My Goals:
Okay. Something personal. 10 years of severe health difficulties. Still messed-up but not as much as before. Too many bad meds. General health and metabolism shot. Past: bit too thin, working too hard, not eating. Present goals: learning what and how to eat and how to sleep. Movement and balance again. Straightening out the metabolic disaster. Learning I have a body.

Aww thanks again for your thoguhtful, supportive and informative response. Yes - protein! Good point! And I have a couple of powders now so will up my game.

Medical staff telling me to up vitamin D as well, to help with healing. That's a new one, but I'm on it. :)

May your weekend be filled with (non-caloric) delights!

Your kind blog response could not have come at a better time! Even though I've sprained my ankle countless times in the past, I always have to re-read which steps are best after the first 48 hours.

As with when to start stretching and moving it again, the "feels good" method is pretty damn spot-on I think. Thank you for the reminder that my body has her own wisdom and messages!

And I really appreciate the sweet sentiments as well. Wishing you a week of wonderful things!
