You Skip Oatmeal

Many women skip out on breakfast before their morning workout to either save calories or to prevent digestive upset. It's one of the worst things you can do, because eating first thing not only boosts your metabolism, but it also gives you energy to get through your solid calorie-burning workout. Without the proper fuel, you will end up with a headache or dizzy spell and are more likely to not push yourself as hard, or worse — to throw in the towel before your workout is complete.

Since devouring an enormous plate of scrambled eggs, bacon, pancakes, and hash browns is also a bad idea, fuel your workout with something small that contains easily digestible carbs and protein (like these pre-workout snacks).
