Save Me from the Junk Food and Other Crazy Hormonal Ramblings

I’m out of control, that’s it–I need an intervention.

Someone needs to come and save me. I can’t stop eating junk!

Up until now I have been going really well with paleo eating, avoiding all the bad things, cooking well, eating well. I have the occasional nibble at something naughty.

But this week I didn’t just fall off the wagon, I hurtled myself headlong into a chocolate, cake, cookie munching frenzy. I even baked with wheat flour and sugar, not the alternatives. I can’t stop and I’m hungry ALL the time. I could have easily sat down yesterday and eaten the whole carrot and walnut cake on my own and washed it down with milk. Thankfully my self control  whimpered a little and I only had 3 slices before I hid it in a tupperware container in the back of the fridge………..damn, I remembered……….

munch, crunch, chew……excuse me while I brush the crumbs off my face……ahem

Right where was I? Oh yeah, I have shocking cravings and I can only put it down to monthly hormonal changes……don’t go, it’s ok I promise not to go into any menstrual cycle details. That would just be weird.
So why am I feeling this? Is it normal? Am I having a ‘6 months on paleo’ breakout? I don’t think so….I really think it’s cyclic.

I think my body is just craving some bad stuff. I’m not stressed, all is well.

I can’t be the only one this happens to. Do we need different substances at different times of the month? I suppose it could make sense. I’ve never really tracked it before but I really notice it now that I’m eating clean.

I try to listen to my body, it seems to know what it needs but this week it’s telling me to be bad 🙂 and I don’t even care. Tomorrow it will probably tell me enough, eat properly and I will.

But today……pass the chocolate.
