Exciting news! Carrots ”˜N’ Cake was nominated for “Best Healthy Eating Blog” at Fitness Magazine! Woohoo! What an honor. If you have a minute, I’d LOVE for you to vote for CNC. It only takes a few seconds! Pretty please? Breakfast I woke up craving nut butter this morning, so I toasted up a couple of gluten-free waffles (FYI: the Nature’s Path brand is amazingly delicious) and spread Teddie peanut butter on one and Barney…

Two things I really love in life: pugs and teachers— specifically Murphy and Mal! 😉 Serious pug love. (Mal didn’t want to be on the blog today. :-?) Snack After my weirdo massage, I spent the afternoon catching up with emails and working on my various freelance articles for the week. While working away, I snacked on a Healthy Carrot Cake Power Scuffin. (It was really tough to do, but I saved the last scuffin for…

Something crazy happened at Body Pump tonight: I increased my weight on biceps to 23 pounds!!! Ok, this probably doesn’t blow your mind at all, but this is a huge deal for me. I’ve been taking Body Pump classes, 2-3 times per week, for nearly 7 months now, but I have yet to increase my weight on biceps. It’s the only muscle group where I haven’t made progress. Before the biceps track started, Mal saw…

Good morning and happy Monday! 😀 The weather is gorgeous here in Boston today. It’s almost fall-like with the sun shining and a cool breeze. It was the perfect morning to sleep in, but, for some reason, it gave me energy to start my day. The thought of overnight oats waiting in my refrigerator helped too! 😉 In the mix: 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats 1/4 cup French Vanilla Mad Hectic oatmeal 1/2 cup vanilla soy…

As you probably know, my husband thinks pug meat is delicious. Apparently, Murphy does too! 😉 Check out what Murphy got a hold of this morning. It’s the little stuffed pug that sits on our bed. (My webmaster gave it to me long before Murphy came into my life.) A pug eating a pug. Isn’t that pug cannibalism? The whole situation was pretty funny. Murphy knew that he wasn’t supposed to have the stuffed pug…

Good morning! How’d you sleep last night? I woke up totally exhausted this morning, but I have no idea why. I don’t remember having a rough night of sleep and I went to bed at my normal bedtime. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. It’s strange how that happens, huh? I’m just glad to have my morning iced coffee in hand! 😉 Breakfast Once again, I rocked the overnight oats for…

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!! Murphy had so much fun yesterday, he’s dog tired this morning. (My husband is pretty exhausted, too.) I, however, am an early riser, so I popped out of bed before 7:00 today. Plus, it’s the 4th of July! Wake up, boys!! As soon as I got up, I chugged some water, threw on my running gear, and headed out for a 5-mile run. I ran a new route this morning, which was…

This morning was all about the B’s! 😎 Before my workout this morning, I snacked on a toasted piece of Fruit & Nut Manna Bread with Barney Butter. Workout At 7:30 this morning, Dave and Marie picked up Mal and me up for Body Pump at the gym. Our gym has holiday hours this weekend, so our class got off to a late start. (I think someone forgot to open the club this morning! 😳 ) Body…

I love bright, bold colors, especially when it comes to fresh flowers! I also love these colors when it comes to decorating my home as seen here, here, and here. However, when it comes to what I wear, I often pick neutral colors. I typically wear black with gray, hunter green, and navy thrown into the mix. But, ever since Murphy came into my life, I’ve tried to expand my color pallet. If you own…

Good morning! So, last night, I realized that I have a weird bedtime ritual. Before I get into bed, I need to close all of the closets in the apartment. For some reason, I feel like I can’t sleep soundly if they are open. Weird, right? This weird-o habit probably goes back to my “monster in the closet” days as a kid. Of course, my husband finds it entertaining to watch me walk around the…

Goooood morning! I’m so glad that I went to bed early last night. It made getting up before the crack of dawn so much easier this morning! Luckily, I had just the thing to get me moving: Hayes Valley Espresso from Blue Bottle Coffee Co. Blue Bottle Coffee is bad-ass. It’s super dark and seriously bold– it’ll put hair on your chest! I’ve been obsessed with it ever since I first tried it in San…

Good morning, bloggies! It’s a cold, rainy morning here, so it was tough getting out of bed at 5 AM to write. I really wanted to stay in bed, under the covers, and cuddle with my husband and my pup, but my unfinished first draft was calling my name. Word by word. Breakfast About an hour after waking, it was time for breakfast. I made a wonderful batch of blueberry-walnut oats, topped with a big…

This afternoon, Murphy and I enjoyed a wonderful walk together. I didn’t walk him; we walked together. 😉 Murph and I are both diggin’ our new neighborhood. I love it because it’s peaceful and there’s lots of space… and there isn’t garbage (and dog poop) all over the place. Murphy loves it because there are so many sticks! In fact, there are so many that he can’t decide which one he wants! (This usually interferes…

Happy Monday! 😎 I had all of these great plans for this morning, such as going to the gym and visiting a new cafe for breakfast, but instead, I slept in and bummed around the apartment. Oh, well. I might as well save my energy for the Big Apple! 😉 Breakfast The selection of fruits and vegetables in my refrigerator was pretty much non-exist, except for a pathetic-looking bag of spinach. I didn’t have many…

My middle name is “Productive” today! I checked-off almost everything on my To List, including a 6-mile run and 4 loads of laundry. Awesome! The only task that I wasn’t able to complete was buying a new printer cartridge. None of the probable places in Southie sold the kind that I needed. Oh well. I guess a trip to Best Buy is on my list for tomorrow. After running on the treadmill at the gym,…
