August 13 - Went to the gym with Jane. 30 minutes walking on treadmill.
August 16 - Baaaad time at the gym. Attempted leg weights, my knee popped out and I fell on my ass in front of everyone in the weight room. Needless to say, I was horrified so I ended my workout and left.
As I know from experience, if you fall off the horse and don't get back on- you may never get on again. So I faced my fear and went back to the gym. I even saw many of the same people who witnessed my ungraceful tumble. Oh well. I turned my music up a little louder and focussed on the task at hand.
