I've drifted quite a bit from the topic of it being day numero 4 of the new year. I have worked out 4--count 'em!--4 times this year. I am 4 for 4. Of course, I know I can't keep up that pace, but so far I'm making good use of my leisure time instead of sitting on the couch in front of the tv, while at the same time playing on my MacBook (which has officially secured a spot on my favorites list.) Other than my overall desire to get in shape, I have approximately 1 and a half months before we leave on a trip to Mexico. Mexico has beaches. You wear swimsuits on beaches! And people speak Spanish there.
So off I go--to the gym! Maybe after that I will look for a Spanish book.
