Jan Week 3 WUB

Saturday, January 21, 2012

This week started out pretty well, but now it's just gone straight to heck.

Carb Cycling--was doing GREAT with this, until the tooth nonsense started up. I'm stopping this indefinitely, until I can get the dental issues resolved.

Workout Routines--Was doing MUCH better about mixing it up...

Rest Days--I got two of these in a row (three, including today)...but they were "forced", as I can't exercise until I get this tooth thing cleared up.

All in all, this week sucks. Or did suck. My face/entire mouth hurts so badly right now, I'm having trouble thinking. The entire right side of my face is swollen, as I've found out that one of my stupid crowns has gone bad. My dentist won't do anything for at the moment except to give antibiotics, and they aren't doing much. (But to be fair, I just started taking them yesterday). I had no pain initially, just woke up with facial swelling yesterday...and then the pain started last night. I just want to scream right now!! I've been worried about over exercising, but this wasn't the solution I was looking for!! I'm going to be out of commission, at least until the infection is under control. I'm going to try to call around Monday and see if another dentist will see me, and just yank the freaking tooth. It's a molar...I don't care a whole lot about it, and I'm NOT spending another 1,000-2,000 dollars on it...already had the root canal and crown, not going back for round two!

So anyway, I've had to pull out of my January challenges. I have my fingers crossed that I will be well enough to pick this back up again in February!!

    I second the Clove Oil. I hope it feels better soon. Don't be too hard on yourself in regards to your plan. Things like this are what we call "life"! :)

    Antibiotics should start to kick in in about 24 hours. Until then codeine is good pain relief and oil of clove on the tooth is supposed to be good as well. The clove I can't answer for .
    Hope you are heaps better real soon.

    You'll find someone good. Start calling friends and asking for recommendations now so you're set to go on Monday. Keep icing and take care of yourself!
