I’m a work out at home kinda gal so who would have thought I would be working out (half unexpectedly) at – of all places – the dentist?  Yep, I went in for a consultation/diagnosis and knew I had to have one tooth pulled and maybe the second one too if it couldn’t be saved.  But let’s back up a little…I haven’t been to the dentist in over a decade and part of the reason is I think too much about it and eventually scare myself out of the trip.  But this time I HAD to go…it was time to take care of a couple issues (one being a toothache).  So I’m sitting there having a nice conversation with the dentist and his assistant and going over my options.  I could feel my blood pressure rising cos I had to make a decision and I knew pain was going to be involved.  (did I mention I don’t like pain?)  Well, after having this urge to cry and run away, I make a decision and I end up getting the extractions – yes, plural – done right then and there!  What does this have to do with a workout?  Well, a good cardio session gets your heart rate up, right?  Need I say more????  I was flushed and almost sweating.  I could have sworn my blood pressure was way high but I started at 133/80 and when it was over, it was 140/80.  To tell you the truth, I don’t know what all that means, but I think it was still good….only a 7 point difference.

All I can say is thank goodness I had done my ‘real’ dvd workout at home that morning!  Becos I was in NO mood to do anything afterwards.  And this was just an extra workout  😀
