I hope you’ve all had a good week so far, I feel like I have neglected my blog a little this week as time has just run away with me so here is a little update on what I’ve been upto.
I had been having a problem with my brace where my wire arch that runs inbetween my two back teeth across the top of my mouth had started to dig in to the roof of my mouth. Now I have had this in for 18 months so I’m not sure what happened for it to suddenly start doing this but it meant I had to take time out of work to go to an emergency ortho appointment which was a pain. My orthodontist was off and so the one I saw initially tried to bend it down but my mouth was so sore from where the wire had dug in he couldn’t do it so he decided to drill the wire arch out!
I cannot tell you how nice it feels to not have a piece of wire sitting across the top of your mouth anymore! No more food getting stuck in it, it getting itchy and just generally feeling annoying! I remember the pain I was in when it first got fitted and how my tongue swelled up,I was swilling salt water for days and could hardly eat and now it’s finally out! It just feels kind of empty in my mouth now and I have to get used to this feeling instead.
Here is an example of the torture device I’ve had in my mouth for the last year and a half!
Monday night I did a HIIT workout with T before our burpee challenge then went to choir practise, we have another performance this weekend so we ran through a whole range of songs ready for that, it was really fun.
So after a walking Poppy a mile and a half before work, it was meant to be a quick walk but we bumped into another cockapoo called Piper and ended up walking a lot further than we meant to, and a busy day at work me and T went to see my friend Lisa to deliver her birthday present. She has recently acquired a tortoise called Sydney so we had a little hold of him before he went to bed too!
After getting home and T to bed I did an ab workout then crashed watching TV for an hour till bed time.
Burpee challenge completed this morning before school,we are up to 16 burpees while the other person completes weighted twists now, its tough!
Today has been equally as busy at work too, I’m in a stage at the moment where I just seem to keep creating work for myself but streamlining processes,and rocking boats, at the same time.
T has had her 2nd swimming lesson with the school, it seems like she had a great time and is really enjoying it.
This evening we walked Poppy, ate and are going to watch a film soon.
We may have walked Poppy to the chip shop to get chips to have with our chicken and veg but after eating really healthily all week and working out every day since Friday I think today is treat day!
Tomorrow will be a standard busy Thursday but with the added fun and games of getting one car dropped off for a couple of days which means Scott is my taxi for a little while! I’m looking forward to another good workout tomorrow evening though and also getting T one rehersal closer to her ballet show which is at the end of June.
I’d love to hear what you have been upto this week,
Thanks for reading
