The New Year is especially meaningful to me because I also have a birthday on December 31st! This gives me even more motivation to reflect on my life and to set goals for myself. I quit making New Year's resolutions years ago. Instead, I set goals which I evaluate periodically. In 2011, I had a total knee replacement of my right knee. This has been a profound experience for me. I experienced the situation of not being able to walk - prior to my surgery. After the surgery, I feel like I have been reborn! I have been blessed with a speedy and very easy recovery. I believe that part of this had to do with my surgeon, part to my body (I have always healed quickly), but a big part is that I worked my tail off and did EVERYTHING that I was instructed to do. I never missed my PT exercises. Looking forward - I feel a renewed commitment to exercise and superb nutrition. I am going to do it this year. I love walking and moving my body now. Fifty-five is a great age and 2012 will be a great year - MY year!!!!
