    I already “like” you on facebook, so I’ll leave a comment here on what I’d like to see on the blog! I’d like to see more short work out videos! =]



  5. Crystal on December 22, 2010 at 9:09 pm

  6. Sami on December 22, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    I would love to see more workout tips on your blog, especially moves with free weights since I always end up doing the same moves at the gym



  7. sweetkaroline on December 22, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    always love reading about your yoga adventures and i hope to see more in 2011!



  8. Jessica Bryan on December 22, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    I looooove your blog an read it everyday, but I am interested in seeing more yummy gluten free recipes! My family has recently decided to cut out gluten for sensitivity and allergy problems and it is helping but I desperately need more tried and tested vegan gluten free recipes! Raw gluten free is even better!!!!!!!!



  9. Natalie on December 22, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    I would also love to see more workout tips and routines for lifting weights! Sometimes it’s intimidating being the only girl in the weights area, but I just can’t stay away!



  10. Julie K on December 22, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    I would love to see more tips on attaining healthy lifestyle goals!
    P.S. I made the Sweet Potato Chili tonight…..OMG I had no idea it was so good!!



  11. Meg on December 22, 2010 at 9:21 pm

  12. michelle whitney on December 22, 2010 at 9:22 pm

  13. Astrid on December 22, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    A weight training plan to jumpstart the new year! Happy Holidays!



  14. Susan on December 22, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    I would like to see beginners guide to fitness for those of us getting started in our journeys to be mini-Fitnessistas!



  15. Brynne on December 22, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    I like you on Facebook (Brynne Gaulin) and one thing I’d like to see more posts of is your outfits/fashion, etc.!



  16. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) on December 22, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    Goodness, it’s like people want some macaroons or something! πŸ˜‰

    For 2011, how about some slow cooker recipes? My repertoire needs an update. πŸ™‚



  17. bridget on December 22, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    Lately, I have loved how your blog has shown us more of your feelings, emotions and tribulations (along with the usual awesome fitness and nutrition information). I am the same age as you, and also dating someone who is constantly on “leave” so its been so comforting to watch how you deal with that in a positive way…and has helped me tremendously!! Therfore, the first thing I would like to see more of in 2011 is more of your personal life and journey. The second thing would be more things you reccomend or have tried and like or do not like. I pretty much go off every rec you have made and it makes it much easier to fully know a product before you buy it! Thanks, happy soon to be 2011 πŸ™‚



  18. Justine on December 22, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    I would love to read more about how you transitioned from losing weight to maintaining. Also always love new recipes πŸ™‚



  19. Carolyn C. on December 22, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Yes, I would love some specifics on how to build upper body muscle from a workout and diet perspective. Also, would love more recipes from you. Thanks!!



  20. Megan on December 22, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    I love your workout videos and challenges! I would like to see more weight loss tips in the coming year as many of us will have weight loss resolutions. Thanks, Gina!



  21. Maggie on December 22, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Hello! πŸ™‚ In 2011, I’d like to see some more dinner recipes! mmm and more macaroon giveaways for sure! πŸ™‚



  22. Melody on December 22, 2010 at 9:38 pm

  28. JordanW on December 22, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    I’d love to see more of the same, of course! Perhaps more breakfast recipes as well (or variations on the b-fest cookie??). After all, it’s the best (and yummiest) meal of the day!



  29. Lizzy on December 22, 2010 at 9:46 pm
