Relaxing on a Beach….

in All Posts

Good morning and welcome to the new Healthy Tipping Point!  Same blog, just a new look.  There might be some hiccups while everything transitions from Blogger to WordPress; I apologize in advance!


I woke up this morning and did some meditation and yoga in my living room.  I used the Visualization technique for meditating and imagined myself on a sunny beach.  I pictured the waves washing over me and then retreating, taking all my stress away with the receding water.  It was lovely. 🙂

Then, I signed onto my computer and realized Healthy Tipping Point had transferred over to a new design and freaked out because some people couldn’t see it, my comments weren’t transferring, etc.  So much for my meditation!  :)  But, the blog is in good handsBlain from 13 Infinite did a really good job and worked out all the kinks.  It just takes a while for the magical Internet fairies to catch up and switch everything over (HTP is a huge file — more than 1,400 posts and 8,000+ pictures).


Breakfast was delicious:


I had two slices of whole wheat toast with almond butter:


And a fruit bowl:


Gotta go to work!


Stay tuned for an awesome GymSoap giveaway!

    I love it! I am thinking about switching also. Was it hard to do? I see you had help =)

    • Caitlin September 29, 2009, 6:56 am

      It was a long process but I didnt do anything for it except approve the design. I know did it on her own, though.

  • Katie September 29, 2009, 6:47 am

    Love it! The colors and layout look so serene.

  • Megan @ Megzz Wins At Life September 29, 2009, 6:47 am

    Yeahh!! I love it Caitlin.. It is sooo pretty.. I can’t even make a header that looks good.. I might need to talk to this Blaine.. Your breakfast was also very patriotic!!

  • Maria September 29, 2009, 6:50 am

    It looks awesome!!! And wordpress is so much easier, I think.

  • Jess September 29, 2009, 6:51 am

    Love the new look Caitlin! I’m debating switching too. I like the freedom of design that comes with WP!

  • Carolina John September 29, 2009, 6:51 am

    that’s a cute new design! but switching from blogger to wordpress can sometimes force people to have to change the url in the google readers. it still picked up in my blogroll, though.

  • Marina September 29, 2009, 6:52 am

    wow! what a change! I love it!It looks…pure and refreshing 🙂

  • Stacey September 29, 2009, 6:52 am

    Also, because of your blog, I ordered myself and my Mom-in-Law Road IDs yesterday! I can’t wait to get them 🙂

  • Susan September 29, 2009, 7:35 am

    Love the new look!! I was a fan of the old blog, but I love the simple colours and layout of the new one. Plus, as a fellow wordpress user, it makes commenting a whole lot easier for me now 🙂

  • lena September 29, 2009, 7:37 am

    I love the new look!!! very cool and pleasing to the eye!! 😛

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is September 29, 2009, 7:40 am

    All of your food looks so yummy, like it came right out of a magazine!

  • Runningwriter September 29, 2009, 7:50 am

    I think the new layout looks great. Ironically (?) I did my first link today to your blog and it was in reference to a comment I now can’t see 🙂 I’m sure the hiccups will be short-lived and totally worth it cause it’s super pretty.
    Ha, I’m glad I wasn’t eating when I clicked on the GymSoap link!

    • caitlin September 29, 2009, 8:03 am

      hey! 🙂 i think all the comments are transferred now!

  • Lara (Thinspired) September 29, 2009, 7:52 am

    The new layout looks great! I love the header font and how readable everything is.
    Have a great day, Caitlin!

  • alli September 29, 2009, 7:57 am

    Oooooh! I love the look!

  • Lexi September 29, 2009, 8:12 am

    I love the new layout! I just posted about visualization & self-talk to increase self efficacy. Check it out!.
    Have a good day!

  • Brooke September 29, 2009, 8:16 am

    I LOVE the new layout and design!! Congrats on it being done! Hey I checked out that soap stuff what a neat idea! Sometimes I wonder why can’t I come up with something smart and useful like so!!!

