Movin’ and Groovin’

I try not to let my blog stress me out. Most of the time I succeed by reminding myself that the lil’ blog is my hobby and that helps me to put things into perspective.

I did feel a little bit of blog-related stress yesterday as my blog made the move from WordPress to Bluehost. I’ve done nearly everything related to my blog myself (except for the wonderful redesign which I owe to The Blog Fairy).

I am not tech-savvy at all, but with the help of some online tutorials and many, many Google searches I’ve been able to get by… That is until I started looking into changing the host of my blog.

Time to Move!

Holy information overload! Since I didn’t want to lose any of my blog in the transfer process, I knew I wanted to have a professional’s help, if not for their skill than for my peace of mind.

I want to give a huge shout out to Seth for being my go-to web guy! He was so, so easy to work with and answered all of my questions in a language I could understand (not web-speak). Thank you mucho, Seth! :D

So, as you may have noticed my blog was flip-flipping back and forth bewteen my peanutbutterfingers.wordpress.com domain and it’s real home, right here at pbfingers.com.

Now let’s get away from the movin’ and head onto the groovin’…

Workout

My workout this morning was a sweaty one! I initially planned to take Sadie for a run, but it was pouring outside!

Plan B: Take a spinning class!

One of the benefits to keeping track of my workouts through the Exercise Log on this blog is that I can see when I last took certain classes. The last time I took a spin class was in March. Clearly I was long overdue!

I forgot two things about spinning classes:

  • They make me unbelievably sweaty
  • They’re really hard!

I think my time away from the bike made today’s class feel extra challenging.

The instructor said something that resonated with me though and made me push through.

“If you’re not working, you’re not living.”

I know you can take this statement in many different ways, but I took it to mean that when we truly work our bodies and minds to our full potential, that’s when we’re really living!

I always feel so much more alive after a great workout and I kept reminding myself of that whenever I wanted to kick back and relax on the bike.

Breakfast

Breakfast today was a new combo!

Cake Batter + Peach + Coconut

I made myself a yogurt bowl that contained:

  • 1 c. Fage plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 sliced peach
  • 1/2 c. old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 scoop All the Whey cake batter protein powder
  • Three pinches unsweetened coconut
  • Dash of nutmeg

I cooked the oats and protein powder together with a bit of water in the microwave and let the mixture chill in the fridge for a bit before adding the remaining ingredients.

After topping the cake batter oats with the yogurt, fruit, coconut and nutmeg, my breakfast was ready!

Scoop it Up!

Tuesday Breakfast

Great combo. :D

And now, with blogging pains, a spinning workout and breakfast complete, it’s time fo’ work.

See ya on the flip side!

    Glad everything worked smoothly with your blog! Happy new host :D

    I love spinning, I miss it SO much – I used to do it 2 – 3 mornings a week in California and it really got my day off to a great start. I totally agree – it DOES make you feel more alive, especially during the beginning of the week, when it’s needed most haha ;)

    Breakfast looks awesome! Enjoy your day!

    Your title for this post got the song “Play That Funky Music White Boy” stuck in my head! “…and movin’ to the groovin’, and just when, it hit me, somebody turned around and shouted, play that funky music white boy”!

    …errr, sorry. I’ll stop now. Not a bad way to start my Tuesday… Thanks!

    I love spinning classes…did you wear a heart rate monitor during the class? I’ve always wondered how many calories I was burning and don’t have a heart rate monitor. Thanks!

    I can’t believe it was March you last took a spin class. I remember you going to classes a bit more often back then and it doesn’t seem like it was 6 months ago. Wow.

    Glad things are sorted out now with the move. :)

    I’m glad everything is sorted out and blogging can return to being stress-free!

    Where do you find cake batter protein powder?

    I’ve been looking everywhere with no luck! I’m OBSESSED with cake even more than I’m obsessed with peanut butter. It’d be a great addition to my pantry!
