A day in my life.

Yesterday was quite a day!  Here's a bit of what it looked like.  It seems that most days in my life look like this and are this crazy. 

6:30 am:  up and tidy a bit
7:45 am:  take girls to pre-school, go to work
8 am - 3 pm:  work in office
3:30 pm:  pick girls up from pre-school, take directly to ballet.
5:00 pm:  pick girls up from ballet, go directly to carmiel (30 min drive away) to see professional ballet put on by the Israeli Ballet Society- Cinderella. 
6 pm - 8 pm:  at theater with girls
8 pm - 9 pm:  realize we need to eat dinner- stop at an italian restaurant
10 pm - 11 pm:  home, give girls their baths, and put to bed
11 pm:  finally some peace at home, realize I have a sink full of dishes that need to be done, no plan for meals tomorrow, girls lunches left to pack, loads and loads of laundry that need to be done, folded, and put away.  But what I do instead, collapse into bed and go to sleep.

The Good: 
Eating was fairly healthy; did not snack randomly on junk.  Stuck to my basic meal plan:

Breakfast:  coffee with skim milk, energy bar
Snack:  labane (5%)- type of middle eastern goat's cheese, with pretzels for dipping, about 20 peanuts
Lunch:  Mana'esh with labane
Dinner:  1 slice of pizza, large plate of fatoosh salad

The Bad: 
Again, no exercise today.  Also, ate out again!  No variety- I seemed to have pizza for lunch and for dinner.

What needs to be done:
1.  Better meal planning
2.  Prepare dinner from night before
3.  Schedule time for exercise
4.  More fruits and vegetables into meals; more protein into meals- less carbs.

When do you prepare meals when your so busy?
