Long working hours

Thursday, November 11, 2010

It has been and will continue to be long work weeks. Unfortunately dh place of work has slowed down and they are looking at 3-4 month layoffs or until business picks up. But for right now his hours have been cut & I have been doing alot of overtime to make up the difference.
But while I have not been posting like I was before, I am learning to cook differently. Now I cook about 5 main entrees/casseroles & freeze them. No more fast foods/take outs and that is one way I can slash calories and make sure we have a home cooked meal each night. DH & dg are learning to cook healthy side dishes and how to do healthy menus. So the weight is holding steady, lost a lb or two but still not where I would like to be.
