I am loving warm lunches more and more as the weather gets colder!

IMG_7394

I whipped up a ‘5 minute’ stir-fry for lunch:

  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup chickpeas
  • PC Sun-dried tomato seasoning (LBD!)
  • red wine vinegar + EVOO

On the side I had a high protein pita by Pita Gourmet smeared with tomato paste (hello, lycopene!!!).

With a Naval orange. The sticker was promptly placed somewhere for Eric to find. ;)

Snack was a Present Glo Bar. Officially my fav. kind. You can quote me on that.

I also rocked the festive Candy Cane Lane Green Tea by Celestial Seasonings. I just couldn’t wait until Dec 1st!!!

So fresh and minty!

fitness

I had an awesome workout today:

  • 40 min. treadmill hill workout (speed 4.0, incline 10%)

I am always asked if I do the full time at that speed and incline and the answer is yes, unless I note otherwise. It’s tough! I usually do 15% incline, but I have been switching it up a bit lately to work other muscles.

I also rocked out Whittle My Middle.

My abs are feeling SO tight. I honestly am loving this challenge, even though I curse like a trucker when I do it…hahaha. You think I’m joking but I’m not. ;)

Canadian Oral-B Triumph Giveaway!

I was delighted when Oral-B contacted me to review the Oral-B Triumph on Oh She Glows. I have always wanted to try out an electric toothbrush, but I never wanted to commit to one without knowing if it would work. I didn’t want to review it without also being able to give one away, so I was delighted when Oral-B agreed to do a contest giveaway on OSG!

20091024134929_oral-b-triumph-smart-guide Now you know me, I typically don’t gush over products unless I really love them, but I am absolutely smitten with this electric toothbrush!

Oral-B.Holiday.FINAL

The Triumph works so well that I feel like I am walking out of the dentist’s office every time I use it. It removed my plaque after just 2 uses and made my teeth so smooth. It is a great tool for me since I have had to decrease my dental visits when my insurance cut out. I feel like this toothbrush will make the difference between visits.

The timer is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I admit, I was guilty for ‘speed brushing’ my teeth. I am often so tired I won’t put the time in, however since using the Triumph, I have brushed my teeth for a full 2 minutes, twice daily. I consider this a miracle because I am lazy. ;)

The timer guides you through each section (30 seconds in each quadrant) and then you are rewarded with a smiley face after 2 minutes. Maybe I am secretly a 7 year old hiding in an adult’s body, but this just makes my day!!

For a chance to win an Oral-B Triumph (suggested retail price $179.99):

  • Leave a comment telling me something about your teeth. Do you like the dentist? Do you go at regular intervals? Do you floss? Do you need a tool like this to give you a kick in the butt like me? :)

Rules: Contest open to Canadian residents only. Contest closes Thursday Dec. 3rd at noon EST. Please leave a valid email address.

Goodluck!

Don’t worry US residents, there is an exclusive US contest coming up on OSG this week! Think YOGA!

Tomorrow is the last day to enter the Glo bar giveaways! Click here for the US giveaway (free account sign up required) and click here for the CAD giveaway.

i have had an electric toothbrush for about a year now and i COMPLETELY love it!!! it really is amazing the difference it makes, and you’re right, it feels fresh-from-the-dentist clean every time you brush!! now if i could just get better about flossing more regularly…. :) hehe. i actually had a dentist tell me if you only have time to brush OR floss, flossing is more important!! go figure!!

When not flossing as part of a dental routine, something just doesn’t feel right…like putting your socks on over your shoes!

My step-mother is a dentist, and she had given me an electric toothbrush to tryout. I loved it and used it for 2 months until it unfortunately met her dog Molly. :)

I definately go to the dentist regulary, sometimes I go more than I think is really necessary and undergo laser for my gigivitis. This toothbruh would kick me in the butt to get it right for sure.
Flossing, I am a lot better than I was growing up, I am not sure my parents knew about floss. Mind you neither one of them have their own teeth. YIKES!!! (sorry if this gross’ you out) How things change.

