    Default Guilty Pleasures??

    So ladies, let's be honest!! How many of us have guilty pleasures that we are indulging under the excuse of nursing? Anyone cleaned out a box of cookies? Having dessert after dinner every evening (I am )? Lay in bed all day just nursing and dozing (me too!)?

    Own up!! Who does it?!!

    All you others - better start doing it! Be nice to yourself!

    Oh yes, I have a few...

    For one thing, I always have a snack right after each feeding. Usually, it's relatively healthy, like fruit, cheese, or yogurt...but sometimes it's cookies...

    Also, because I'm plopped in front of the tube so much while nursing, I find that I'm watching a lot more "junk"-TV, like VH-1/E! celebrity stuff, and make-over shows...I can literally feel my brain cells dying off, one by one...

    Oh, and staying in my PJ's all day!! because the tops are so easy to nurse in...

    Ah, the joys of reading a novel...!

    Who am I kidding? Many, many novels...!

    (I'm already making next summer's reading list for the rest of the family.)

    Lounging around in pj's all day is my favorite thing!

    Also, not making dinner (though that's starting to fade a little).

    Watching "The price is right". I am so addicted now.

    Also when my inlaws are driving me crazy telling me what to do it's a great escape with my lo.

    I also eat lots of cookies!

    It's what I don't do...!!! I HATE vegetables! And I've gotten out of eating everything I don't like under the excuse of giving Aaron gas. Especially broccoli!! Nevermind that he's 7mo old and his systems are developing pretty well by now. I do like salads and eat them often, but only with the veggies I can tolerate. The rest I use the "nursing card" for them.

    Yep, I'm definitely indulging (probably overindulging) the sweet tooth that I suddenly and inexplicably (for lifelong salty/savoury flavour favouring me) acquired during pregnancy...and apparently haven't lost post partum! Mmmm, ice cream.....

    Frankly I just tend to feel ravenous all the time! And so far, although I still have perhaps ~5 lbs to lose to get back to pre-preggie weight, indulging the hunger hasn't yet bitten me on the butt.

    Grins,

    Jen
