Today was I’d last day of cross country and he did not run with his team. He has been complaining that his shin hurt for the last few weeks but he said that it would be fine after a day or 2 of rest. Well today I took him into the orthopedic place that I went to for my ankle and yup K has a stress fracture in the left Fibula.
K and I both now sport walking boots. I have mine on my right leg and his is on the left but we are both stuck in a boot. He is only on day 1 with the boot and already hates it lol. I only have a week more to be stuck in mine.
Today’s happy/healthy tip is:
FEED YOUR HAIR
What we eat can have an effect on all areas of our bodies, and that includes the appearance of our hair. So if your locks are looking lackluster, consider adding the following to your diet:
- Pumpkin seeds add shine to your hair. They’re also a good source of iron, which supplies oxygen to the hair roots, makes hair grow faster and prevents hair loss. Pumpkin seeds also contain protein, which is crucial to the production of keratin, the ha it’s protective coating, and zinc, which strengthens hair follicles.
- Walnuts can help if your hair color is fading. They contain copper, which is needed by the body to produce melanin pigments. Melanin gives hair its color, and it also helps to thicken and add shine to the hair. Eating walnuts may also help to reverse the graying of hair.
