15 minutes or more moderate to intense cardio before breakfast (this will up your metabolism for a few hours, reducing lethargy and increasing calory burn).
This should make the world of difference. If you can fit some in at lunch time occasionally that would be good too. Workout as normal in the evenings.
Meals can/should be small during the day if you're totally inactive (but still regular)
