Rough day at the office-help please!

I need your help.
It’s been a really frustrating day.  All 3 kids at home. I feel like I’ve given it 110% today but it seemed completely THANKLESS.  I know people without kids are saying “but you’re a stay-at-home-mom, how bad could it be?"  But as many of you know if can be REALLY BAD.  I won’t go into too many details but the day included broken glass, about 10 really stinky diapers, a fist fight (with people staring) about 30 yelling matches, tap shoes on my hardwood floors, did I mention screaming and yelling?= one wicked headache.
How do you recover from the stress of your day?  I try to workout but I did that first thing this morning and things have gone downhill since.  I am trying not to overeat or over-drink and I think today I did a pretty good job, considering. Writing definitely helps!
 
Tonight I believe the best remedy is going to sleep when the kids do…8:30!  Sometimes you just have to look at the day, learn from it, write it off and get psyched up for the next day.  I understand that you actually can lose weight if you get enough sleep.
I did my best…here’s how my day looked:

Workout:  I had my trainer Mackey today.  She kicked my butt with a serious core workout filled with planks, side planks, sit-ups and all kinds of moves that made me sweat my butt off.  I also played soccer with the kids and played "ballet class" with my daughter.

Breakfast-1 packet instant oatmeal, 2 tbls walnuts, 1 banana, coffee
Snack- 1/2 strawberry smoothie, balance bar
Lunch- 1/2 turkey sandwich on wheat bread, small salad with 4oz. salmon
Snack-coffee, pretzels, 1/2 a banana
Dinner- Chick'n strips, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, bbq sauce on a spelt bun, cole slaw, 1 mojito (it's the only mixer I had, I'm trying people!!!), 1 glass of wine.

I just have to try to look at the successes of the day. Now off to bed. Ready to face another day and work toward those GOALS!

Love to hear any advice of how to handle it all in a HEALTHY manner!

I know exactly what you mean. On bad days I head straight for that McDonalds. So bad, but sometimes I need comfort food and some time away from the kiddos. I applaud you for hanging tough and eating right.

heh, I am so with you that yesterday was one of those days!! As a fellow 3-kids-in-3-years mommy, being a stay-at-home mom is equal to at least 2 full-time jobs. the kids were fighting over everything, and I made it harder for myself by sticking to my guns that I wasn't turning the TV on until R did 20 minutes of reading (is that so much to ask?) and H put all the panties and socks back in her drawer that she threw all over the floor. 3 hrs later, still no tv, and plenty more messes and tantrums in retaliation *sigh*. I was also able to avoid drinking and overeating to reward myself for not strangling them, but prob only because I had a girl's night out to vent into instead and recharge my batteries some! :)

kelly, were you a fan of "king of queens"? on tv from 1998 til 2007. starring kevin james & leah remini. you should visit their early shows & compare how leah looked then & how she changed herself! Of course kevin james remained the same (maybe even got bigger) and just starred in "mall cop"! she ended up looking awesome! which probably contributed to the shows demise. people were probably wondering what she saw in the husband TUB! it's a marathon, kelly! not a sprint

Agreed that girls nights and alone time are VERY important! It helps us stay sane and focused and able to come back to our "jobs" with a smile. Thanks for the input!

I never notice Leah Remini's weight loss. I never thought of her as heavy! But I did always wonder why she was with the Mall Cop!
