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.

My husband and I are weird. We have this strange connection that seems to bring us together– like when we randomly bumped into each other on the T and today when we both decided to skip our workouts and come home instead… to drink wine. Great minds think alike! 😉


It was 90+ degrees in Boston today, so a cold, crisp white wine made perfect sense to us! 😀


Mal LOVED this wine. He actually said it was his “perfect” wine. I liked it a lot too.


Being the classy individuals that we are, we paired our Semillon with Vermont White Cheddar Wheat Thins. It was a lovely combo. I easily ate a million crackers.


While Mal and I ate, drank, and chatted, Murphy chilled in the grass and enjoyed some iced water.


Please note my workout gear, complete with sports bra and headband. I got dressed and still skipped the gym! Don’t ya think putting on workout gear is sometimes the hardest part?!


Please note Mal’s workout gear. He was also on his way to the gym. (I swear, he doesn’t normally wear cut-off t-shirts.)


Please note Murphy’s butt on the stair of our front porch. (This cracked me up! 😆 )


Please notice Murphy’s “lights are not on” face in this photo.


Our dog is pretty hilarious. We laugh at him a lot.


And frequently tease him.







Murphy is also fun to play with.

I’m definitely loving our new life! :mrgreen:



Tonight’s dinner was more leftover Cool Chinese Vermicelli X 2.


And a Quorn Turk’y Burger that the company sent me to sample the other day. I love the Quorn Chik’n Nuggets, so hopefully, these will be just as delicious. I’ll let ya know! 😉


Having some leftover birthday cake for dessert and watching American Idol!!!

Good night! 😀



  1. haha- that’s so funny you guys both had your gear on! It is definitely hard to work out in this heat!! I just got in from a run 15 minutes ago (10:30pm at night AND it’s still almost 30 degrees! I believe that’s about 80 something in farenheit)
    LOVE wine and the puppy photos are cute!

  2. That’s why you are married – you are on the same wavelength! I often dread putting on my workout gear but once it’s on I feel so much better about working out. But when the weather is that nice, wine is always the way!

  3. Your family is adorable 🙂
    I just tried my first Quorn product the other day- the chick’n breasts. Not bad! I’d like to try the other things they make.

  4. It does look like you and Mal are very happy–love it! :o) And at least you “thought” of the’s the thought that counts, right?

  5. Murphy is so the dog from MIB; he’s got total personality

    I didn’t know Quorn was in the business of fake turkey! how is the texture to it?

  6. I think going home to drink wine is the perfect way to spend a hot sunny day. Good choice! I have made this choice many times as well..

  7. hahahahha the “lights are not on face” picture is the best. What a cutie. You made the right decision not working out yesterday, my face was purple after my run. PURPLE. New England, get your act together.

  8. thats why i love my hubby so much, we are just like your guys! (minus the wine part- neither of us drink much.. lol)- great minds always think alike!!!!
    i was laughing hysterically at the puppy pics, i love how goofy animals look sometimes.. and he totally looks spacey and goofy! lol

  9. Hi Tina, first of all, LOVE your evening. Fabulous. Secondly, it was so strange… just as I was about to put my first bite of Quorn’s turkey burger into my mouth, I read that you were having it for dinner also (I have a bad habit of eating and blog reading at the same time!)… so, what did you think? I actually didn’t care for it that much (and I eat a lot of fake meat products)… but maybe it was because it was too hot in my apartment to warm up the stove, so I nuked it instead. Curious about your review! 🙂

  10. You and Mal are so cute! I love when my husband plays with my dog too… it’s so much fun to watch.
