Rectangle 58

Hi, 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.

Fit + Fueled

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.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

I saw this post on Janetha‘s and Lindsay‘s blogs last week and I thought it was really sweet, so I decided to do it on CNC. The simple things in life really are the best things in life!

AAlmonds. I’m pretty sure I’m going to turn into one at the rate I eat them throughout the day every day.

BBagels. Preferably the one’s from Theodora‘s favorite bagel shop near her old apartment, but I pretty much love all bagels.

C – CrossFit. Duh.

D – Downward dog. The first Downward Dog of a yoga class feels, oh, so good.

E – Eggs. Such a versatile and healthy food. Love ”˜em.

F – Flip flops. I’d wear them year-round if I could. Damn snow.


G – Grandparents. I miss mine.

H – Hydrangeas. My favorite (and wedding) flower.

I – Iced coffee. It makes me ridiculously happy.


J – Jack-o-Lanterns. I don’t think I’ll ever be too old to carve one.

K – Koozies. They instantly make a beer more fun to drink.

L – “Lap” dog. There’s a good chance if I am sitting, Murphy is on my lap.

M – Murph ”˜N’ Mal. They make me smile every single day.


N – Neon. I’m loving the neon color trend this summer. It’s so cheery!

O – Outdoor movies. So fun, so relaxing!

P – Pineapple. The fruit, of course, but also pineapple-flavored coconut water. Best summer beverage ever.


Q – Quotes. I love them.

R – Running. The easiest way to clear my mind.

S – Sprinkles. Especially on vanilla soft serve ice cream. Such a simple pleasure.

TTOMS. After I ruined my first pair, Mal bought me new TOMS for my birthday. Wearing them is like wearing slippers.

UUS Weekly. I love to unwind with an issue of US Weekly.

V – Veggies. Roasted, please.

W – Watermelon beer. I’m not usually a fan of fruity beers, but the Hell or High Watermelon from 21st Amendment outstanding. They use real watermelon (not artificial flavors).

XeXhale. Ok, I kind of cheated on this one, but a nice deep eXhale always seems to calm me.

YYou Have a Choice. Stay stuck or do something about what you want.

ZZero. I love it when the number of items on my To Do list is zero. Not that it happens often, but when it does, it’s the best feeling ever!
