HH and I are doing a lip sync for a Variety show being held at our church Friday night. It was so much fun dancing around with him!
Anyway, I don't know if it had anything to do with yesterday's cookies, but today I overcame my cravings. Sort of.
Right after I put the kids down for a nap is my worst time. That's when I need--N.E.E.D.--chocolate and other unhealthy food. And the kids aren't around to inhibit me by helping me realize that if I don't want to feed it to them, I shouldn't feed it to myself.
But today, I was able to do two positive things. First, I waited. We had just finished lunch, after all. So, my preggers body could wait at least a little while before requiring calories. Then when snacking time came, I grabbed an orange. I ate it. And, the best part, I was satisfied.
Usually, (while I'm pregnant) when I try to substitute something else for whatever I'm craving, I end up just giving into the craving after I eat whatever I substituted. So, I'm actually worse off. But today, for whatever reason, it worked and I didn't eat any chocolate!
Besides the cookie that I had after lunch. But that was before my witching hour, so it doesn't count.
And when I realized all of this, it was a Joyful Moment.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments full of oranges (or your own healthy substitute that still leaves you feeling completely content and satisfied)!
