Since becoming pregnant my hunger has been roaring out of control. My day literally revolves around what I will be eating and where. In the beginning all I wanted was Carl's Jr. but I only caved in once. Then it was ice cream (still is) and then started the cookies and milk before bed. Now I eat cereal at night, non sugary kind of course. I never used to have that much of sweet tooth. I enjoyed cookies and brownies, but did not covet them like I do now. I used to have such strong will power when offered up any plate of sweetness and instead would choose to go after the potato chips.
I feel like I eat pretty healthy (I always have) but allow myself the occasional treats. It is sooooo hard to maintain that eating habit when all healthy food does not seem to fill me up. An hour after I eat lunch, I am hungry. Then I snack and by 3:30 p.m. I am ravenous. Usually I try to distinguish the hunger with an apple, just enough before I go to the gym. By the time I get home I am famished. I must....eat....now..... Being pregnant I get away with eating larger quantities of food which is great by me. I get first dibs on everything and told to dish up my plate before anyone else. That I could get used to.
Most recently I have been dreaming about gourmet cupcakes. I LOVE cupcakes. When I was in NYC last my friend who lives in New York brought me to the famous Magnolia Bakery (as scene on Sex and the City). The cupcake I had was out of control and milk washed it down fabulously. The last couple of nights in bed before falling to sleep I have fantasized about those cupcakes and wish I can make some half as good. It is a co worker's birthday tomorrow and it just might be the right excuse to make me some cupcakes.
