Bought a new piece of exercise equipment today. Much to my dismay, the elliptical machine required some assembly. Cut my finger and scraped my knee, worked up a sweat taking twice the expected time to put it together, and felt like crying at times when things didn’t go together as smoothly as I had hoped. My perfectionist tendencies sometimes make the simplest of tasks punishing. Well, I’m sure the punishment won’t end there. No doubt there will be more blood, sweat, and tears tomorrow morning when I get started back on my exercise routine after a week long hiatus for vacation. Keep me in your prayers!
