Whatcha thinking about? If you’re anything like me, you’re thinking about food. I literally ate about five minutes ago, but that doesn’t stop images of delicious dinner selections from flashing through my brain. I blame it on my incessant need to plan and organize (but let’s be honest – I just like food).
Apparently, I’m not alone in the meal-obsessed department. According to a new study, women spend about 44 minutes a day thinking about food (almost 10 minutes more than men, on average). That’s TWO YEARS of your life! And yet, I still think that’s an underestimation. (Seriously – I think about food all. the. time.)
Now that I see the (scary and embarrassing) facts laid out in front of me, I can’t help but wonder what I could do with my life if I wasn’t always thinking about food. Maybe I could have graduated in three years at the top of my class and gotten an awesome job straight out of college. Maybe I could have a couple novels published by now. Maybe I could weigh 15lbs less than I do now. The possibilities are endless!
It’s all too much to think about, especially since dinner is coming up in a couple hours. Mmm, beef and broccoli or a grilled cheese sandwich? I’ll have to think about it…
