Being a on line business woman, a mom and raising a family, doesn’t leave a lot of time for other things. Cooking nutritious meals that the kids will actually eat is a very difficult task. Even more difficult is coming up with the time to make the menus, buy the food and then prepare it. Whew! We won’t even talk about the laundry, the cleaning and that’s before you can even get dressed in the morning.

Weekly Cooking (I cook it all on the weekend) has been a life saver for me. I set aside one day a week to plan a week’s worth of meals for my family. Then I make a grocery list and hit the store. The next step is to set aside time to do all of the cooking. Once you have all those meals in the freezer it is so simple just to heat it up, add a salad or a side, some rolls and you have a wonderful meal in less than 30 minutes. It is worth it. The time and stress that is saves the rest of the week is amazing. The internet has many sites with information about once a week cooking plus there are lots of books out there. Now I can go relax and know that dinner is taken care of so I can enjoy my family time, before they “fly the coop”.

How do you mange to “do it all”?

With the fall approaching, I have chosen to take a healthy outlook on life.  I am going to get back into a regular routine with my yoga, start eating healthier, and work to reduce clutter and stress in my life.  With any goal in life it is so much easier doing this with friends.  How do you make yourself have a heathier outlook on life?
