Be/run out of steam

1. The kids are sound asleep. After an exciting day at Six Flags, they are completely out of steam.
2. We had to move a lot of heavy boxes and by noon, we had completely run out of steam.
3. I'm having a tough week of back-to-back meetings and presentations. I have a feeling I'll run out of steam before the week's over.
4. You need to slow down! You don't want to run out of steam so quickly.
5. If it gets to be too much or you run out of steam, give me a holler, ok? [A holler is a yell or a call]

To be out of steam or run out of steam means not to have energy left to do things.
