Pre-workout snack
« on: August 19, 2011, 05:47:31 AM »
I workout 5-6x a week.  3x a week is going to be with my ROTC batallion (starting next week). I have a feeling these workouts might start out a little on the wussy side until we get the new cadets up to speed and then increase in intensity. The other 2-3x will be weight lifting/some calisthenics like jump rope/push ups and sit ups on my own. 

I know its good to work out on an empty stomach - here's the kicker though - my workouts are at 6am. I have a 19 month old toddler that I am still breastfeeding and since I started her in daycare she wants to nurse all night long. (About 4-6 times and sometimes more.) So my body is not in a metabolic shutdown while I sleep. I am still burning calories and hard at work producing milk (even while I'm asleep). Therefore, I'm usually pretty hungry when I wake up. What would be a good, really easy and quick workout snack that won't be heavy enough to affect my training but just enough to take the edge of my hunger?

what works for me is 1 banana and a couple tablespoons of almond butter. if thats not enough, maybe wash down with 1/2 cup of coconut milk.
