So I had my first training session at the new gym this morning (at 7am, can we really call it morning when the sun isn't out yet?).

Getting up at stupid-o-clock had me rushing around all out of sync and I didn't have time to grab breakfast before I left, I figured I'd just eat afterwards...yeah, don't do that. I **** near died. Sick, light headed, and of course sore since I'm out of shape from slacking for so long.

Gonna have to figure out what I can eat in the mornings that A. provides what I need and B. doesn't take time to make. I usually cook up an egg, piece of toast, cottage cheese and some yogurt, but that takes 10 mins to prepare and I just don't see myself doing that at 6 am when I'm used to getting up at 8...Heck if I start doing the morning classes I'll have to get up at 5.

So...quick, high protein, not horribly tasting or expensive breakfast ideas?

Sounds more like dehydration than hunger. Drink a full bottle of water every night. Really, you don't want to work out with a full stomach.

The recommendation I've heard is "toast at most." So stick with one or two pieces of toast. If you're doing a strength training workout, you do your protein intake after the fact. Follow it up with a protein milkshake or Cliff bar or something.

Actually, a Cliff bar in lieu of toast for breakfast is probably a good option.

This. Drink some water when you first get up so there's something in your stomach to keep the hunger at bay until after you work out. The cottage cheese and yogurt you can do up the night before and bring with you. If you like boiled eggs, you can do the same and just reheat it by leaving it in a cup of hot water while you're eating the cottage cheese and yogurt.

This is what I do a few times a week at night while I'm preparing dinner:

Chop up some onion, mushrooms, tomato and spinach. Scramble 6 eggs. Season with some salt, pepper and dill. Mix it all up together and put it in a Tupperware.

In the morning I pour some out into a microwaveable container and nuke it for about 2 minutes. Stir it a bit and then nuke again to fully cook.

If I'm really in a rush, I just mix one of those Carnation Instant Breakfast shakes with 1% milk and drink.

You can also boil some eggs and leave in the refrigerator for a quick breakfast in the morning.

ETA: I normally work out first thing in the morning. I drink water with lemon and then work out. I eat breakfast afterward.

Pickled eggs. You can pickle a dozen or so ahead of time. Right before consuming, slice in half the long way and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Yum.

If your exercise routine is too cumbersome there is more potential for failure. Do you have to gym in the morning before work? Can you start work a bit later?

If your exercise program is to hard or much to start with its not doing you any good. You have to take steps getting back into exercise.
Eating properly and being hydrated is also very important. You are now paying the price for not eating/drinking and over exercising.

Protein shake or just eat a banana.
LOTS of water, all day everyday. Seriously its the most important thing to put in your body.

Drinking water beforehand is okay, but it isn't quite working through your system at that point like you need it to. The heavier your work out, the more water your muscles need. Like I said, every night drink a large bottle of water. Also, it wouldn't hurt to have a sports drink after the work out to get some of the electrolytes back into your system.

Or better yet, chocolate milk. Has pretty much the same electrolytes levels, less sugar (I beleive) and more protien (which is essential when working out).

Thanks for the advice.

I was told to eat breakfast BEFORE I go and then something else afterwards. Obviously don't want a full stomach but need to eat something. I'm thinking cantaloupe or something, quick high energy before and then some protein and carbs (cottage cheese, yoghurt and toast with peanut butter maybe) after workout.

Has to be in the morning, can't start work later and can't go after work due to family commitments.

Yes, the idea here is to make the AM workout "easy" in the sense that it's not difficult to go or more time consuming than it has to be. I'm trying to remove the factors that stopped me from going, hence the new gym, it's on the way to work and it's in the same building as Tim Hortons so I can get my coffee on the way to work.

P90X workout recommends drinking a protein shake within half an hour after working out. No idea how valid that advice is, but they say it's both to provide protein your muscles will need and to re-hydrate you. Makes sense, I suppose.

Frankly, I'd recommend just going to bed earlier and getting up earlier. Suck it up!

(Frame of reference, I try to get to sleep by 11 each weeknight, 10:30 if possible. Wake up every day at 5:45).

That's exactly what you should do. Protein builds/repairs muscle and a successful workout involves tearing muscle up. No protein, no growth. A burst of protein after exercising will make a huge difference in muscle growth.

I drink a shake 30 minutes before and another immediately after the workout is over. They get kind of disgusting after a few weeks of 2 shakes 6 days a week, but it's necessary.

I usually stock up on protiens throughout the day and workout late for about a year. So far, it's been working pretty goshdarn well.

The more calories you have in your body, the more energy output you can have...but limit your junk food in take.

I should say also that after an intense session of cardio, I will drink pickle juice as well as water.
