This challenge I'll move on.

Quite literally: we're going to move in with my MIL

Not forever, just until we'll get the key to our new house at the end of December. 

We'll stay with my MIL for 6 weeks. Which will be a challenge on its own :P Not that I don't like my MIL, she is great and sweet and amazing. And it is beyond kind that she'll let us stay with her for so long. But still, it won't be my house. I'll have to adjust.

Last challenges I've been working on "food freedom". Not letting my life be determined by food or my weight. And I've succeeded. Finally! :D 

But now it's time to take better care of myself. Give myself permission to eat healthy. Even if it's inconvenient at times. My sons almost always eat healthy. I just make the time to feed them right. I should do the same for myself. I'm worth taking care of.

I won't need to make a challenge fitness wise: I'm still addicted to zumba and I'm loving the dancehall/hiphop/urban fusion classes I've been taking. I'm actually sad when I'm not able to go :D

The plan

Moving

Week 0: nothing. The boys have the week off from school, so I'm just going to be doing stuff with them.

Week 1: Decide on a new school for the boys (they'll start after their Christmas break in January), announce to the world when we're moving where

Week 2: Sort through toys and clothes. Donate/sell stuff we won't be taking with us. Go through the shed if I'm feeling brave... (it is the biggest mess you've ever seen :P ). Buy boxes/wrapping paper and such.

Week 3: Start packing. We'll be moving to my MIL at the end of this week

Week 4: Settle in at MIL's house. Clean old house. We'll turn over our keys at the end of this week.

 

Eating Clean

Week 0: Find clean recipes that won't take up too much time to make, or can be made in bulk. Find pre packaged clean stuff. Also: I need to be able to make it at MIL's house, where I don't have my own kitchen stuff. 

Week 1: Focus on eating clean lunches (breakfast and dinner are pretty clean as is).

Week 2: Focus on eating clean snacks

Week 3: Is there any way I can clean up my food somehow? When is it difficult for me to eat clean, and how can I fix it?

Week 4: Clean pepernoten, is there such a thing? And how can I get some?

Hi! :)  That does sound very challenging, no matter how nice your MIL is! 

Can I ask where you're moving?

We're staying in the same city, just moving to a bigger house. We're going to have an attic, the boys will get their own rooms AND we're going to have a back yard!

We stayed with my in-laws for 6 weeks when we moved back home to Scotland in 2009. It was not fun times. Your MIL sounds way nicer than mine, though, so that's good.

If you can survive it with a MIL from hell, I can survive this definitely :D We'll just have to adjust.

I can imagine the quest for the holy grail of clean peppernoten is like a day or two of intense baking to find the perfect recipe.

Quest 1: the doing nothing part went really well :P 

Quest 2: I've been browsing recipes, and watching youtube recipe video's. And found some interesting stuff. Also: we've got something called 'knijpfruit' that the boys love. It's mashed up fruit in a little pouch. Turns out it's clean AND tastes pretty good :D 

 

The sharks attacked today, but I made it to zumba and dancehall class anyway. I didn't give 110% like I usually do, but I managed a solid 80% on painkillers. And light movement helps with the pain too. 

Also: I got a ton of compliments from my zumba instructor and the other dancers for coloring my sons hair blue, and letting him wear a Minnie Mouse dress (not at the same time, but if he wanted it at the same time, it would be okay too off course :D ). Other people find it special that I let my sons be themselves, and with J (5 yo) that means lots of pink and the occasional strange outfit. It felt good getting compliments, for a moment it felt hard to accept them, because I don't think this is really that special, but I accepted them anyways :)
