Are you exercising at all? I know it's weird, but sometimes when I have no energy it helps if I walk.

Ok honey, I will ask the obvious. LOL

-Are you PMSing? I know I lose all my energy 2-3 days before TOM.

-Are you getting enough protein?

-Having too many simple carbs?

I know I am being Ms. Obvious but I have to ask the some questions of myself all the time! LOL

Take care of yourself...do a mani/pedi/facial night or something! That helps me. That, and don't forget "this too shall pass!"

i like those calcium chews, but unfortunately, they each have 20 calories, and in order for me to get the amount of calcium i need, i'd have to have 5 a day, and i just wasn't willing to 'spend' 100 calories every day on a vitamin!!!

1 I got a little more sleep (sleep energy whoda thunk?)
2 I had a different breakfast Ive been having a super yummy spinach and bP lowering garlic Quicherole and that might not be too good for Princess anemia over here! yogurt and flax
3 I had a coffee with milk not protein shake
4 My lunch was strictly protein 2 servigns of turkey and 2 LCL
5 Im heading out to get some calcium supplements and some nuts for later
(tho one can argue you guys are my nuts!!)

I believe most surgeons/nuts recommend supplementing 1500-2000mg of calcium per day. This is usually at least 3 doses, and most are 2 pills per dose (check the label, as there are some popping up now that are 500mg per pill, and some that are less, like the Citracal Petites). Also, be sure it is clacium citrate and not calcium carbonate, as the citrate is more easily absorbed, and the carbonate has the potential to help cause kidney stones. I would also make sure the calcium include Vitamin D, which aids in absorption. And, finally, don't take too much at one time, as the body is only able to absorb up to about 600mg at one time, so doses need to be spread out a few hours apart.

Kier..... this might sound wacky but could it be the change in season/weather/time change? I know everyone at work is DRAGGGGGING, tired and foggy feeling, for weeks now. Just a thought.
