Grand Canyon with teeth

I have scarfed down more food in the past 48 hours than I myself can even imagine. What's up with that? I haven't even been HUNGRY. It's just that the food has been in the pantry, and I think I've been eating out of boredom.

So far, the following innocent snack foods have fallen prey: salted almonds, vanilla wafers, goldfish crackers, dark chocolate, frozen fruit bars, dried apricots, mozzarella cheese, and peanut butter and crackers. And, guys, this is in addition to the actual MEALS I am eating. (Asian soup, chicken salad, shrimp and corn, etc.)

Sometimes, I just get the munchies. (And I've never smoked pot, so Lord knows what kind of incredible hunger I'd feel if I ever did.) Over the past few months, during my successful weight-loss regime, I've appeased my cravings with a couple of well-chosen snacks per day, but that all went to hell in a handbasket over the last few days.

Here's to some lighter fare for the rest of the week . . . Ugh.

have you taken a pregnancy test?

Um, no and NO.

And if that's what's going on, I will be seriously freaked out.

I'm just saying, you get one little fella on solid food and those hormones start churning around again.

They don't know how much trouble it is for the rest of the body to make and raise a baby, they're just doing their thing.

It happens ... I think cravings are cyclical. I go through stages where I can eat everything in sight, and a week later, I couldn't force myself to eat a bite.

Don't fret it.
