Niyaah for observing the fast:
وَبِصَوْمِ غَدٍ نَّوَيْتَ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَا
Wa bisawmi ghadinn nawaiytu min shahri ramadan
(I intend to keep the fast today in the month of Ramadan)
Niyaah for breaking the fast:
اللَّهُمَّ اِنِّى لَكَ صُمْتُ وَبِكَ امنْتُ وَ عَلى رِزْقِكَ اَفْطَرْتُ
Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu wa 'ala rizq-ika aftarthu
(O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You and I break my fast with Your sustenance)
You can make the niyaat before beginning to fast (for example, right before Fajr adhaan). Even if you forget to make the niyaat verbally, it's sufficient to have the niyaat in your heart. The fact that you woke up and ate the sehri means that you had the niyaat to fast and that counts as niyaat, even if you forget to verbally say the niyaat.
For breaking the fast, you should say it right before beginning to eat.
