I think most of us can relate. Our nights are like that very often. Supper is squeezed in between school/work and sports. You start to cherish those activity-free evenings when you can relax.
When we don't have time for a real meal, we buy (Subway or similar) or make a quick sandwich, have yogurt or a TLC Kashi bar... the occasional frozen pizza :(
One thing that was working for me was to eat a decent-sized healthy snack at work around 3:00 or 4:00. That would stave off hunger through the after school/work activities, and then I'd have something small when I got back home at 7:00 or 8:00. You find something that works for you so you don't get starving and then eat whatever is convenient.

That's not messed up... it's reality. As the others have said, it's all about planning for the next time. And, maybe, if next time sneaks up on you again it's about eating the McD's cheeseburger instead of the quarter pounder or one serving of whatever you made at home instead of two. We all do it...
Good luck next time and I hope that the games went well!
Don't worry about being perfect. Just stay with it and don't quit.

I'm right there with you! If I could put life on hold and be able to prepare all my food etc for every situation, I'd do so much better!!

I have been doing really good all week about keeping my calories down and not eating out. Last night my son had a double header game and it started at 6 and didn't finish until 8:45. Since I'm coaching I didn't have time to eat. I should have went home and ate a salad or something low in calories but nope. These are reasons I'm overweight dang it. I know you can't change it but I'm still mad at myself.
