I was planning on going running this afternoon, but my left shin is a little sore. Not in a terribly horribly injured way, but sore enough that running on it doesn't seem like a good idea. I think I'll go to the gym and bike instead. I should be feeling virtuous and responsible for listening to my body and taking good care of it, but mostly I'm feeling grumpy about not getting to run.
I just told a colleague that I couldn't possibly do the thing he was asking me to do and still meet my other work commitments, so he's going to try to do it himself instead. I should be feeling virtuous and responsible for being realistic about my workload and setting clear boundaries, but mostly I'm feeling guilty about not doing something that under any other circumstances I would do.
However, my inner adult is now telling me that I should eat some lunch now because I won't be productive when I'm hungry and my inner child thinks that there is probably Tasty Soup, so at least I have achieved inner harmony on one point.
