Bouncer Trusts the Process with Pumpkin Spice


Recommended Posts

2.5/4 ...  I may have had a silent tantrum, and just told myself that I had space to do so. The phone was put away but the routine started well after noon. It allowed me space to deal with my emotions though which was a win for the half point. 

 

---

 TOOTH FILLINGS are complete! Yesterday they finished them up quickly! 

Next week I have a deep cleaning, and then the wisdom teeth! Whoot! I see the end. 

I think the one root canal scared me on the straight and narrow...

3.5/5

Got into bed by actual Noon. That was impressive.  Especially since I was following a dopamine train that involved jewelry shopping. 

 

We had our first snow today! Kind of wish I took a photo of my car, but I was just shocked by the amount. 

My heater also settled down! Whoot! My apartment last night hit the upper 60s for the first time since end of September (my dream baking temp). 

At last I've been annoyed with my cooking attempts. Brought up to my coach of my desire to order 'boxed meal prep" he said "great idea!". So found the best protein dinners on HelloFresh. I had GreenChef last year, found it helpful when I had moved into my stepdad's place. The cost had freacked me out then. 
I'm spending quite a bit on food with limited results, so maybe having something to help with the shopping part and just filling in between meals might help.

4.5/6 -Sleot well 3 days in a row. Noticing a difference already. 

 

Today work ended up announcing a company change. My worry is the insurance now, next week should be covered. But next month is when the changes will kick in as I plan to get my wisdom teeth done ... Whelp sleep is going to be important.

Excellent plan.  Paying a little more and being happier with the results is totally worth it.

5.5/7 - Not bad for the first week. 

I remember saying I had a good night sleep on Friday. So must have followed through. 

 

Work ended up announcing a company change. I don't understand the logistics but one company that tried to be in MN didn't workout in the end. Now another is starting up with my account being their biggie. 

I'm worried about insurance, the last company just wrecked me for trust. And with my pain levels I decided I'll have my wisdom teeth extraction during an optional consultation. 

So instead of Halloween I will be celebrating hopefully completing my dental care. 😬

Thank you! 

I ended up finding a local business that has frozen meal packs (I mainly cook them to unfreeze and finish the cooking process). Been trying it since I found out on Sunday (very flavorful food that is better quality than the convenient food I have been buying otherwise). Will be part of the challenge as I will give myself time to create that today or tonight!

Just for my own sakes update: My gums are either the same or getting better. This was my last "heavy cleaning" though more painful than I remember the last one being (she was a bit more slower and steadier where the decay I knew was worse). 

One tooth that is bothering me outside of the wisdom teeth (that is the same tooth on the opposite side that I had a root canal last August 2021) is a OLD filling (from 2014 or pre-2009 - I had two fillings pre my current dentist). Where I need to see the specialist if that tooth needs a root canal. *sigh*. 

I will hold on that until I learn this week what changes of health insurance will be happening.

How did this challenge go? Consistency meh... Along with seeing how old habits can come back especially when I don't feel well and it gets cold (we had a 80 degree temp day and a day with 1 inch of snow within 5 days last week). I'm actually pumpkin spiced out. A coworker ended up buying me two pumpkin spice drinks from Starbucks. I also had a Pumpkin Spice latte when I bought a different coworker cocoa for her birthday (/WTF is this snow?!?!). I can definitely say the coffee I made home is actually better...  interesting 🙃

Realizing cooking is "meh" right now, where it usually gets.  Will start giving myself self-compassion by buying pre-made meals, meal prep boxes, or the in between.  While also practicing lowering my food waste, because it is making myself cringe (and would have my African boyfriend in tears).
