In other news, I have a picture of my new "torture" device. My hubby bought me this new Gazelle Trainer to help in my quest for a healthier body. The walking and treadmill has been helping me, but I have to admit that my hip has still been hurting me quite a bit. I hate popping advil all the time, so still trying to solve this in a healthier way. This machine is sort of like an elliptical machine, in that you glide your legs back and forth rather than taking steps and picking your foot up and down. I am here to tell you that it works, as I used it saturday and sunday and each morning it took a bit of moving after waking up to loosen up my muscles. I was a little sore- but amazingly- in my thighs and calves, not my hip! I am hoping this trend continues and I beat this blasted hip pain for good. I also have a picture of my bedroom. I live in a very old farmhouse. Old farmhouses often do not have closets, or not very many. For some reason this house had closets upstairs and none downstairs. The previous owners made a couple of closets in the bedroom- makeshift- and not really placed in the best location. After the dresser was stripped my hubby had the idea that we should rip the old closets out, use the dresser cut in half and make a new built in closet along the wall across from our bed with the dresser drawers as the base. This makes much more sense in the small bedroom we have, and we will actually gain a lot of room, since the closets from the old owners were put up in such a weird way......but it means that my bedroom and living room are once again a disaster area and I probably have a few weeks of construction to live around. I keep telling myself to picture it done when I look at it and not the mess I see now. In this picture you can see he has started to put up the new closet frames, but we are no where near close to having new closets at this point. This is his messy side. I'll show you more as we get further along :) Happy Monday!!
