Long Time No See...Starting the New Year Off Right

Happy New Year!
As I went to post my blog, I saw the date of my last posting - 11/9 -- almost 2 months ago! I can't believe I've been away that long. What happened - let's see - the BF's son's bar mitzvah (which I must admit, I looked pretty awesome - once I get some photos, I'll post), then work got silly crazy, then Thanksgiving, then I got sick, then the holidays...and so on and so on...
Lot's of excuses, lot's of rationalizations as to why I fell off track. In the past, I would have beaten myself up mercilessly. Now, today, while I'm not thrilled with my behavior, I am putting it into perspective. It's just a blip on the continuum...and I did it before and I can do it again. And it's taken me 48 years to be the way I am, I'm not going to change overnight - it's never a straight course - there's always adjustments to keep heading in the right direction. I am looking at this two month lapse as a course adjustment.
I've bought the P90X and am going to start it this week. Tomorrow, I will take my before pictures and measurements, as well as do the fit test. I must admit, I'm a little terrified of this - but all I've heard is how great it is (well and how hard it is). I'm going to give it a shot - do what I can each time, and I'll just keep getting better.
It's a new year, a new day and I'm going to embrace it.
