Two words! Breathe Right strips! They are amazing for allergies. You could be tired and sluggish because you're not getting enough oxygen. Wear them whle you sleep or even when you work out. I promise you'll see the difference right away. Also, some airborne or zicam for good measure will pep you up! Good luck!

Have you tried changing your meds? I changed to over-the-counter actifed a few years ago and found I don't get as tired from that as I used to with other meds.
Sometimes we just have to push through the exhaustion. I hate doing it too - and I often try but don't succeed. But we have to always have that conversation with ourselves...and some days it will work and other days it won't.
It is attitude, not circumstance, that makes success possible in even the most unlikely conditions.
I'm struggling with that myself. I have been going into it saying that i'm going to do at least 10 mins. and if I go longer great and if not at least I did something. Hopefully working up to longer and longer. I have had bronchitis for over a week so I haven't been able to do much. Don't be hard on yourself just try to do a little something everyday on the days your feeling tired.
I would really like to get into exercising but with my allergies, it's causing me to be really tired this time of year. Does anyone have any ideas how to get the energy (and motivation) to actually exercise? Coffee doesn't seem to help any more.
