    I actually think it’s good to workout before dinner. Your metabolism will be nice and speedy when you eat, and you’re less likely to overeat. 

    My big problem comes in when I get home at 9:30 or so. I’m usually famished, and end up having some of my dinner before my workout, which is stupid. I end up with less energy and motivation. But otherwise I’m running on empty!

    Kudos to you for waking up early in the morning to work out—even if it was short-term!  If the timing works for you, I’d stick with it.  Don’t worry about eating back the calories you just burned—you still gotta eat dinner sometime. : )  I usually go after dinner, sometimes pretty late.  It can be tricky, because once my tummy’s happy from dinner and I start feeling a little drowsy, it’s tough to get motivated to go.  But I’d be too hungry to work out before dinner!
