Okay, this is probably the post that shouldn’t be, but I was thinking about this the other day and never got around to writing it. Now that I have had a couple of glasses of wine, I am getting around to writing it. It may be because I am choosing to forgo the to-do list I have due to the vino I have had or it may be because I am too tired to get off of my chair.
Do you have any hidden secrets to confess? I do. My secret is one that I have been keeping for a while, but don’t like to share. Want to know who really made me think about it? Dr. Oz. I kid you not. I usually have his show on in the background & this one piece caught my ear/eye.
I don’t floss. Or didn’t. I do now. I have always hated things in my mouth. Dentist? No, thank you. I go because I have to. When they ask if I floss, I say “sometimes”. That is, or was, a lie. I couldn’t stand it and the last time I did it I ended up losing a crown! That ended up a huge debacle. I am now getting my teeth cleaned on a regular basis and flossing, too. I have been fortunate that I haven’t had any major dental issues aside from things that occurred years ago and I am just getting around to taking care of (thank you crappy dental insurance). You can read all kinds of info on flossing here on Dr. Oz’s site.
So, the questions of the day are: #1 Do you floss daily? #2 Are you keeping any secrets?
What I am doing about my flossing? I am now committed to flossing daily. I have a 4 day streak going right now! That is huge progress for me.
Does this have anything to do with being gluten-free? Kind of. Dental floss is gluten-free, so that makes it blog-worthy. Of course, this is my blog, so I can blog about whatever I want to. However, I want to attract readers, not send them packing, so 98% of my posts relate to the gluten-free lifestyle.
Want some gluten-free info? Some new gluten-free news: General Mills is introducing Gluten-free Bisquick & Hamburger Helper in the next few months. Anne, from Celiac-Disease.com, wrote about it here.
Hope you all have a great Saturday night! I am heading to bed here shortly
