Welcome to day seventeen of the Sugar Free Challenge!
Tomorrow I am having my wisdom teeth extracted-eek! I will not be “put to sleep,” nor will I have laughing gas. However, they will numb my mouth so I won’t be able to feel it. I am going to a dentist who is more holistic, so I will take a dose of magnesium and L Tryptophan to ease my anxiousness. Trust me, I will be anxious. Shots in the mouth scare me, and they hurt! I’m planning on bringing my ipod to listen to during the surgery so that I can get my mind of my teeth (and so I don’t hear any drilling or whatever they use…).
I’ll be on a liquid diet until my mouth heals, so plan on a extremely yummy soup recipe tomorrow! (see picture below)
Here is today’s sample menu:
Breakfast: Pumpkin Spice Latte Granola
Lunch: Butternut Squash Soup (recipe coming tomorrow!)
Dinner: Veggie “Quesadilla.” Brown rice tortilla filled with sauteed veggies and black beans.
Dessert: Chocolate Covered Fruit and Nuts
Exercise Option: For those of you who chose to take part of the exercise challenge, your challenge today is to do 50 crunches, 10 squat jumps, 15 pushups, 20 1-legged calf raises (10 each leg).
THOUGHT-PROVOKING, MIND-PRODDING QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Have you had your wisdom teeth extracted? Any words of advice??
