The Toothache Dilemma

Today I used my one of my bands for my 44  and did a slow bicycle crunch.  Using the band and going through the moves slowly made this a great move for my abs and also a nice bicep workout!!

I counted  a right side crunch and a left side crunch as 1 rep so it was really 88 crunches.

The workout for Insanity the Asylum vol.2 was the Championship plus Sudden Overtime (Fit Test).  Not gonna lie – I was dreading this one!!!  But – it wasn’t horrible!  It was about an hour and during the last 10 minutes you do the fit test part – as many rounds as possible during 3 minutes.  

I actually think this workout was a little easier than the Game Day one that was part of the first Insanity the Asylum!!!

All day yesterday I had a dull ache in my tooth/gums on the left side of my mouth.  I ignored it because that’s what I do!!!

Then last night at about 11:30 I woke up (I had probably been sleeping about an hour) in pain!!!Screen shot 2013-12-06 at 6.45.59 AM

The entire left side of my mouth hurt (not just a little) and even my left ear and my throat.  I propped myself up and tried reading thinking maybe I would fall back asleep because ignoring things makes them go away or something!!!

At 5:00 when I got up, it was just a dull ache (like yesterday) so I figured there was no reason to put off the fun of Insanity!!!

My dilemma is what to do – I don’t even think our dentist works on Fridays but I don’t want to experience another night like last night – Oy!!!  

What would you do?  Ignore it and hope it just goes away (that could totally happen, right?!)?

Happy Friday!!!
