Why are you trying to kill me? I apologize sincerely for using you as a coat rack and holder of many miscellaneous items these past few months. I have seen you begging to be taken for a gentle stroll even if a brisk walk wasn't in order. Don't think your needs were going totally unnoticed, I was thinking about it almost daily and stuff kept coming up. Did you see all the craziness of the holidays? Did you notice that I was exhausted when I came home at night from work or that I only had a few hours to myself to be lazy and fart around on the computer - or how about the knitting....did you notice me knitting for gifts and embroidering as well? Don't take it so personally, it wasn't you it was me.
So now that I've made a good attempt to return to you and make sure you get daily or every-other-day attention - you punish me? I feel tricked by you! The first few times I took you for a walk you made me feel sooooooo good, I felt like no time had passed since we last walked a good brisk walk. Then yesterday BOOM, it was like you decided to let me have it for all the months of neglect. Within a few minutes of walking or actually running you let me have it. But dear Elliptical I persevered. That's right, despite the pain in my shins, hips and even my feet I kept moving and I know we will be over this spat soon as I will be visiting with you so regularly you will be begging me to give you a break!
Thanks for being there despite my lack of commitment, with you on my side I KNOW I can do this!
