Resolution #3: Flossing

I really try to only do one resolution in each category but this year I have two in the health category. First up was exercise and now I’ve added flossing.
My mom will actually be thrilled about this one. She’s a dental hygenist. I’m not a dental nightmare by any stretch of the imagination but I don’t like to floss. All that winding it up on your fingers and jamming that little string this way and that way takes a lot of time and effort. Time is not in great abundance around here. I’m guessing that with practice I could probably master a good flossing technique but it just hasn’t been on my priority list. Until now. I am going to try to do better about flossing. I used the vague term “regularly” just in case I can’t quite master this one at first.
In hopes of making it a little easier on myself I have purchased a bag of Dentek floss picks. There is no finger-wrapping required with these babies. Thank goodness!
Honestly, I’m not sure how long I will keep this one up because I don’t have a real good reason to do it other than I “should.” I don’t have cavities and my gums are in pretty good shape. Besides, I’ve made it this long without flossing. Ok, enough with the excuses. I can read the picture. Hope Dentek is prepared to be a miracle worker. Here’s to flossing in 2011!