Well, I was considering not boiling up my chickpeas tonight due to laziness, but after this post, I am SO going to make them. -drool-

I haven’t been to the dentist in YEARS, to be honest. I’m an avid brusher, but I spent my pre-teen and early teen years brushing on-and-off, and thus, I have 2 cavities that we can’t afford to have filled yet. :( I like my teeth though, I probably need a tooth pulled here or there and a little whitening, I still got a cute smile because of them. I use one of ’em regular tooth brushes these days because my old electric one kept dying on me!

…The smiley face makes me want it so bad. So. So. Bad. XD

I try to go to the dentist regularly ( mostly when I am in dire need of a new toothbrush ;) what! I am a student in debt :P ) but I absolutely FAIL at flossing and having an Oral B Triumph would definitely make brushing/flossing a more than regular occurrence!

I’ve never used an electric toothbrush. I always had great teeth as kid/adolescent until my eating disorder. Now I have no enamel and my teeth or so yellow and spotty. So another thing to motivate you to eat better: your teeth will forever be destroyed if you don’t!

I love the dentist! As a kid when we would go to the dentist, we’d get to miss class and my mom would take us for crepes after (they were beside our dentists). I still crave crepes after going to the dentist. I use to have an electric toothbrush-but it was a cheapy and somewhere along the way I broke it so now I’m back to just using a regular toothbrush :( I would LOVE to win-I always enter giveaways but never have any luck with actually winning!

I absolutely hate the dentist! When I was younger, I had quite a few cavities so the dentist was always assoicated with fear for me I guess :P I take good care of my teeth now (cavity free!), but I definitely do the speed-brush more often than I should.

10 Anais November 30, 2009

There’s a timer?? That’s awesome!

The dentist always gushes over how nice my teeth are, and somehow that’s translated into me thinking I didn’t need to floss. Let me tell you, I totally got off cloud 9 when the hygienist was like “um, you need to start flossing, stat”. I’ve been flossing quasi-daily ever since (hey, it takes a while for new habits to sink in! :P)

11 Jaclyn November 30, 2009

I would love a new toothbrush! I have been plagued by dental problems my whole life, fillings, root canals, you name it I’ve had it. But like you I didn’t want to shell out for an expensive toothbrush when I’m not sure it’ll be worth it. This sounds like the perfect thing for me.

Reply

12 Marian November 30, 2009

My first dentist visit involved me being carried in kicking and screaming. Not good. But now I go regularly for cleanings and have actually been flossing daily for the past 2 weeks! It’s *almost* routine. :)

Not a big fan of the dentist. Like you, I don’t have coverage right now, so I haven’t been in a while. It makes me feel guilty, but as soon as I get married (May), I will be covered under my future husband’s plan. I can’t wait to get my teeth checked out…I don’t like the process, but it’s worth it for the feeling afterwards!

I love my dentist so much. I moved away 2 years ago and have actually drove 6 hours to visit my family and to go to my dentist appointments.I try so hard not to be lazy at night when it comes time to brush my teeth but my tiredness gets the better of my way too often.I use to have an electric toothbrush and my teeth always felt like I had just came from the dentist.This much fancier one would great to try.

20 Leah November 30, 2009

I hate going to the dentist! Ive never had a cavity in my life, and they still tell me Im doing something wrong. I had issues with my teeth being sensitive for a long time. So now Im beyond careful to take good care of them. I floss, brush, and use mouthwash every single night before bed. The whole routine takes forever, but its so worth it!!

Hi Angela,

I would love to win the toothbrush. My three pregnancys were extremely hard on my teeth. I lost all of my top teeth after my third pregnancy and because my husband is self employed we never had coverage to get them fixed. When I was 23 I had them removed and a top plate put in. I am terrified of the dentist so I take care of my bottom teeth the best I can.

I am so embarassed about my teeth and none of my friends are aware that I have top dentures. I would be forever grateful to win this amazing prize.

Thank you.

I love going to the dentist; I can’t recall a time in my life when I feared the gloves, the tools or the really awesome recliner chair. I have been very lucky and have always had very gentle and caring dentists….oh, a regular visits probably prevented dental problems that may have created fear. My current dentist has told me that I have very boring teeth since there really isn’t anything wrong with them except that I appear to take out all my stress while wielding a toothbrush. I will be the first to admit that I am an aggressive brusher….never was an aggressive athlete but put a tooth brush in my hand and its like road rage on my teeth. I am the cause of my only dental flaws…this aggression needs to stop before it causes self-induced gum recession. My dentist actually recommended the Oral B Triumph but I can’t justify the expense on my student budget. I appreciated the review and may actually add it to my Christmas/bday list (my bday falls around christmas so I get a lot of combo gifts).

