A prolonged calorie deficit over time will leave you feeling lethargic and tired, especially if you couple that with cardio.

There are a few ways to prevent the lethargy though:

1. Don't diet at too extreme a caloric deficit

The lowest you can safely diet at as a female is 1,200 calories/day.  If doing this leaves you feeling weak and tired though, don't go lower than 500 calories below your maintenance.

What is your maintenance?

Your body requires a certain amount of calories to maintain it's current
weight (body weight in lbs x 15) if you were 150 pounds, that would be
150x15 = 2,250 calories/day.

To lose 1 pound you need to be in a deficit of 3,500 calories.  So if
you ate 500 calories less than this 2,250 each day (1,750 cals/day) you would
lose 1 pound each week.

So start off with that, 500 calories below maintenance and with a small deficit like that you should feel better.

2. Drink coffee

Perhaps not as healthy an option, if you drink coffee when you're feeling weak/lethargic, it will give you some pep to keep you alert and energetic for a while after....

3. Add re-feeds to your diet

A re-feed is where you take 1 day in your diet to eat at or slightly above your maintenance caloric intake.  This will re-fill your muscle glycogen and leave you feeling like you have energy again to handle the next few days of dieting.

Start a light exercise and then by time increase it. Do not minimize your food. Try to take juices after exercise. It will make up the deficiency. Regular exercise of about 20-30 minutes is enough and will make you fit and healthy.
