Time Management

I'm the first to admit it - I want to do everything at the same time! Work full time, train for the Iron Man, raise two toddlers and remodel my house, while reading all the books on my "to read" list, and do all the crafty things I see online. You know the old saying "your eyes are too big for your stomach"?... well, my ideas are too big for reality!
This week, I haven't done as well as I would have liked to... I didn't dive into a pint of Ben and Jerry's, but neither did I eat very healthy or exercise. In my defense, I would like to point out that I am the advisor for a high school club putting on a formal dance. In fact, I am writing this while sitting in an elaborately decorated cafeteria waiting for a really wacky DJ to show up. I will be here until 1 am. I started gathering supplies and last minute set up stuff at 10.30am. And I am soooooo glad this is only once a year.

So far, I've eaten...

Breakfast - two packets of extra fiber oatmeal and a banana
Lunch - tunafish sandwhich (real mayo)
Tea - hershey bar
Supper - ??? Really hoping I will have time to run and get something in a couple of hours.

I weighed myself this morning and it shows a 7 pound weight loss, but in inches, I only lost on my calves this time around. Everything else was the same or larger ?!?!

Is anyone an early morning exerciser? Like super early... what do you do to motivate yourself to get up in the morning? It's the only free time I have to exercise, but I cannot find the motivation to get up a 5am!

I am NOT a morning anything... I hate mornings. And I totally understand with wanting to do everything... that's me too. I always have a million things I'm juggling. *sigh*
