I Surivived!

I’m back home, feeling a little woozy from the Ativan and hoping that the Vidoin will set in soon.  Yeowch!  Evidently they had to cut out my wisdom teeth.  They said they were well-rooted.  Happy Valentine’s Day to me!

And I do have a piece of advice for you.  If they give you the option for a sedative, TAKE IT.  Even if your insurance doesn’t pay for it, PAY FOR IT OUT OF POCKET.  Ativan just didn’t cut it, people.

On an entirely different note, those of you who are trying to eat healthier this year may be interested in this:

EatBetterAmerica.com (General Mills-run) is giving out free samples of
the original Fiber One cereal.  As you may already know, Fiber One provides 57% of the average adults daily fiber requirement, has 0
grams of sugar, and 60 calories per serving. All you have to do to receive
your free sample is to sign up for the Eat Better America newsletter (URL
below). The newsletter is an e-mail that is sent out once per month that
provides recipes and tips for people to start living healthier lives.

Please sign-up right away for your free sample and help spread the word
by sharing this special offer with your readers.  To receive the sample and sign up for the newsletter, visit: http://eatbetteramerica.com/fiber.

We have been slowly but surely implementing better eating habits for our family, and Fiber One is always in our pantry.  It’s more than just a cereal.  You can use Fiber One to make all sorts of nutritious muffins that you and your kids will enjoy (I’ll post my favorite apple bran muffin recipe next week!), you can throw some into your pancake mix to add some fiber, you can toss some on top of your yogurt or your salad for a wholesome crunch.  The possibilities are endless.

And ironically enough, in our home, my children eat Fiber One for breakfast with milk and a sprinkling of brown sugar on top.  They ask for it sometimes.  So don’t assume that your kids won’t eat it just because it sounds revolting to you. 

And also, the Eat Better America newsletter sounds like a great way to keep on top of the latest news regarding current health trends.  I’m definitely signing up for that!

Alrighty.  I’m on my way to the couch with my mouth shoved full of gauze and a bowl of ice cream, hoping last night’s Project Runway is on my DVR.  That’s one way I don’t mind spending an afternoon.

  1. Did you not remember that Feb 14 is Valentine’s when you scheduled this teeth event? YUCK! Hope you feel better soon!

  2. I’m sorry you had to have your wisdom teeth out on a holiday. I remember having them out was one of the worst days in my life.

    Feel better soon!

  3. I hope you are feeling better soon. I had mine out 2 weeks before my wedding (when I could no longer use my parents’ dental insurance) and was fortunate to not have to take anything. I know that is really rare, hopefully it will be quick healing for you and you’ll be fine.

  4. Hope you feel better soon.

    I just checked out your question at Wardrobe 911 and am glad to know there are other rectangles out there. I don’t remember the last time I had a true waist. Sigh. Though I won’t complain as the rest of me is usually trim.

    Again, feel better soon and enjoy the ice cream.

  5. Isn’t it against the law to get wisdom teeth pulled on VALENTINES DAY??!!!

    Be sure to rest (as much as a mother of three can).

    I will eat some chocolate for you, cause I am sacrificial like that!

    Feel better!

  6. Hmmm…I’ve been eating a lot of Kashi lately. Perhaps I’ll give Fiber One a try. Although two bowls of that and my husband might divorce me! 🙂

    See today’s post for too much information…

  8. My daughter just had her wisdom teeth out last week so we feel your pain! All four of hers were bony impactions – she was so swollen we didn’t even recognize her. She ended up with bruises under her eyes! Yikes! Keep lots of ice on that face, it really helps – we used bags of frozen peas and tied them to her face using a scarf! Remember 20 minutes on – 20 minutes off and keep elevated

  9. I just bought a Fiber One Apple Cinnamon muffin mix at Sam’s Club yesterday, and it is wonderful! 3 Weightwatchers points per muffin. Definitely worth every point.
