You are training too much. Just like chronic high blood pressure can become body's new norm if you aren't careful so too can chronic overtraining. I'm no stranger, myself, to overtraining. When I was 19 - 20 I bodybuilded 2 hours a day 6 days per week. I suffered the same lack of desire to train but pushed myself to workout anyway. At some point though you will have to back off the working out. Getting one's self into a state of overtraining and exhaustion can takes months to recover from.
Whenever I feel myself losing the desire to train I take that as a cue that I'm likely over reaching or over training and take a break.
A few months ago I bought BioForce Hrv BioForce HRV |. It's based upon the $35K OmegaWave http://www.omegawave.com/. Bioforce HRV was developed by Joel Jamison, who trains UFC fighters. Jamison scaled it for use with an Iphone or Ipad. This thing knows if I drank a couple glasses of wine the evening before. I'm still learning how to use it but so far I like the info it's giving me.
I figured out how to buy it for $50 but you won't get the instruction book to go with it. If I was doing personal training I would want my clients to have the system so I could monitor how hard I could work them out on that day, or if they need to take that day off. I expect to see other companies (like Polar or Nike) to develop their app software.

Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?
