Hormonal, not hungry
I have a sign posted to remind me that I am hormonal…not hungry!!! I seem to forget and find myself looking around in the kitchen for a snack. It happens the few days before and a few days into my “cycle”. Sometimes it is just an overwhelming loud beast I have a hard time ignoring. That’s what I’m dealing with today. Oh the cravings! Mexican food. My husband and I call it “dirty” food, because we feel “dirty” guilty after eating it. That’s what I’m craving right now. Down right dirty Mexican food! I tried to appease my cravings last night with taco salad using ground chicken and it did the job ok, but later that night I failed the urge and had a tiny quesadilla. It tasted so good, and yet, was it worth it? Today I’m working on the same crazy cravings, maybe even multiplied in intensity. I’m working on a chicken taco tonight, hoping to curb the beast within. Time will tell. I’m just saying, it’s a good thing I don’t have fresh salsa, because those tortilla chips in the cabinet would be GONE!
Does anyone else go through such maddening, almost uncontrollable cravings. It’s seriously ridiculous when I think about it, yet in the midst of it, it’s all I can do to control myself.
Ah, well, I’ve stayed steady this week. I weighed in at 166 even today. It’s very slow going, but I think next week will show better (if I contain myself) since I won’t be holding in so much water…gotta love all the complexities of being a woman!
