LADIES;;;

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

Not a lady but it's normal because when you're in your period, you body goes through hormonal change one of them being an increase in insulin... That's the bloated and exhausted feeling!

Can you tell me if I'm posting/answering correctly pls. Ty!!!!

My daughter, 17yrs old.....Varsity Volleyball player, has super bad bloating cramping, etc & she said it motivates her even more. Guess everyone's different. Lol

Same here! I eat more, feel sluggish and just generally can't be bothered doing anything, let alone hit the gym!

Thank you, Noel, I didn't know that even though I've read much about hormones!

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.

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.

What I mean is that a period tracker also can help if you track those other days when you feel sluggish. Maybe you're ovulating or have pms.

Thanks for the info Anna. I'll have to look into a period tracker. Cause I usually don't get cramps but this go around they are terrible!

I've got Period Tracker Deluxe for Android. I'm happy with it apart from that it doesn't sync between devices.
