Another week, another Monday! Post-op wisdom teeth situation is going okay! I have now “pain” and have been eating everything I normally would (just with soreness and no straws!). However, my face, especially my left cheek and jaw is so swollen and bruised (I’m talkin’ black, blue, and red all over!), that I look like a crazy monster chip-monk if you will 😉 It’s really attractive! You’d think I’d be hiding out in the house all weekend…which I did…except for going to the grocery and for a walk. I’m sure everyone who saw me thought I was crazy, but what are you going to do! I just have a couple more days on the antibiotic and I only pop an Advil if need be. I’m also still wearing my ice-pack head wrap a lot since my face feels so “hot” all the time. The ice feels so good on it! At night I get some pain since I end up laying on my face and my mouth is closed tight. That’s the other thing, I can’t open my mouth very much. But all in all I can’t complain! Thank the wisdom teeth gods!
I had a pretty nice weekend besides all that too. Tons of cooking (more and more new recipes! I just can’t stop!) A really awesome post I have lined up for you on Thursday, a nice walk on Sunday night, really just the usual, but it was nice. Yoga was not as nice as it usually is. Going upside down and moving my head in certain postures made my jaw and head hurt. But I still was able to get in a killer practice. You just tend to have less forearm balance stability when you have a whole bunch of blood pooled at your jaw 😉
And now transitioning to Power Monday! I’ve mentioned how I love socks and I wear them all the time. You will rarely find me with naked feet, even in the summer. Socks keep your feet warm, cozy, clean, and they keep you nail polish impeccable! One type of sock I love most of all though is compression socks. I got my first pair through a giveaway and then I bought my second pair at 50%, because damn, they are expensive. That’s the only down side to compression socks. But I do think it’s worth it to have a pair or two! They are so beneficial to recovery, not only for athletes and fitness lovers, but they also provide great benefits to just about everyone and everyday activities.Read More
