  1. Yeah Winter Shape Up!!! So excited already. I really loved your baby food posts. :)

  2. I’m glad you had such a great year, Gina! My 2012 was kind of a stinker, but I’m excited for all that 2013 has in store! PS. Looking forward to your winter shape-up! :)

  3. Happy New Year to you and the family! Crazy to think last year I was stalking your blog to see when that baby would come.
    You are always an inspiration!
    Any idea when I should put the WSU on my calander?

  4. Caroline is such a sweet heart.
    I always think it’s so interesting to see which are the most-visited posts from bloggers!

  5. Excited for the Winter Shape Up! Happy New Year to you and your family, Gina!

  6. What a wonderful year! My favorite post of my own was about running the Chicago Marathon :)

    Have a fun night with your loved ones!

  7. My favorite post was Summer Shape Up 2012 (I’m counting the whole series as one post.). It’s what turned me from an occasional Fitnessista reader into a die hard, everyday, cry when I miss a post reader. Haha! It also helped me get back on board with my training. I had been slacking for several months and having a 4 weeks goal/guideline really helped me. And the workouts kicked my butt!! I am super excited about Winter Shape Up and hope it will jump start my goal of dropping the 10 pounds that I “picked up” during 2012.

  14. I completed the 12days of Christmas workout last night, except I did the entire thing through twice after a proper warm up, then followed it up with 3 rounds of 25kettlebell swings, 25 push ups, 25 pull ups. I then garnished the whole workout with your ab burner. Holy moly, it was insanity! :)

  21. My favorite post was the one I just did today…

    I’d love to see some juicing recipes this year and maybe a post on how you’ve changed emotionally/mentally since becoming a mom. I also always love play list suggestions!

    Happy new year!

  22. I’m so thankful for your blog and all of the fabulous fitness and clean eats you have brought us in 2012. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for 2013 :) Happy New Year!

  23. Your breakfast cookie cereal changed my life. Seriously. I was so skeptical….then I made it. And ate it. And loved it. Repeat, repeat, repeat!

    For 2013….I’d like to see more meal ideas. I always get in a food rut and eat the same things over and over.

    Happy New Year!

  24. 2012 was an amazing year for you. Here’s hoping 2013 is even better!

  25. It’s been a great year!
