I remember hearing when I was younger that ואלה שמות - is Roshei Teivos V'Chayav A'dam L'haavir H'sedra S'htayim M'ikra V'echod T'argum.

If someone who has not been Maavir Sedra so far this year is inspired to start being Maavir Sedra this week - should they start from B'reishis or should they start from this week's Parsha? (sources)

Shulhan Aruch (O"H 285) says you have until Shemini Aseret Bedieved to complete Shenayim Mikra. Thus, start from the beginning of what you missed (see Yalkut Yosef for more details).
