How to run on fumes?

I just started a second job, bringing me to 70+ hours a week. This will last until the end of September, when the first job ends. I also commute an hour each way between the jobs. I know, it's nuts. I made a committment to the first (cheesy) job. The second job pays more and has a future. And hell, I need the money. You who have worked two full-time jobs simultaneously: How did you do it? What helped? What should I watch out for? Any suggestions for me?
