Pain in my….mouth!

My day started at about 2am this morning when I woke up with splitting pain in my mouth. A day or so ago when I was flossing a chunk of my tooth or a filling came out. So I ended up with a huge hole in my tooth. It didn’t bother me too much unless I had something really hot or really cold…until this morning!

I couldn’t get back to sleep & Tylenol didn’t help. The pain made my head just throb…I’ve never had a migraine before, but I’m sure that is what it felt like. Because of all that I didn’t go to work or the gym this morning. I stayed in bed and rested.

For breakfast I made ff pancakes with 1/8c lite syrup.DSC07820

On the side I had 1 c fresh pineapple for a total of 5 points. DSC07819

I slept from about 10am-2pm and woke up hungry! I had a simple, but yummy lunch. I roasted 1 c potatoes and had 1 T of ketchup for dipping. DSC07821

On the side I had 1 c cantaloupe and 1/2 c cottage cheese for a total of 6 points. DSC07822

I just lounged on the couch all afternoon. The pain seemed to be a little less after resting, but I still didn’t feel better. I think sitting around all day made me just want to get up & do something. It worked perfect because it was supper time!

I made a favorite in our house…creamy baked chicken!DSC07823

Creamy Baked Chicken (4 pts/breast)

  • 4 6-oz chicken breasts
  • 1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cups Stove Top stuffing mix
  • 1 c. fat free chicken broth
  • 4 oz. low fat (or fat free) swiss cheese

Cut chicken breasts in half so you have 8. Place in 9x13 pan and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix soup and water. Put Swiss cheese on chicken breasts. Pour soup over chicken. Sprinkle crushed stuffing mix over chicken. Drizzle chicken broth over. Bake for about 45 minutes or until done. Check it at 40 minutes

My serving of creamy baked chicken was 6 points and I also had a serving of green beans on the side for 0 points!DSC07825

Well friends I’m going to call it a day. I’m hoping for a better night’s rest tonight and less pain! The good news is that I have an appointment at the dentist tomorrow afternoon to fix this!

OMG...that must have been horrible...I'm so sorry. I would have broken down the door to my dentist's office and sat on the person's lap already in the chair to get it fixed. You are a trooper!

There's nothing worth than tooth pain. So glad you can get into the dentist today. Good luck!
