Well, I definitely seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth (or at least fallen from this blog). I guess I’ll start where I fell off. I started a job with a new company in November of 2014. I loved it at first, since it was something new. Over time it got quite busy there and the work seemed to keep piling on. I never knew when I was getting off work. I was putting in 60+ hours there to make sure that everything was complete. I never liked to leave anything for the next day, which I wish I would’ve done that. When I would get home I never had the energy or the motivation to work out. I just lost my motivation completely to work out and even eat healthy it seems. My stress levels and anxiety skyrocketed with this new job causing me to go on medication as well as visiting a therapist to help me. Found out from her I had OCD as well.
Anyway, fast forward to May of 2015, and I’m at a different city for the same company. I just can’t believe how different these two places are. I’m no longer on my anxiety medication, which is awesome. I know now when I’ll be leaving work, which gives me time to plan a workout. It just seems crazy to me how stress levels vary from place to place within the same company. I suppose both areas are ran a tad different, so that probably plays a part in it.
This past Monday, which was August 1st, I started the Beachbody program, The Master’s Hammer & Chisel. I’m following along with the nutrition plan for it as well, which is the toughest part for me. I love food. Anyway, I’m definitely going to start using this blog to document my journey. I think it’ll help me in the long run.
