I've been wearing the same pair of maternity stretch pants for 2 straight days and as pjs last night. I'm about to go to bed in them again in about 10 minutes. And they were dirty on the floor when I put them on Monday morning.<br><br>
I ate about a ten oatmeal chocolate chip cookies between 2:30 this afternoon and now (11 pm). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">:

LOL my confessions aren't much different.<br><br>
I wore these pants yesterday, and slept in them. I am wearing them today. I didn't get a shower until 2pm and then I put the pants back on. I did put fresh underwear and a tshirt on LOL.<br><br>
I haven't hardly done any housework, or at least I only do the bare minimum. I'm not feeling that bad...I could do more but I just don't feel like it! Same goes for cooking!!! My family ate out like 3 times last week!!! This week will be better...I went to the store and have a menu planned out and so far (after 1 day!) I'm doing good LOL.<br><br>
I can barely see my bikini line and out of sight is out of mind in my book LOL.<br><br>
I ate 10 frozen buckeyes last night. (choc peanut butter candies) If girl scout cookies were in my house I'd eat them all.

My main wardrobe consists of 2 pairs of sports pants, one t-shirt and one fleece pullover. I wear them over and over and over.<br>
If I go out, I have a nicer pair of pants, and one shirt that I wear.<br>
I have a lot of maternity clothes, but those are the only things I really like.<br><br>
I've eaten more oreos in the last 2 months than I have in the 2 years prior.<br><br>
I've been craving burritos for weeks now. We've gone through more than 5 packs of tortilla shells now (between ds and I). Do I get extra points if I just bought plain yogurt to replace the (tons of) sour cream I usually use?

Well I do have a ton of maternity clothes but that does not stop me from wearing one pair of brown pants that were passed down from my sister. I do shower, when I have to go out. I do change my undies and shirt daily. My food habits are not as bad but I did spend about 5 minutes looking for my cell phone before I figured out that I was talking to my sister on it.. Pregnancy brain at it's finest..<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut">

I have 2 bras that I bought from Motherhood and they fit great but they are the only 2 I've got. So I usually wear them over and over again. I also have one pair of my fave jeans and a pair of sweat pants. I have about 3 long sleeve white maternity t-shirts, 2 short sleeve white ones, and 1 long sleeve black one so that's what I wear everyday of the week (I wear the white shirts under my scrub jacket at work so I literally wear them EVERY day lol). I also had an amazingly vivid dream about Somoas. And I was LIVID because I wanted them and they weren't here yet so I was hounding every little girl scout I could find at the local stores. It all goes downhill when your dream revolves around cookies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">.

There is mold starting to grow in my shower and I just don't have the energy to scrub it down. This is in part because I've been using it as a steam room since I've had a cold. Maybe next weekend.<br><br>
Someone had to mention burritos. Now nothing else will do for dinner.

I ate half a bag of mini Reese's peanutbutter cups before supper last night. I'm going to have to do dishes tonight, because there's nothing left to eat off of and when I put down my laundry basket yesterday, dust bunnies literally blew across the floor. They are still there. I do have to shower and change my clothes on a regular basis, but as soon as I get home from work I change into ugly sweatpants and a sweatshirt.<br><br>
Oh, and at the gym the other day, I put my locker on the one beside the one I had my clothes / bag /purse in. I didn't notice until after my workout.

I work in a semi-professional enviroment, so I have been showering and dressing in clean clothes on a regular basis... BUT... I've worn the same bra every SINGLE day, since November. And I'm so afraid of it losing its shape, that I've only washed it twice in that time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: It's the only one I have that fits!<br><br>
I've had at <i>least</i> one dessert every day for a week. Suddenly I can't get enough sweets!

Hey, who are you calling "lazy?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I get lots of stuff done but I just do it in those pants (yes, I did change today for laundry purposes!).

