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.

The day started with Murphy asking Mal if he could go skiing too.  The answer was “no”.  Murphy responded by making this face.


This is a picture of us being dorks.

Yum”¦ breakfast! I ate oatmeal, granola, bananas, and Barney Butter.  That coffee cup is also filled with Barney Butter”¦ it’s like CRACK!

We hit the mountain a little before 9.  I had no idea how to wear goggles or gloves.  Mal explained it to me.  I got the goggle thing down, but the gloves are still a bit confusing.

My handsome husband.  His helmet is hooked up with sweet tunes.  I’m jealous. My helmet looks like I should be riding a bike.

I’m pumped to be on the chairlift.  Mal is not.

The snow at the summit was great, but it got a bit cold up there”¦ and a bit early 90’s grunge.

Legend has it that this bear attacked a skier.  As punishment the owners of the mountain make him stand at the summit and allow skiers to take pictures with him.  He is not pleased.

Beautiful valley.

IMG_0025 (640x480)

It was really pretty.

Until the snow rolled in and I turned into a Tina-sicle.

What a great day of skiing!

Here is Mal again.

We were lucky enough to meet up with some of our other blog friends.  Skiing with them was so fun we decided to take our skis off and have a dance party on the slopes!

At lunch we ate at Grizzly’s (upstairs).

IMG_0032 (640x480)

I enjoyed a Long Trail Ale.

And hanging out with friends. (Mal had no idea his hair looked totally stupid”¦ hahaha.)

IMG_0039 (640x480)

Oops, how did that beer get in there?

IMG_0041 (640x480)

Mmmmmm”¦ pizza.

After lunch, I hung out at the base lodge and checked out the cute downtown shops.  I just couldn’t resist snapping another picture of the scenery.

IMG_0056 (640x480)

The pug was so happy when we came home!  We decided to play in the snow together.  Murphy was very pleased.

IMG_0057 (640x480)

Pug exploration!

IMG_0060 (480x640)

In his exploration, Murphy discovered this tree.  He wanted me to take a picture of it.

IMG_0062 (640x480)

He was so excited he pulled Mal over!

IMG_0063 (640x480)

Then attacked him mercilessly!

IMG_0064 (640x480)

Murphy wins! Ta-da!

IMG_0066 (640x480)

Ok, Dad has had enough.

IMG_0067 (640x480)

To get revenge, Mal tried convincing Murphy that there was a raw-hide tree in the woods.  Murphy only kind of believed him. It’s been a great vacation!



  1. Haha, Murphy has tagged Mal as his owner. 🙂 Those pictures are just too cute.

    And I love Long Trail ale. Maybe the brewery offers tours? Hmm..
