97. Making a Safe Return to Exercise after Hypothalamic Amenorrhea Recovery

Today I’m joined again by Lucy McConnell – last time she was on the show she was a guest explaining her recovery journey and what she learned and now she’s back but with a whole new role! She’s now part of the coaching team here at sarahlizking.com and heading up the Better Balance Training programs alongside taking 1:1 health coaching clients for HA recovery.
