Gimme More

When I find something I like I go a little crazy. Whether it's a person, a place, a TV show or especially food. Obviously I have some impulse issues. Sometimes my obsessions can be helpful. Like when I met Captain Awesome and I wanted to be around him all the time and eventually tricked him into marrying me. Or like when I got into going to the gym. I threw myself into it and went 5 to 6 times a week. Sometimes it doesn't affect things like when I started watching Girl's Next Door and TiVo'd every episode and was online "researching" the show.

And then there's food. I like a lot of variety in my diet but I easily get into ruts. Like the time I bought several pounds of cherries and ate them in one afternoon, by myself. Needless to say I was a tad uncomfortable that evening and did a tiny bit of whining and complaining (read: a, more than that). Captain Awesome has encouraged me to not buy quite so many cherries at one time. After my first delectable bite of Tandorri chicken I was hooked. I begged Captain to eat Indian many times per week and may have pouted a little when he forced me to eat something else.

So this weekend watermelon was 39 cents per pound at the store. (Can you see where this is going?) I got a watermelon "filet" (seriously, it's called a filet! I think because it's a big piece of watermelon with the rind cut off. The name alone sold me). I got home, cut it up and put it in a large tupperware container so I could eat it throughout the week. But I had some time before I was supposed to meet some friends so I ate a little bit. And when I got home I had a little more. And I had it for breakfast on Sunday. And as my mid-morning snack, and for lunch. And.....
Do I need to go on? I had eaten it all in two days. But I still want more. Excuse me, I have to go somewhere.

Oooh, that sounds delish!

And I'll admit, I am very much like you in the obsession department when I take a liking to something. Us and moderation, we just don't mesh well, do we? ;)

Most of your obsessions sound pretty healthy. (ESPECIALLY the Girls Next Door obsession!)

But now I am SO hungry for cherries.

Hee, I do that too. My latest adventure was with icing. As in, there's always some left over after you make cake or cupcakes or whatever. So I allowed myself one spoonful... which of course turned in to the rest of the can. sigh.

hahaha, I read your post immediately after a discussion with my mom that my current peanut butter and apples for lunch addiction really wasn't all that weird. Glad to know there are other people who get into food obsessions too!
