When I "fall off the wagon", the hardest part of getting back on is just starting. It's more mental than physical - but I certainly pay for it physically with stiffness and sore muscles.
December was a really hard month, just killer at work, with holidays on top of that. I don't want to dream my life away, but I do dream of how the holidays will be after I retire. 10 years!!! Too long. But my Mom probably won't still be with us by then, so I can't really wish it to come any faster. Plus - I don't really want to rush the getting older thing...
I think that mentally (and physically) I give myself a pass for a few weeks after the end of the year. It takes me a while to get geared up to want to make an effort at anything again. But after a couple false starts, I think I'm finally on my way.
