So, back in September, I found out finally that I had Adrenal fatigue, and decided to make a big effort to change the world and make things right. I started going to bed earlier, cut right back on coffee, and axed sugar as much as I could and felt AMAZING for it, so I decided it was time to go back to the gym and get stronger. So like, I got a personal trainer to make me a work out and everything that I could do, and it really pushed me. My muscles have become SO WEAK since I got the IBS / Adrenal fatigue issue, and it really showed me how bad I was with the amount my body could take. I couldn't complete a work out of 15 minutes at all. I was training once a week cause in between sessions my body was crying in pain, and for some reason, I was heavily depressed. I persisted though, and for 2 months, I did this work out and considered taking it to twice a week except for I the fact that I got MAJOR depression after every work out, and became trigger sensitive to any negativity around me, and it broke my great sleeping habit I got myself into. I couldn't get up in the morning, couldn't think, everything for the last 2 months for me has been SHIT.
Except getting muscle strength back. I ignored the negatives for ages cause I was so proud of myself for getting physically stronger. I don't think I'm ready for even weightless workouts though. I read up on line that people that have gone through sever adrenal fatigue like me have to start off literally on breathing, and stretching exercises. I can't even use gravity to exercise my muscles cause the act of exercising my muscles activates my adrenal glands, and it hammers through my sugar resources, and makes me sugar crash, but it also my body finds it difficult to gather its senses together to heal me so I have to take it REALLY slow- to work out my adrenal grands, but not enough that they freak out.
It's... frustrating. I'm going to try out my gym's Yoga class, but lets be real here, my body wants to be lifting weights, while my immune system is freaking the hell out, so I'm going to see how I am in February, and see if my body's stress levels have gone down, cause I've been to Overload, and ran a stall at Armageddon, and Christmas is coming. My body is stressed, and it can't handle anything let alone exercise.
So- yeah. If you all have been concerned, I've spent the last 2 months in a very depressed state while my body battles me going to the gym for 15 minutes once a week to do box squats, standing push up, medicine ball lifts, and band pulls. It has been super hard, and I just have to let it go for now. I just can't life as I am right now, and it's way too much for me
I hope people are doing much better than me though! Please give me an e-hug if you read this so I know you're still around
