I do my workout in the mornings and have only recently started eating a light breakfast beforehand. It has definitely made a difference and I don't really know why it took me so long to start doing that. Usually I eat a yogurt before my strength training, then a breakfast sandwich or bowl of cereal after my workout. This morning I had oatmeal instead of yogurt and it really hit the spot and gave me what I needed!

Almond butter on 45 cal bread sounds perfect. I too have the question/issue of not eating prior to work outs. I work out first thing. I could do this. Thanks!

I hit the gym at 5am so I am up at 4:45 and not really wanting to "fix" or take time to eat. BUT, my trainer insists that I eat before my workouts because they are hard. So the night before I put 1 tablespoon peanut butter spread over Sara Lee's 45 cal bread and fold it in half and stick it in a baggie. Eat it on my way to the gym... I have a large protein shake after the workout and oatmeal a few hours later! Sheri

That's a good breakfast. Oatmeal is good around this time of the year. Very filling, also. So you will have the fuel you need to get you through your exercise.
Something to be thankful for is that you're here to be thankful.

I generally go to the gym after breakfast. Not sure what type of breakfast I should be eating beforehand. I usually do zumba or spinning, sometimes sculpt classes. Any suggestions? I'd love to hear what others have. Today I had oatmeal with milk, nuts, and honey. Seemed to be okay.
