My stomach screams at me first thing or if I work out without having eaten something substantial an hour or two before, I do some basic stretches and pushups, situps in the morning to get rid of that post wakeup stiffness
But I just apreciate the quality of sleep I get from crashing a couple of hours after a workout, I wouldn't give that up for the world.

I find my ideal time of the day is around ten in the morning, after I've been up for a few hours. I work a 4 on 4 off shift, so I get to train at that time a few days a week. If I'm working an outage (12 hour shifts, 7 days a week), I'll train around 7:30 pm. Although I'm a little tired, it's much better, in my opinion, than training at 4:00 am before work. I've done it both ways, and I just can't get focused in the morning.

The morning is the only way to go for me... The gym is packed most of the time, but NEVER at 06 when I show up. The wife and I roll out of bed around 5:45, throw down a carb-rich whey protein shake with some water and hit the gym. Ok, we get there about 6, crank up some good music and get a good stretch going to warm up (by this point we have been awake about 1/2hour and the shake is doing its work... ENERGY.
Booom..... Hit the weights hard for an hour to an hour ... post workout whey protein shake... Head for home... grab a shower...
Put the oatmeal on the stove, shower up... ,now I am really feeling alive,
and sit down to devour some good oatmeal and a bunch of eggs with some turkey pastrami (better than bacon & 95% fat free.)
Get to work..... EAT ALL DAY LONG every 3 hours... Go to bed at 10 after a casien rich protein shake! I love it!

I recently switched from 5pm workouts to 6am workouts... I found my "usual" weights hard at first because I couldn't wake up... cardio was better though because I felt fresher... I hadn't been on my feet all day.
I think altering your eating & sleeping habits has a lot to do with it.
The human body just gets used to whatever situation you put it in... I would guess your nervous system would respond eventually.

I wake up at 5 am so I can eat and have a chance for the food to digest by the time I get to the gym at 6:30am. If I wait until after work I'm too beat and I don't want to do anything.I don't know either lol