After NOT having dental insurance for 3 yrs, visiting the dentist was the FIRST thing I did when I got a “real” job. My teeth appear very white and whatnot when I smile.. I open up, yeah, different story. I have weak teeth and had to have a few pulled leaving some lovely gaps. SOO attractive for a 26 yr old?!! Hope this is not TMI. lol :) I would love a new brush!

41 Hayley November 30, 2009

Such great timing! An electric toothbrush is on my Christmas list! I never used to take proper care of my teeth until a dentist visit several years ago revealed I had 12 cavities. I kid you not. Anyways, that was just the ticket to get me to brush 2x and floss daily. I wasn’t gifted genetically with good teeth and think an Oral B electric toothbrush will go a long way in maintaining good oral health.

After so much money was spent on braces…I feel it’s super important to keep them clean and healthy. And a toothbrush like that would definitely do that haha!

47 Carolyn November 30, 2009

I grew up without a dental plan, and therefore have always felt badly about my teeth. They are crooked and braces are out of the question – my only recourse is to keep them white and healthy!! My electric toothbrush didn’t make it in my last move, and I would LOVE to have this on to replace it.

I have always wanted one, but the price has always been a factor, when I wasn’t sure how it would work. It’s good to hear a review.

Ugh I am ashamed to say that I probably floss once a week when I remember, and I usually only brush my teeth once a day – at night, because I am always in a rush in the morning! Maybe a fun new toothbrush will inspire me!?

Reply

61 Jen November 30, 2009

I am embarrassed to admit that we’ve fallen off the dental bandwagon in my house. We used to go religiously every six months (which, despite regular flossing & brushing, almost always resulted in at least one cavity for me) but we haven’t been in more than a year now. I try to brush (with a Spinbrush) for as long as I can twice a day, but my flossing habits are shameful and I’m sure I’ve got another cavity festering somewhere in my mouth :( Getting back on to regular dental visits is already high on my 2010 to-do list. We don’t have insurance either, but the money spent for regular cleanings + putting in a bit of effort at home is definitely worth it if it means we aren’t shelling out hundreds of dollars on extra x-rays and fillings!

When I was 6 years old I got my teeth SHAVED…yes shaved! Just thinking about it makes me shudder. Apparently the dentist thought if he shaved my baby teeth then there would be room for my new teeth to come in. I guess it worked seeing as I never needed braces, but it was a terrible experience.

Teeth… what a subject. Taking care of your teeth is very important. Brushing, flossing, eating the right foods, etc, it all contributes. I love brushing my teeth because it leaves a refreshed, healthy feeling in my mouth (which helps fight cravings too). The only thing I don’t do enough is flossing, eek! Amazing review!

Fabulous job on ‘Wittle my Middle’ today :) You are going to have rockin’ ab’s (if you don’t already)!

Everybody was guessing things like ‘went to the zoo’ and I was ‘nope, I got to go to the dentist! *big grin*’ I’m sure they were all less than impressed!

I completely love my electric toothbrush!! so I understand your love for it! I also have an Oral-B, though not the kind you’re giving away, but I love it! It pulses at the 2 minute mark so you know you’ve brushed long enough!

Also, that lunch looks phenomenal!!!

I would be sad that this is a Canada only giveaway, but I already have a Oral-B Triumph…freaking love that thing. Funny, it was my first “splurge” when I started working full time after college. I love the little pulsing when its time to switch quadrants and I totally understand the love of the smiley face.

Now what is it about this yoga related giveaway? I’ll be watching, I really need a new mat!!

Hi Angela!
I have always been really good at going to the dentist every six months but since I have moved to Canada (i’m from the UK) and don’t have medical insurance yet there have been some much bigger gaps! I’m going home in Jan for a visit to my friends, family and the dentist. Needless to say I’d love an electric toothbrush to keep my pearly whites beautiful =)

Hi Angela,

I would love to win this toothbrush. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it, but it’s a way too expensive for me right now.

