I was no-so-lucky today. Tooth #3, Surface O, which has had a ‘watch’ on it for a while now, is ready for drilling. I was hoping I had ended my cavity phase from college with a better diet, but apparently my poor tooth genetics continues to haunt me. I floss every day!!!
It does help that I my dentist and she says that the decay area is only on the surface and not a big deal. Still don’t want any needles in my gums!!
I’m going back today at 2PM. Luckily they could squeeze me in. Doesn’t make for a very fun afternoon though.
After my appt. I didn’t feel much like running and sat in my car to think before I left. I finally decided that I drove all the way down there to run and that I’d warm up soon enough, so I set out. Not 2 minutes in I felt the tendon in my surgery foot go. I’m not sure if it was wearing tall heels on Saturday night or yesterday’s yoga, but what I am hypothesizing is my posterior tibial tendon has been giving me trouble since my surgery in 2005 and I took about 5 leaps into my run and knew something was wrong. I’m hoping a little non-running will help it heal quickly. But OF COURSE the week I decide to train for a half marathon this happens!! My feet are just not reliable, which is why I haven’t ever trained for races before. GUF.
Do instead of throwing the towel I went to the YMCA in the neighborhood and did 45 minutes of Stairmastering while watching House Hunters. At least the episode was one I hadn’t seen!
Home for a quick shower and lunch.
I made a tempeh + plum jam sandwich on Flax Oat Bran bread.
YES I ate the tempeh raw. No I can’t describe the taste! It tastes like tempeh! But it does go perfectly well with jam, and it’s so easy to plop onto a sandwich. And lasts a while in the fridge!
Plus carrots with Maranatha AB
And an overripe organic pear
Every single bite was amazing in this lunch!
Back to the dentist I go. Then tonight I’m joining Karen (my mother-in-law) for dinner and a Rockapella Christmas! Hope I am thawed out of my numbness by dinnertime…
