Posted on the 20 June 2012 by Mattie @comfyconfident

This week for WIAW I thought I would do a day in the life of ME at my new job!

7:25am I have to be leaving my house to get to work on time. I drink a full travel size mug of coffee on the drive

8:30: I am settled into my desk and checking emails on my computer

9:30 I start to get bored and think of food!

10:15 I reach for trail mix which is my biggest weakness EVERRRR. My boss has a giant jar of it. I can’t resist it, its so salty and delicious!

I also snack on some gum and sucky candies throughout the whole day. The sugar keeps me going, but defintely isn’t helping the number on the scale decrease!

12:30: Lunch… Today it was salad with a chicken breast seasoned with salt and pepper. I also had an apple on the side.

3:30pm I had a Chia Latte out of the Kureg. I needed the sugar and caffeine to get me through the rest of the day.

For some reason today I was really anxious and bored at the same time so I just wanted to eat and graze.  I tried to drink water and focus on other things. It worked sometimes, but the second I stopped doing something, my mind went back to food.

5:45pm Change out of my work clothes and put on my running clothes – at work so I don’t have an excuse to not workout. I am always exhausted after work and if I go home I never have the motivation or desire to exercise. So I change at work so I am all ready to run.

6:00pm Leave work and drive to the local bike/running trail. Today I ran 4 miles in about 30 minutes. It is so nice to be off of the main roads and surrounded by trees when running!

7:30pm Arrive home and cook dinner

8:00pm Dinner time! Tonight I had salad with mustard and balsamic vinaigrette. I also roasted carrots, broccoli and asparagus for about 20 minutes in 400 degrees. I coated them with about 3/4 tbs of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

8:30pm Dessert – This was so good! I want to eat it for every meal. Stonyfield Oikos Greek Yogurt (that I got at the RibFest 5 Mile Race) with 1 tbs of natural Teddie Peanut Butter and a handful of frozen blueberries. I really enjoyed this yogurt; it was just as good, if not better than Chobani. I am going to have to do a taste test, side by side.
