Just when I am getting in a groove at the gym (multiple weeks of going regularly), one of my joints (knee/foot) has other ideas. I have started working out in group classes focusing on lower impact and that has helped a lot, but I do miss doing the heavier weights.

My biggest personal challenge is the late night snacking while watching TV with the spouse.

How are you guys dealing with this stuff?
The back issue and plantar fasciitis really slow me down. Instead of running, I do most of my cardio on a stationary bike, with 5-10 minutes on a stair stepper. I used to like to run and do the stair stepper, but those days are behind me.
