The struggle is real folks and as much as I try to keep healthy foods here I have days (since being prego, when not prego I could go a lot longer without sweets!) that I just can’t help it! There are days where yes I chug some water and feel better or eat an apple with some PB and I don’t think twice about it. Then there are days like the day I made the purchase below that I just couldn’t help myself! There was no way around it! Or there are days when my husband (Mr. I don’t eat sweets!!) wants ice cream and he brings home 2 pints of Ben & Jerry’s and yes I resist at first. Then a couple of days later I am at a moment of weakness when nothing is helping and there is goes more ice cream consumed!! I will say that this time around the cravings are a lot fewer and far between, I am managing them better, and well it helps there isn’t a Dairy Queen less than a mile down the road!!
Here are some of the snacks that have really helped me to manage this craving!!
Greek yogurt, sliced banana, with PB – mix the yogurt and PB, slice the banana and put the mixture over it and put in the freezer for a little bit. ENJOY!!
Greek yogurt with PB2 – mix together and use as a fruit dip!
Good old fashion glass of water! With lemon or lime of course!
Prego or not one serving at a sitting is not going to kill your weight loss or your eating but continuing to eat like that will or eating half of a container in a sitting will! Hang it there it isn’t the end of the world and it happens! It is a fact of life it happens and depriving yourself of something that you enjoy will only make matters worse in the long run!
