Beating Myself Up | Dente Complete Dentistry

Beating Myself Up

One of the things that I noticed when watching my own videos, is how fat my face has gotten this year.

I am upset with myself, that I allowed myself to increase 15 pounds.

During the pandemic, I stopped working out and I ate everything.

A combination that guarantees extreme weight gain.

For the last month, I’ve been consistently working out. I try to get in at least 4 days a week but will usually do 5 or 6 days.

The only time I could work out is in the morning. I’ve never been consistent when I did my workouts after work. I know that about myself.

Since my work day starts pretty early at around 7:00am, I need to get up really early to make those morning workouts happen. So I set my alarm at 4:00am.

Completely INSANE!!! I know!

But if I don’t do it like that, I won’t have enough time to get everything in.

My morning wake up, without fail, goes like this:

“The alarm goes off. And the first thing that happens is – I start swearing. I mean really bad swearing. Then I’m feeling for the alarm and finally turn it off.

I lay in bed, trying to convince myself not to get up. I have this internal battle EVERY SINGLE TIME. I tell myself that I’m so tired and how I already went 2 times this week and I should take a day off. And all kinds of stuff.”

Sometimes that voice wins but most of the time it doesn’t.

On the days that I win the battle against myself, this happens: In a really spazzy, abrupt motion, I’ll sit up and say, “F*** it! I’m going.”

And I’ll tell you, almost 100% of the time, I am super happy that I did it. I feel great afterwards. I did something positive for myself first thing in the morning. Its a great way for me to start off my day.

Many people have this internal battle when they go to the dentist.

For many people going to the dentist requires a lot of “psyching yourself up.” You know it’s the right thing to do, but we find a million reasons why we can’t.

We say to ourselves, “Work is too busy and I can’t take off.” “Nothing is hurting, so there’s probably no issues.” “It’s going to be so expensive and I can’t afford it right now,” etc.

These are all very REAL reasons why people can’t make an appointment and they are legit. But we’ve have been providing dentistry for a very long time and have solutions to any obstacle you may have.

Floss like a madman!Emilio “Wake UP” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
