I felt like garbage these last 5 months from too much work and work related stress. I’ve done a hard reset this November: stopped the nightly drinking (to deal with the stress), stopped feeding my body comforting junk food, stopped drinking coffee, started eating high quality proteins again, re-upped my salad intake, eating chewy and filling grains, forcing myself to do a ton of workouts again like I used to before... And I feel great, just after 13 days of this. My body doesn’t ache anymore. I’m not puffed out anymore. I feel calm and happier. I have regained that feeling like I can take on the world again. I need the gym like I need air. It was my mistake to let work take over my life and letting myself stop doing the essential things that I need to do to keep myself happy, satisfied and healthy. This is where I should be. I thought it was depression but it was my lifestyle that I let slip due to work.
