Today I woke up early for work as I had an appointment with my dentist in the afternoon. Most of my day was spent interviewing applicants for our job openings, and that was both entertaining and tiring!
In the afternoon after work, I went to my dentist to have my dental braces put on. I was a bit nervous before I went, but the process itself wasn’t too bad. It did take longer than I was told it would, so I missed one of my meals. I just made it up with a protein shake as soon as I got back.
However, I will have to get used to eating with braces on; I found that I have to eat a lot more slowly than I’m used to doing and that chewing is a bit difficult as the dentist put some spacers between my molars. This is to prepare them for the molar bands that will be installed in three days time.
I bought myself a big tub of whey protein today so that I could still get my protein easily without too much chewing. Hopefully I’ll find a set of foods that will work for me as I adapt to life with braces. I’ll manage this and I’m expecting success!
