This is getting to be a habit!

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Dentist again this morning, another molar extracted, two fillings done without injections.
That's the last of my lower molars, got five of my own left at the front and two screw-in ones, and a full denture at the top, so I'll have to go back and have a lower denture made, so I can grind up all that healthy salad!!
Maybe this time I will eat less for a while....

    Actually, no , it was ok. My dentist is a tall, blonde, good looking Polish lady, who realises I am a complete wimp and so we've gradually learnt to get along with each other. I (almost) trust her completely, and she has stopped telling me off for jumping and wincing!
Thanks for all the other comments, guys.

    Not fun; I have to go and get 3+ crowns done but put it off until I get back from vacation in March. Things that expensive shouldn't be that painful/no fun! Hope your dentures fit well and are comfortable.

    Wow, You have been spending a lot of time at the dentist. I don't thing I would go with out a shot when I have teeth being filled. Anyway it will be nice to eat and not have to worry about chewing on one side. Have a great day.

After the dentist...

Monday, October 03, 2011

He did such a good job removing my aching tooth, that within a couple of days I had forgotten it was ever there! Yes it did make me think a bit more about what I was eating.
So there I was, quietly fishing, later in the week. Just happened to stick a barbed baiting needle into my left index finger. I remember thinking, "oh s**t, that is gonna hurt in a few moments!"
Well it did, and I tried every which way to remove it, even tried pulling and teisting with a pair of pliers.
It would not budge, so I had to pack my gear up, load up the car, and drive 4 miles to the nearest hospital (manual gear change!!) for some assistance, all with the stupid bait needle hanging from my throbbing finger.
I almost managed not to comfort eat, but I did slip and eat about 8 squares of chocolate that evening!!

    I am sorry to hear about your finger. I hope that it is feeling better now.

Early retirement and redundancy

Sunday, February 01, 2009

Too much stress at work, been on 2 months trial period with new terms and conditions. Driving some days in excess of 200 miles, doing repair jobs for which I have little or no experience or training. Lots of problems with admin and other departments as well.
Finally gave in, took redundancy and asked for early retirement also. What a relief to get that decision made and out in the open. A weight has been lifted from my shoulders.Ok, I will miss the company car, and I will have to take some sort of paid employment to make ends meet. But it had come to the point where I was neglecting to fill in my nutrition tracker each day, just too tired to be bothered, so I knew I had to do something.
Now I have to make over my whole lifestyle, as well as my eating and exercise habits!


Family Funeral

Saturday, January 17, 2009

Mother-in-law's funeral was on Thursday, daily routine went out the window. Grazing at buffet late afternoon and early evening. Later that night, my sons took me to the pub where we had curry for dinner and a few beers!
Still some left-overs from the buffet sitting in the kitchen today (Saturday). Must throw out whats left and re-commit myself to my new-found better eating habits!
