PMS is a Bitch

But so far, I’ve won… kinda.

I snarled around the house this morning till I remembered my emergency stash of dark chocolate burnt almond bar in the car (it’s there so I don’t snarf it in the house, but have to actually think about going out to get it, thus giving myself to second think it).  Today, I ate it.

Then I’m in the grocery store and I cruise the bakery.  Well, the good news is that I was in SuperStore which has a shitty bakery.  Unlike Safeway, which has all sorts of delectable things in their bulk bins, like cookies, and muffins and cheesy things, this one had buns.  Just buns.  And I didn’t want a whole PACK of cookies, I mean c’mon, a binge needs to be contained, thank you.

Then, I cruise through the deli.  Oooo, I can buy a slice of cheese pizza to go.  YUM.  Okay, I’ll pay for my groceries and come back for it. What did I do?  I paid for my groceries, turned towards the deli, then pivoted on my heel and walked out the door.  Dinner is in 50 minutes for crissakes.  I don’t need goddamn pizza.

So then, driving home, I remember there is a cupcake place now on 207th.  Yay!  I actually changed lanes to turn down it, when I remembered again that dinner is in 45 minutes.  NO!  I’m NOT doing this!!  I don’t NEED a freakin cupcake!!!  I’m already at 1400 calories for the day and I don’t NEED any more.  Every day this week I’ve been up around 24-1600 calories and am not going to see a loss.  Don’t be retarded!!

So here I sit, having eaten dinner, hunger satisfied, but craving something/anything anyways.  I’m mentally going through my cupboards.  I could have popcorn.  I still might.  But I’m celebrating passing up the pizza and cupcake.

PMS is a bitch.



  1. Some people just want to eat…I want to eat and rip everyone’s head off. 😦 Ugh. Not good.

    Great job on navigating the landmines today! You made it through. 🙂

  4. Excellent job on staying strong. I have to admit, even as a medical doctor who knows better, I get those cravings sometimes and fight them off. I am impressed with your will power overall. Keep up the great work.

  5. Wow, you’re way stronger than I am! Once I’m in a store and see food I’m craving, I always buy it.I agree that PMS is a bitch, but unfortunately that’s not the only time of the month I lose control in!
