This week's update is in (short) list form because that's about all I have time for at the moment.
- Hubs finally got his orders! This means that the out-processing for our move could finally get started. HALLELUJAH. We decided to hire PCS cleaners even though I was originally hesitant (read: cheap). Then I realized that it's hard enough doing the day to day stuff with my crazy little babe, so cleaning the whole house top to bottom on top of purging/organizing? Just not going to happen--at least not without me stressing myself like crazy. It's actually a pretty reasonable price, especially because it's a guaranteed pass to get out of housing, and it means we get to spend more quality time together. Double win.
- We are leaving in just over two weeks! We were not planning to get on a plane until the end of June but the military had other plans for us (surprise, surprise). Currently, our focus is figuring out how to get everything done for the move, squeeze in the last of our favorite Japanese things, and plan out our itinerary for the bit of leave Hubs is taking once we get to the States. There will be a lot of ramen in our future.
- Planning a super long trip with a big kid and a baby is much harder than with just a big kid (duh, right?). I have no idea how to pack for a little person who gets bored every 5 minutes, is too young for movies, and wants to be moving constantly. We're going to try to break up our trip over two days so hopefully it isn't terrible. Anyone have tips on flying with an infant?
- The 21 Day Fix is complete! Hubs and I did it together and I'm so glad we did. There were some days I didn't feel like working out but I knew I had to since we were counting on each other. It was a great system! I wasn't doing it for weight loss (since I was lucky enough to return to pre-pregnancy weight from breastfeeding) but I lost about 3 pounds and am down 5.25 inches! I learned that my hips are indeed permanently a little wider but my waist is back to normal and I'm definitely more toned. Hubs ended up losing 6.5 inches and 9.6 pounds! It was a game changer for him as far as kicking his sweet tooth habit, making sure he eats enough during the day, and getting in the right amount of nutrients each day. We've started our second round and will be doing 21 Day Fix Extreme once we get to the States. Let me know if you want to learn more or get in on this!
