Anyone else experiencing these kind of cravings? Could I possibly be the ONLY one?! Why am I craving junk?? : I feel guilty. I mean, I'm still eating what I regularly do...I'm just wanting chocolate and stuff more. KWIM? But WHY? I feel like such a junk food junkie. I've been having more chocolate than usual and wild oats natural cola (which I NEVER drink but I don't feel as bad to have a little since it has no HFCS in it). The main chip craving is cheesy puffs. I bought a bag last week and got some plain potato chips a couple days ago. I buy organic so it's not "as bad" but still. I feel guilty cuz we NEVER have chips or soda in the house. What's up w/ me?!
I am 36 weeks along and just wanting wanting and wanting JUNK...nad having the Easter candy in the house isn't helping...
I know I should be reaching for the grapes,oranges,banannas,and etc but I find mysekf getting out another piece of chocolate or some pringles..I even had root beer with dinner...
AHHH!!!...The madness of it all...
Enjoy these last few weeks is what I think!
The chocolate ganache torte my DH made for Passover is *really* yummy, too I've only been eating a small sliver a day, which I think is doing really well

And last week I went to lunch at an American diner here and had a bacon cheeseburger with fries and a Dr Pepper. : : : My only excuse is that it's been 1.5 years since I last ate a real American-style burger. And we normally eat SO HEALTHY (well, except for my secret Doritos fetish).
Oh, and I don't consider my 2 dark chocolate squares per day to be junk food. That's my all-natural Prozac. My milk chocolate squares after lunch, on the other hand.... :
I've been eating a lot more junk the past few weeks--especially stuff in the ice cream category and even some Krispy Kremes (eek!). I'm trying to eat it on top of--instead of in place of--the healthy stuff, but it doesn't always work. In addition to the junk, I'm eating tons of fruit, as usual (as well as stuff like cereal and yogurt), so I'm sure this babe is permanently hopped up on sugars. Maybe that explains why she's so active?
I've never been a huge popsicle fan but I ate 4 of the those wide Edy's whole fruit bars at my mom's last weekend...I would have kept going if we hadn't run out! And of course there was a deal on Ben and Jerry's (3 for $5!) at Stop and Shop so how could I resist? Being the good bargain shopper that I am, I'm planning on going and buying three more! Off to my midwife appt. to check my weight gain!

I went on a fruit bar (popsicle) kick for at least a month. Fruit bars, yogurt, and chocolate are my biggest cravings. I think I'm finally over my "need" for yogurt. It's funny, I was the same way when I was pg w/ dd. I HAD to have at least ONE yogurt a day for pretty much the whole pg. Maybe it's cuz I'm towards the end of pg that I don't really crave it anymore. But I ALWAYS crave chocolate.
I try to balance it out at least...like eating a bunch of baby carrots, some thai pork green bean curry over brown rice, THEN ice-cream.

French fries... mmmmm.... milkshakes.... mmmm.... chocolate eggs..... mmmmm...
