I joined a gym in Nov, and am still going! I'm trying new activities out so I get some variety. At the end of the work day, when I am stressed and dragging, the last thing I think I want to do is go to the gym. That's when I need it the most, and I feel tons better if I workout than if I go home and do nothing.

One thing I definitely have to focus on is tracking my food. I've been on Weight Watchers at Work and didn't really lose like I wanted to due to my knee surgery. However, my weight didn't go up either. My main focus right now is getting my water in and staying within my calorie range. Also got to do more on exercising.

For me, it's going to be about learning how to adapt.

I fell off the wagon due to an injured hand in October. I got frustrated at not being able to do the workouts I wanted, and just stopped working out (I stopped the wii entirely too due to my hand), even dropping the things I could still do. After 8 weeks of rehab and appointments with the PA (who insisted that it was healing when I knew and told her it wasn't), another PA finally ordered an MRI, which revealed that the ligament was torn and needed surgery all along. And now, thanks to the length of time that has passed since the injury, the chance of a complete recovery, even with surgery, is low.

So I'm coming into the new year with a lot ahead, including surgery and a long recovery, and the most important thing is going to be finding a way to work around it, without letting it be a reason to stay of the wagon.

I too am just going to take it piece by piece. I am going to concentrate on one area at a time instead of trying to do everything at once. Each month will be a new goal to concentrate on. This month I am concentrating on tracking everything. I need to get back to doing that again. Sometimes, you can surprise yourself. I thought eating french onion soup was going to kill my calories for the day, but I was still within all my ranges. You never know :)

For me, 2012 is about focusing on small goals rather than the big picture. In the past I've gotten overwhelmed by what the future held, that I ended up living a very anxious present. Of course I have my desires, I have my ultimate weight goal, my financial goals, my career goals, my family goals, but the end result isn't as important as today.

So, I will also have a daily checklist. Little successes that I can accomplish every day. 2012 isn't about tomorrow. It is about living right now and knowing that all of my wishes are in the making! I love today and look forward to tomorrow!

I am definintely starting over again. Get back to tracking food, exercising at least 5 days a week, and just plain doing the right thing for my body. My plan is to incorporate a daily checklist of "things to do" in all aspects of my life.

I wish all a happy and healthy new year!

I'm excited for the New Year for a few reasons.
1 My baby will be born in 30 days or less
2 I will be able to work out again after baby is born
I will continue to track my food. I quit tracking for about a month but have recently started again.
I want to start planning our meals this year as well.

Happy New Year!
We can start over or continue on our course as we are. Which will you do? What would you like to change in the New Year? What will you continue to do? Is there anything you think you need to work on?
