To the gym, or not to the gym?

So today has been busy as I got our whole garden prepared and planted. I have a ton of work I should/could be doing, but this is the year I really want to plant a good garden and stay on top of it. DH (dear husband) is off working, kids have needed constant tending. So the question is, do I go to the gym tonight or take today off in preparation for tennis tomorrow at 11:00 followed by my meeting with the trainer at 7 pm. I don't want to overdo or burn out, but nor do I want to make excuses. The hardest part of changing my lifestyle is figuring out how to make better decisions about my time.

Food today: Bfast - 1 cup lite vanilla yogurt with a few raspberries and a little granola; Lunch at Oma's, kept portions small; 10-12 berries for a snack; getting ready for burgers on the grill for dinner. That's it. Keeping busy is key to not getting hungry.
UPDATE: I did go to the gym and did 45 min on the treadmill, followed by half an apple, but no other evening snacking. Yeah!!!
