Is anyone else dealing with being extra tired after exercising? Is it normal/is there any good way of dealing with it? Half of me is wondering if there's just some small thing I need to change, like eat before I exercise or something that will fix this problem.

So yesterday morning I exercised and started out with a lot of energy in the morning.. that didn't last very long at all. For some reason I've been dealing with exhaustion after exercising lately, that lasts for about a full day. By 8am I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer and slept until 11, but wasn't refreshed much at all. Thank goodness my kiddos don't mind Mama dozing on the couch. Was really good on food all day long and went to bed at 7 after Blaine got home and dinner was done. My poor husband had to wake me up as I had told him we needed to get some school shopping done, and we headed in to WalMart. On the way we got a flat tire, which he quickly changed, and I will need to deal with today. Was fighting sleep the whole shopping trip and grabbed a candy bar for a quick pick me up hoping the sugar would give me enough of a boost to make it to bed. Didn't get up and exercise this morning, was still too tired, although I am feeling better now after sleeping until 9am. I don't understand why I get so exhausted after exercising, will have to figure out how to deal with it better than just sleeping so much more. Plan on doing some light exercising today with the Wii Fit, and I'll see if that affects me the same way.
