Lately I've been feeling very out of shape. You know you can only use the "I just had a baby" excuse for so long. Eight months ago isn't that convincing anymore! With all that in mind, I know that my worst enemy right now and the biggest obstacle to me getting back to my pre-baby weight, would be my constant cravings for terrible foods. Truly, I feel so bad, because even as I'm typing this post, I'm eating junk! Spanish rice with Taco Bell creamy Ranchero Sauce on top, and that's just breakfast! 

This morning I stumbled upon this interesting chart on what your food cravings mean and what that craving is actually telling you your body actually needs. I guess I'll have to try it. My absolute favorite part of the chart though, is the alcohol and recreational drug craving. I'm pretty sure that if your craving recreational drugs that means your addicted to them. I never say things like, "boy, I'm really craving some crystal meth right now! Maybe I'll just have some turnip greens instead, because obviously my badly needs calcium!" Really? 

     if you crave this...     what you really                          Healthy foods that have it...
                                            need is this...

    ...just avoid those starches ;), heck I wonder what would happen if you just eat the cigarette? At least you're not inhaling.
