Thoughts incessantly run through your head…
“If I eat eggs and toast for breakfast, then a turkey sandwich with lettuce and tomato for lunch… Uh oh - is that too many carbs? Does tomato count for a vegetable or fruit; I think fruit. Wait a sec - are tomatoes carbs? Am I going over my daily allowance of carbs? And hold up - how much fat is in the eggs? Too much? Is it good fat or bad fat… help me!”
“I’m going to workout tonight. I hate working out. Working out will make me feel good. But it’s so cold out. Just get to the gym and let the endorphins flow. I think I feel a tickle in my throat. Working out will give me more energy. But I feel tired, maybe I should nap instead. I’ll go tomorrow.”
“I am going to yoga right after work. Oh wait, I have a meeting at the end of the day - I will go to the later class. Shoot, we need some groceries. I’ll do a quick stop after my meeting - I’ll be able to make it if I hit all green lights. [Calendar alert goes off] Oops, the kids have hockey at 7:00pm. Oh no! What can I make for dinner?!? [frantic] There’s no time! Forget it, I’ll pick up dinner again. [sigh] I guess I’ll forget about yoga too.” [double sigh]
