Cravings or Gluttony?

I can't believe I'm even blogging about this, because I feel so ashamed, but here goes...

So, I've been working really hard on a power point for my boss (aka dad) for a board report he is giving today (as I type in fact).  The board meeting was set to begin at noon, with the kitchen delivering food shortly before.  Noon rolled around and still no lunch.  I had just finished putting the final touches on the power point and ran down to the kitchen to find out where the lunch was. They forgot!  Fortunately, we have a Little Caesar's Pizza right down the road, offering $5 hot and ready large pizzas.  I jumped in my car (literally) and drove down there to grab a few pizzas before the meeting got underway.  During my short jot there, I realized that Matt and I applied for new life insurance and are having our blood drawn at 5pm today, which means I have to fast after 1pm.  That means I had 20 minutes to figure out what's for lunch and eat it!  I decided to grab a bag of Crazy Bread and a Diet Pepsi as a last resort.  With time limited, this seemed like the best and most efficient option.  Here's the shameful part...by the time I got the food set-up for the board, I was starving.  You know that feeling where you go from "yeah, I could eat" to "yeah, I need to eat everything in sight now!"  I retreated to my office, locked the door and dug into the Crazy Bread.  Before I knew it, I had eaten the entire package!  (Yes, it tasted heavenly, but that's besides the point.)  Now I'm wondering - could this have been a craving?  Or maybe pure, sinful gluttony?  Or maybe cravings are gluttony and we just call them cravings because it makes it sound better?  Either way, I feel ashamed of eating the whole bag - which is normally meant for 4 people.  The saddest part, I don't even feel full!

You crack me up!! Your little one needs to gain weight so maybe that's why you can eat that much. That's pretty normal for me....I have to stop myself on a nonpregnant day!!!

When I was pregnant with my first, we would go out to eat pretty much every Fri night :me, Pam, Jenny, sometimes Chris... anyway, I would finish what everyone else left on their plates. That would include dessert sometimes. There are just some days you can't get full! I remember the feeling! Don't be so hard on yourself, you're PREGNANT!

The good news is that pregnancy weight is different from normal weight. The pounds will just melt off for months afterward. I'm still losing from Evie. Plus, the babies do put on most of the weight that you are gaining toward the end.
