Exercise. To feel energized, to not be tired, you gotta exercise. Not a lot: ten minutes strength training (umpteen free videos on this site), thirty minutes cardio (walking, etc.), four or five days a week will take care of it. In fact, this amount of exercise will transform your body into a sculpted masterpiece.

Spark On!

Eliminate "I will try". Replace with "I will".
You are now ready to succeed.
Let's go.

It sounds like there are some things that need addressing re the tiredness. There are some things that need considering:

* Are you eating enough?

* Are you getting in fruit, veges, enough quality protein and enough quality carbs (not processed)?

* Are you burning the candle at both ends? (Do you got be bed early enough?)

* Is your mattress a good one that allows a decent night's sleep?

* Do you get fresh air each day?

* Are you on any medication?

* Do you have any health conditions which can cause this? (Hypothyroidism, Diabetes, Low Iron, etc.?)

My suggestion to you is that if this continues, that you make an appointment with your Dr to see what is going on. It may be that your nutrition needs tweaking - it may be something medical. Your Dr will be able to help you find the cause, therefore the treatment!

Good luck,
Kris

thanks, i guess i need to get to that mindset, where Excersise is like going to work, not quite there yet... it feels more like a chore, i did join Zumba classes for awhile, but with my hubby working late all the time and the kids starting soccer, i don't know when i will get the chance to go again... so for now i got find something at home to do. i was more motivated though, when i was doing Zumba and that was something i enjoyed doing because it was a group.

I feel like that ALL THE TIME, but I always bite through.

When ever I dont feel like working out I do the follow:

1) Download a new sassy, motivating workout song and listen to it to rev me up for the workout
2) Wear my favorite gym clothes that make me feel most confident
3) Look up recipes for a yummy post workout meal that I am allowed to have if I do my very best working out
4) Look at my progress picture to keeping me wanting better results knowing I can do it

Hope one of those help you :)

I do it anyways...just like going to work.

You don't need to be motivated to do stuff..just do it because you have to, not because you want to.

edited: aha! so you have kids! remember when they were newborns? did you not feed them at 2 am and then 4 am because you were tired and not motivated? exercising for me is the same thing..

I know the weather is dreary and causes people to want to stay inside, but remember your physics lessons ? A body in motion tends to stay in motion. A body at rest tends to stay at rest. Try to do a little something so that you don't get stuck in a rut. How about taking a daily walk ? walking is wonderful cardiovascular exercise. I walk every day, rain or shine.

Also, are you getting enough sleep ? have you been under any unusual stress ? excess stress can cause fatigue. Are you eating enough ? food = energy and no food = no energy. So, some of your fatigue could be a result of not eating enough.

Maybe you're just tired of your exercise routine. If so, time to shake things up. try a different class at the gym. try a different dvd. do something just because it looks like fun. Mostly, do your best to try to get up and about. try to be active even if the only thing you do is take a daily walk. that's still a step in the right direction.

Okay, so you're going to hate me for this, but if you want more energy, you need to work out! Working out DOES give you more energy. If it's sapping your energy, you're probably overdoing. Go for moderate exercise at first - even 10 minutes - don't get in an "all or nothing" mindset. If you even walk around the house or your office for 5 minutes that's 5 minutes more than not working out. If you do it twice today, that's 10 minutes. Again, anything is better than nothing. As you exercise more, keep trying new workouts and you'll probably start to crave it. This is a great list:
