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.
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! 😀
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’…
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 today was a new combo!
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!
Great combo. 😀
And now, with blogging pains, a spinning workout and breakfast complete, it’s time fo’ work.
See ya on the flip side!
