I battled depression- Blogger Miss Mandi opens up

Food blogger Mandi Sarro has opened up about her battle with depression.

She revealed how she could lock herself in her house, cry, drink and barely ate.

“After a month of working out, I didn’t see any results and that bothered me, just like everyone else starting their fitness journey. After one month, I battled a mini depression. For three weeks I locked myself in my house, I cried, drank and barely ate. If I had to leave the house I would put on a brave face. As I wallowed in my dark days, each day @nanciemwai would call me and apart from checking up on me, she could say ‘don’t you think if you went to the gym you’ll feel better?” My answer was always a no. For those three weeks, the gym was the last place on my mind. I continued being in my shitty cycle.”

After the three weeks, Mandi said she picked herself up.

“I gave myself a major pep talk. I told myself I couldn’t quit. The same day I went to the gym. I vowed to commit myself as much as life was going according to ‘plan’.  I’m constantly asked to share what motivates me and if I’m being honest, I don’t have any pointers.

I am my own motivation. I cannot quit on myself, I like to show off my body to myself, it makes me feel good and lastly, fitness has instilled discipline,” she concluded.
