Joy. That's what this new workout program is bringing to my life, and the timing is perfect. The last couple of years were rough. Really, really rough. On and off through most of that time, I was working my way through #80dayobsession, and that was the program I needed at that time. I needed to structure my days around the timed nutrition, and I needed to lift heavy for an hour while @autumncalabrese told me I could do hard things. Now, life has lightened up considerably, and the new program I'm doing is all about making sure I continue to claim that sliver of time for myself each day in a way that's happy and high energy but still nurturing and encouraging. I pretty much lost what little sense of personal identity I had in my thirties, with all the baby making, breastfeeding, being on opposite schedules from my husband, and always being home alone with little kids unless I was at school or grocery shopping. Now I'm in my forties, the youngest is finally about to start full day kindergarten, and I'm done putting myself last. With a husband who has #multiplesclerosis and no local family support aside from an unreliable mother in law whose health is rapidly declining, I need to make sure I'm mentally and physically healthy enough to take care of everyone and everything, and I need to be able to earn a living from home.
