I busted my ass of for almost two years straight. I went to the gym 5-6 days a week, i completely changed how i eat. I was in the best shape of my life. I started going through a stressful time, working two jobs, and then a major career change. I told my self 2 months off from the gym to get my career going. It wont hurt me, I need to do it. Well here I am about 6 months later. I have probably been to the gym 10 times in the last 6 months. I feel like shit and compared to 6-8 months ago I look like shit. I am going to get back in there and be better than I ever was before. I cant belive i did this to myself after where i used to be and all the effort I put into it. I feel like I let myself down plus a few others who greatly encouraged me and were behind me to help me get better.
