Besides giving a bunch of fun stuff away to help you live a healthier and more fabulous life, we love that this week allows us to look back at some of the content we’ve created over the past year. We write A LOT, and while some posts get a ton of play and discussion, other gems sometimes go a little unnoticed. Which is what today is all about. Putting the gems out front and center. However, because this site is obviously not just about what we like—it’s really about ya’ll!—we compare/contrast our fave list to the top five posts you read the most. We wonder if any made both lists. Let’s take a look-see! (Oh, and if you’re a new reader, you are in for a reading treat!)
1. The Tracy Anderson Method Workout DVDs. This workout DVD review is more than two years old, but ya’ll love reading it. And we still stand behind our tough and unbiased rating.
2. The 25 Best Workout Songs EVER. Yep, we love this one, too. Everyone loves good workout music—and most of this list came from suggestions from you!
