Have you ever had days that made your blood pressure spike before 9am? Yeah, that was me today. I had a lot to do today and hit the floor running, trying to be timely and organized. To do list: Get kids up, dressed, and fed. Drop off at church for babysitting fundraiser. Eat brunch with my friends. Pick kids up. Go to store to get stuff to make "Meals on Wheels" for two couples that just had babies in our church. Drop some relaxation CD's back to my client's house. Come home, make meals. Drive meals to respective houses. Get back in time for Ed to go to the Braves Game. Phew!

Got kids up (or rather, they got me up) and we made a healthy breakfast. Got them dressed (which for some reason takes FOREVER with two). Headed out the door to drop them off at our church's babysitting fundraiser. Got them buckled in and ready to go. Car won't start. Battery is dead. Mental note: don't let Fischer play in the car for fun anymore. It's hot, really hot. And humid. I'm sweating like I just ran 3 miles and I haven't gone anywhere. Luckily my friend Margo picked us up in her minivan without much fanfare. We dropped the kids off and ate brunch. Good times. Since my car was still sitting in my driveway, my good friend drove me to the store and then to my client's house so that I could mark that off my list. I got home, cooked, then drove food around. Got home, cooked dinner for my family. Ate. Ed left. The kids and I played checkers in my bedroom for an hour. I just got them to bed. And now I'm in a vegetative state in my bed. I feel like I've taken a painkiller. I'm so tired and can't move. I was supposed to run 3 miles for my marathon training today. Unfortunately there was no time. Unless I was going to get up at 6am- which was NOT going to happen since my children tag teamed me last night with wet diapers and paci retrievals.

Ed is going out of town tomorrow. So I'm going to have to just do my three miles with the kids in the jogger. The earlier I get out, the better. For some reason mornings are so hard to me to get motivated to run. Ya know those clips of people still in the middle of the screen and other people around them are moving in hyper speed and all blurry? I feel that way in the morning with my kids. It takes me a while to snap out of it. But, I'll manage it. I always do.

Did well on the eating front. I'm thinking less and less about food, which is good. I'm enoying tasty treats, but not going overboard.

Here's my tracker:

All Bran Cereal
Skim milk

The Flying Biscuit Breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 chicken sausage patties, 1 whole wheat biscuit and grits. I ate all but one patty and half my biscuit.

Starbucks- Doube tall, non fat, no whip, sugar free Cinnamon Dulce Latte
