Wellness isn’t just doing good for your body
I have a confession to make. While I work hard to take care of my body, I do a horrible job of taking care of something I am actually deeply concerned about- my smile.
Today I had a dentist appointment to fix a cracked tooth I received last month. I really don’t like the dentist. I mean my dentist is really nice and awesome, but I’d rather visit my gynecologist for my yearly exam than have someone prodding around in my mouth for over an hour. Siriusly.
But I don’t take care of my teeth good enough. I brush them twice a day but God knows how long it’s been since I’ve flossed. I only use mouth wash when I’m about to kiss chris or after eating garlic or onions.
I have created such horrible dental hygiene habits and gotten away with them for so long that it’s hitting our finances hard now that I’ve had to have 5 root canals in four years. And it STILL hasn’t changed my habits. Something has to change here, folks. And you are the perfect group to help me do it!
I wasn’t going to pass on writing about tooth health bc I don’t do it well, but then I realized if I post this and write about this as something I need to work on, then I’ll have 20-30 folks reading this that will expect me to improve on this habit. And that will motivates to DO SOMETHING!
Damn accountability group!
I go back in two weeks for the crown and then I set up my cleaning for mid April. Yes our challenge will be done but my goal is for them to say they can tell a difference between my visit today and three months from now.
