So this week, I've been focusing on cravings..what causes them and how to deal with them. Okay, actually I've been more focused on identifying them and satisfying them and I'm getting really good at that part. And, yes, I'm talking about food cravings. Stay with me now. :) Any other kind of cravings will be discussed on a secret blog only a few people with similar cravings know about. (Just kidding, Mom! There really isn't a secret blog, so DON'T go looking for it, okay? Seriously, I'm JUST kidding.)
Anyway, this week I've been craving mayo and tomato sandwiches. I've tried to make it healthy by sticking to whole wheat bread and low fat mayo, but I can't seem to get enough of them. I even had one for breakfast. I know cravings are said to be caused by your body's lacking something and since it wasn't a totally unhealthy snack, I just flowed with the craving. I find my life is a lot easier when I do that...But I've also been craving grape soda to the point it's become an obession. What is there in grape soda that makes me want it so? I'm not really a grape soda kinda person, I'm mostly a Mountain Dew and Pepsi kinda gal. I don't think it would be the sugar, because I manage to maintain a pretty good level of that. What else could it be? We ran out of grape soda this afternoon and I'm already trying to decide if it's worth the trip out in the cold, windy, dark night to try and find some more. Well, of course, it would be worth it, it's just that my lazy factor might be just a little stronger than my grape soda obession. It's too close to tell at this time. A couple nights ago I took grape soda and mixed it with fat-free frozen vanilla yogurt and made a grape shake. I tell you, I'm out of control. Maybe if someone could explain this obession with grape soda, I'll be able to wean myself off of it.
Or just tell me what some of your cravings are and how you deal with it. :)
