First and foremost, let’s talk Timehop.
Timehop is sometimes really fun. Sometimes it’s a really rude reminder of the fact that you used to get really drunk and eat two mexi hot dogs from Cookout at 3 a.m. on a regular basis. Yesterday was one of those days.
So, occasionally someone comments on my current weight, often, someone who may have known me at Elon. And I’m not ever going to pretend I was morbidly obese, but I definitely had a few more lbs on me, which you can clearly see in my cheeks and in my boobs in the above picture. Thanks a WHOLE heck of a lot Timehop, for serving as a brutal reminder of the fact that beer is not a food group.
I want a turkey sandwich.
I woke up on Monday feeling two things.
For one, I felt really rough because I drank too many mojitos with my friends on Sunday. But it’s not exactly my fault because…I just don’t feel like admitting that it’s my fault.
And for the second part, I really really was craving a turkey sandwich. Which is all well and good, except I’m a vegetarian, and it’s probably been over 10 years since I’ve eaten a turkey sandwich. But for some reason, a cold turkey sandwich with tomato, lettuce, and avocado is calling my name. I’ve given myself a few days to see if the craving would go away, but it’s not, so I’m really thinking about getting one.
Now, a few folks have been really quick to point out that I might be pregnant. Which would explain things, but I’m 99% sure I’m not.
So the other working theory is that my body is craving protein or sodium, which is also feasible, since it’s hot as balls out and I haven’t eaten meat in so long. But I also was under the impression that I was getting enough through beans and nut butters and whatnot.
So my question today, as I plan to eat lunch after a long run is:
Where’s the best place to get a turkey sandwich?

Haha, those cravings, eh? I know how it feels!
So weird! Trying to decide if my body is saying it really would like some lean, sodium-enriched protein, or if I’m just being fat…
Haha, if I listened to everything my body screamed at me, I’d be pretty out of control. I think it’s all about differentiating between what we think we want, and what’s actually going to satisfy us, which often isn’t the guilt-inducing treat we’re craving. But it’s definitely a battle!
It’s weird. I’m pretty in control as it pertains to food, so it’s bizarre when I crave stuff – sort of unexpecxted for me!
That is strange. Does it happen often?
Not really. I keep a reallyhealthy diet, but I try not to deprive myself to the point that I’m getting crazy about certain foods.
