Good morning!

It's Friday again?!?

Where does the time go? It seems to me that we just came out of Easter..!

It's been a great week. I've stayed on track every day, and I feel very different. It's amazing how the little choices make us feel different, isn't it?

I've been sticking to 2000 calories the last few days. This is the lowest I can go without risking my muscle mass. It's not tough to do at all, as long as I put my mind to it.

That's really where it all happens, isn't it? The mind!

I see it very clearly, both for me and my clients. When the mind is determined, results happen.

Right now, I'm determined. Results happen. :)

...

The last few days have been fun, and very productive.

I've talked to LOTS of potential clients, getting the word out about the weight loss company. I've gotten a lot of nice response, and I know I will get more.

I have also talked to the local newspaper about advertising. I should have my very first ad in the paper this coming week, and then 4 weeks on.

Let's see if we get any clients from it, or if it's just a waste of money.

I know that I can help. I know that my methods work. I just hope that people read that into my website and advertising.

...

Today is a fun day, and a day where I'll be out all day.

I'll be working out at the remote gym. I'm getting close to having enough clients to start up classes there, so this is very exciting!

I will also be picking up Wife afterwards for a VERY light lunch.

The reason it's light is that we have dinner plans.

...

I have invited the owner of the gyms out for dinner. We're meeting him and his wife and kid at the running sushi house tonight.

They're super sweet people, and I know this will be a fun evening. It's something we've all been wanting to do for a while, and the day is finally here.

I just wanted to show some appreciation for all that he does for me.

Of course, I have to prep myself for a temporary gain tomorrow. Sushi equals soy sauce equals salt equals massive water retention! :)

I'm ok with it. It's all part of the game.

I have everything planned out, and have made PLENTY of room for PLENTY of sushi. This is the reason that lunch will be light, and that I won't have anything else to eat until dinner.

I will use BCAA's to help my muscle growth post-workout as I always do. There are a lot of different opinions on this - about whether it actually makes a difference or not - but I fell different when I work out in fasted state having the BCAAs/electrolytes in my system.

To me, it works.

It also gives the muscles the aminos that we get from protein post-workout without actually feeding it calories.

...which is another thing I have read many discussions about.

...

Does BCAA contain calories?

It's interesting, really. The Branch Cut Amino Acids are basically what our bodies get from consuming protein, only it's already "cut" for us, so our bodies don't really need to work to break it down.

This gives it the effect of "regular" protein, but with zero calories.

Should we count it as zero? Probably not. To me, it doesn't make sense that a product can be zero calories AND add aminos.

On the other hand, if we don't need to use ANY energy on consuming it, but it is already at absorbation level breakdown, then I suppose it's fair.

I dunno. My head is spinning already. :)

Still, I feel a difference when I work out using it, and it makes a real difference. Also, it hydrates and has an amazing watermelon flavor. What's there not to like?

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Weekend!
- Workout!
- Morning Coffee!
- Sushi tonight with good friends!
- Wife!

Have an awesome weekend! Life is good!

Always remember, that advertising response takes time. People look at the first ad and think... Mmm that's interesting, the second time, they think, I must investigate that, if your lucky, the third time, they respond. Having a small regular advert in the paper (credit card size, or a little bigger if you can) every week, is a really good way to keep your name in front of people. So that when they decide to go for it, they can find you. It could be, that eventually, word of mouth (best form of advertising - but it works both ways - ie if it doesn't work, they will tell people, as well) will be enough. You may be able to negotiate good discounts for a block booking - you MUST negotiate, NEVER pay the initial quote, there's always room for manoeuvre. Plus... You can negotiate for 'add ons'.... A bit like buying a car or house. Will they give you regular free editorial, can you put posters up in their reception area, can they photocopy stuff for you. Could you talk to them about writing a column... Good reader interest for them... Good advertising for you...

Hey let's not try to slow time down yet... I am waiting patiently in excitement for my bump to be a baby I can smother in love. I am glad you are doing so well staying on track. I am up and down on my calories a lot lately. Just depends how tired I am and how much willpower I have that day. Ice cream just feels too good on my throat sometimes with the acid reflux. I am sure once you get going the clients will speak for themselves and you will have so much work you won't have time to eat. :)

Very valid points, Pam - and I am aware that the ads will take time to "sink in". This is a tricky point, because we pay good money and we want to see results! I did negotiate the price, and I do get some extra perks. Unless they say the same to all the advertisers. :)

Iama - I already have "trouble" with my clients talking - it's a good thing that it's all positive talk! :) When is it baby time?

I am due May 29th. I am so ready to have energy again. I go in for a sonogram Wednesday to see how everything is going on in there.

Hi Keld, that is so awesome that you're getting more clients & doing so well, both in your business & in your eating program. Your message needs to be heard by many, & I pray that it helps many to get healthy & strong. I hope your dinner with the gym owner & his family went super well. I admire you for seeing what you want to do & working til it happens. That successful outlook will be seen & imitated by your clients, making them successful in their healthy lifestyle changes, & also making your business very successful. Best wishes to you, & have a happy day.
