Im tired a lot lately but when it comes to nesting urges I know Ill get up and do hours worth of stuff if Im focused on it. The other day I had to clean right then and when I got up to do it I magically had energy.. I also ended up spending a whole day on the nursery and putting things together.. Next time I have errands to run, I will set my mind to buying storage baskets while Im out so I can do more in the nursery. That way I make magical energy out of nowhere to do what needs to get done,

I love these qotd's.. I like reading through what/how everyone else is doing.

I find that I am ok energy wise in the morning/early afternoon (probably because I drink a cup of coffee in the morning LOL) but then at about 3 in the afternoon I am pretty much useless for the rest of the day. So I try to get whatever I need to get done, or most of it, done in the morning.

I do okay if I remember to eat something regularly. I definitely have a lack of energy if I haven't eaten in several hours. My midwife also have me some B-12 vitamins that really help if I'm seriously dragging.

I try to do as much as I can in the mornings because usually around 1 or 2 I start to go downhill energy wise. I do agree maybe it's because I have coffee in the morning and that helps out a lot! lol

I don't have the option of not having energy, even when I am exhausted I have to just keep going. I am making myself eat very healthy foods, I take a vitamin and liquid chlorophyll everyday.

My energy is up and down depending on what I eat and what my waking mood is

Walk! My energy is up and down. Mostly down and unless I have something to do I usually just give into it and nap or lounge. If it's late and I know I will be up all night I will walk, sit on the porch, wash clothes or something that switches my thoughts from sleep.

I suffer terribly during the week because I work 2nd shift. I am good until about 6 then I am just dragging and staring at the clock until 11pm. Its worse when I finish all my work early and pretty much have nothing to do

I am majorly lacking in the energy department lately. I feel like I will get the motivation to do something and then once I start doing it my body says "nope, not gonna happen." I really hope this improves and maybe it's just because I've been hurting more than normal and not sleeping well cause I have stuff to get done!

My energy is up and down. It really depends on what and how much I eat and sleep.

I don't have any energy at all lately either. Luckily my son doesn't ever these past few days. I have been napping when he naps, but still so tired
