Hormone food

I am not sure if it is just me or not but right before a certain time of the month (aunt flow*) I really crave/must have something. It usually ends up being Cafe Rio that I need. The pork burrito (black beans, mild sauce, enchilada style with extra lettuce) usually does the trick but occasionally it is a pork salad that is urgently needed. If I don't end up going and getting my hormone fix, as it has come to be called, I am fine (read:or I am just grumpy,testy, mean and/or emotional) but I am more pleasant to be around if I do (J will vouch for that). Does anyone else have a hormone food (aside from chocolate - because we all need chocolate right!?) that they crave or is it just me?
*sometimes being a girl isn't so fun but there are a lot of reasons why I love it.

All I know is that I have to have FOOD or I get grumpy if I don't eat!!

I crave Cafe Rio almost daily and having my office just behind the restaurant is a really bad thing. I recently discovered the pork and the pork tamales are my current fav. Plus...vanilla Coke in the machine! LOVE it! I wish I could say that it was just a hormonal crave but no, it's an every week crave for me.

bacon double cheeseburgers and/or fried chicken and/or French fries and/or hot fudge sundaes and/or bags of potato chips AND Diet Coke

Isn't being a girl fun?

If I go the store and end up with a basket full of junk food I usually have to think about the calendar to figure out how it all got in there.

Darn it. Now I really want a cheeseburger! Thanks a LOT!

lately for me it has been ice cream(chocolate creamies), but that could have to do with little Brock!

You definitely aren't the only one! I like anything greasy and contains a ton of calories!

I'd have to agree with Caralee and the coke- at this point I'd take any caffeine actually. I usually don't drink it much at all, but I haven't had it since I was pregnant with Arvilla and it doesn't look like I'll be getting it in the near future either.

DORITOS- yes I know it is bad but I could eat a whole bag by MYSELF during that certain time. Sometimes I need a little "taste from tick-tock" as Parker and Jordan call my Cherry Coke with crush ice from the gas station, they are for my bad Mommy days.
