I do my big grocery shop on Sunday then put everything pre-measured into ziplock baggies with the calories written on the front so we can mix and match to get our calories for the day. It takes an hour or so, but then everything is grab and go of a morning!
I bought a cheapy scale at the grocery store and always use the online "how many calories does ____ have?" to get exact measurements. And I swear by my measuring cups!

I am lucky enough to live close enough to work that I can go home for lunch every day. Since I sit at a computer most of my day at work, I use my lunch hour to be active. I usually eat something very simple to make and then use the rest of my hour to pick up the house, load/unload the dishwasher, make the bed, etc and sometimes even get some strength training done. Getting this done during lunch also means more time for fun things after work!
