Well, saw the dentist today.
She said I need to eat soft foods for about a month because my front tooth is loose *but* everything is still connected. I've got to go back for a check up in a week to see how it's doing.
I hope that it will stop feeling that weird loose feeling. It's funny it takes you back to childhood when you get excited for that 20c the tooth fairy is going to leave under your pillow.
Of course inflation hit and I'm pretty sure it's about $1 if not more now.
So, I need suggestions for soft foods I can eat. I start a new plan next week. I bought a $2 scoopon that sets out my weekday cooking for the next 3 months (well I upgraded and paid $9 for the next 9). So, it will be interesting to see how things go. Will I find stuff I love and stuff I hate? I'm sure I will.
But, I'm going to give everything a go. If I don't eat it I know there are other people who will.
I saw my 'lifestyle consultant' today. She gave me fliers for a few courses I'm going to do with my friend Shirl. I'm sad the food one was all booked up. I'm annoyed that two of them were on at the same time too. I really wanted to do both.
Reminds me of 3rd year uni when I really really wanted to do puppetry. I'd saved it for my third year and when was it on? When I had a core component that I had no choice not to do if I wanted to graduate. I was so sad.
I'm going to look into volunteering at the RSB when I get home. My grandfather was legally blind. My mother is legally blind. Some friends are legally blind. It's something I'd really like to give back to. Every since I was a kid if I saw a money box guide dog I'd be popping some money in to help raise funds for the guide dogs.
I think I'll be good to get back on the horse and start walking again tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it.
I've fallen off the wagon foodwise since the fall because of the soft foods thing. But, I'm getting back on and screaming YEEEHAAA! I've got about 6 weeks before I go away - that's a chance to lose 6kgs. If only I could find a scale to see what I do weigh now so I could know where I am actually starting from.
Still, I have a measuring tape and I measured the other day. I think it'll be a Saturday thing. I'm going to start using the exercise videos on here as well. I have a fit ball to pump up. I only have .5kg weights but it's a start. I need to get a resistance band as well. Then I should be right.
Maybe I should jump on the wii fit... but I don't trust that thing. It will tell me I gained 1 kg one day and that I've lost 4 the next.
