As you've guessed from the title of this challenge, I have some recovering to do. A little bit of physical recovery (I've finally got some orthotics for an old ankle injury), but mostly I'm dealing with emotional recovery. My dad passed away suddenly on September 1st, and my mind is still reeling. Now that the shock has begun to wear off, I need to start recovering. During this difficult time, I've lost my appetite and have been skipping many meals and not taking care of myself. I'll also frequently forget to take my vitamins (something that helps combat my depression and fatigue). I've also lost the motivation to do most things I enjoy: I have skipped numerous swing dancing opportunities, concerts (there was a festival in town), and invitations from friends. This challenge is about re-learning how to take care of myself, and hopefully start slowly recovering. My dad's passing was related to his obesity (and his reluctance to see a doctor), so I am committed to this challenge with that in mind.
