An incredibly unproductive week I’ve had! On Tuesday, I had plans to run, but didn’t follow through. On Wednesday, I thought about some Pilates, but that didn’t happen either. Luckily, I did manage to get 30 minutes in Monday and 25 minutes last night. To my defense, I still haven’t felt quite up for cardio and I did only just get the medical glue removed from my mouth on Wednesday.
In nerdy news, my dentist recently gave me a soft bristle toothbrush for the area where the graft was placed. Easily excited, I hurried home to unwrap my new toy. As I was tearing off the plastic, I realized that I wasn’t opening just any ordinary toothbrush; I was holding the Nimbus toothbrush! The bristles were the softest I’d ever felt and it took everything in me not to attempt a Quidditch match with it.
All joking aside, if you have sensitive or thin gums, or if you’re just a vigorous brusher, I highly recommend investing in one of these. You can either order them directly from their website or ask your dentist if they can order one for you.
That’s all I have. See what I mean about the lack of productivity?!
