08 April 2014

Good morning!

Phew, it was a long, busy day yesterday.

I had clients, classes, walks, worked on my website, and prepped a few things for today too.

It's busy being the King! :)

I did good on my calories, and reasonably good on my macros. Not perfect.

I opted for some easy food choices, and that cost me a little on the fat and protein balance, but overall I did ok.

Looking at averages for 7 and 28 days, I weigh less today - so I am pulling the numbers down nice and slow. I like that. The same goes for every single other number that I register. They are slowly looking better.

All I gotta do is keep going, and thing will be fine.

It will be a long, slow weight loss, and that is perfectly fine with me. I am in no rush. The slower the better anyways.

I really like the level of eating that I have now. I like that I feel that I have "food freedom". I can do what I want, if I'm smart about it. I mean, what's there to NOT like about that?

I eat more food than I have in several years, I eat better (and more fun!) food that I have in a LONG time, and when done right it all points to me losing the weight I want to.

It'll be interesting to see how I am doing on this in a month, when I have had full and proper focus (hopefully!) for enough time to have all my stats adjust fully.

...

Today, I'm working a few hours at the gym. I'll be there at 7 AM, just to help out a bit. I'll be chatting with the users, and hopefully advertise a little bit.

At 10, my boss will come and take over, but first we're gonna have a little meeting about an open house deal that we're gonna do at the OTHER gym, the one at the remote location.

I'm gonna just in with him and do a FULL page advertisement, selling my classes and my services, along with him advertising the gym.

The price is a wee bit steep for a newly opened company, but I do know the importance of advertising. Essentially, I just need a few "bonus" clients to pay for it - and I really need to get the word out about my services.

There are quite a few others that offer weight loss services here, as I am sure there is everywhere else in the world too. I do firmly believe that what I offer is a LOT easier for people, and I know it works. But I probably need to be a little LOUDER than some of the other ones, to attract attention.

That's pretty easy though. I just need good advertising.

All the advertising I see from others is basically in the "personals" section of the papers, right alongside the free kittens and people selling used bicycles.

I never even make it to that section of the newspaper, and I believe that it's more or less pointless to advertise there.

Instead, I'll be having a half page all to myself, an ad that is loud and clear, that sells me, my classes, my coaching, and ask the question (slightly modified) "When is the last time you're gonna lose weight?".

It will have my logo and website, and let people know where to meet me in person for a talk about it.

The trick is to make it uncluttered, with as much info as possible, without losing the message. I'll be working on that today. Shouldn't be too hard.

...

The classes yesterday were amazing! So many people are there, both the classes are FULLY booked, and I love that.

Several people started last week, and they were SHOCKED how much weight they lost this first week. These are people who have "tried everything", just like the rest of us, and they just couldn't believe that they lost weight, and that they didn't feel that they were even trying. THIS is what I love about losing weight this way.

I will be looking into doing a 3rd class now, selling more tickets and getting more business.

...

So, in a few minutes I'm gonna go walk.

I'm not sure I really need to, but I feel that I want to. My body is asking me kindly to go walk, and I am going to do what I am told.

I'm tired and I hope it'll wake me up to go out in the fresh air.

I slept really bad - too much coffee yesterday at the classes - so I have been tossing and turning all night. Not good, especially not if I am going to be nice and charming at the gym. :)

It's been raining all night, and it still is, but it looks like it's slowing down and that I won't get all too wet. I hope I'm right.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Wife!
- Great focus on my food and weight!
- Working the gym today!
- Successful classes!
- Morning coffee!

Have an amazing day, everyone! Life is good!

Good morning!

Weight today is up, but average weight is down! This is essentially where I should be - though it doesn't feel like it.

As always, I'm not a fan of my weight going up, but I do understand that it has to be like that many days. That is the downside to daily weigh-ins.

However, I understand the workings "behind the curtain", and it's all good.

I do see that I probably don't have all of the calorie burn that the fitbit is granting me. I think it over-reads it, or I don't register all my food correctly, and I do need to adjust that. I should have lost more weight by now, had the numbers been correct.

So, I will simply implement a factor on my calorie burn, and basically try to find out where the correct level is.

Instead of me getting 100% of the calorie burn that the fitbit says I have, I will go for 80%. It will simply nudge down my calorie allowance over time, and hopefully I'll land in a more realistic place.

Of course, this sucks because I will have fewer calories allowed. :)

Meh, it's all good.

What IS important is that I find the right level eventually. It's important to all that I am doing that I am getting these numbers worked out. Without it, it's a LOT harder for me to use my system, and for me to be able to fully use (and abuse) it.

...

The weekend was great, except for the band rehearsal. We were supposed to have a visit from a future singer. He was a no-show, with a lame excuse. I guess he won't be the one.

It was such a shame, because I think he had potential, and we could have learned a lot from him and vice versa. But if he can't even show up for an audition, then I can't really see any kind of commitment from him in the future either.

I guess we'll keep looking.

At least we came up with a lot of stuff for a new song instead. Time is never wasted. :)

...

Today, I'll be teaching. I have my classes tonight, and a client in the afternoon.

Other than that, I'll be doing my walk, my workout and I will be working on my website.

Daughter is actually supposed to do the website. She's lightyears ahead of me doing stuff like that, but she just doesn't get around to it. I've asked her numerous times, but it doesn't seem to happen much.

I know she's busy at work too, but I can't keep waiting. It's a matter of my future income, and I need to have all this ready in about a week or two, when my new work clothes with website address is arriving. I can't advertise, and then have an "under construction" thing waiting for my clients. Hell no.

So, I'm looking at wordpress today. I hope I can make the website and export it to my own server. I'm not sure how this works just yet, but I think it can be done. This is what I will spend my time on.

...

Food wise, I'm in a good place today. Everything is planned, as always, and I will hit all my numbers perfectly.

...

Not really a whole lot to write today, my head is WAY elsewhere, getting the business ready.

...

I do apologize for not being here a whole lot these days - there is so much going on and so much to do. I'm trying to keep up. :)

...

Today I'm thankful for:
- Work!
- Staying busy!
- Staying on track, even if I need to adjust!
- Wife!
- Morning coffee!

Life is good!

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!