Oh, I have found my tribe!<br><br>
I feel so much better after reading all these.<br><br>
I do have to go to work every day, but I work in an office in a church basement and hardly anyone sees me. So, I wear the same pair of pants every day for the entire week. I don't have to pick out different pants to wear, and it gives me less to wash.<br><br>
I went three days without doing the dishes. They just piled up on the counter. I finally had to wash them because I was running out of counter space.<br><br>
I have been feeling sick again, so I have been drinking a Coke (in all its HFCS and caffeine glory) every day, and I have been feeling so guilty about it. I have also been eating my weight in cheese every day.<br><br>
I also didn't make it to the gym even once last week, and this week's not looking too good either. (Thank goodness for the Wii fit. At least it gets me off my backside a bit!)

Oh these confessions are cracking me up...I love "looking for the cell phone for 5 minutes before realizing you were talking on it", and "locking the locker next to the one where you put you stuff"...oh yippee I'm SO looking forward to an increase in those moments (at least now I have an excuse).<br><br>
The bra thing is totally hitting home for me, I bought two new ones and a new sports bra, and I pretty much live in the two bras for the constant support, with the sports bra just on occasion. I went to put the one of the bras on and the strap broke (I've only had it for two months!!!) So now I have been living in one, was thinking I needed to get to a store, but maybe I'm alright, LOL!<br><br>
Oh and WHY do we have to keep mentioning GS cookies! Our rep hasn't even come by to take our orders yet...gotta go shopping this weekend and see if the girls have hit the streets yet...no one has stopped by our house <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Normally I try to avoid the temptation, but now that I REALLY want them I can't find them for NOTHING.<br><br>
My cravings come in spurts, first month I drank milk like it was going out of style (normally makes me congested somewhat, but I had no problems), had a very short stint of craving pickles, and now it's oranges...I am eating them like crazy! Sweets have always been a weakness for me, went away in the early months, but it's back like a vengeance. I have approximately 14 food items on my desk right now!!! That doesn't count the food items in the drawer of my desk <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
I am slowly getting more motivated to clean and cook (i have always struggled with the first one)...for cooking, it's just that nothing sounds good, until I eat...my mom learned this with me as a child, she would just cook something, so I'm wondering if LO will have the same "i'm not hungry" attitude I did. I have eaten out WAY more than I care to admit...we don't have fast food in our town, and mcd's commercials were really tempting me...luckily the craving wasn't so strong that I sent dh to town to get me some! Now it doesn't even sound good!

DH and I eat sushi probably once a week. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br><br><br>
I made a batch of vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting at 9pm last night because <i>I had to</i>. Dh had three. I had two. But later I had some BBQ chips.<br><br>
On my days off (I work p/t) I've been staying up reading until 2 or 3 a.m. and sleeping until 11 or noon. (and then I put on the same sleeping pants I wear pretty much whenever I am in the house...)

I don't get dressed to go out unless I have to... Basically I'm in my jammies all day.<br><br>
My house is a wreck and if someone were to really hate me right now and call CPS, the kids would probably be in foster care! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> I've never been good at making the kids do chores, but what's really bad right now is that the kids seem to have forgotten where the trash cans are, so there's trash all over the floors...which the dogs seem to love. Ugh.<br><br>
I send dh to get food at night, since I don't want to cook. I'm going to fix this later today, I'm going grocery shopping, since I am sick of fast food!<br><br>
I feel like a bad mom because of the house. I've never been a good "housewife" with all the cleaning and such. I can't scrub floors because my knees have been operated on twice and now I can't kneel...the last time they were scrubbed was because I got mad at dh and needed to vent! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"> I'm thanking goodness I'm not homeschooling the kids right now since they would be watching tv all day, not learning a thing! I'm really thinking that I need to set up a chore chart so that I can get some help around here... I don't know.

I must say it is really reassuring to know that there are other mamas out there who are not eating a perfect diet all the time.<br><br>
I keep seeing these posts about all the organic salads and yogurt and stuff and it makes me so guilty when I crave a hot chicken finger sub. (If you are from Western NY, you know what this is...yumm....)

I have 2 bras I've been alternating, and 1 more I only wear when the other 2 are in the laundry. For some reason even the ones that fit are really bugging me. The first thing I do when I get home from work is take it off!
