I've noticed some sort of pattern where my energy levels are concerned.
I've come back from a 3rd burnout recently. It took 2 years to recover. It was slow and often frustrating.
In the past several months I've noticed that my energy level plummets for days at a time, usually after a couple days of busy activity (ex. Canning tomatoes for 3 days, or a weekend of my husband and me babysitting our 5 year old grandson).
I'm wondering if this would be a long term effect of those burnouts. I've been told that you don't necessarily recover 100% after a burnout, and after 3 probably much less than that.
This makes regular exercise a challenge, but I'm adapting. I know better than to push myself past the fatigue.
I've had blood work done and everything is fine.
It's just very frustrating cos I never know when I'm going to wake up exhausted or not. Some weeks I can do a lot and keep going. Other weeks, no.
Because of this I haven't completed a program or even a 2 week challenge in quite awhile. It makes it difficult to stay motivated.
