream flavor (if I HAD to choose one!) would be either Butter Pecan or the Mayfield Cherry Vaniilla.

  2. If I could eat any flavor of ice cream (and gain a single pound) it would totally be cookies n’ cream. I don’t care what brand because they all taste the same. I LOVE oreos!

  3. I sucked it up big time on my plank time trial today. Did it post-WOD, which was 1 rep max power snatches, then Randy. My arms/shoulders/back were completely fried and I only made it to 2:15 before breaking. After a rest, did another minute, then another rest, then another 45 seconds. Arrrgh. Note to self, do time trials FRESH. 🙂

  4. Ooo…that is a toughie. I think cookies and cream with peanut butter mixed in! Then I’d have to get another life, so I could eat more ice cream…
