On the Fly

Between my morning workout, dentist appointment and commute back to Orlando from St. Pete this morning, I didn’t have time to put together a morning post.

I ate breakfast on the fly and didn’t snap any photos, but you don’t need a camera to document a good workout now, do ya?

Today’s workout included some light cardio interspersed with total-body weight training that looked like this:

  • 10 min. stair master
  • Leg extensions
  • Squats
  • Hamstring curls
  • Deadlifts
  • Bicep curls
  • Tricep extensions
  • Shoulder raises
  • Tricep pull-downs
  • 10 min. run

I completed the entire workout in about an hour and was showered and sitting in a chair at the dentist’s office before I knew it.

Good news: No cavities!

The dental hygienist said I’ve been doing an excellent job on my flossing.

About a year ago I learned the secret to receiving this compliment from the dentist. Simply floss right before you go to the dentist. It makes your gums less sensitive and less likely to bleed, which basically screams “This is the first time I’ve flossed in months!”

Not that I advocate not flossing or tricking your dentist or anythingโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Once I got to work, I had a bunch of things on my plate and was a busy little bee until I broke to enjoy this meal.

'Dilla!

Peach Greek Yogurt

Not a bad grab-whatever-you-can meal!

My lunch included a quesadilla prepared on a whole wheat tortilla with kidney beans and steamed broccoli and a cup of peach Greek yogurt.

It wasn’t anything mind-blowing, but it was tasty and nutritious. A successful lunch in my book!

Question of the Afternoon

Would you rather visit the doctor or the dentist?

I hate needles and basically anything medical, so I’d pick the dentist every time!

I still see the dentist who cleaned my teeth throughout college back in St. Pete because I trust him and know he won’t hurt me. He’s filled a few cavities in my mouth, which involved shots, and used this numb-y stuff that made it painless to numb my mouth before the shot (I just felt pressure), so I no longer get nervous about trips to the dentist! HUGE victory for me.

No Cavities!

Woop, woop! No cavities for this girl.

Happy Tooth!

Though I do not enjoy the teeth-cleaning process, I love the feeling of super-slick teeth after a dentist appointment. So fresh and so clean, clean.

On the Road Again

After my dentist appointment, I hit the road to head back to Orlando to make it to work at a decent hour.

Fortunately traffic was virtually non-existent (Yay!) and I made it to the office in around 90 minutes, and that time includes a pit stop at Starbucks for a light mocha Frappuccino.

Yum!

Lunch

My lunch today came right out of my emergency food drawer.

I keep my bottom desk drawer stocked with foods I can reach for in a pinch. It’s saved me several times when we’ve been completely out of food at home.

Today, I reached for a can of Progresso light chicken vegetable rotini.

I also enjoyed a coffee bean dark chocolate Attune bar and pistachio Greek yogurt pudding for dessert.

Ahhh, The Dentist

I stayed the night in St. Pete at my parents’ house because I have an early morning dentist appointment in town.

You might be wondering, why don’t I just get a dentist in Orlando?

It’s quite simple really. I am terrified of all things medical and I love my dentist. He has a great track record of filling cavities and making every dental experience pain-free.

How do you feel about visiting the dentist or doctor?

When I say I’m terrified of medical things, I’m not kidding. I hate needles and blood and have to lay down to get a shot. I don’t even have my ears pierced. My mom is a nurse… but my dad is the same way as me. We’re big babies! ๐Ÿ˜€

This morning, I had a quick workout:

  • 10 min. stair master
  • total-body weights
  • 10 min. elliptical

I’ll be enjoying breakfast on the run (protein bar + Chobani raspberry Greek yogurt), as I head out for my dentist appointment before driving back to Orlando to get to work!

Breakfast on the Go!

Cross your fingers for no cavaties!!
