Winding Down

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.

First things first: $5 Friday!! :mrgreen:

Mal and I are still gung-ho about raising money for Team In Training (TNT), so we’re offering a giveaway to win a necklace from Ecolissa. Ecolissa carries fashionable eco-friendly and vegan women’s clothing and accessories. Melissa, the owner and avid CNC reader, donated a necklace from her collection to help raise money for TNT. The winner will pick from the two options below: Smartglass Large Necklace with Large Chain or Kris Nations Large Owl Necklace.

Every $5 you donate to our Team In Training page gets you one raffle ticket for a chance to win. ($10 gets you 2 tickets, $15 gets you 3 tickets, etc.) Mal and I really hope that you consider donating. Leukemia hit really close to home for us this week.


Smartglass Large Necklace with Large Chain

Large recycled bottle disk, cut and fired and finished with 18 inches of large sterling chain. Fully adjustable. Glass approximately 3 inches in diameter (think beer bottle size….) NOTE: These products are unique and handmade. Slight imperfections of size and color are part of our designs. Expect some variations. Available in clear from a Corona bottle (as shown).


Kris Nations Large Owl Necklace

Playful and sophisticated, this vintage inspired small owl pendant necklace is sure to take notice. Made from recycled 14k gold overlay, with a blue/black glass bead. Pendant measures 1 x 1.5 inches on adjustable length chain 16-19 inches.


Please feel free to tell friends, family, and coworkers about our raffle too. Every little bit helps!


Today’s lunch started with a fruit + yogurt smoothie. In the mix: Stonyfield yogurt, Vega Whole Food Smoothie Infusion, fresh mango, frozen cantaloupe and strawberries (from an Edible Arrangement), and vanilla soy milk.

A little while later, I had a bowl of leftover Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower. Smoothies taste so delicious, but they never seem to fill me up. I always want “solid” food after I drink them.


After lunch, I headed to Starbucks to work on the final edits for my book, which now has its own ISBN number. It’s a real live book!!! :mrgreen:

While working away, I celebrated Cookie Friday with a Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin. Mmm! Delish!


I’m more than halfway through my book edits. My goal is to have all of them finished by Monday. Ahhh! Almost done!

Can you feel the work week winding down? I can! The weekend is almost here! 😎



  1. Congrats on your isbn number – that’s huge!

    I have major pumpkin / muffin jealousy right now, i wish my “work” afternoon included starbucks and pumpkin cream cheese muffins! YUM!

  2. I am sooooo ready for the weekend. The goal is to get to bed early tonight and sleep as long as I want tomorrow morning. That way I’m well rested for the rest of the weekend 🙂

    That muffin looks so good — I wish I was eating one right now!

  3. YAYY for your book! That’s amazing, I can’t wait to find it when it comes out. An ISBN number.. that’s big stuff! I’m def feeling the work week winding down (I was ready for this on Wednesday!) and have big plans to do nothing tonight… need a rest badly! Have a great night, and good luck with the edits 🙂

  4. That muffin looks delicious! I used to smuggle strawberry cream cheese muffins like that from the dining room in college. Now I want them.

  5. congrats on the book! can’t wait to pick up a copy : ) i loved caitlins book so much, i bet yours will be equally inspiring and delightful to read

  6. So exciting on the book! Congrats!!!

    And I LOVE those pumpkin cream cheese muffins! It’s the perfect fall treat with a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Wish they sold those year round!!
