Upcoming: New Store, College, Buff Company, Year End Rear End

Over last 2 years I have blogged/journaled the least amount in my entire adult life.  I blame social media for that, lol.  Pictures and videos, snaps and live posts have taken over and the written blogs have dwindled in my life.  Another thing I know has changed the way I blog was when I opted to shut down my private site TeamBuffMother.com due to the inactivity caused by facebook groups being preferred and the ease of access.  We have a very active TEAM BUFFMOTHER! facebook group, but it’s just not the same to blog there for some reason.

I have made blogging “come back” attempts repeatedly, but have failed in those attempts due to various reasons: my computer broke down, my webiste/blog wasn’t loading properly, my time was spent on my phone which I refuse to type on, a resolve to vlog on facebook instead, etc….  SO as you see I had valid excuses 🙂

Today I am starting again.  I am set to finish my college degree this spring by going back after 20+ years to complete 15 credits online. I’m excited and scared about the workload. I’ll be on my computer typing a lot! So why not take 10-15 mins to blog that journey and plus I may just share some of what I am learning with a captive audience of this blog.  In preparation I have really cut back on my business responsibilities and training clients.  I am not taking on new clients a the moment, and haven’t been for the past 6 months or so… I still have several that I’ll keep on training, but I think that workload will be manageable.  My goal is to get through the semester of school ready to hit the ground running in my Corporate Fitness business: Buff Company.  I am certain much of the coursework I am doing will help focus my attack on that goal.

Just in the past couple weeks I’ve taken time to fix up my site a bit- if you are looking to buy anything at the moment I am without a store during the hottest buying season of the year.  My timing is perfect!  But I am integrating a new “STORE” system at the moment. I’ll be using Woo-commerce instead of the 1shoppingcart system that I used for the past almost 10 years. Part of the big reason for my switch is the ease of use and the cost. I was paying about $140/month for 1 shopping cart.  Making a business online is NOT CHEAP, trust me!  Everything cost and if you aren’t striving hard to make that money back each month you can get into big time business losses!  My website hosting was being very problematic…I had a VPS that was causing site errors and my site to crash a bunch.  Every time I published anything it would crash. Come to find out HostGator does not recommend VPS hosting for WordPress sites.  Good to find that out after 3 years, lol.   I have now switched it to a more simple WordPress type hosting (that is way cheaper too!) and now hope to be able to integrate some updated features to my site.  I’ll be changing the theme, adding more features and certainly re-organizing information on BuffMother.com   Plus I will be re-launching BuffCompany.com– I had made a free trial site thru Go Daddy but didn’t opt to pay soon enough and they deleted it entirely. It was a loss but I’ll make the new one better.  It will be a site focused on Corporate Fitness.  Which is basically my college degree, it was originally called Corporate and Community fitness. I also have a minor in coaching and nutrition.

This morning I got out a very good, but very old college textbook of mine.  “Concepts of Physical Fitness”  the 8th edition by Charles B. Corbin and Ruth Lindsey with a 1994 copy-write.  Much of the the information talks about goals for our Wellness for the year 2000, lol!  I can honestly tell you those goals have not been accomplished even now in 2017!  I plan to look for an updated version of the textbook for my personal reference and I also need to find a couple other “bargains” on the textbooks I need for my courses.  Textbooks are still way overpriced for books– it’s a crime!

My fitness goals for the month are to do a YEAR END REAR END challenge! It’s all about the booty baby!! We did a my booty challenge http://buffmother.com/mybooty/ in May and I plan to do many of those workouts, plus I plan to also integrate many moves from the Hot Hinney challenge we did a couple years back, my famous “Butt Sandwich” http://buffmother.com/articles/10-butt-workouts/ workouts are always fun!!

That’ll be all for now, Catch you on the flip side!

I did workout today, it was just a crappy one~ tomorrow morning I will have to try it again!!

Got in about 35mins in the upright bike then ran for 12 mins really slow and did a super tiny lifting workout– then ate a piece of pizza and a couple crusts with butter and honey. 

 

THE GOOD NEWS is I got 2 really cool NEW Business things in the works. A YouTube partnership and a possible product endorsement!! Add that to several other irons in the fire that GOD simple dropped in my lap…HOLY COW HE ROCKS!!
