The Happiest Dog on Earth

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.

Doesn’t this face just say it all? I swear, I own the happiest dog on earth.

I love Murphy’s big, dopey grin. It always makes me smile.

Lunch: Part I

I split lunch into two parts today. I ate the first part before my workout and the second part after it. I hate exercising on an empty stomach, so I ate a little something to hold me over. But, I knew a piece of bruschetta wouldn’t cut it for lunch, so I added a second mini meal later on.

At the gym, I divided my workout into three parts:

I love splitting my gym time into smaller workouts. It keeps things interesting and encourages me to work hard for those shorter periods of time. I mean, the thought of pushing myself for 20 minutes is a lot less overwhelming than the thought of a longer 60-minute workout. I also feel like I get a better workout by mixing it up and giving different muscles some action.

Lunch: Part II

After the gym, I whipped up a Blueberry-Coffee Smoothie. The flavor combo might sound a little strange, but it was really delicious.

Mal and I are going boating with our friends tonight. We’ve gotta take advantage of summer as long as we can!

Happy Friday, guys!



  1. Hi! Just commenting to de-lurk, actually. I left a comment on another blog and realized, “Holy moly! I haven’t commented on any of the heathy living blogs!” which wouldn’t be a big deal if I hadn’t been reading for, uh, months.

    Anyway, thank you for all the hard work you put into CNC! and thanks for the pug pics. 😉

  2. You have a Toddy Cold Brew system, right? (I think that’s where I got the recommendation to get one…) Can you help me to understand how you fit that whole thing in your fridge? The carafe + the plastic thingy is a bit much… (and what I mean by that, is it doesn’t work!) Am I doing it wrong?

  3. Thank you for always posting photos of Murphy. He honestly brightens my day every day. My boyfriend laughs at me because I’m always making him look at photos and I’m genuinely excited. I’ve never seen a dog with such personality. I see so many pugs walking around NYC. None of them are ever as adorable as Murphy.

  4. I just realized that I’ve been following your work-outs in a complete different speed! For you 4mph it’s not the same as 4 km/h for me!!! Will keep this in mind for the next time 🙂
    Have a nice weekend Tina!

  5. What an ADORABLE picture of Murphy. Kind of iconic too! I love the treatment you did to the photo to keep the chair he’s in blue and the background black and white.
