So! It's a new year and we all probably want to recover from holiday overindulgences, if not actually turn over a completely new leaf.

How's everyone doing at that?

For me, I gained twoish pounds from mid-November through today, which isn't bad, but is on top of the several pounds I gained while recovering from the latest annoying health issues (started in July, worst in August, at "mostly pain free" right now). I got a FitBit for Christmas and have been enjoying learning how different activities affect my overall level of activity for the day. It also tells me how well I slept, something I have wondered for a long time. (Answer: Like a rock when no one else is in bed with me, more restless when DD or DH or both are hogging the covers.)

I have returned to regularly tracking WW points and activity, and am going through the sugar and carb withdrawal that is requisite and common for this time of year. The goal for the month is to figure out what 10,000 steps a day looks like, and to get back to eating only the points WW says I need. Another goal is to return to eating the way that really helped my blood chemistry numbers. I've got a ways to go on that, but am slowly rebuiling habits. (It's TOO COLD for smoothies, darn it!)

So, how are you all doing?

ThyPeace, thought a change of pace might be a good idea.
