Is anyone else glad that it’s the end of the week? Between getting some bad news at the dentist (more on that below) and having car issues because of the cold weather and snow, I’m more than ready for the weekend. I hope you have some fun things planned. I’ll be spending my weekend at yoga teacher training.
In usual Friday fashion over here at Get Fit Fiona, today I’m sharing some of my favorite things.
I went out for lunch with my dad yesterday. Appetizers were half price, so we decided to try the Gold ‘N’ Salty Pretzel Bites. We both thought that they were delicious. They were soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
The dip that the soft pretzels came with was really good too. It was a combination of mustard, garlic, and spice – so perfect to pair with the pretzel bites. I’d definitely recommend getting them if you have a Hudson’s near you.
Dentists who get anxiety
I Wednesday I had to go to a specialist to get a sore tooth looked at. Dentist appointments definitely aren’t my favorite. The last time I got major dental work done I had a panic attack while I was in the chair. Needless to say it was a terrible experience – one that I don’t want to experience again.
Once the specialist figured out what was wrong and told me my treatment options, I told him I was really apprehensive and anxious about it. He’s the first dentist I’ve been to to take the time to ask me about my anxiety and try to understand it. We talked about some ways to deal with the anxiety. While I’m still not happy about getting more dental work done, I’m feeling much more at ease knowing that we have a plan to deal with the anxiety and keep it to a minimum. How do you deal with anxiety about doing to the dentist?
Mr Pink Mead from Fallentimber Meadery
Fallentimber is a local meadery that makes the most delicious mead. Fallentimber is a local company – they’re just outside of Calgary. My favorites from them are their sweet mead and meadjito (think of a combination of mead and a mojito). The meadjito is perfect for hot summer days when you want something cool and refreshing.
Fallentimber recently came out with a new flavor – My Pink. Considering how much I like their other meads, I was excited to try this one. I wasn’t disappointed. It was so good with the apple and raspberry flavors coming through.
