Good morning!

It's another morning with no weight loss or gain. Status quo is always better than going the wrong way, right?

I did great yesterday - had the max calorie deficit that my body can handle, and burned a whopping 3600 calories.

I see my calorie burns going much higher than they used to. I wonder if this is from me being slightly heavier, or me actually being more active again? It doesn't really matter - a burn is a burn, right? :)

...

Yesterday was fun. I had a couple of GREAT classes, they are a gang of super lively people, there was a LOT of great dialogue across the table, and so much sharing. People were laughing, to the point where this skinny lady came up to me after the classes telling me (jokingly) that she heard us and was considering joining the class just to have fun with us. I say mission accomplished on creating good vibes. :)

...

I got an email yesterday that my promotional banners have been printed and are in the mail! If I'm SUPER lucky they'll be in the mail today! ...more likely tomorrow, but let's keep our fingers crossed.

Thursday and Friday (and Monday) are holidays here in Denmark, so it would be SO cool to have them before the Easter break. I'd love to have them here for inspiration, and maybe to get permission to install them somewhere when they're not in use by me.

There is so much going on right now. I had another potential client calling me yesterday, and I am meeting with her today. I hope she'll sign up and I will have another one in my roster.

This one is interesting in a different way. She has lost quite a bit of weight already, but has trouble with the last kilos. I'm thinking that she might need to focus way more on training. Maybe IIFYM would be a good solution for her? I can't wait to talk with her.

...

I'm also gonna spend the morning going over a newspaper ad that I am running with they gym. We got the first draft, and in my eyes it needs a complete do-over.

It's a nice and pretty ad, but ALL the focus seems to be on the gym. None worth mentioning is on me.

I'm sure this is the publisher that misunderstood the task.

To me, it's pretty clear: I'm paying half the ad. I get half the exposure. Not just a "Come meet Keld at the gym and have a chat about weight loss".

I want my logo on there, and a clear message that says that I do MUCH more than just run a class at the newly opened gym. I need to make people aware of me, and give them my contact info, so they can check out my programs, my prices, call me, etc.

High priority! If I am going to spend money advertising, we need people to see it! :)

...

So, today will mostly be those meetings. I do have a client late afternoon over Skype also. She's doing amazingly well. She completely gets the concept, and she's just constantly pushing forward. I love seeing that!

...

In a few minutes, I'm gonna go for my walk. I don't really need it all that much - it doesn't really create a large calorie deficit that I couldn't just do from lowering my intake, but I quite enjoy the walk these days. I like being out there, listening to music.

I put the audio books on hold for now. I can't keep my mind quiet enough to really listen to them. I'm prepping company stuff while I walk, trying to situate myself optimally in my mind. Music is a way better companion right now.

...

It's interesting to see how much my mindset has changed since all the trouble at my old job started. There was so much crap, and I am so happy I'm out of it. Life hasn't been this good to me in quite a while. I'm feeling stress free, confident and happy. I do what I'm great at, and I love doing it. I love seeing the results that my clients accomplish.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Wife! I'm looking forward to seeing her tonight, and spending time together!
- Work! Being my own boss ROCKS!
- Going to the gym to meet a new client in a few hours.
- Walking. Clearing my head.

Have a great day! Life is good!

This all sounds like so much fun! Helping those folks with the last few kilos will be where your expertise will really come into play... IIFYM, etc. Good luck!

What an absolutely delightful,positive journal.... Your new venture sounds so exciting and I can feel how much you are enjoying it. Your clients are soooooo lucky, to have someone who is so enthused and excited about their individual weightloss journey. Yes.... You must get 50% exposure... After all... Why do people attend a gym... To get healthy AND loose weight.
