Good morning!

It was a GREAT day yesterday.

I had my little launch of my own company - and I'm up and running!

I had interest from several people, mostly for my classes, but also inquiries in regards to one-on-one weight loss coaching. Not bad for a first day.

I went back to teaching too. It was awesome to see all the familiar faces from my two classes, plus I got three new clients going. I think they'll do okay - they're motivated and they are doing it together. This is ALWAYS a good idea, keep each other going, and keep each other motivated.

My clients were happy to see me, and we just had a great time. I told them a bit about how things had been, the changes, the new company, all that.

We talked about - of course - how THEY were, how they were doing on their weight loss, and why... some had done just fine, some had gained weight - just like we see it here on FS. Once you let go of the grip that can help you stay on the right track, it gets a lot harder.

I'm happy that I am there to help.

Through the week I'll be calling more people from my waiting list, getting more signed up for next week. I want my classes full, both to get optimal advantage for everyone, but of course also for financial reasons. It IS a business too, after all. :)

....

I did GREAT yesterday. There is a HUGE difference in activity levels when I teach. It was very clear yesterday. I burned a whopping 3400 calories, with no real effort. Usually, that takes quite a lot, but it helps when I'm standing and moving about - even if it isn't at all high intensity - for several extra hours.

My calorie intake was on the low side, as was my protein. Not by much, just a tad. I'm sure it's fine.

The upside to that is that I can allow myself a little more today. I prefer to just add the numbers in my spreadsheet, and take the 40+ bonus calories, instead of eating back in an extra 1000 and end at status quo. Sounds like a better deal long term.

Besides, I won't need the extra calories. Not today, anyways.

...

Today, I don't have a whole lot of plans. I'm meeting with an online client later in the day, and that's about all.

I'm gonna have to ensure that I'll be at least somewhat active, or I'll just end up sitting at home all day.

I'm sleepy. I stayed up WAY too late - until 11:30 PM - yesterday, and I was still up at 3:30 AM with Wife this morning. Not much sleep.

Wife was so sweet to buy my a data storage/media center for all my movies and files, so we can stream everything from any gadget imaginable (once it's all set up and workin).

I had a hard time getting it to run through our blu-ray player, and this meant that we couldn't watch anything from the drive on the television, which obviously is top priority for such a thing.

I got hard headed and didn't go to bed until it was working. That was probably a bad move. :)

Then again, I'll take a nap if I am TOO sleepy. It'll be all right.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- An early morning walk in a few minutes.
- Morning coffee. First here at home, then at the gym after my walk. No workout though, just coffee.
- Wife, for being the sweetest! Love you, babe!
- A thoroughly great day yesterday!

Life is good!

Hi there, everyone!

Phew. It's been a crazy hectic week (last week) and a busy weekend.

I'm kinda glad things are back to normal - and yet they are not at ALL back to normal.

Today, I'm officially opening my company. I'm opening "TABDIG" (Danish, for "Lose weight"), weight loss classes, coaching, support, weigh-ins for those who are locals, and more!

It's an exciting time, and I can't wait to truly get going.

There are still things that has to be set up, and there is no physical store to open doors in, but that just might come - you'll never know.

I like the idea of NOT having a physical store - Take in clients from all over Denmark - and even the rest of the world - via Skype. People can get support from the comfort of their own home, if needed.

I now have a few clients using skype already, and it works perfect. There is absolutely nothing tricky about doing it, and everyone can figure it out.

...

My weight is unchanged. It's the same few kilos going up and down. I'm fine with that.

Sure, I'd like for it to come down a little, but it really is no big deal. I'm healthy and comfortable where I am, and I am stronger than ever before, which is where my focus is right now. Building muscle.

I do want to lean out a bit, but it's probably generally not the best time to do it. I eat right, though, and have done for a while now. The weight has been higher, too, so there is some weight loss going on.

Again, I am in no hurry - I have other things to focus on right now. Workout, business, etc.

Of course, weight maintenance is important for my business. I need - and want - to look my best in order to sell my product. I am the best advertisement I can possibly get, so I have to look good.

...

