I need motivation (and an engineering degree LOL)

This is almost too embarrassing to admit, but here it goes. For Christmas this year I decided to surprise my now 13 year old son with a home gym bought from Walmart. It was something he was interested in that would benefit me in my weight loss journey as well. I wrapped up a picture of it in a box for him....there was no way to sneak it into the house to surprise him. So we finally got it to the house by the end of January. Now through the years, as a single mom, I have put countless toys, furniture, gadgets, and equipment together by myself with no problem. So this should be easy right? WRONG on so many levels. Here it is the middle of June and it is still only 75% put together. $250 dollars sitting in a room in pieces completely useless. Every time I get on a roll constructing it I will get to a point that frustrates me so much I walk out and leave it, sometimes for weeks at a time. Always coming up with excuses to myself and my son. Well no more! I need to get this thing together ASAP! So tonight instead of going for a walk and then cooking dinner, conveniently avoiding that room. I'm going to the store for sandwich supplies and going home to tackle this thing. I think with all the tools and maneuvering I will do to finish this I can count it as my nightly exercise.
