Monday Moaning-I Want…..

I want….. to eat.

This is very different from saying “I am hungry”. The truth is that I am not hungry. This totally sucks. I want…something. I don’t know what.

Usually, I have a craving. Milk, yogurt, ice cream or cheese cravings signal a need for more dairy in my diet. If I want fruit salad or a regular salad, it usually signals to me that I haven’t been eating enough vegetables. The same with bread or cereal.(Lack of fiber) My cravings are usually very easy to read. And they normally are accurate about what my diet is lacking.

Except today. I want……I don’t know.

I went out for breakfast today. I had a huge Belgian waffle with fresh, warm blueberries. I had a small bowl of cottage cheese. I had a well-rounded meal. However, 2 short hours later, I wanted ‘something’.

You wanna know what else I noticed? I am bored. This is not good. ‘Boredom eating’ is treacherous to me. I am bored frequently in the winter. *Sigh* Not good.

I’ve been food shopping. I have a variety of chips, crisps and crackers. I have a box of chocolates. I have apples, oranges and grapefruit in the house. I have sherbet in the freezer.

I want………none of the above.

It might be a texture thing. I need to chew. Like a hoagie or a steak. Like a chocolate cake. Like strawberry pie. Like a bag full of Skittles. Like pepperoni and cheese. Like¬† a bowl of buttery popcorn….

I want…….this craving to pass!

********************************

Speaking of I want…

I want to wish Adam a very happy birthday with many more to follow.

May you have one wish come true for every hair on your entire body. That’s alot of wishes!!¬† :*

    Usually when I get this kind of craving it means I want to go someplace, do something active. Wait, that’s not necessarily true, ’cause sometimes it’s I want to go to Barnes & Nobles, where I sit on my ass in a puffy chair and read. I guess it’s I want “me” time.

    Giggle Pixies last blog post..Beavers and Ducks, Chickens and Minivans, Oh My!

    Robin-That’s what makes this such a treacherous craving. I will go from package to package just stuffing my face until my stomach hurts. And then the guilt will come as I realize how much I need to work out to burn it off! :(

    GigglePixie-Sometimes it’s the “me time” that leaves me bored. I want to “do” and if I can’t find something to do, then I’ll eat. :((

    Sometimes I’m just plain thirsty. And no amount of water, gatorade, soda, beer or liquor does me any good. Then I eat something salty or sweet that jolts my palatte, and then finally something quenches the thirst.

    So maybe you’re the opposite, and you need something new to drink.
