Yesterday wasn’t really supposed to be much of an eventful day. I got to sleep in a little, grabbed a bagel and coffee to tide me over for a few hours since I had a dentist appointment at 11. I went there unshowered (sorry) expecting to be back home maybe in 2 hours or so. Wrong. I needed a crown put in over a filling that broke or something (I really don’t even know exactly what happened, but a small piece of one of my back teeth chipped off) because of my other dentist’s botch job. No problem, right? I did not expect it to be painful or to need as much novacaine as they gave me but it was a horrible experience that ended up costing me $482 after my insurance coverage. Seriously 50% is all you can cover? I will never understand health insurance. I am thankful that I only had to pay half but it makes no sense to me. I was there for 3 hours due to lack of dentists in the office yesterday and the procedure itself was done in steps that took forever. I had a horrible anxiety attack and was in a ton of pain the rest of the day and night.
Luckily my spin class was great last night and the pain went totally away for the whole hour I taught! It returned right after, of course. I picked up this class last minute Thursday night so I didn’t have time to prep a new playlist. My next classes are next Friday however more may become available so I have to work on a new playlist today. I love, love picking songs for my classes! I keep getting great compliments to both me and the front desk that the members are loving my classes and especially my music.
I was forced to eat soft foods for the rest of the day yesterday and needed carbs to fuel me up for my class and a short run before class. I stopped by Whole Foods in Columbus Circle on my way home and grabbed a Jamba Juice. I would normally never get anything here but desperate times. I ordered a blueberry-strawberry-banana drink off the kid’s menu that had no milk or anything added just the 3 fruits.
$3 for this tiny thing! Which would come back to haunt me hours later during class. I can’t digest smoothies properly for some reason. I had such bad heartburn I thought I was going to puke all over my bike. Fail.
Dinner was something quick, easy, and soft. Cold sesame noodles and spicy tuna sushi. This still took me an hour to eat because my mouth was so sensitive, but so good!
This was not eaten yesterday but a couple of days ago at work. This flavor is so good! Topped with a little peanut butter and a broken up sea salt chocolate square.
Oh yeah, yesterday was the first day in probably a month I had no candy/cookies/etc. I guess it takes my mouth being numb to lay off the sweets. Sad!
Have you ever had expensive dental work?
What was your workout yesterday?
