Maple Mustard Pork Chops

Oh hey there!  Welcome to the new and improved ThePrimalYogi.com.

I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for more than six months now!  I’ve been pretty consistent with it too, which I wasn’t sure would happen.  I really have been enjoying this little venture but wasn’t exactly happy with how the blog looked.  I contemplated “upgrading” for a while but just never kicked myself into gear.

Until this weekend!

There is SO much to learn about building a website it’s pretty overwhelming.  So I decided to start with baby steps.  I chose a new theme I have been eyeing for a while called Yumblog.  It’s a theme designed by a company called UpThemes.  The guys there have been super helpful with answering my questions (I didn’t even realize I could get help at first so that was a nice surprise).

What do you guys think?

Anyways, on to the good stuff.

Friday Link Love

2012-03-13 16.03.46

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend.

That was a silly statement.  Who doesn’t look forward to the weekend?  
My Friday started with a trip to the dermatologist to get a mole removed.  It wasn’t bad at all besides the fact that I now keep remembering that I have stitches on my chest and they’re getting really itchy.  Oh and also that I can’t do any heart openers or backbends for a week in yoga. Boo.

Anyways, I wanted to do a Friday Link Love post today because I came across some pretty awesome posts and articles this week that I just had to share.  (My blog doesn’t show links very distinctly…just click on the title of the post to get there!)

Hope you enjoy!
A Letter To My Sisters: Our Value is Not Based on Clicks: Such a heartwarming post that really reminds us to live life through our eyes instead of our smart phones.  If you have any pre-teens / teenagers in your life, definitely a great one to share.

8 Things Remarkably Effective People Do Every Day : #1 is my favorite “Visualize Your Success.”  I learned this in my Yoga Teacher Training – Weekend Two.  We called it “Feel it real.”  I’ve been practicing by actually visualizing myself teaching yoga classes.  It definitely helps with my confidence and motivation on my path to getting there.

 
19 Things You’ll Appreciate Only If You Studied Abroad: I swear this article could have been written by me or my friends who I studied abroad with.  It is dead on! #4, #7, and #16 are my favorites.

 

Five Things Friday Link Up Love – January 31st

Happy Friday!!  I have been reading Five Things Friday posts, hosted by Clare from Fitting it All In, for a while and am so excited to finally take part this week!  I love five. Mostly because I was born on the fifth day of the fifth month, it was number in high school, it’s not too small nor too big, and well you get it!

Five Things I Ate

I haven’t cooked fish in a while.  I loved this Salmon that I glazed with coconut oil and mustard and topped with almond flour, salt, pepper, and sage!

We braved the cold and threw these pork chops on the grill.  They came out yummy and I made sweet potato fries for the first time!

My go-to omelet obviously!  I’ve taken out the mushrooms because of a recent experience with eating bad ones…no fun.
