I would like for you to plan my day tomorrow. I need direction on how to be a bit (a lot) more healthy. I've noticed that I can be successful in goalkeeping by accomplishing things in manageable chunks.

My main problem is that I overeat. Yes, I overeat. And I'm tired of it. My main reasons for eating 1. It tastes good. 2. I'm bored.
I need help. I need motivation. I need a plan for tomorrow. Let's jumpstart me for the week!
Here's a rundown of my schedule tomorrow. What are food suggestions and things to do during the times I don't have to be doing something (and this is hard, if I don't have to do something I am very good at not doing it). Ok:
6:30-7:30 am - get the kids breakfast and out the door for school
7:30-9:15 am - free time (no kids)
9:15-10:30 - babysit
10:30-10:45 - free time
10:45-11:00 - pick up my youngest at school
11:00-2:30 - free time - but I have my youngest with me. finding alternative care for him is not an option
2:30-3:10 - kids home from school, snacks for them
3:10-4:20 - carpool for various after-school activities (I'm in the car this entire time)
4:20-5:30 - dinner prep
5:30-6:00 - dinner and clean-up
6:00-10:30 - free time. Hubby is home by now and can watch the kids.
Give me ideas that will keep me busy during my free time. Give me some ideas on what to eat, what I should do for exercise. How can I make the most of my free time?
Something to consider: I eat constantly when I'm home. And even if we don't have cookies and cake in the house it ain't no thang for me to whip up some delicious carb-laden masterpiece to consume. So, it would probably be wise to not be home since that's when I gorge myself. However, this is not always practical, both physically (I'm in AZ and it's still stinkin' hot out) and financially (I don't have much money to be doing activities that cost money nor do I have the money to be spending on gas). So, any ideas on how to keep me out of the food?
For this question, I'm only looking for suggestions for tomorrow. I just want to get through tomorrow and for once not feel like a glutton at the end of the day.
