When your tired, you’re tired
Today I was exhausted, beyond exhausted, I mean I should be, I work third shift and then come straight to the gym and during the day get maybe 4-5 hours of sleep and sometimes I work both jobs, personal training during the day and at night the second job. It can be a lot on my shoulders and very exhausting and yet I still manage to make it to the gym each morning — but even after making it, sometimes it isn’t enough to get my energy levels higher, I just try, try, try until I realize I need to go home and get some sleep. Trying is better than nothing, but trying barely meets expectations if at all. Yet, I made today a short workout — very short workout in hopes it would make working out today easier but not so much because I still barely finished and the only way I finished was crossing off one workout and doing one less set of two workouts. Blah, what gives? I need to prioritize my sleep schedule and do a better job with taking care of my body overall.
If this has ever been your struggle, then you know exactly how I feel.
