I love morning workouts because it ensures that I get the workout in -- no excuses of being tired at the end of the day! I usually eat afterwards.

exactly my thoughts....
exercise before work would be good, but would mean up at half 5!....

i workout first thing in the morning as well. i'm usually at the gym by half six which means i wake up at 445 am!!! i know that sounds insane, but that is absolutely THE ONLY way that i don't make excuses to avoid going.

i actually eat both before and after my workout. since there is so much time between the time when i wake up and the time i actually get to the gym, i usually eat a yogurt or some cottage cheese and half a piece of fruit. these are the only two things that i've found that give me enough energy to get through my workout, but that don't weigh down my stomach. anything heavier than that and my stomach starts doing flip-flops while i'm on the treadmill. once i'm done with my workout and at the office, i eat a "proper" breakfast at like half 10.

If I'm having an early workout, I'll usually have water and a breakfast bar (I love the Kashi ones) about 10 minutes before I begin to give me a little energy. After my workout, I'll hop into a cold shower, then have a real breakfast after I get out!

It works for me!

i have to go to school by 8.30AM so i wake up at 6.30/7 and get my workout done (cardio only - 36 minutes) and then eat breakfast, get ready to school.
Doing morning exercises give me energy and refresh my mind

When I go for early morning runs, I eat something very small before I run, like a few almonds, or a couple of pieces of turkey bacon, and then eat breakfast when I get home.

I get up at 5 to 5:30 to workout. I wasn't eating anything beforehand. Now I'm having just a piece of fruit first - I thought maybe it would give me a little more energy and be good for the metabolism. I'm not sure if it's made a difference. But I can't do yoga or run with anything heavier in my stomach.
