Our expert says:
Any Mom with 3 children will suffer from tiredness. If you did have your blood iron, glucose and thyroid tested and were given a clean bill of health, then you are probably just tired because you have to do so much each day. Eating a well balanced diet and going for the walks will make a great difference. I am at present not able to go on my daily walk (knee injury) and I feel exhausted. So paradoxically doing exercise esp in the fresh air, may make you physically tired just after walking, but the overall effect is very positive. Now about that sugar! Sugar as such is not really as bad as it is always made out to be, but you are ingesting 5 x 3 x 10 (heaped spoons you say) = 150 g of sugar per day. That is too much and it could lead to problems down the line. Try to re-educate your tastebuds by having 2,5 t in each cup of coffee for at least a week, then 2 t per cup for a week and so on until you are down to 1 teaspoon per cup of coffee per day: 5 x 5 (flat teaspoons!) = 25 g of sugar/day which is perfectly reasonable. Give it a try.
Good luck with the new programme and may your energy increase soon.
