The baby made me eat it! - Page 4
Haurelia; I think you're right about the fizziness, that seems to be the part I crave most.
I feel so guilty for eating so badly at the moment. I know it's bad for both me and the baby, but it's so hard to resist. I do wonder if the bad food is making me feel worse in the long run, but it's so hard staying healthy when I feel ill and have all these unhealthy cravings.
Don't feel guilty! Just do your best and carry on; soon enough, you'll feel better and get back to healthy eating. I'm shooting for 80% good, 20% not so good. Last night's supper was french fries, with an ice cream/hot fudge sauce evening treat (only because my aunt made this awesome hot fudge sauce and practically forced us to take some home and it needed to be used). Tonight we're having salad, veggie fritatta and roasted potatoes. No ice cream.
I have been drinking the sparkling water too. It keeps me away from the soda. I crave diet soda of all things and I definitely don't want to drink that. And all the unhealthy stuff I have been eating, I just keep telling myself I'll feel better one day and then I can worry about eating well.
I agree! For myself, I'm just trying to be mindful that I don't have to obey all cravings, and usually, I'm just plain hungry. If I stick something healthy in my mouth, the crave usually goes away. So far, anyhow.
Good plan, Haurelia. It doesn't help that my MIL is a feeder and hasn't the first clue about healthy food! She got me a battenburg cake yesterday (my favourite) and was the supplier of the coke.
I'm still eating my DF's yummy thai curry which is very healthy, so it's not all bad. One good craving I'm getting is roasts; we're having slow roast pork on Friday, and my Dad's making me roast chicken when I visit on Saturday.
That was me on Friday! I hate cod but love halibut. There is only one fish n chips place in my city that sells halibut, and they only have it on Fridays. We called Friday morning and they said it would be ready by 3pm. We went at 3:30pm, and their halibut was late. We left, ran errands, came back at 5pm so I could have my halibut and chips It was AWESOME.
I feel a little bad but I haven't taken sushi off the list of foods I can eat and I don't intend to. I require sushi to survive. This just gives me incentive to ONLY eat good sushi (no farmed salmon for me!) from really good sushi places instead. I've agreed to really limit the amount of tuna sashimi I eat but all the non-top predator fishies go in my mouth.
I want SUSHI!!!!!! my son & i eat it at least once a week....
my OBGYN told me not to eat it (due to listeria)...i tried to argue with him and say that the restaurant we go to gets top of the line quality fish
BUT he still said no (yet he said i could have one espresso a day...which i opted not to do)...grrrrrr....i have been craving it for the past week & the veggie maki just does not cut it!
now i wonder if i had a midwife, would she subject the same restrictions on me?
(living sky i am on the prairies too in edmonton: are you freezing right now? yesterday it was -44 C/ -47.2F with windchill).
Me too... I keep wanting to buy a bunch of something that I can stomach, but the next day I can't stand the though of it.
