This week, I learned that it is ridiculously easy to build a rack to hold stability balls out of PVC pipe, though I had to order the joints online because my local hardware stores didn’t carry 1-inch-all-around pieces. So it goes. Even with exorbitant shipping fees, building it myself was much cheaper than buying a pre-fab rack, and I was able to make it the size I wanted. Since I have a general track record of not successfully building things, I was very pleased that it worked! That and getting an award for this blog made my week.
In the realms of eating, exercising, and changing habits, there were a few interesting posts this week:
