I may have almost pulled my hair out last night. I switched my blog from Blogger (through Google) to WordPress.
First of all, WordPress (.org, not .com) requires more computer knowledge than I have, so this will be a bit of a learning curve. While I was trying to fix some bugs last night, I found out that the answer the everything is in coding. Well…I can’t code. At all. So I guess I will have to practice every now and then. I also had trouble switching my domain name, www.happy-eater.com, from Blogger to WordPress. At first, it worked beautifully. I was satisfied, so I shut the computer for this first time in several hours and went out to dinner with my parents. When I came back, my site didn’t work! After frantically searching the WordPress forums for answers, I was told to just wait patiently. So I went to bed very sad…I’m very attached to my blog!
So why did I bother making the switch? Well, I found out that my blog isn’t Google-able. I found that ironic, considering Google hosted my blog. I also have a limited amount of space on Blogger, so if I decide to keep this up for a few years, I’ll eventually hit a roadblock and have to switch over anyway. I read many articles about making this switch, and it was clear that the earlier I made the switch, the easier it would be. So now I’m off to fix more bugs: weird formatting, broken links, fixing ads, and learning how to get my header and my blog menu to switch places! (If you know how to do that, please let me know!)
Paleo & Exercise and other updates
I’m still in New Orleans visiting family and friends. Ryan went back to Houston on Saturday :(
Living in someone else’s home complicates the Paleo thing just a little bit. I’ve been doing the best I can while at home, and when I go out to eat (which has been quite the common occurrence) I let myself cheat a little bit. I figure if I just keep moving, it will all work itself out in the end! Last week I completed this Holiday Workout Challenge:
It’s a two day challenge! I completed 53% the first day, and finished up the next day. I was sore after day one, so you know I was exhausted after day two. But then I took a day off (…or two days off) before working out again. The purpose was to make sure I moved during the holidays.
This week I also completed this burpee challenge and went on two long walks with Molly.
I actually didn’t do the last part…where I have to do it all over again. After doing 45 burpees (with a squat jump between) and 45 deep squats, I didn’t feel the need to do it again. So I threw in some push ups and called it a day.
Question: What have you been doing to keep moving over the holidays?
