Have you recently made a big change in how much you exercise or what/how much you eat? If not, exercise may not be the problem. Chronic over-exercise, especially if combined with under-eating, can cause fatigue. But if you haven't changed your routine recently, it could be the fatigue has other causes--poor sleep, stress, a medical problem, etc. If it continues, it might be worth mentioning it to your doc.
Are you exercising in the morning? When did you start working out regularly? I ask because I felt the same way for a few weeks when I started going to the gym every morning. But, I was exhausted all day. I wasn't working rediculously hard or anything, but my body wasn't used to it. Now I feel tired if I don't workout! Today I had to be at work early and therefore didn't get my workout in and I just feel worn down. I can't wait to go home and get some exercise in!

That sounds frustrating. Could you slip in a piece of fruit to give you a bit of energy? Are you able to exercise in the morning? Maybe some days you could just do a "bare minimum" and see if that helps. You will work through this! Good luck.

I thought exercise was supposed to energize you. But by the time 4:00pm rolls around my eyes droop and I become desperate for a nap. I usually have a cup of coffee and that helps a bit. But why am I hitting that wall? I never felt exhausted like this when I didn't exercise regularly.
