I do appreciate all your suggestions. My pal Vegas Flea gave me something else to think about:
"The existing term really is 'life coach' but its such an undesirable term that the best thing would be for you to simply start out and let your satisfied clients refer clients to you and not worry too much what your business card has on it."I might just do that. It's not like I'm looking to market this service or anything; word of mouth is all I had in mind. And he hit the nail on the head about the term "life coach" being undesirable. I'm trying to figure out why--I guess I think of life coaches as being all wholesome and righteous and politically correct. God knows and you know that's not me. I just want to help people get shit done. Maybe that sums it up right there.

Anyway, on Saturday night I got to meet Debbie from the fabulous blog From Venting to Viggo. She is adorable and I could have talked her ear off for days. I was prepared for a totally off the wall whack job to rival Julie of 47 and Starting Over (now Fifty and Fabulous) fame, but Debbie is the sweetest person on earth and I'm not just saying that because she said I'm WAY better looking in real life, which happens to be true. Anyway, my dear Julie, your title remains intact. I love you both.
The absolute best thing about blogging is meeting my readers and other bloggers. I can guarantee that both of these

Do you have a Red Robin near you? If you do, check out this awesome menu customizer before you head there. It's amazing how well you can eat for very little carbs. I had the blackened chicken with no bun and substituted broccoli for fries. It was delicious!

Don't get me wrong--I do cook at home, but it's eating out that can really pack on the pounds. But if you take a look at the nutritional info beforehand, you'll at least know what you're getting. Baja Fresh, Panda Express, and Red Robin are all excellent restaurants if you're watching carbs. On the other hand, I'm sorry to say my days of Panera Bread are over. And if you want to pack on weight like there's no tomorrow, head on over to your nearest Five Guys.
Yeah, Mike and I are really pleased with the progress we're making; I'm down 7 pounds and he's down 10. It's so much easier if your partner is in it with you, that's for sure. And speaking of "doing it" with your partner, sorry if this is TMI, but consider this: there's 17 pounds that's no longer "between" us, if you know what I mean. Think about it--that's more than three 5-lb. bags of sugar! Believe me, that makes a difference.
Oh, and one more thing... I start my ballet class today! I'm so excited! I have no idea what to expect, but I'm hoping I like it. Too bad there won't be a video--wouldn't you love to see that? HA!
