Do u guys feel less or more motivated to workout when on your period?? I feel less, definitely and I feel so much fatter and it discourages me. Anyone else feel that way?
I get so bloated and my pants won't even fit for like 2 days
I have trouble getting motivated no matter what......well, that's not all true, but I don't have that problem during that time of the month. Plenty of my gf's do, but I think it's based on your body. I'm sure I'm older than you, don't get bloated or experience cramps, or have heavy days......which will take a lot out of you, leaving you feeling less motivated. So I'm sure there are plenty out there that are in the same boat, so to speak.
Thanks suzanne! And yeah its terrible
Thanks noel I didn't know that!! Good to know
Oh and yes Suzanne you are posting correctly :)
I definitely feel less motivated. My weight also increases during that time, which is normal, but it still freaks me out when I see the scale.
I get just as freaked out EVERY month when I get pimples, pms, sugar cravings and then bloat up. What has helped me is a period tracker where I can also track symptoms of different kinds. Now I can think "aha, my period is coming up" when my skin suddenly bursts out. Even though I'm really regular I've never been able to see the connection.
I rarely get cramps (they're MUCH worse when ovulating) but the bloating can make me feel less active and flexible.
Yeah me too Jackie.. I gain like 3 inches around the waist. I get so freaked out
