Zombie Girl

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.

I woke up feeling like a zombie this morning. Traveling + time zones totally messed me up. I had one of those mornings when you wake up and have no idea where you are or what day it is. It actually took me a little while to figure it out! Mal and I made plans with Dave and Marie to go to Body Pump, so I forced my butt out of bed.

Thankfully, Body Pump woke me up and got the rest of my day off on the right foot. My day got even better, when the four of us decided to go to the Wheelhouse Diner for breakfast after class. Hooray! :mrgreen:


I was planning to make pancakes with Buttermilk Syrup at home, but the Wheelhouse was a much easier option, especially since Mal and I have no food in our house and we would have needed to go grocery shopping. We’re so lazy sometimes.


The four of us started with a round of iced coffees.


And I ordered “the usual” for breakfast.


Murphy also enjoyed “the usual,” but check out his new placemat. Adorable, right?!


If you’re wondering about the balls on Murphy’s plate, we put them in his food to prevent him from eating too fast. He sometimes chokes because he wolfs his food down so quickly!

  1. Ugh I totally agree, traveling + switching time zones will really get ya! Just got back from Ireland last night and I felt like I had been drugged! Hopefully we’ll both have time to catch up over the weekend – enjoy 🙂

  2. Oooh I just did Body Pump this morning and upped all my weights…my arms are killing me. But I feel badass!! Totally pumped me up for the rest of the day 🙂

  3. You have been a traveling machine recently! Hope you can get back into the swing of things this weekend!

  4. Those balls sound like a good idea. My cat tends to wolf his food down too quickly, too, but knowing him, he’d try to eat the balls, too. 😛

    I love Murphy’s mat! That’s cute. 😀 Is it custom?

  5. I went to Body Pump this morning, too! I actually almost hit up a diner afterward, but decided against it. I probably would have ordered the same thing. 🙂 Have a great day.

  6. Ahh breakfast at a diner, the perfect comfort food!
    I give my dog a bit at a time, when she’s finished she can have more etc, if i fill the bowl i know it’ll be gone in a second!

  7. Maybe I should add those balls to my fiancé’s plate… That sounded bad.

    Anyway, I love going out for breakfast on the weekends! Now I just need to find a place that serves iced coffee in those giant coca cola glasses and I’m loyal for life 🙂

  8. That wheelhouse diner looks like so much fun! I love cute little places like that. It’s a refreshing change from starbucks and such. Smart idea on Murphy’s dog bowl, by the way. When I read it I was like- wow, that is a really good idea, haha.

  9. Ah, workouts are always energising, I find. Looks like you day is off to a great start! (Hahaha dip the balls in PB! (TWSS) Maybe it’ll help him eat even slower. :P)


  10. What a great idea! My Rascal has the same problem. I try to tell him that it isn’t his last meal, but he’s kind of a little piggy.
