Be Nice to Yourself!

Friday, August 28, 2020

I am heading to the dentist this afternoon for another root canal. I wish I had better teeth! I have always taken care of them, but was never a milk drinker when I was a kid. I don't know if that's my problem or heredity, since my mom had false teeth as long as I ever knew. Either way, I know I've spent a small fortune on my teeth and they're still a big problem for me!
The point of this was that I ate terribly yesterday, comfort foods and soft foods that I haven't had in a long time. I didn't exercise either. I started to feel guilty, but then decided to give myself a break. I've been very good about diet/exercise and 1-2 days isn't going to make me revert back to bad habits! I need to work on being nice to myself instead of always looking for the worst!

    I have always had problem teeth too. I need to go back to the dentist soon, but I keep putting it off. Every time I go, I spend at least $1000. And for what? I told my husband I should have them all pulled. It's okay to take a break from your diet every now and then. emoticon

    You're right sometimes you just have to allow yourself a break. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

    Do not beat yourself up about teeth. I have awful problems with mine despite super care. I have improved somewhat with a Waterpik. Mine is a travel size by Sonicare. Really made a difference.

    My opinion is that getting a root canal is major self-care! You’re taking care of your bones. That’s no small thing. So I’m just gonna say… Good for you!!
