I have no control

When it comes to food anymore.  None.  Nada.  Zip.

I'm guessing Kate is going through another growth spurt and my body is just telling me I need to eat more but man, I am a bottomless pit.  Think 14 year old boy raiding the fridge.  Except make that a 33 weeks pregnant women with a swollen ankle. 

Some things are healthy.  I have a new love for white nectarines - they are delish! 

I also threw together an amazing cucumber and tomato salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, a touch of Italian dressing, lemon juice, fresh ground pepper, and a pinch of salt all mixed together - it is best after chilling in the fridge). 

My MIL brought some home grown tomatoes and cucumbers to Alex this past weekend (he went to a family wedding) and he brought them back to me.  It is so refreshing during this heat - I have eaten almost all of it but, keep telling myself that it is OK to eat it like I have never seen food before enjoy it because it is all fresh veggies and I needed to eat them before they go bad anyways!

However, the majority of the things I am eating aren't so healthy. 

Case in point:

That would be my breakfast Saturday morning.  No judgement please.  We went out to breakfast before Alex left town and I couldn't decide on just one thing that sounded good.  So I ordered everything that sounded good - biscuits and gravy, sausage, eggs, hash browns, and 2 pancakes.  I ate almost all of it.

Then, I had frozen yogurt with gummy bears for a snack that day.  I also had tons of other things.

Last night I ate almost half a pan of brownies.  Today I had Chick-fil-a for lunch.  And Alex is currently grilling me hamburgers and cooking up some bacon - that's right bacon cheeseburgers for dinner!

The best part about it all?  I don't care that I am acting like your typical eat everything in sight pregnant woman.  I have 5 more weeks to enjoy this state of being and apparently I am taking it to the extreme!

I'm just glad this started now and not 8 months ago - Sea World would be inviting me to be in a Shamu show had I been this way from the beginning.  And I wouldn't be a trainer - I would be the star if you catch my drift!

That salad looks so good! At least you're balancing all the splurges with healthy stuff. :)

LOL! Eat up. Any weight gain you can attribute to water retention at this point anyway ;-)