I slept late again today, and I feel absolutely great. I did my workout, and I will definitely be reaching my 10,000 steps today, no question about it.

Wife is home from work in about an hour, and at 4:30 pm I'm gonna have a couple of happy reunions with the people in my classes. I start teaching today, and I am just dying to go! I can't wait to see everyone!

It's been way too long that I haven't been able to do the things I love doing. I'm happy that time is over and that I can now move forward.

...

My website - www.tabdig.info - is being built. Right now, there is a huge "under construction" sign on it, but as features and pages are slowly implemented, this will disappear. The plan is that sometime this week or next week, it will be fully funtional.

Daughter designed it - and I think it looks amazing! I like the style a lot.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Wife!
- Freedom!
- My own business!
- CLIENTS! :) They are slowly emerging!

Have an awesome day in an awesome week! Life is good!

Good morning!

So the Fat Loss Evil Demons decided to have me gain a kilo today. Sure, why not?

I did good, though. I was at an 1100 calorie deficit yesterday, with all macros requirements met, so I'm not sure what that's all about?

Maybe it's the ridiculous amount of meat I had for dinner? I don't know.

It doesn't really matter, though. I know that I did good. Everything is under control, and it's just a matter of moving forward. Which I am.

...

Yesterday was great.

I woke up late, slept a few extra hours on purpose, and when I got up, I decided to go work out at the other gym, about 80 minutes bus ride away. I only had a few minutes to get going, so it was all kinda rushed.

I made it on time, though, and I had a great workout there, talked to the owner, talked to some of the people there and got to do a little advertising for my new company and hopefully got to spread the word about my classes a little bit.

While working out, a text came in from Wife. "Mind if I take you out for dinner tonight?". Why, no, of course I don't. As long as I know where we're going so I can prepare. Fortunately this was still in the morning and I hadn't had any food, so I could easily adjust my plans and make it all work out.

As I said, all weightloss/calorie/macro criteria were met at the end of the day.

Dinner ended up being a ridiculous amount of VERY deliscious BBQ ribs, and one tiny potato. Meat, meat, meat.

Have I mentioned that I LOVE eating like this? :)

...

Things are REALLY clearing up in regards to my leaving my old job.

The details on everything are cranked out, and I will go sign papers today. I have some nice pay checks coming the next coming months.

This month (payout Monday, the March payout) will be a regular one. Then, end of April will see an almost double pay because of vacation compensation being paid out. Since I have been on long term sick leave, I haven't been able to take my vacation time, and this is paid out. I have 4-5 weeks sitting there waiting, to be paid out.

Then the May payout will be a normal one, and the June one - the final one - will also see the compensation for tort. This will be somewhere between double and triple pay. Not bad.

The very best thing is that I can no FINALLY start teaching, and FINALLY start working on my own thing. I can do what I want.

...

Today, I will go talk to the gym owner again. We're prepping an "open house" thing at the new gym - the one further away. I want to be in on the advertising there, hoping to get some clients to join so I can start up my weight loss classes there.

I will also call a lot of people from my waiting list for the local classes. I want to get everything started up ASAP. It's been idle for WAY too long.

Today is GO!

...

I will probably spend a little of the day building a small, temporary website. I have asked Daughter (since she is a graphics/web designer) to do a proper one, but I also know she's a busy lady. I will make a temporary one, just for the time being.

Also, I'm gonna talk to a good friend who has a printing business about getting some t-shirts printed with my website and slogan. I'm gonna be my own poster 24/7. I don't think there is a much better way to advertise.

I've been thinking long and hard about slogans, and I really like the one I have come up with.

"When is it gonna be the last time that you're gonna lose weight?".


I'm hoping it will make people think. I'm hoping that it will make people realize that by going with me and my system, they will be equipped to make it the final weight loss journey.

What do you think?

...

So, today I have plenty to do.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- A good night's sleep, though I'm up early with Wife. I don't want to get into the habit of sleeping later than her. I like our mornings, it's when we get to see more of each other these days.
- Coffee!
- Freedom! I can finally start up my business!

Have a great Thursday! Life is good!
