Good morning!

Just a quick check-in and weigh-in today.

It's Saturday, Wife and I are enjoying a couple of tv-shows at 7 AM, while I wait for a walking buddy to give me a call, then we're gonna go walk, go for our little Saturday buffet, and the a nice, relaxing day.

...

Weight is down, by quite a bit, and I feel really good today.

...

We had a fun day yesterday. Macros went out the window, but calories didn't.

It was a day that ended up busier than I had expected, I ended up just short of 30,000 steps, and a whopping 4200 calories burned.

I only had dinner yesterday. I just didn't get around to having lunch until it was dinner time, so that was it. We had a HUGE portion of ribs (with one tiny potato, just to make sure I eat my veggies!), and then ice cream for dessert.

It was a fun, busy day.

...

Today is our usual, relaxed Saturday.

I'll be going for a nice, long walk when my buddy calls me, and then spend the rest of the day with Wife.

Dinner is the King's home made Whole Wheat Lasagna. I will be looking forward to it! :)

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Weekend!
- Working on the company!
- Wife!
- Morning Coffee!
- Sleeping (relatively) late!

Have a great weekend, everyone! life is good!

Good morning!

Sorry, I didn't make it to the Fatsecret page yesterday. I was busy with life outside, and busy doing my business.

It was a superb day!

First of all, I had two clients starting up - and both are off to a great start. I know I can help them both, and I know they'll do great! :)

I've had quite a few people contacting me about weight loss coaching, both from my local area but certainly also from the Fatsecret gang.

There is still room for more, and I would love to help more people from here. If you're interested - or know of someone who is - you're always welcome to inbox me.

I find it so AWESOME that I can actually help out people from all over the world, focused and efficiently, simpy using skype. Location is simply not an issue.

I've had skype for ages, but never really used it much. Not more than an occasional meeting with a friend in another part of the world, or with family at christmas.

Here, there is a clear and great purpose to it. And I just can't believe that it's free to use!

Did you know that it was a fellow countryman - a Dane - who developed it? :)

...

The weight is status quo, if we look one week back. No real change. And then, there is.

This week is the first week in a long time where I feel relaxed and stress free. I absolutely LOVE what I'm doing right now, building business, helping clients getting going, and working out.

I have followed my numbers and calculations perfectly, and I know this will give me a reward in the end. It's just not there yet. Numbers have been askew for a while, dealing with the stress, and I can tell that there is a very clear change in things. However, there is still things like fluid build-up and such.

Something interesting is to be found in my numbers today, though, and I like it. My bodyfat percentage is slightly lower than it has been - 17% - and my muscle mass is up to 73 kilos. At the same time, my water is down to 59%, and it's VERY rare to see it less than 61-61%.

Basically, water is DOWN and muscle is UP. This means more "pure" muscle. That is the development I want, along with lowering the body fat, obviously.

This can explain that I am heavier in general, and that I don't see the huge weight change. I won't be fooled though - it's not ALL muscle mass. There is quite some improvement that can be done, and I'm doing it - nice and slow. I see it, I feel it. I just to be able to record it too. :)

Of course the fact that I had pizza and a HUGE portion of low calorie ice cream yesterday also plays a part in today's weigh-in. :)

Both were just fine with my calorie/macros allowance, but they do weigh me down. Doesn't matter. I enjoyed it fully, and there is zero damage. Oh, how I love this way of eating. :)

...

Today, I'm gonna go work out at the remote location gym. I'll probably be talking to some (hopefully) future clients, and just enjoy it there.

Then, as it has become a Friday tradition, I will go pick up Wife and invite her out for lunch. We're probably gonna go with the Shish Kebab house that we've gone to lately. They have the BEST Shawarmas. Love it!

...

I'm hoping to hear from more people interested in individual coaching too. I can see that I can clearly help people here, and I can see that there are many that need help. This line of "work" is just amazing for me. I think for the first time in my life, I see that it's NOT really work - it's me doing something good for others, and me getting to make this my bread. No butter, please! :)

Last week, I found this very interesting video on TED. Today I am actually LIVING it. How amazing is THAT?



The first few seconds is in Polish, but don't let that scare you away. The rest is in English, and a truly powerful message.

...

I can't wait to get more clients. I can't wait to build my business. I can't wait for the day where this is what I do all day. It's go fun, so giving, and I just love talking to people, and seeing their excitement starting up and getting results.

...

I probably have to start a new weight loss class. I have so many people waiting, I will have to see if I can start an extra class, and get more people going. Phew. I like that I no longer have my old job to worry about. I love that I can now just go ahead and do it, and not have to worry about having the time and energy for it. I DO have the time. I DO have the energy.

I hope to meet with my gym boss today, and I will talk to him about it.

...

Today, I'm thankful for SO MANY THING!
- Wife, for being amazing!
- TABDIG, my company, for building faster than I thought I could.
- My new clients! Everyone are such great persons! I can't wait to work with you guys!
- Morning coffee!
- The morning walk that I will do today, as I didn't move enough yesterday.
- Kitty Cat for snuggling up in my lap as I am typing this.
- Working out in a couple of hours.

Have a great weekend, everyone! Life is good!

Good morning!

It's good to be the king!

I had a great day yesterday - been prepping bits and bobs for the new company - and it seems like there is some interest in what I'm doing.

I put three(!) people on my waiting list for my classes, and set up a two month schedule with a lady for individual weight loss coaching. Very nice!

I also have a couple of other people going, and it looks like there might come more today.

Hopefully this is only the beginning! We'll see...

...

Today, I'm gonna call people from my waiting list to get the started up from this coming Monday, to get the ball rolling even more.

I'll be working at the gym, so it will be a little bit off and on in regards to this, but I think I can squeeze in a few calls here and there and get everything going.

...

My weight? It's the same. Actually, I'm about as average as I can get today. I have my spreadsheets calculate the average of the last week to fill out my numbers if I skip a day - I figured that this would be somewhere around the correct number anyways - and today I was within one decimal from all the numbers, except the weight. Predictions are pretty precise, it seems!

Not much in terms of weight loss, though, but I am confident that it'll show. I'm doing good and doing what I'm supposed to, and that is all it takes. I'm 100% on top of it, and it's a great feeling.

...

So, today I'm leaving from home early. I want to do my workout before I open the gym, so I have peace and quiet to do it, uninterrupted.

My boss at the gym is okay with me working out during work hours, but I don't like doing it. Knowing that a customer might need help and thus make me have to stop bothers me. I just want to go and do my thing, and THEN work.

Besides, I have a little mission today. When I work out, I see a LOT of people doing a few of the machines/exercises wrong. I always want to correct them, but since it's while I am working out, I don't want to stop.

I think today I will spend some time in "the circle", as our group of machines are called, and help people get everything right. It'll be fun, and it makes time fly by fast. :)

...

So, tomorrow I am meeting with two new clients. I can't wait! I love doing these individual runs, as they are a lot more personal. It's always interesting to meet new people and to see them push forward. Love it!

...

Like I said, I'm out of the door early this morning. I really want to walk a little before hitting the gym - get all my numbers right for the day - and I know I don't always take enough steps when I am at the gym working. So I want to walk a little detour this morning to get a few extra in.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Wife!
- Back to work at the gym! I haven't been there in AGES!
- Morning coffee!

Have a great Wednesday! Life is good!

01 April 2014

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!
