Default Dietary confession time!

Lest anyone think I am a paragon of dietary virtue all the time, can I just lay out the truth about how AWFUL cravings and food aversions have been during this pregnancy? BRUTAL!

Right now most aversions are gone, except strong fish, but I have been craving poptarts to the point of ridiculousness, and thanks to some walking into my house from a coupon sale, giving in!

Now. This doesn't make me a failure of maintenance or indicate I have no willpower, but some seasons of life are definitely heavier on the dietary mojo than others, and this has been my worst pregnancy for cravings yet. I figured I'd go less insane in the long run with a few poptarts before heading back to lower carb, than obsessing until I binged myself sick. But it is still a bit embarrassing to crave something that doesn't even pretend to be real food! Talk about nutritionally devoid!

Just keeping it real, and I know you folks have been there, too. Still on the wagon, but definitely not with perfect adherence!

Good to know you're human! Sometimes I've wondered...

I'm good with dark chocolate, but I can justify a square of that - tastier, less calories, FAR less sugar. I am really sensitive to sugar and wheat so the poptarts actually make me feel terrible, but I can't logic my way out of hormonal cravings quite as easily. And being on plan, more or less, for four years, it is easy to forget why I swore of particular foods to begin with!

I'm remembering, though. Headache and tummy ache, now!

I don't consider any of the food I eat to be "bad" thus I feel no need to confess.

Having said that - I haven't been to the gym to lift for over a month and the time before that was over a month. Still getting plenty of exercise in but none of the kind I advocate most.

That's me and TTap - I love it, but I haven't done it since July, consistently. A few workouts here and there, but I've been so exhausted i generally hut the couch by two and can barely budge until I have to cook dinner.

Now that my energy is finally back I'm adding it back in and I've been doing other things, like swimming, but I tend to advise on what I know is best and less on what I might be currently doing

It's nice to know I'm not alone in that's at least!

I'm at 1600 for the day with dinner to go, thanks to those stupid poptarts. Dinner's probably going to be creamy chicken soup, which is about 400 calories a serving (too lazy to open my app and check), so I'll be over by about 200 for the day. Oh well!

Mine was pasta (spag) & lots of it with a little bit of sauce ...thankfully I found Dreamfields pasta. I don't crave / obsess over it as much. Funny when you keep some of whatever in the house you don't want it as much .

Shhh! It's a secret, Steph! Don't tell my kids, they still think I'm omniscient because I can figure out that someone stole a toy from brother, *just* because he screamed (and not because they vacated the area in a hurry, trying to look innocent).

I'll be back to giving out overly confident dietary advice in no time, rest assured
