Traveling Home

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.

I’m home! Hooray!

As much as I love traveling, I really love coming home to my guys. I always miss them so much when I’m gone.

[rewind to yesterday morning]

Monica and I both had early flights home, so we arranged for the Super Shuttle to pick us up at the hotel and bring us to the airport.

On the ride, I snacked on a KIND bar. Maybe my stomach was still on East coast time because it wanted to eat ASAP. I couldn’t even wait to get to the airport! Ha!

When we arrived at the airport, Monica and I grabbed bagel egg sandwiches (at a place with a really long line – we figured people knew something we didn’t) and then hit up Seattle’s Best Coffee for iced coffees. Egg-cellent breakfast!

After breakfast, Monica and I both needed to catch our flights, so we said goodbye and headed our separate ways. It was sad. I don’t know when I am going to see her again.


I thought about buying lunch on the plane, but I wasn’t super hungry, so I just snacked.

The flight was 5.5 hours, so I did some blogging (my crap-tastic computer died after 1.5 hours) and magazine reading (Real Simple and Woman’s Health), and before I knew it, I was back home in Boston.

Mal and Murphy picked me up from the airport, so the first thing I did when I saw them was give them the biggest hugs and kisses. I was so happy to see their adorable faces!

Mal planned take-out sushi for Sunday night’s meal, so we placed our order and picked it up on the drive home from the airport.

We ordered pan-seared pork gyoza.

And a bunch of rolls to share.

After dinner, I enjoyed a package of Peanut M&Ms that I snagged from one of the afternoon breaks at BlogHer Food.

Question of the Day

What’s the first thing you do when you get home from a trip?

Besides hugging and kissing my guys, I open the mail and then start unpacking.



  1. The first thing I do when I’m back from a trip is unpack. Hate clutter and if it doesn’t get done then, who knows when it’ll get done.
