Countdown to Christmas Challenge - Week 7 - Monday

No workout today. I got my wisdom teeth and 4 more extracted today. I might workout tomorrow, but mainly the stress just makes me want to sleep. We're leaving for New York Wednesday night so there's lots to do.

A little about the teeth. I'm not in any pain, but I'm not ready to try eating solid foods just yet. I attempted to nibble on a cookie but even the crumbs felt awkward. I have an immediate partial denture in my lower front and it's going to take a while to get used to it. And of course, by the time I do, it will be time for my "permanent" denture. I've got acrylic right now, and I'm hoping to upgrade to the flexible stuff once all the swelling goes down and my gums heal.

I'm mostly bummed that I didn't get my coffee today. It was a hit to my dairy servings!

hard boiled egg [2] & apple [0]
cottage cheese [5]
baked oatmeal [6]
cream of broccoli soup [7] w/ cheese [4]

Two teas and a little water. I got my GHGs, barely. Oh wait, no I didn't, as I only got one serving of protein from the cottage cheese. I think. I never know what's considered a serving of protein. Oh, and I had the egg, so maybe I did get my two servings. I don't care. I didn't use all my daily points, either, though I'm only 5 under. I don't care. I'm just tired and want to go to sleep. I still have 49 weekly points remaining.

Man my mouth hurts just thinking about what you had done today. On a positive note, you might get a couple of pounds closer to your goal weight, LOL!

In all seriousness, I hope you heal up quickly. One thing that a friend of mine mentioned when I got my wisdom teeth pulled that was a godsend was rinsing the sockets with warm salt water. I used an old baby medicine syringe I had laying around and rinsed them out three times a day. You'd be amazed that the shit you rinse out of there and how nasty they can get if you don't do that.

Have fun on your NY trip! :)

Good tip about the syringe! I am counting down the minutes until I'm allowed to rinse and brush my damn teeth. I can't do any of that until 1 PM!
