If This Were Easy…


…I would be smiling

This week, I’m going to add ‘Brushing my teeth twice a day’ to my list of tasks. Since I started working from home, I far too often forget to brush my teeth even once a day, never mind twice. And that’s just grody.

I chose that for this week, since I’m going to be out of town most of the week visiting with relatives and going to a wedding in Boston. Brushing my teeth is both easier and more important when spending time in proximity with others, so I figure this is a good week to start.

I’ll keep everyong updated until Thursday, and then I’ll be offline until the following Monday. I’m planning to track my daily compliance on wall standing, water drinking and tooth brushing on paper in the interim, however, so I can update Joe’s Goals when I return.



  1. When do you brush your teeth? I fall into the same trap as well, especially because I have no problem brushing teeth as part of a morning routine, but when I want to go to bed, I want to GO TO BED, right then. No routine of any sort. I wonder if there would be some sort of later-night time to do it, like “any time after 9” on a commercial break or something, that doesn’t imply that you will go to bed right away.

    One thing which might help is that if you’re doing a “getting ready to go out and meet people” routine, maybe you can brush your teeth as part of that. It’s not right before bed (which I think is the more important one anyway — sucks for me :P) but it’s a second time that’s later than the first, so whatevs.

  2. I usually brush my teeth when I have a shower, or when I go out to meet people, assuming I’m not already late to meet them. It’s not in my routine anywhere, at this point.

    When I was still doing my face twice a day, I was being better about brushing my teeth, because I needed to let the first cream dry before the second one could be applied and I’d brush in that gap. Doing my face twice a day is also on the list, and I might have been better to start with that. But the teeth thing is really grody.
