I've been lifting on and off for many years but I have never managed to stay on track because I feel like I'm always so fucking tired. I just wanna lay in bed all the time and just the thought of exercising makes me cringe. I do look like I lift, but I only manage to stay on routines for max 3 months before I go back to being the lazy fuck that I've always been. what do? could it be hormonal or vitamin deficiency?
I have gone though phases where I tracked every calorie and all nutritional values of the food that I ate, and I've gone through phases where all I ate was junk food, and I honestly didn't feel any different.
Not that guy but I got tested for sleep apnea twice and it came back negative. I seem to have some of the symptoms of it: exhaustion, waking up out of breath multiple times a night, chest feels heavy, etc.
It seems to get somewhat better if I get out of bed for 1 hour or so since I can breathe easier that way. But I can't get out of bed for that long 4-5 times a night. Is it just stress in this case?
OP, are you me?
The only thing that sometimes works is upping the caffeine intake. But that won't get us too far.
allright, thanks I'll get an appointment and see how it goes. I live pretty far north and I rarely get any sunlight. hopefully it's as simple as just taking some supplements to cure this shit
Getting enough sunlight a day is so important to feeling energetic.
I live pretty far north as well and sometimes I don't see the sun at all for 2-3 days and I feel shitty. Then if I go outside and walk in the sun for an hour I feel so much better afterwards.
But they are fucking expensive for a poorfag like me and the insurance won't cover it unless I get diagnosed with sleep apnea. How many times do I have to suck my GPs dick before he gives me the diagnosis?
Lack of sleep is the biggest thing. Also, binging on carb heavy foods can make you crash pretty hard at times.
Are you depressed, mate? I found that after I got on depression meds my energy levels went way up and I hardly ever felt that soul crushing feeling before a workout.
Consult a doctor.
Get a blood test with a complete blood count, your levels of vitamins hormones, especially thyroid hormone, and whatever else your doctor thinks is good. If everything is fine then maybe it's time to evaluate your lifestyle, friends, job and whatever else you have going on in your life and work towards making changes that are healthy and beneficial. The rest will slowly start making sense and the energy will come to you!
honestly i know elliott hulse is a meme around these parts but check out his "bioenergetic" videos on youtube. it's all about breaking down the unnoticed depressed and tight muscles of the body that are restricting your energy. it's a great natural way to feel energized before work outs and kinda helps shake out all those thoughts in your head so you can lift with a clear head.
i have Mediterranean thalassemia which is a blood disorder that automatically makes you lazy and this technique works great for me. plus healthy eating habits and staying hydrated also helps tons.
