I'm Defective, I guess...

That caught your attention! haha, I was just reading some stuff about how working out supposedly gives you more energy and thinking, "That's a bunch of crap!" So I decided to post about it and see if it really does give more energy to the average person. By average person, I mean just everyday people that try to work out, and do it ok, but not crazy-workout-animals. I am not in that category, and so it wouldn't help me. I've been working about about 4 times a week for the last 9 weeks and I do not feel any more energized. It is frustrating being tired all the time, and I was hoping it would be magically dissapated by being more active. I'm sure nothing can break through the "Working-Nights-Hangover" it's worse than cryptonite to superman! Anyway, any of you actually felt more energy from working out regularly?
Thanks for listening to my little rant, and hope your New Year's resolutions are still going strong!

I don't mean to burst your bubble, but I always feel more energized when I workout. I bet if you were working days and exercised in the mornings before work you would feel it alot more!! Do you take vitamins too? That will probably help out.

I did look at it, but I haven't lost any weight. I guess I'm losing fat, and putting on muscle, but no weight change has happened. And I am taking vitamins. I do think if I were working days I would feel more energized. Oh well, I love what I do, even if I don't love the hours!

Just a multivitamin might not be enough. Everyone has different needs but up north here, Vitamin D is soooo important. My mom felt a difference when she started taking an extra vitamin D supplement. She can't work out so to say except walking. I son't know if this helps at all.

I don't feel any more energized either, but that might just be me. I need to get some vitamin supplements in me. That might help. As for being tired....it could be something else?

I go through spurts of being tired and energized anyway- and while I've beem working out these past couple months- I feel the same. Sometimes I have tons of energy and sometimes not.

May you should try some vitamins?
