Sometimes in life, the "less is more" approach really works.
I think I am pushing myself too hard. I often find myself sweating profusely with little to 0 cardio involved in a workout. I'll probably get back to a 5x5 routine again and stick to 6 or less lifts a day. I usually only end up with 6 hours a day to rest as well... gonna try to bump it up to 8 once I get better and start lifting again. Going to take cold showers more often as well.

As of right now my diet consists of breakfast/lunch/dinner. I don't eat out often and drink at least 1/2 gallon of milk, 1/2 gallon of water, and at least 2 cups of OJ a day. For breakfast I have at least 2 eggs and toast. Sandwiches for lunch, and home cooked meals for dinner.

I work as a server at a restaurant many shifts a week so I'm probably just getting sick often from all the flu and cold bugs that have been going around this season.

embrace this moment
we are eternal
all this pain is an illusion
