I was given the option to have braces, but being 14 years old, I figured it didn’t matter and I decided against being a metal mouth.
Fast forward 10 years and I was self-conscious about my “fangs.” I had two teeth on either side of my two front teeth that stuck out a bit. It bothered me for years, and once I saved up enough money, I paid a visit to the orthodontist to see if I was a candidate for Invisalign (clear braces). Thankfully I was, and now, a little more than a year later, I’m almost done! Phew!
This morning I have my last appointment before we enter the “refinement” period where my orthodontist said she’ll work with me until I am 100 percent satisfied. She’s the best!
Today’s workout was all over the place! Clearly my mind was racing this morning and I couldn’t stand to do one cardio machine for more than 15 minutes at a time.
Here’s my cardio breakdown:
- 15 min. stairmaster
- 15 min. elliptical
- 1 round of the At Home Cardio Blast circuit
- 5 minutes arc trainer
- 5 minutes elliptical
I was hoppin’ around like a crazy lady!
Post-workout I came home craving a hot breakfast which was odd considering I was sweating like mad.
I guess the body wants what it wants!
A bowl of strawberry shortcake hot cereal sounded perfect.
Into the mix went:
- 1 serving Flax-Z-Snax butter pecan hot cereal (Just FYI, according to Netrition.com, Flax-Z-Snax’s nurtitional information is a little sketchy…)
- 1 scoop All the Whey cup cake batter protein powder
- Three large frozen strawberries
After adding water and microwaving the mix for a minute (stirring regularly to prevent overflow), my breakfast was ready for eatin’.
I wolfed this down in quite the un-ladylike manner. 😉
Aaaand I’m off to my Invisalign appointment. Catch ya lata!