I had to spend just under 2 grand to get my teeth fixed last month (a root canal and lots of fillings). For someone unemployed and no insurance it’s a good chunk of change, let me tell ya.
I had a huge fear of dentists and didn’t go for almost 10 years. I know, it’s embarrassing. :( But then one day I was struck with the most horrible tooth ache and had no choice but to face my fear. And I’m glad I did. Ever since then I’ve been taking excellent care of my teeth and will try to go to the dentist at least once a year now. I’ve learned my lesson. :)

Having one of these would probably make my dentist happy…and me too! I wouldn’t get a lecture anymore about taking better care of my teeth. I brush but am really bad at flossing consistently.

I haven’t been to the dentist in FAR too long, so I’m exxxxtra careful with my dental care. I’ve always wanted to try an electric toothbrush but could never justify the expense. That timer is a wicked idea.

When we were kids my Mom would sit with us while we brushed our teeth, she had a song she sung (in German) and once the song was over we’d brushed our teeth long enough. I admit, I still sing the song (but just in my head!)

My dentist looks more like what you’d think a plastic surgeon looks like than a dentist, so I always look forward to seeing her outfit…which takes my mind off the fact that she might inflict pain.

Hi there, great post!
I do go to the dentist regularly and love that fresh from the dentist clean. I did not grow up flossing and am find it difficult to get into the habit of flossing regularly. I always have great intentions when I come from my dental appointment and do keeo it up for a few days then I forget. The oral B toothbrush is just what I need to keep that clean tingly feeling in my mouth until the next dental appointment.

Once all that was done, I had perfect looking teeth. Recently I have been stressed and I am grinding again and my jaw has been killing me :/ As for my dentist she is fantastic.

I love electric toothbrushes and use one at home while I have a standard, manual brush at the office. I have never bought a really expensive electric toothbrush but have been pleased with the results of the median priced ones. A timer feature would be a great addtion to lower priced toothbrushes.
Since my mother has always had dental issues she spent the money on a very good quality electric toothbrush with changeable heads for the family. By her doing that I have been able to avoid some of the same dental issues that have plagued her.
I floss regularly since I cannot stand the feeling of having something caught in my teeth.
While I go to see the dentist regularly it is not my favourite place to be. I moved from a small town to a large city and the differences in dental practices were shocking. (My childhood dentist never used gloves and would not floss our teeth for us during the cleaning, while the new one did among other things). It made me realize that my former dentist was out of touch with modern practices.

Whoever ends up getting the free toothbrush will be very happy with their prize.

I always referred the the dentist as the “Haunted House” when I was little and hated going there, still do. Especially after problems such as a severe infection as a result from the surgeon taking out my wisdom teeth, took out the bone holding up the tooth beside it out.. Ouch!
Now, I’m in a regular flosser thanks to the dental picks! they work great and trying to be consistent with brushing, but worry about getting receding gums from brushing too hard (Dentists freak you out about every little possible thing that could do wrong).. Its a battle!

This is actually my first comment… I’ve always been a little too nervous to comment on blogs, but:
It’s actually kind of funny that you’re doing this giveaway now – I am currently in the process of booking an appointment to get my wisdom teeth removed. My old dentist said they were fine, but when I moved for university and went to a new dentist she said they needed to come out. I can actually see one coming out and it hurts!
I really do care a lot about my teeth – I brush twice a day and floss several times a week. I’ve never really had any trouble with them either (except a retainer when I was 10 and these wisdom teeth now!).
But, I will admit, I’m kind of a speed-brusher. And since I moved out of my parents’ house, I don’t really change my toothbrush as often as I should!

My Mom works for the dentist that I go to. It was great being able to go and see my mom at work. She would be there to hold my hand if I needed anything “drastic” done. Let’s just say I love my smile now but before braces I had too many teeth to fit my mouth. They were pointing in all directions. To have the braces be a success I got 8 teeth pulled (4 baby and 4 permanent), had to wear head gear (what torcher for a pre-teen!) and a retainer (which I am still suppose to wear. In addition I also had my wisdom teeth pulled. It was all worth to have the smile that I do today…cavity free. I have never had an electric toothbrush before but would love the timer. My husband brushes his teeth for 20 seconds and then rinses with mouth rinse. I love the man but he needs a few reminders to go and brush his teeth!

