Balancing Work and Training

Thanks for stopping by my blog to check up on my progress :)
Since I've started training more clients now that I'm working full time at the gym I have completely changed my workout schedules.. Instead of doing longer weight training sessions followed by cardio I'm training for shorter durations, in between clients and doing short bursts of cardio. Clearly this has shocked my body because my bodyfat is starting to drop! My diet's also changed quite dramatically. I am taking in a lot more protein (especially shakes, since it's easy to make a paper funnel and mix up a shake in my water bottle whenever i'm in a rush) and my carb intake is a LOT higher... I'm finding that with only 2-3 carb meals a day I just dont have energy and my muscles start to look soft and run down.. lol :( So i have added in more fruits & complex carbs and kept my fat intake around the same.
When I first started training several times a day, I guess that along with being at work all day and feeling pumped and energetic, my brain was not able to calm down at night so I experienced some insane insomnia for a few days; but luckily now, everything is back to normal :) My body has adapted to my new lifestyle and my mind is at ease, so I'm getting better sleep.

In terms of rest days, I just haven't felt like taking ANY rest days for almost 3 weeks now.. hahaha.. hey, all i can do is LISTEN TO MY BODY!!! My training has also gotten to a whole other level in terms of intensity. My heart is SO much stronger now. My cardio endurance is through the roof!!!! It also helps that pretty much all the other trainers at my gym are doing 2-3 workouts a day and training EXTREME, so it motivates me a LOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So far so good... my weights dropping too (I wasn't really concerned with this but hey, I don't mind). I'm at 145-150lbs now and my abs are coming in nicely! Just in time for sports bra season ;) and then, BIKINI TIME!!!!!!!!!!  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alright, that's all for now, but stay tuned for more updates as my shredding journey continues! I'll be posting another journal entry to update you all on my diet and training changes:)
