I always have breakfast first thing in the mornings. As a way to warm my body up, I have been doing yoga poses which gets my mind cleared too, so I don't go for that 2nd cup of coffee. I find I have more energy when I start my cardio & strength workout if I've eaten something 1/2 hour to 1 hour before the major workout. Bananas or fruits are great snacks.
I am also finding after a workout I am ravenous, so I will be looking for an article to clue me in to what to consume. I have been trying to 24 almond halves to munch while I drink up on the water and its seems to help. I do try after a hard workout to eat within the 1/2 hour to 2 hour range.
I think I will print this article out to refer back to when I seem to be stalling out in the progress to see if that might be the issue.
