You can eat a lot of sweets, but don’t forget to take care of your teeth!
It’s probably obvious I consume a good amount of sugar, but I also take pride in that I take pretty good care of my teeth. Growing up I had a lot of cavities… like more than I can remember. I used to HATE the dentist, I had to literally be dragged out of the car. It was a combination of knowing I probably had a cavity and my fear of needles. As an adult, I’ve had my fair share of tooth decay, but the number and frequency has greatly reduced. The sugar consumption has probably stayed the same but I try my best to drink a lot of water, brush twice a day, and at night I also floss and use a fluoride mouthwash. However, right now, I have a small ache.. I have a visit with my dentist soon, but I’m a little worried that this time I might not be smiling on my way out.
In other news… I’m baking right now. Well, it’s in the oven already, and I don’t know how it’s going to turn out, but that’s beside the point. I should be writing progress reports, and I swear I’ll get to them in a bit. But I haven’t baked at home in a while and I was really missing it. Last week I was so busy that I dropped my laundry off to have someone else do it (I wasn’t home long enough any night to get it done and I was running out of many necessities). Anyway, the zucchini is on it’s last leg before I have to toss it, so I had to use it.
