2012 Countdown

Let’s bring in the New Year with a few cyber cocktails, delicious nibbles and a fun little countdown of sorts.





Surely you’ll find something you like..



Below is a countdown of all random sorts. FYI: number 1 would be the most popular.

I was actually surprised that overeating is the highest! I guess many of us seek blogs for help- which is fantastic! I’m also super pumped that a group fitness class is in the ranks.

Top Search Terms:

5. don’t give up

4. disappointment

3. be happy

2. body pump

1. overeating

Now let’s get a little crazy and seek out my selection of the oddest search terms. Seriously guys, what were you thinking…

  • wardrobe malfunction workout
  • compulsive eating tattoo
  • round ass crave <– should I take this as a compliment or be a bit worried..
  • ladies crotch muscles
  • do i have a weird back
  • guys toenails <— hahahah what?!
  • do marathoners pee
  • where in brisbane can i get maple tree hugger ben and jerry’s <— we have some dedicated B & J people out there.

Moving onto blog posts- these were the top as viewed and clicked on by you. In countdown fashion once again. I’ve also categorised this category- organisation freak alert- for you in terms of general (all posts), recipes, group fitness and health/self-help related posts.

Have you got a countdown you’re doing tonight? What do you typically do for the last minute of the year? What do you do once the new year is here?

Happy New Years Eve!


Myself and 12 (or so) others started their New Years Eve day off with a 5:45am Body Step class. I guess people were keen to get a kick start on their resolutions. As usual I ended up sweaty and full of endorphins. I’ve got a 9:20am coming my way soon. Note to self: Must foam roll.


With tonight most probably not being an early night- anything past nine thirty is not early- I probably should have a nap sometime today, before all the shenanigans start to happen. 5am wake ups aren’t really my thing and we went over a friends last night which meant I went to bed a little later. Oh well, YOLO.

In other exciting news I have recently become a member of Healthy Living Blogs! After spending time checking out their Blog Tip Thursday posts, reading many of their Friday Features and not to mention using their huge healthy blog database to suss out some fantastic healthy blogs- you know to fill those boring work hours- I finally decided to become a part of it all.

It’s early days for now but I can’t wait to get into it all. If you’re unsure whether you want to become a member or not why not read a little more about it or if you simply want to follow the crowd and showcase your blog then come on over and join us!




Plus with 2013 just around the corner HLB already has set some amazing goals (these are my kind of people!)- to reach 2013 members before 2013! If you’d like to be a part of it (and we would love you to) check out the members page which will give you all the nitty gritty on what you have to do to became a member. And if you’re feeling extra generous why not mention the fantastic individual (Bek @ Crave) who referred you!

Healthy Living Blogs is a database for blogs who are even a tiny bit remotely health orientated. Whether you give advice about diet and exercise, talk about your health, focus on mental health, share fantastic healthy (and not so healthy-moderation remember) recipes or just maintain your blog as an exercise log you’ll fit right in with the rest of us who are healthy living obsessed. The best kind of obsessed, right?

I’m off to cook the boy and myself breakfast! I’ll speak to you once more in 2012 before seeing you in the new year (depending on your time zone of course).

What are your plans for NYE?
