    Working and Training

    How does everyone cope with working 5 days a week, training hard and eating propley, does everyone make sure you get time to work out and eat.

    im working about40 hours a week at a steakhouse right now cooking in between 85-95 degree heat at some points...its very difficult but i wake up extra early to hit the gym. I have 1 meal before the gym.. a shake after...i pick up 2 met rx meal replacement bars prior to work and eat them during my 8 hour shift. at the same time stealing chicken breasts and steaks when i can and eating them. i then come home and eat/slam down another protien shake. Its hard as balls but in all honosty the 8 hour cardio sessions have made me shed 4% of my bodyfat in a little over a month.

    That's what I love about being a trainer. I am around what I love to do 24/7.

    My father once told me, "Find something you love to do, and you'll never work a day in your life".

    He was absolutely correct.

    If you are fortunate enough to be able to be in school and live until you find your "dream" job, I say go for it. I realize that's not always possible, as I too worked for colleges/publishing companies for tests in California, etc., and I got paid well, but I was never TRULY happy. I used to think money was the answer, now I realize that it answers nothing when it comes to being happy "inside". Paying the bills and being happy are really two entirely different things. I wish you luck in success of both.

    I work in the IT department (computer geek) and put in about 50 hours week on an average week. I also own my own company and trying to get it off the ground which is now about 30 hour a week so I don't have a lot of time. I get up extra early and do cardio and do quite a few workouts a week using my home gym & free weights. (Luckily I work from home too) This way if I have a free hour I go upstairs and start lifting. Its nearly impossible for me to lift the same time every day but worst case scenario I lift before going to bed. As long as I'm not sick I lift 5 days a week.

    With regards to food, I have protein bars and shakes ready in case I don't have time for a full meal. I keep some meal replacment in my desk so I don't have an excuse to not eat. I make my own jerky in my food dehydrator and keep bags of that around too. I use my Foreman Grill (actually Hamiltom Beach brand) and can cook up a chicken breast or burger in less than 5 minutes if I just have a short time to get away. I have salads premade in containers so I can grab them quick and also buy a lot of veggies at the grocery store and when I get home I vaccum pack them and put some in ziplock bags, that way they are already washed and cut up so that I just grab a bag and don't have to mess around with it.
