Will Run for Pizza

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.

Mal and I did our first Team In Training track workout on an actual track this afternoon. Both Track Workout 1 and Track Workout 2 were completed inside on a treadmill due to high temps, but today’s cooler weather allowed us to run outside.


I can’t even remember the last time I ran on a track!?! It definitely brought back memories of my senior year of high school. Mal and I were on the same track team back then! πŸ˜€

Track Workout 3

2 lap warm up, 2 X’s 1600M, 4 lap warm down, recovery should be the same amount of time it took you to run the interval

I ran the first 1600M in 7:48; Mal ran it in 6:55. For the second 1600M, I did it in 7:59 and Mal flew in at 6:09! He was en fuego this afternoon!

After our track workout, Mal and I headed home to make pizza for dinner. The whole time that I was busting my butt on the track, I brainstormed what ingredients to use on the pizza. (I swear, my brain is always thinking about food! πŸ˜‰ )


I ended up coming up with a delicious combination of shredded Gruyere cheese, sauteed onions, minced garlic, sliced Golden Delicious apple, and pecans. Can you say YUM!?!


I ate two pieces while watching Arrested Development with my hubby. (How adorable is Michael Cera!?)


Mal claims that tonight’s pizza is the best that I’ve ever made, which is really nice of him to say. But, I think he said the same thing about my Sausage, Spinach, and Provolone Pizza! πŸ˜‰


Our home inspection is bright and early tomorrow morning. I’m trying not to freak out, but it’s tough, especially after what happened the last time.

Enjoy the evening, guys!

P.S. I have an update about my book in the morning! πŸ˜€



  1. YUM!! That looks delicious! I love your simple, yet creative recipes!

    And that’s so cute about you and Mal being on the same team way back when!

  2. Ilooooooooooove pizza! one of my favorites that i’ve made is a sauteed onion, feta, peccorino romano, and mozzarella combo! can you tell i love cheese? πŸ˜‰

  3. Haha, I ALwAYS think about food when I am running too. The only thing that gets me through my long runs on Saturday mornings is envisioning that big bowl of oatmeal waiting for me when I finish. I definitely run for food! πŸ™‚

  4. Good luck times a million on the house inspection, it has to go better this time right?!

    What kind of dough did you use for your pizza? it looks so yummy.

  5. I am also always thinking about what my next meal will be – especially when I run I am usually thinking of my breakfast.

    Great track workout – your pizza looks great!

  6. Look forward to the book update!

    And I love track workouts. I did so many sprints and stadium stairs at one during my fitness competition prep the end of last year.

  7. Your running has really inspired me to stretch myself as a runner and actually sign up for a big race, like the half marathon I’ve been saying I want to do for the last 2 years. Good luck with your training!

  8. OMG….what an intersting combo for pizza! I think I really need to get more creative after reading about your pizza….mine are kinda boring!!!

  9. Oh a date with Arrested Development – I am jealous! Such a brilliant show!

    We have pizza on the menu for football Thursday night and I was going to keep it veggie and simple, but your creations have my wheels turning. πŸ™‚
