So much to do, not enough motivation to do it

Have you ever stepped back and looked at your life and what needs to be done and have an overwhelming sense of WTH!?!
That is where I am lol!
I am trying to get this weight off and was doing great on LiveFit but I lost motivation a few weeks ago when trying to add mileage for the Marine Corps marathon. My knee issue didn't help.
A major issue with my weight loss is getting my eating under control. I have wanted junk and I need to get past that!
I am off of work next week and was looking forward to spending time with my boys but I also need to go through my house and deep clean. Mike's allergies have been terrible lately and it's only when he gets home. I also need to go through the boys rooms to de-clutter and weed out clothes that don't fit so I know what to shop for this coming school year. With the deep clean, I need to touch up paint around the house since the boys are...well, boys, and destroy everything. lol
I also need to reorganize my garage.
I have so much to do that I don't know where to start! I can't figure out when to get my training runs in with my workouts. I feel so confused.
I am trying to get some done each night so that I don't spend my whole week off cleaning and painting. The two older boys decided to cut up my curtains in the kitchen yesterday so their punishment is to help me clean all week. I made a list of chores for them to do, like clean their rooms spotless, scrub their bathroom, wipe the cabinets in the kitchen and pick up their messes in the garage. I can't wait for school to go back! LOL!!!!
On another note, I ran the make it by midnight half marathon this past weekend. My hubby didn't want to go but changed his mind so I could go! The trip with my family was fun! We took the back roads up to GA and it was so pretty! Cool old houses, bridges and farm land. It made the trip up easier and added conversation! The time there was short. We got to Macon and visited every gun shop my DH could find before checking into the hotel and heading to the race site. I was so excited to see my friends (even if it ended up being a quick hug).
I used this as a training run so I didn't really care how slow it was. It was super hot and hilly. I ended up running with Wendy for both loops and we made a stop at the half way mark to change shoes and chat with Jeanine and CC for a bit.
I finished the race around 9:30ish and my hubby was bored to tears waiting for me and wanted to go. I was so bummed I missed my friends.
We had dinner (again) and went back to the room to watch TV and "try" to sleep. I think I am the only one who didn't sleep. We were up and on the road around 9am. We drove around and visited the Warner Robins Air Museum before making the journey back home. We got back around 10pm and I was exhausted!!
Monday made for a very sucky work day and NO workouts! lOL!
I missed my workout this morning but will try for a run this afternoon...and maybe the elliptical. I really need to find my motivation again!!
