How to SPOT the signs of overtraining…⁠

After literal decades (!!) of overtraining, I’ve learned a thing or two about how to cut back on fitness when you love it so much. ⁠

It’s not always easy, but it is always necessary.⁠


Here’s how to spot the signs that you’re overtraining

Extreme fatigue😴 ⁠

During the workout, you feel great. Two hours after that workout? You crash. You need a cup of coffee, a nap, or a loooong sit on the couch. Motivation plummets. Brain fog sets in. ⁠

Getting out of bed is a chore 🛌⁠

Getting out of bed in the morning feels awful. You hit snooze a million times and struggle to your first cup of joe. You don’t have the same energy or motivation as before. ⁠

Sleep issues 💤⁠

Waking up in the middle of the night, not staying asleep, not falling asleep, waking up hungry because of low blood sugar, etc. ⁠

Craving carbs and sugar🍞⁠

Constantly wanting the sweet stuff (gimme ALL the cookies). ⁠

Headaches 🤯⁠

Headaches can be a sign of doing too much and are related to dehydration, electrolyte loss, etc.⁠

Weight gain ⚖️⁠

This happened to me during my Orangetheory experience! I gained weight quickly, mostly in my belly, hip, and butt area, which is very hormonal. ⁠

PMS/hormonal imbalances 🤦‍♀️⁠

Extreme PMS, irregular cycles, hair loss, you name it. ⁠

Overuse injuries 🤕 ⁠

Think hip injuries, knee injuries, etc. ⁠

If any of those resonate with you, it could be time to adjust your workouts.

If you’re questioning if you are overtraining and overdoing it, check out my fitness programs! ⁠

They were inspired by my journey with overtraining. The workouts in my programs are very straightforward. They’re not super long. All you need is a set of dumbbells. ✨⁠

They can help you achieve results without exercising a million hours a week and stressing your body! ⁠
