Good morning!

It looks like the plan is working, to NOBODY's surprise! Cut down the calories, make some better choices, and excess fluid and fat will come off you nice and easy.

Who knew? Right? Oh... WE did! :)

...

I feel GREAT this morning. I had a decent night's sleep, and I am ready to take on the world today.

I have everything lined up for a pretty busy and active day:

- Walking my usual 5K
- Workout at the gym
- Bits and bobs through the day
- Working at the gym tonight.

It's gonna be a good day.

...

All meals are pre-planned, and I know exactly what I'll be consuming through the day. I have planned to have room for a few snacks if I need them, and made sure all my macros are met.

...

Yesterday was a fun day. I had a great talk with a couple of clients, and they are moving forward just as expecting.

One hit the 10 kilo mark after just a handful of weeks! This is simply amazing. The best thing is that she doesn't even feel like she's dieting. Every time I see her, she just looks happier and happier. I love doing this to people. :)

...

We're getting the last few things lined up for the health convention this coming Saturday.

I'm so curious to see how many people actually go there. I have absolutely no clue how it's gonna be. I have a feeling that it won't be all that many - it's "only" about health, after all, and won't compare to a commercial convention - but I could easily be wrong.

...

I'm hoping that I get to start up new classes at the remote gym soon. I just need 2 or 3 more signups, then we're off! Hopefully we'll get those people when we do open house there in a couple of weeks.

...

I lowered my own RDI a little yesterday, and I'm gonna stick to it for a little while. It's not hard to do, it's just a matter of manning up.

Mostly, it's about knowing your demons, I think.

All my demons are carb related.

The way IIFYM - my diet approach - works, there are set numbers for my protein and fat intake, and an upper limit to calories. The rest will simply be carbs.

If I decide to lower my calorie intake, it can ONLY be lowered in carbs. The protein/fat requirements still have to be met. This is essential for muscle building and general body maintenance.

So, by lowering my RDI, I am lowering my carb intake ONLY. This makes it harder for me to get in too deep, as I can't really allow myself a "little something" when I don't really need it.

This is the tough part of having an all-or-nothing mentality.

I see that I will probably ALWAYS be like this. I will ALWAYS either be relaxing too much on my diet, and thus gain weight, or I will have to be strict to get back to where I want to be.

I can live with that. I know what to do when it gets too much, and I know what damage I do when I lean back too far.

...

It's such a nice feeling to STILL feel my grip getting better on everything around me. Life, work, diet, weight, strength - EVERYTHING!

All I need now are MORE clients. :) They'll come.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- The feeling of being on track.
- Positive attitude.
- Morning coffee!
- Gym and more gym today.
- Wife! Too bad I don't get to see her too much today.

Have an awesome Wednesday, everyone! Life is good!

Great job, Keld. I like the plan for the IIFYM RDI. Will be adjusting mine very soon based on an overindulgence at Easter.
