I have successfully transferred old phone to new phone. The process was actually a lot easier than the first ten minutes of me flailing around would have suggested. Two apps I refuse to pay for I lost my backdata on, but it's not a big deal to start them over. One I use for keeping track of time and and out of work and activities which I don't have to report anymore since I got the new job, and the other is my period tracker which I mostly use to explain my urge to eat all the chocolate/cry, and the occasional trip to the doctor.
My old phone still works perfectly fine, and is actually still in good shape. I'd like more storage for it - and for things to actually save to the SD card without a dog and pony show - but otherwise it works well. I might still use it as my alarm clock/music player/app thing. The new phone has double the internal storage and no SD card, which I think will work out fine. Mostly I still marvel that people made Star Trek communicators a thing except about 50 bajillion times better.
As I do every few months, I'm overhauling my exercise routine. I've been having knee issues with the biking - probably from too much too fast and the muscles are unbalanced and pulling my kneecaps out of alignment. So I haven't been biking as much this summer as I did last summer, and hence, aside from the occasional swim every few weeks, I haven't been exercising much. I decided to get back into running for a while, train for the Turkey Trot 5k on Thanksgiving. I dug out some of my old running books and found a ten week training program, that also has a suggested weight lifting program.
Unfortunately running doesn't make the knee problem go away, but I'm hoping the weight training will. I also plan to sign up for the gym at my work and talk to the trainers there about strengthening exercises for the knees. Also the shoulders, since now that I have the serious chronic pain under control (I hope) I feel more comfortable going back and strengthening my shoulder muscles which is one thing my doctor suggested way back when I talked with her about it. We'll see how it goes. I'm resisting physical therapy because of the time off work it would require, but I might end up there anyway. I've been on a intense-pain-free streak for almost three months, with the exception of the labor intensive Pennsylvania German cosplay weekend, which fortunately didn't linger.
