The night before, Mr. Pipoy asked me to put some liniment on my swollen ankle and wrap it with bandage. We didn't have liniment, but I do have the Oryspa Meditation Balm, which I often use whenever I have body aches. In the many times I have used it, it delivered great results, so I tried to use it on my ankle before wrapping it with a cloth.
I am not sure if you'd call it a miracle or not, but when I woke up this morning, my ankle was no longer hurting! It was still swelling a bit, but no more pain whatsover... just a little discomfort (because of course, all is still not well).
Of course, I didn't walk to Colinas Verdes today, but I did go out and walk to the market late in the afternoon. All was okay, although stepping up and/or down gives me a little pain. Nevertheless, I was so impressed and happy that I am now healed... sort of.
Before dinner, my ankle swelled a bit more, which worried me a bit. No pain, but the fact that my ankle became a little "fatter" troubled me. Mr. Pipoy just asked me to continue with the ice pack followed by the liniment, to help heal the ankle.
Today's food -
- 6:43am - 1 piece sliced White Bread (toasted) + thin spread of Magnolia Lite Margarine

Weather's quite cooler now, difficult to drink 15 cups of water, but I guess 12 is okay. :) I ate quite a lot today... I guess doing nothing at home makes me hear more of my tummy thoughts. Hahaha.
I am questioning myself if I will go out and walk tomorrow, but I will just have to listen to my body and make the decision from there.
