The Very End

The day was going good until the end. I just hate days that end wrong. How was your day?

Coming up with a Plan

I have been on You Tube for most of the day just trying to get tips to save more money.  I am already doing good with saving money, but I am sure there are more ways to save than what I am already doing.   I am going to find a way to get rid of cable.  This is an expense that could be cut.  I love cable and so does my family, but the price is high for just to see the same programs everyday.  I am looking into some of these new streaming sites now, and maybe that will help reduce some money.  Also going to start doing bulk grocery shopping, and invest in a Food Saver machine.  These will also help me to cut some of our budget.   Once I can get this figured out, I am going to do a deep dive into paying down our bills, so we can take a vacation.

Also while doing this today I was making dinner and it came out great.  I made slow cooker red bean with white rice, and some Cajun pork chops on the side.  These bean are a keeper for sure. IMG_0863 The recipe for the beans I found on Pinterest. The link is below.

What I Made for Dinner

imageI made some broccoli soup that was really good.  It was easy to make and light on my budget (always like that).  My husband does love a good  cheesy broccoli soup, and this one past his inspection.  I have provided the link below, so you can try this cheesy broccoli soup too.   I am thinking about experimenting with different cheeses next time.


I made it to Friday.  This was a long painful week for me, omg nothing but work.

I hope everyone had a good week and maybe good weekend plans as well.    I think I’m just going to get a drink with my husband tonight to start my weekend.

Back to the Gym

Yesterday was the first day back to working on out at the gym.  The past month I put off going to the gym because of so many things going on, and I know that I shouldn’t have done that, but well I did.  I am back to going and excited to get back into my work out routine.  Yesterday being the first day back since a month, it wasn’t that back.  I thought I would be sore and tired, but nope, I was feeling good.

For now, I’m just going to the gym on the weekends just until I get back into it again.  It is kind of hard going to the gym during the week with the long hours of work, but I am going to try to add one week day in and hopefully progress from there.  I’m looking forward to my work outs now, and I hope that I don’t fall off track again.
