I have been on a weight loss journey for the past few months and have been consistently working out and eating a healthy diet. However, I have recently started feeling fatigued and not as motivated to workout. I am wondering if this could be due to not giving my body enough rest and recovery time after workouts.
I typically work out 4-5 times a week, with a mix of cardio and strength training. I have been trying to push myself harder each time, but now I am starting to worry that it may be counterproductive to my weight loss goals.
I would love to hear from others who have experienced similar situations and how they were able to find a balance between intense workouts and proper rest and recovery. How do you know when your body needs rest, and what are some ways to make sure you are giving your body enough time to recover after a workout?
Thank you in advance for your insights and advice!
