Vermont Is Glorious

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜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.

Good morning! I love waking up in Vermont! :mrgreen:

I just got back from a glorious 5.85-mile run through the Lake Champlain Bikeways, which run throughout the Lake Champlain Valley. Rumor has it there’s 1,300+ miles of bike paths!


Check out the sign that I saw on my run! πŸ˜†



Within minutes of finishing my run, Mal and Dave arrived home with bagels and iced coffee! Yes!!! Best husbands ever! πŸ˜€

My hubby ordered me a Roasted Red Pepper-Asiago bagel with roasted red pepper and jalapeño cream cheese. Holy yum!


It was aΒ glorious breakfast! πŸ˜€


Friday Night

After getting settled in Burlington, we headed to our friends’ house in Ferrisburgh, Vermont. On the ride, we stopped at Quiznos. To save time, Dave and I took orders and ran inside get dinner for everyone.


Mal, Marie, and the dogs waited in the car.


Murphy throughly enjoyed the 30-minute ride to Farrisburg. He loved all of the sights, sounds, and smells. Murphy is definitely more of a country dog than a city dog!



Our friends’ house inΒ Ferrisburgh is AMAZING!! The house itself is beautiful and the yard is exactly what I want some day. Basically, Mal and I want to move in with them! πŸ˜‰







My flatbread “Sammie” from Quiznos was actually pretty good. Better than I thought it would be!


I also snacked on a couple of chocolate chips cookies and cheese + crackers over the course of the night.


And a local beer! πŸ˜€


I didn’t end up taking too many photos last night, but I had a really nice time with our friends.


There were a lot of drinking games going on last night, but I didn’t participate. I’m not going to lie, I really wanted to play Flip Cup, but I kept my boozing to a minimum. There’s quite a bit of beer drinking on the agenda for today, so I tried to balance it out! πŸ˜‰


See ya! 😎



  1. I love the doggy sign πŸ˜€ and that picture of Murphy putting his little pug face out the window is AMAZING! What a DIVA! πŸ˜‰

  2. I <3 VT!!! So glad you're enjoying your time in VT! I used to live in Burlington and you have to go to this amazing restaurant called Magnolias (next to Flatbread on Saint Paul Street). They have the best breakfast and lunch plates, and the best part is that they use all locally grown ingredients! I live in Seattle now, but am always having cravings for their apple, maple sausage, and cheese omelette!

  3. I love that sign! It made me laugh aloud πŸ˜€ Murph’s popular with the bitches (literally!) with those shades, huh? πŸ˜‰


  4. I LOVE Vermont!!!! Vermont and Maine are two of my favorite places in the world. haven’t been in a while, since moving away from Boston to the “other” coast. Thanks for the pics! (LOVE that sign, lol!)

  5. Love the dog park sign!! — I love that you were able to resist flip cup last night (in favor of beers today). How did you do it? Did your friends give you a hard time?

  6. I just love reading your Vermont posts – I learn more about my home state each time! Never knew about the Lake Champ. Bike paths (though I don’t go up that way terribly often anyways) And I guesse we have pretty cool signs if I say so myself πŸ˜›
