    Actually, this is just testing my new pic, ha. Hope it loaded correctly, but I am going to throw on some shoes and take my dog out. He won't know what to think!

    I see. Will try to be patient.

    Lasted a whole 15 mins. Ugh. Well, I discovered something to take my mind off of my knee pain - back pain when I walk. Lovely. I noticed I can't last as long in stores, but I didn't realize the extent. I think my back pain will also subside as I take off some pounds. This is new, but I'm also at my all-time high for weight, so I'm sure that's the culprit. It looks like I will have to break up any exercise I do into smaller segments. It felt good to do something healthy for a change, gotta give it that.

    Good for you to surprise your dog!

    Fifteen mins. is all I could start with, too. I think breaking it into segments is a good idea.
