Call me crazy, but my body NEEDS 10 hours of sleep. That being said, I don't always get it and usually catch up on the weekends. Except in times of extreme lack of sleep, I've never noticed a few hours missed affecting my workout. In fact, I used to workout first thing in the morning on 6-7 hours sleep and had some of my best workouts. I find that warming up is most important for performance first thing upon waking up.
I swear by my Lululemon The Mat. It's a bit pricey at $68, but considering the cost per use, it's worth every penny. I never slide on it no matter how sweaty my palms and feet get. And it's thick and cushy enough to keep my spine and hips from bruising. It's a little heavy to lug around, but I just put a strap on it to make it easier to carry. After months of frustration on a cheap mat, I rationalized my purchase by realizing that not upgrading my mat was hurting my practice. No regrets!
I eat a granola bar at least 30 minutes before a morning workout and then a small breakfast with protein and a banana no later than 30 minutes post-workout.
Wildwood SprouTofu High Protein Super Firm Tofu. It has a super dense texture--not like regular firm tofu. I find it at Fresh & Easy.
