Exercising is hard at the beginning but once you see the results you will start loving it more and more with time and it might turn into an obsession. With time you will find yourself doing cardio more and eating a lot less than before.
You will start doing more out of everything but you need to remember that too much of anything is never right. Such behavior can lead you to overtraining and overtraining is never good because it can affect your results and you may end up disappointed.
- First of all you need to stop acting like you are 20 years young and treat your body like it has the energy that it had in those years. Just stop and be careful with workouts. Be careful not to get hurt or sick because you will get even more damage to yourself.
- Take your time for recovery. It is okay for you to push yourself but not for that to cost you your overall health. Be patient, rest and relax your muscles.
- Straining vs training
Yes, exercise can indeed help a lot in relieving your stress from work or life at all. It works in a way that adds up an extra stress with exercising.
Yet when it comes to the physical you need to recover your body from all that stress you are putting it through. If you work out even more when you need rest you will start overtraining. Just take some day and sleep it off, go in the mountains or lie in bed all day reading a book. Charge up your batteries.
- You need to make a plan of doing the right amount of exercise and the right time.
- You have to stop doing too high in intensity exercise too often. You don’t need even more stress in your life.
- Listen to the signs of your body because it actually tells us and informs us through signs and symptoms that we are pushing too hard and overtraining. Our bodies demands for rest and recovery and you need to be aware of it. For example you may start experiencing fatigue if overtraining. You will start being and feeling weak all the time and you will run out of energy. Our central nervous system also protects us from overworking by giving us impulses that prevent us to move as much as we want.
As results of this overtraining one can experience depression, anxiety, food cravings, blood sugars up and down, disrupted hormones or lower metabolism.
In order for you to protect yourself from any of these conditions and prevent overtraining you should just start listening to your body more carefully and respond to it. Just take some time for recovery and as soon as you charge up your batteries you will get back on track. You will have greater results than if you continue to over train yourself.
