carrying in


Senior Member
"This can be looking at the plate of brownies you baked for dessert and, rather than having just a little taste of them at three o'clock, conjuring up a mental image of dinnertime. See yourself carrying in the brownies. Imagine feeling guilty that you are about to have your second. Envision your waistline or your cholesterol level. Now imagine enjoying the brownie with your family or friends because you know you have not overindulged." Richard J. Davidson (The Emotional Life of Your Brain").

Maybe this is as easy as it seems but I wanted to make sure. For me 'carry in' means to take something (e.g. a plate with brownies) and carry it in (in the room). But this somehow is not so clear in the context
