2013....here I am again...finally!!

........Where have I been?  It's been way too long since I've blogged.  I've missed it.  I follow a few blogs on a regular basis but just don't seem to find the time to update mine.  That is going to change.

I went to bed last night and told myself that I am going to turn over a new leaf today and get back on board with blogging, running and Physiqueing!

2012 was an amazing year for me and my family...more about that later. 

I'm going to start tonight with a quick Physique 57 update then take the next several days to do a few year in review posts.

Here goes....

Guilt guilt guilt....I fell back into my old ways.  After recovering from my injured hip flexor (my very first official athletic injury), I just didn't continue on a regular basis with my running and Physique 57 workouts. Part excuses, part fear of getting hurt again.

I realized it's really easy for me to fall back into the "old Suzie" ways. I get so angry with myself when I do.  I look in my closet and hate my clothes, hate my shoes. I don't want to be the "frumpy" old AARP card-carrying lady.  I take the time to get my hair done and I get regular manis and pedis, but I'm just not happy with the way I look...I want to look good.  I will get a quick glimpse of myself walking by a glass door or mirror and hate it!! :-( I get so down on myself and I hate it! I want to be confident and feel like I look good.  I get frustrated with myself because when I am exercising - running, doing my Physique 57 workouts, I feel good.  Why do I get lazy?  All questions I need to answer, but for now, at least for today, I'm putting my pity party aside because today was a good day!

So in keeping with my promise that I made to myself last night...
(I almost came up with an excuse but I didn't)

I came home from work...bundled Tiffy up and took her out for her evening walk, an oh so chilly walk by Cali standards - a brisk 48 degrees.

How cute is she in her little fleece jacket

so.....when I got home, 
 I went upstairs, put on my workout clothes, put my old guilt notes back on the TV where they belong...

And did this!
Nothing motivates me more than seeing my very own Personal P57
trainer cheering me on!
     I am almost positive my Holly Girl gave me a secret shout-out wink wink during the triceps dips :-)


 Yeah! I did it! I did a Physique 57 workout. A short one, but I did it!!
My P57 socks are super comfy ~ especially after the end of my workout!!

So, as I close for the night, I hope this blog entry finds my few (oh so special followers) well and I hope everyone has had a great start to 2013.  I know this is going to be a great year for me and my family.
I have a few secrets that I will share later....hehehe...maybe even a new part-time career for this girl......

Looking super forward to updating on a regular basis and sharing the good stuff :-)...

...but until next time my Fellow Physiquesians...
Happy Tuesday!!
