Waiting On You

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 is STILL at the gym! He left almost 2 hours ago! Jeez! I’m sure he’s getting a great workout, but I’m antsy to shop! “Waiting on you, Mal!” (We jokingly say this to each other when we are trying to get the other one to hurry up!) 

My 8 mile run was fantastic! It was my first outdoor run of the year and I got to use my new fancy Garmin Forerunner 305! 😀  After my Nike + iPod died a couple of months ago, I decided to upgrade to this baby! I haven’t been able to use it until now because it only works where it can find satellites for the GPS (aka outside). It was fun using the Garmin today– I tracked my pace and distance practically non-stop for 8 miles! It was so cool! I barely know how to use this thing and I know it has a million of options, so I’m looking forward to reading the manuel and figuring it out all. And a big THANKS to Meghann who recommended this model and answered my numerous questions about it– I didn’t even understand how the GPS worked at first! After my run, I did 20 minutes of Yoga for Runners to stretch my tight legs. It felt so nice!

My stats:

  • Distance: 8 miles 
  • Time: 1:15:26
  • Average pace: 9:25/mile
  • Calories: 828


To refuel, I made a yogurt-fruit smoothie with a 6 ounce container of Stonyfield French vanilla yogurt, 1 cup of frozen berries, 1 cup of soy milk, and ice. Mmmmmm! What a treat after a long run! 

While enjoying my smoothie, I baked a batch of specially-requested Oatmeal Raisin Bars. (They’re for my friends who are throwing the housewarming party later today.) I love having our little cart in our kitchen now. It’s perfect for consulting recipes online.

Time to go! Banana Republic here I come! :mrgreen:



  1. I LOVE my Forerunner! I have the exact same one and it has been awesome! I love the HRM capabilities and it’s accuracy amazes me. I have tried so many new running routes since getting one because I don’t have to worry about not knowing my mileage. Good choice 🙂

  2. awesome run! aren’t HRM’s so much fun? I can’t wait to use mine 🙂 We got the garmin 50 with the footpod – it does distance by that instead of the GPS.

    Have fun shopping – I love banana republic!

  3. OOooh that smoothie looks so good!!

    I too bought a Forerunner 305. I’ve barely used it though as even outside I have a hard time finding satellites!

  4. Fabulous smoothie!

    How did your Nike+iPod work? I live off of my iPod Touch. I’m wondering how useful the Nike app would work. Is it only beneficial for running (as opposed to using a stationary bike or elliptical)?

  5. I looove my Garmin..who I call Garmey for short!

    The software is fantastic too… you’ll love looking back at all your runs!

  6. I wish I could afford a Garmin Forerunner 305, they’re soo expensive here. I found a cheaper and much simpler one from Polar that measures heart rate, time and calories burned but not distance. It’s still expensive but I’m considering it. Holy wow, over 800 kcal on your run!

  7. I love Garmin. I have a 405 and I’m so PO that they came out with a new model. Ugh, I’m going to have to buy it.
