My energy level is highest very early in the morning and I go strong all morning, then get tired about an hour after lunch and am slower and somewhat brain fogged for several hours many days. I perk up markedly in the late afternoon and go strong until bedtime.

I'm such a morning person and take full advantage. Lately I've been getting a second-wind later in the afternoon but nothing like my morning energy.

Mine is definitely the mornings, so I make sure I get in my training for the day before noon!

my energy cycle is pretty much identical to PATTIJOHNSON's... I get up at 4:30 and put in about 45 minutes at the gym before rushing to work. I get home around 4 and HAVE to take a nap and I stay pretty tired throughout dinnertime until about 7. Then I try to sneak in another 30 minute workout before tv time. I'll have to re-evaluate what I'm eating (or not eating) that's making me so tired....

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm working on various things, trying to see if I can get past the mid-day sleepiness. Sleep times and what and how much I eat mid-day are being considered.

Mid morning for me.

Try the Virgin Diet. It's likely something you're eating that's affecting you. I'm pretty sure it's wheat that does it to me.

Check to make sure you are hydrated and getting enough protein in in the morning.

I tend to get more done later in the day than the morning.

Yup. You pretty much described me to "T". I rarely nap though in the afternoon. That's family and relaxation time with my kids (or as much as you can relax with a 6, 5 and 3 year old) in the backyard. A skinny latte (w/expresso) from my new Tassimo does wonders. emoticon

I usually get my second wind in time for dinner.

But yup. Mornings I'm bouncing off the wall. I wake up around 5-6am and my feet barely touch the floor until noon-1pm. I also do my workout first thing after my morning coffee.

I accomplish most of my days chores in the morning, right after I have coffee and breakfast. Then in the middle of the day after lunch, I seem to get so tired and have to take a nap. Later on, in the evening, my energy comes back. This happens daily and seems to not matter what time I go to bed or how much sleep I get. If I do exercises, I have to do them in the morning. It easier to put them off if I wait and procrastinate until the end of the day. Housecleaning, cooking and running errands are other things I do in the morning hours. If I sit around until noon, usually nothing will get done the rest of the day. I guess you would call me a morning person.

When is your peak energy time and what kinds of things to you do during it?
