I am just starting back with exercising. I have about 85-95 lbs. to lose. Yesterday, I got up and went to a 5:30 am Barbell Class that had tons of upper body strength training, lower body and abs. It is definitely a great strength training workout. I work all day and want to spend time with my kids and husband at night so I need to commit to working out in the am.
So, my question is, I did the class from 5:30 to 6:30 am. I got a shower at the YMCA and headed right to work. When I got to work at 8 am I had my oatmeal with ground flax, wheat germ, applesauce and a couple of raisins.
Is that too long to wait to eat after a workout. I cannot eat before I go. It is too early. I want to get the best benefit for my body for all of my efforts. I am in the beginning stages of getting fit again. I am not "training" for anything. Just want to get back on track with my health. I will also be doing cardio on the opposite days of the class in the am and my breakfast will be the same time as well.
Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
