Comfort food cravings

The past couple of days I've been craving comfort foods.  For example the other night I wanted a complete turkey dinner ... you know with mashed potatoes, gravy, and cranberry sauce.  Maybe with pumpkin pie for dessert?  I was very close to driving to Boston Market but somehow restrained myself.

This morning I was killing time before a doctor's appointment and stopped into an IHOP.  I cannot remember the last time I ate at the pancake house but figured a small stack of buttermilk pancakes would do well for the soul.  

I clearly did NOT hate my meal ... 2 buttermilk pancakes, hashbrowns, 2 scrambled eggs, and 2 slices of bacon, washed down with 1/2 decaf 1/2 regular coffee.  Oh and I finished it all in 10 minutes.  

Doctor's appointment went well (more details to  come on next wednesday's pregnancy post).

Once I arrived home I craved a walk.  I hadn't done any physical activity since tuesday's fall and finally felt well enough to move around.  Since I'm incapable of merely walking around my neighborhood, I alternated walking for 2 minutes and jogging for 1 minute.  20 minutes later my head was clear and I felt much better.  Although it was only 1.65 miles, I know the mileage will slowly increase as I start to feel better and my scrapes and scratches heal.  

Anyone else having silly cravings (pregnant or not)?
