    Just finished a paper and come here

    So I just finished a research paper. It is 11:30 pm my time and I am tired, but wired from the caffeine to stay awake to finish the paper.

    I am not used to being up this late and am feeling peckish. No that is not true, I am craving Miss Vickies Sweet Chili chips.

    I click on recent topics hoping to see some projects people have completed for Christmas giving. What do I see? Recipes and more recipes for all sort of yummy food.

    Now I am craving all sorts of treats. Why is it that late at night I do not crave an apple, carrot sticks or cheese and crackers?

    Oh well, at least I got my project done. If I a still craving treats in the morning I can go shopping.

    Late night munchies are the hardest to resist. Congrats on finishing your paper. Hopefully you don't have too many more assignments to do and you can enjoy a break from your studies.

    Hope you have some carrots to munch on in the morning. Too many sweets at this time of year.

    Congrats on finishing your paper! Personally, I love Miss Vickies Dill chips! Lucky, or maybe not, I don't have access to them anymore!

    I don't resist! I eat what I want when I want it. I seldom have cravings for any one food and since I started eating and not stressing over what I eat, I have lost weight. I may have brownies for dinner and chili for breakfast. My body never gets the same foods at a set schedule. Some days all I want is a big veggie salad and some days all I want is fried chicken.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Its so true that when we get the munchies, we crave sweets or food that is not high on the food pyramid. I love an ice cream cone each night, that seems to help me with the munchies.

    Best wishes on getting your degree one day! I went back after 20 years and got my Master's--took a while to "retool" my mind to becoming a student again.

    When I get a craving in the middle of the night, I just get a spoon of peanut butter or make a pbj sandwich. A matter of protein and sweet and salty.
