Changing Jobs/ IRA Deductions

From January 1st to December 5th 2011, I was not covered by a retirement plan through my employer. During this time I contributed to a traditional IRA. Starting December 5th, I started a new job and began receiving retirement benefits through my employer.

Am I still able to deduct the money I contributed? My income falls above the income range, so if I can't claim it because of my former job, none of it would be deductible.
