Ugh. I just started my period today. I've been snacky all day. I can't resist food on the first day of my period. The second day I get that a little bit, but it's mostly the first day. That is the one and ONLY day in the entire month where I find myself unable to stop eating. It's entirely dependent on my cramps though. The more severe my cramps, the more I crave food. But even a very mild, in-the-background cramp will make me crave food. When they are gone, my cravings are gone (like right now I'm okay because my medicine kicked in, but when it starts to wear off a bit I'll be craving food again... and I only get cramps the first two days so that's why I only get cravings the first two days). It's only 2:40 and I'm already at 1500 calories. I'm just going to keep snacking on small things all day, and not eat a lot at once, so it won't creep over 2000, because ugh tomorrow is one of my bi-monthly weigh days.
I guess I haven't done TOO bad..
Plain greek yogurt w/ 1/4 teaspoon agave nectar 85
One pear 135
Piece of gum 5
Salad w/ ranch 450
Carrots cooked in chicken broth 150
Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup w/ milk 330
8 cookies 400
Not too bad... considering the cookies are the healthiest I've ever made. All they had in them were bananas, rolled oats, raisins, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. No sugar or flour or anything. Still.. I just can't stop eating on my period UGH. No big dinner today, that's for sure! Does anybody else want to eat food when they have cramps? (not just their period, but specifically just cramps).
