Workout Wednesdays ~ Feb 10, 2016

To say I celebrated to the fullest  extent for Super Bowl would probably be an understatement.

Hubby and I made a trip to the store for some goodies … This being lots of junk food, beer, wine, and some moonshine soaked cherries.

Now if you’ve never indulged in these puppies, well may I highly recommend that you need not consume more than 10 or you will be passed out on the bathroom floor during the half time show of the Super Bowl which was ok because apparently I didn’t miss much.  I have never been a huge fan of Beyonc√© anyway.

How Coldplay got mixed in there I don’t know.

The rest of the container of said cherries sits in the refrigerator and I had to move them behind a bunch of various other items so as not to see them upon opening the fridge.  They shall probably stay there until summertime ….4th of July perhaps.

Anywho…needless to say I celebrated before, during, and after the fabulous event, and after having a short nap on my bathroom floor I was good to go until 2am.

And now let’s bring on Monday…I didn’t move much.  Netflix nanny (Bumbis Mom term that I must steal) was in charge.  There was no working out except lifting the remote and the large cup of water next to my bed.

But I worked out hard last week and stuck to my guns and the hard work paid off because I not only lost 2 more pounds but I reached my 90,000 steps, in one week, goal!  I even passed it by 6,000 steps!  So now my next goal is to accomplish 100,000 in a week.

That’s A Wrap ~ 2015

goodbye 2015 goals stats 2016

I still can’t bring myself to accept that another year has come and gone. ¬†It seems like just yesterday I was making the decision whether to do something with this blog or shut it down and that was back in March. ¬†My most viewed piece that month was “I Met Him On The Internet” with 296 views. ¬†It’s the story behind how I met my husband.

My best month this year was July with 3,456 views for the month. ¬†The top viewed post was “What Do Bloggers Actually Do?“. ¬†A funny piece that only we as bloggers would understand that brought in 272 views.

But my winning post for the year goes to the letter I wrote to Whirlpool Corporation after my $1500 washer took a crap at only 14 months old. ¬†It was entitled “One Pissed Off Customer” and received 467 views, 324 of them were in one day on June 3rd. ¬†It also got me blocked from their Twitter. ¬†Yes people, a major billion dollar corporation BLOCKED little ol’ me from their Twitter. ¬†But in the end they paid for my washer to get fixed and it wasn’t under warranty.

I uploaded 984 pictures.  I like being visual obviously.

My top 5 commenters were Rockin Random Mom, Cuddle Fairy, Growing Up Kater Tot, Random Musings, and Flop Til You Drop.  So I would like to thank Michelle, Becky, Katie, Debbie, and Sandi for taking time out of their days to leave me such awesome comments!

I also want to give a HUGE thank you to not only all the bloggers who share my crazy thoughts and mayhem across all their social networks but also to my friends (especially Lynn, Shaina, Tammy, and Stacy) YOU ALL ROCK! ¬†Sharing my stuff puts a huge smile on my face ūüėÜ!

My top reference guide for leading people to my blog came from Facebook with 2,222.  Followed by Twitter with 1,726.  Search engines such as google, bing, and yahoo at 1,437.  And the top country in which my views came from was right here in the good ol USA with 14,795 followed by the UK with 5,675.

And at the time I am writing this post there has been 26,952 peeks at my blog and I now have a following of 8,459 peeps.

So what lies ahead for me for 2016?
