Natural Hair

This isn't cute anymore:

I’m 31, the new 30 and I’m closer to my goal than when I started this blog. Now I’m trying to stay on the path that will get me healthy and on the other side of the clothing store. I’ve had my revenge moments and they felt great. Now I’m ready for more of those great moments, maybe this year I’ll propel down something, who knows. But I’m held back by 40 less things.

So I went in for part 2 of my root canal. Just so you know, it’s not a 1 parter, no sir. I have one maybe two more appointments, but seriously at this point I wish they had just taken the tooth. It’s ALL the way in the back and a hygienist (not at my current dentist) thought they were my wisdom teeth. I must admit that error did not make me feel comforted, but I’m no longer there because they don’t accept my insurance. So this afternoon they cleaned out the roots and sweet lord in heaven that hurt like a sonofabitch. And again I started to cry, this crying thing is new, like being cold, I blame the weight loss. I started after the numbing and right as I was reclined, but I did warn him. Sweet assistant wiped away my tears the way a nurse would wipe the sweat from a doctor’s brow. I tried to go to my happy place which turned out to be me dancing salsa, but like I say, that shit hurt. So much for solids this weekend, oh well.

Oh, I had Pho and a summer roll and water, but man was it good, I got a small so although I felt cheated by the amount I got, calorie and fat wise I was happy there was at best a cup and a half of those heavenly vermicelli noodles.

Despite my mouth pain I’m going to go burn my 500 today and do some arms and abs. Always abs, I’m hoping once I lose my belly weight I will find that I have an eight pack under there. LOL

I think that’s all I got for today, my mouth hurts, I cried like a baby (throughout the whole appointment, good thing I’m going to be out for my surgery), I’m going to kickass at the gym because I’m not doing the elliptical or crunches with my mouth and I will be drinking my dinner and making a whiskey cocktail.


  1. OMG hon, you should have gotten the nitrous!!! My root canal was the most pleasant, happy thing I ever did thanks to the happy gas!!!

  2. Really!?! If I ever have to get one I will make sure I get the happy gas.