Hi Ang…A couple of years ago I was trying to get some dental work finished before the year end (benefits), so my dentist was working like crazy to get a crown done. The day I went it to get the crown on (3 days before Christmas) I told them it still really hurt and I was on Advil and Tylenol every day. Long story short I ended up at the dental surgeon 2 hours later to have the same tooth I was trying to get a crown on pulled from my mouth, it turns out it was cracked above the gum line and a crown was not going to help at all! It goes down as my WORST dentist trip ever.

I must say though, I am an addict to brushing my teeth, I brush soooo much probably like 4 or 5 times a day haha. I floss so much too (with braces you have too haha). I go to the dentist and my ortho every month too.. AWWW I can’t wait for my braces to come off so I can have a beautiful smile!! =)

I’m terrified of the dentist. When I was little I hid from my parents that I had a toothache for about 2 months, just so that they don’t bring me to the dentist! I had to secretly eat on one side of my mouth, so that they don’t find out. LOL. By they time my parents finally figured it out the tooth was dead and the dentist had to pull it out.
Now that I’m an adult, apparently, I have a problem with my gums and last year I had to have gum surgery… It took me several days to mentally prepare for it, so that I don’t walk out. LOL. Afterwards, I swore that I would never do it again. Anyway, recently my dentist told me that I should try Oral-B electric brush and what do you know … you have a giveaway.

When I was 9 years old, I was in a car accident…alright, I will clarify…a go-kart accident. For some reason, I got confused with the brake/gas pedal and when I should have been breaking, I floored it and sent myself through a chain link fence. This chain link fence was not attached to the ground and under I went…thank goodness for a helmet, or I would have had the bottom on a chain link fence scratched on my face and head…oh the thoughts…anyhow, I came out with some scars on my face and a missing tooth!! The tooth beside my two front teeth is gone…the cool thing is that I was young enough that over time, my wisdom teeth came in and pushed my teeth together, so you can’t even notice this tooth is missing until I point it out. I look back now and think how lucky I was to not have been more injured…but think that the fact I am toothless is a cool and interesting fact about me :)

I used to love going to the dentist as a kid! Maybe it was because of the plastic jewelry, the stickers reminding me of no food or drink for 30 minutes, or the free toothbrushes, I’m not sure. I still don’t mind it as an adult so long as we are just talking about a regular teeth cleaning.

Ha- this is just what I need! I am in desperate need of that ‘fresh from the dentist, run your tongue over your teeth’ deep clean! After every dentist visit I swear that I’ll start flossing regularly, but after three days (if that!) I inevitably fall off the wagon. How is it that I can be so disciplined about every other aspect of my health (good nutrition, vitamins, exercising) except for flossing? I’ll analyze this another time – in the interim I’d love to win!

I’ve been going to the same dentist for 26 years – my whole life!

I like flossing but I never think about doing it!

My last trip to the dentist was pretty bad… I seem to think I can get away without flossing daily but that’s so not the case, anyway since then I’ve been so much better and I’m flossing daily and my mouth feels so much better! I’d love an Oral B to get my mouth feeling its absolute best!

I used to work at a dental office so I better brush and floss everyday!! If I don’t floss, I feel really gross. It’s like a massage for my teeth when I floss. Goodness….I sound like a huge dental geek now. Anyhow, great giveaway!

I gave all my savings to my dentist…two years in a row! I’ve been taking much better care of my teeth since then, believe me.

I’ve never tried an electric toothbrush because I just can’t get myself to spend the money. Someday I’m sure I’ll try one ;)

When I moved to Toronto and found a new dentist, she told me I had NINE cavities. I cried. I was so embarrassed. How could I possibly have nine cavities? Turns out my old dentist put a sealant on my teeth when I was a kid but didn’t clean them properly first. He basically sealed bacteria into my teeth, so it didn’t matter how much I flossed or brushed. Luckily they were small cavities, but it took 5 dentist appointments and a whole lot of money to get them fixed. Now my dentist wants me to visit her every 4 months, but since I started doing freelance work I don’t have insurance. Teeth are expensive!
