emoticon It's nice to see someone struggling with the same issue I am struggling with! Working and trying to make healthy meals! I was actually just thinking about this today and I've come up with a plan of my own. I plan every meal and snack. Go grocery shopping. Anything I can make ahead of time (like this week I'm making lasagna) I make and put in the freezer or the fridge. With our lunches, I buy the bulk cans of fruit and divide that up into smaller containers. Same for yogurt. This week I'm making puppy chow for their snack. So I'm making that in bulk and dividing it into individual baggies. Then everything is grab and go.

Also, when I make lasagna this week, I think I'm going to make an extra to put in the freezer just so it's there.

This is all good in theory. I just hope I can pull it off! Good luck to you! emoticon


The question should be, is it worth trying to do, not can it be done.

Hi everyone I am new to the working moms group. I have about 55 pounds to go and I go back to work on Monday after being out of work for a little over a year. This is starting to really get to me because while I was home I was able to go to the gym and make all of my foods and snack accordingly. Now to have to do all of that and work my 40 hour a week job makes me feel like I am going to fail. Can anyone help with tips on how to be ready for back to work with kids going to school and me going to work? She is in 2nd grade and starts school at 8, I start work at 7:30 and my mom runs the kids in between. I still have a 3 year old at home. I know I will need to depend on my mom more for help since my husband works 2 jobs.

230 pounds: Get a pedicure

220 pounds: Get a new pair of pants

210 pounds: Get a new Hot Hula shirt

200 pounds: Buy a new series of books

190 pounds: Get a massage

180 pounds: Spend $250 on clothes
