There are two types of people in this world. Those with a sugar tooth, and those with a ...salty tooth? I was always one to go for the salty options- chips, beef jerky, cheese. My mom used to tell me that I took after her in that department. Neither of us has ever had much of a sweet tooth.
I got pregnant with my third child, and something in me changed. Not to
mention that every single thing about my pregnancy with my daughter was
different than my pregnancies with my boys, I wanted nothing but sweet
stuff. I wanted waffles for
breakfast every morning. I ate cookies & cream ice cream pretty much every night
after dinner. I became obsessed with giant blueberry muffins from
the bakery. I was a fiend for anything sweet! I figured these were
pregnancy cravings, but they haven't stopped since I had Olive in
While the intense cravings have gone away (lol), I
just had waffles for breakfast AGAIN. Damn it, they sounded so good! As I gobbled up my plate of buttery, syrup-sticky waffles I thought: "I
need to kill this sweet tooth." I haven't lost any pregnancy
weight, and I know that the sugar isn't helping matters! So far I've
been blaming breastfeeding; I really feel like it's coming in to play
here. I just want to eat all the time and I never
feel full. It's annoying.
My will-power seems to have taken a hiatus, so next time I run
in to you at the store and you notice that my cart is filled with
nothing but ice cream, muffins, and brownie mix... don't judge me. I'm
judging myself enough for the both of us!! Ugh.
(but not in the sense that I have money)
