Before peri started, I used to love to work out! I used exercise to manage my terrible PTSD and General Anxiety disorder. It helped with sleep and dealing with a stressful job. The endorphin dump after a jog in the hot sun was the best high I've ever had. I always prioritized exercise as a way to manage my health. My motto used to be "if I am unwell, I'm useless to everyone. I'm going to the gym."
Now, I am usually too mentally and physically exhausted to exercise.
Now I prioritize the stupidest / unnecessary work tasks over exercise.
When I do exercise, I get no endorphin surge.
When I do exercise, I still have garbage sleep.
When I do exercise, it does nothing for my anxiety.
Has this happened to any of you ladies? Any suggestions about how to get my treadmill love back on?
I truly feel like I could handle this absurdity better if I were getting to the brain chemicals from the gym like I used to.
