How is the 'more energy, less knee pain' goal going? I'm working on it with you.

Amalilly has a new goal: my goal is to have more energy and to have less knee pain. 3 years, 8 months ago
I am working out in the water. Working on, among many other thing, strengthening my knee support muscles. Slowly working on walking with my rollator walker. Keeping on keeping on.
