My ADD ADHD locks me into unpleasant things
I needed to do my morning routine, and then exercise and shower, and then I had a one PM appointment. I was feeling rushed – hate that feeling. Then I realized there was no reason I couldn’t do the exercise and shower after the appointment. No more rushed. That worked well. We tend to get locked into perceptions and fail to recognize alternatives.
Feeling rushed, overloaded, overwhelmed, can be a red flag. It says to pause and consider other options.
A Positive Note
After gaining all that weight over the holidays, I got back on my plan. It works! I’m almost back to where I was. But I still need a strategy for when we’re on the road, or for just when we’re eating out. Your suggestions are welcome.