  • Tania September 29, 2009, 8:19 am

    I love it!!! Adorable! I’m glad you didn’t have to transfer this stuff all yourself…what a chore!!

  • Steph (Steph Runs The City) September 29, 2009, 8:29 am

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance September 29, 2009, 9:03 am

    Welcome to WordPress!!! I like your new layout a lot! And, man that breakfast did look amazing……I haven’t had any berries in weeks (just to expensive in at Publix right now for me on my tight family budget, but as soon as they are on sale they are all mine, until then it is all frozen berries for me). =) Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance

  • Erin September 29, 2009, 9:09 am

    The internet fairies did a great job 🙂

    Congrats on the move! I did some visualization this morning to – in order to get me tush out of bed to the gym – and it worked!!

  • Allison (Balance in Bites) September 29, 2009, 9:11 am

    Looks great!

  • sam September 29, 2009, 9:33 am

    it is more modern but the banner looks like everyone elses in the health/running blog community – shoes..fade…title

    • caitlin September 29, 2009, 9:36 am

      i’ve had this banner or a version of it for over a year.

  • Krista September 29, 2009, 9:44 am

    I like the new layout! Very simple but very nice. Your breakfast looks delicious!

  • Dawn (HealthySDLiving) September 29, 2009, 9:54 am

    The new blog looks great! 🙂

  • Mellissa September 29, 2009, 9:58 am

    I love the new layout! If people are still having problems have them clear their cookies out.

  • Jenn September 29, 2009, 10:19 am

    Hey Caitlin,

    I love the new design, looks great! I have to be a pain in the butt (I am an English major after all) and let you know it should be Lying on the Beach (present participle), not Laying. We lay books down, but we lie down. I love this site if you ever have grammer questions:

    For example:

    When you go to Bermuda for your vacation, you spend your time lying (not laying) on the beach (unless, of course, you are engaged in sexual activity and are, in the vernacular, laying someone on the beach).

    > You lie down on the sofa to watch TV and spend the entire evening lying there; you do not lay down on the sofa to watch TV and spend the entire evening laying there.

    • caitlin September 29, 2009, 10:21 am

      hahah ok i just want to say that i stared at the title for like 5 minutes trying to figure out if it was lying or laying. no one said anythign at first so i figured i must be right — but i guess not!

      secondly, thank you for the unique ability to correct someone’s grammar and not sound totally obnoxious. your explanation rocked and made perfect sense. and now i’ll actually remember lie vs. lay.

  • Jenna September 29, 2009, 11:26 am

    yummy breaky!

  • Kat (Kat's Daily Plate) September 29, 2009, 11:32 am

    Love the clean look of the new site!

  • Ally September 29, 2009, 12:10 pm

    Love the new look!

  • Tara September 29, 2009, 12:37 pm

    Hi Caitlin! I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now and I love the new design! You’ve been very inspiring with all the hard work you do and how you balance everything. Thank you and keep up with all that you do for so many 🙂

    • Caitlin September 29, 2009, 12:44 pm

      Thank you Tara 🙂

  • Erin September 29, 2009, 5:08 pm

    Love the new site! I figured something was up when I didn’t see any posts and Google didn’t think you existed! Glad I finally got it working. I look forward to your posts all day.

  • Angie (Losing It and Loving It) September 29, 2009, 5:39 pm

    Absolutely love the new blog. Wordpress is the way to go, so glad to see you switched.

  • 4shley September 30, 2009, 9:09 am

    What kind of almond butter is that? I’ve just tried it for the first time this morning. The kind I ended up with looks more grainy than that, but it was still delicious.

    The new site looks great! I really love Wordpress.

    • Caitlin September 30, 2009, 10:41 am

      it’s barney butter! best almond butter i’ve tried.

  • Jess (What's Normal, Anyways?) October 1, 2009, 10:08 pm

    I found you! You had disappeared out of my reader and I didn’t know why, until I remembered you were moving the blog! It looks great, Caitlin! I’m going to have to contract Blain when I move my baby blog in a few months…I suck at web design!
