kingkeld's Journal, 08 January 2013

Good morning!

As so often before these days, I am up early. Not crazy early like sometimes, but early. It's 3:21 AM, and I'm supposed to be up in 40 minutes or so.

I've been up for about 20 minutes, awake for about an hour.

It's interesting. Lately, when I wake up early, I will argue with myself to get my butt on the exercise bike, and move. Today was the opposite. I was so keen on going, but talked myself out of it. Today is recovery day, and I do want to respect that. I've had two days at the gym, so today is recovery before going again tomorrow.

I think I'm gonna shoot for 4 weekly visits to the gym. I like it there so far, and I hope it can keep my interest peaked. If I am interested, I'll go - it's so much easier when I don't have to convince myself to go. It's right around the corner, doesn't take long and it's a nice place. Not really much reason to NOT go, right? There's even a free cup of coffee. :)

Today, I am down 300 gram. That's pretty good. Not a crazy loss like I have seen now and then lately, but a reasonable loss considering I am on a Tuesday after an Indulgence Day. More will come over the week - I am sure of that.

Yesterday I was kinda peckish all day, but I did fine resisting it. I had a large bowl of soup for lunch, and that filled me up. I put lots of chili sauce in there. I find that hot foods fill me up longer. They satisfy me in a different way, and I use that to my advantage, especially when I am hungry.

Dinner was roasted chicken and veggies. Very nice.

Today will be a reasonably quiet day at work again. I have two interviews to attend to, and a little bit of paper work. Not too bad, but enough to keep me occupied through the day without being too bored.

After work I'm going rocking with the kids. I wonder how many will show up. It's been a VERY quiet team this year.

I'm seriously considering shutting down that class. It's really fun to do, and good money. However, there are so few students on it, it really seems like a waste to go and do it.

If I can spend the time on teaching weight loss, then I think I'd rather do that. I could use some more experience doing it, and I think it'd be a much more "popular" class. I think I can draw more people - who will actually pay out of their own pockets - to go do that class.

I have looked further into teaching, setting up a company etc. If I have less than 19 clients in classes through the year, then I can do it as a private person, and just pay tax on it. This might pay off for me for now. If I do register as a company, then I will get some tax benefits, but I will also have to pay a ton of fees. I gotta work out if this is at all something that will pay off for me. Let's see. There are still a lot of details I gotta work out.

If I have time, I will look at making some advertisements for my class, and see where that takes me.

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Waking up early, feeling awake, strong, lighter. It's a great feeling.
- Morning coffee.
- Spending my early morning with Kitty Cat. Snuggled up next to me. :)

Life is good!

HA, I said , man your too white, he is the best bass player around, besides, umm Kingkeld! HA.

Rockytu - sounds like life is good for you too. It's nice to have a free cup of joe and a chit chat with the owner after gym. I kinda like to have a social aspect in it (and I need to be a buttkisser to ease my business into the place. lol.).

Advertising your class sounds like a good idea.... ESPECIALLY at this time of year - but it's a small window, if you are going to soit, now is the time. Glad you are enjoying the new gym.... As rockytu says - free coffee! Wow.

I agree with Pam, starting the class fairly soon is a good idea with all these new years resolutions. But, I can only imagine all the details that go into it to do it the right way - i.e. taxes and all that garbage. It's too bad you can't just take cash and keep it haha. Nice job on the gym, glad you are enjoying it so far!!

It is hard to find a good gym. I remember the old days when there were no ear buds and people actually spoke to one another and introduced themselves. It was so much nicer then. Oh well. Glad you will have an excuse to socialize with teaching the class. Hope that works out for you. Hope your day is happy and healthy!

Hi Keld, Fabulous news about the possibility of taking your healthy lifestyle class further. It is amazing to see how things turn out. You were always heading in that direction when you talked about a book many moons ago, this seems along the same lines but more hands on for you, I think you like the personal contact with people. I am excited about this venture of yours and look forward to seeing it evolve. Glad you are enjoying the gym, i must try and get back to the swimming and walking. I dont feel so put off now the weather is improving a little. Much love to you an your family Sazy xx
