Past history, 12 years ago injured my back, neck and right shoulder; to-date I still sometimes feel pain in my back/neck but my right shoulder healed fine. Just over a year ago I injured my left wrist which still hasn't healed; going to the doctors next month to see what my options are.

Was out most of the time Friday, Saturday, and Sunday so was unable to lift weights and my food intake suffered :(
Good news is I got my protein powder (unflavored) on Friday (Gemma Pea Protein Isolate non-GMO 60%, Rice Protein Concentrate non-GMO 30%, Hemp Protein Powder 10%), taste great with water. Gonna continue recording my daily food/exercise routine.
