Tuesday: Happiness Is…

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.

Mal and his “face twin” during tummy time. I have so much love for these two and, boy, do they make me happy. They are pretty darn cute too.

Almond butter and banana. Best combo ever. It never gets old.


CrossFit! Duh. I did this workout L2.5 (45 pounds for OHS) and finished in 17:25. My double unders suprisingly weren’t terrible!

New iced coffee flavors. Marylou’s always has something new and exciting, which makes their iced coffee even more fun for me! #icedcoffeeaddict

Post-WOD endorphins and iced coffee. Yup. Both make me a very happy camper!

“Garbage salads.” A little of this… a little of that… random leftovers make the best salads.

Mustard as salad dressing. Love it!


Snacks! All the snacks! Yesssssss! I love snacks. Snacks, snacks, snacks!

Blue hydrangeas from our backyard. So pretty!

BLT with a fried egg. Delicious!! Mal ate leftover stir fry for dinner and was so jealous of my sandwich!


Question of the Day

Your turn! Happiness is”¦



  1. Happiness today is a new pair of linen pants and a Tommy Bahama candle that smells like Hawaii. Oh and sleep. Like I’m really excited to go to sleep tonight! And brownies. And Pure Barre. I think that’s it. Oh and cupcakes that someone brought to work.

  2. I never knew it until today, but I learned happiness from one of your tricks. For my afternoon snack, I microwaved almond butter with blueberries and strawberries and put the wonderful mix on top of toasted Ezekiel bread. Holy goodness!

  3. Getting to see one of my best friends today – haven’t seen her in a year and a half!!!!

    Where did you get that headband? Love it!

  4. Happiness is…(at the moment) passing all the beautiful crape myrtle trees on my walk to work in the morning with the sun beaming down.

  5. Agree on the post workout endorphin high! On that note, I’m curious how you’ve gone resuming Crossfit? The reason I ask is I’ve just taken a month or so off exercise due to illness and I’m very nervous about how much fitness I’ve lost. How have you motivated yourself when things that were once effortless are difficult (if this is the case). Perhaps a future post 🙂

    Chocolate raspberry decaf iced coffee sounds delicious!!!

  6. Happiness is just doing what you enjoy! Even just waking up in the morning to a sunny day can make me happy.

  7. Happiness is an impromptu Sunday morning beach trip – made even better with a refreshing mimosa 🙂

    If you like the Blue Diamond honey roasted almonds keep an eye out for their new honey roasted cinnamon almonds, they are even more amazing!

  8. JJ Grey & Mofro, a local FL band I have been in love with since I was 16 are coming to PA in August for a music festival I’m going to. I’m literally so happy I could cry over it!

  9. Happiness is the moment I get home from work and my baby’s face lights up. I love that you’ve been posting WODs – they motivate me to do some new workouts during my lunch hour. I just take from them what I can – I loved Mac and Cheese!

  10. Totally agree on the post-workout endorphins! I’m also finding that happiness is also a puppy sleeping in your lap while you catch up on all the blogs you’ve missed lately. I just brought home a little guy last week, and he’s so much fun.
