Welcome To The Balanced Living Weekly Podcast

The Balanced Living Weekly Podcast was a show that I, Cliff, produced with Fr. Roderick Vonhogen from SQPN. The show originally started out as the Biggest Loser Fan Podcast. However, when the tv show would end its season, we wanted to continue our show.

Eventually, we decided to rebrand the show as the Balanced Living Weekly Podcast. In January of 2012, Fr. Roderick and I both decided that we were going to practice what we preach by rearranging out schedule to increase the level of margin in our lives. It is for this reason that we made the decision to end show.

Biggest Loser PodcastThey say all great things must come to an end. In this final episode of Balanced Living Weekly, Fr. Roderick and I (Cliff) talk about why it’s been six months since our last episode and why we had made the decision to end this show.

Before signing off, we did want to give everyone and update about where we are in our pursuit of living a balanced and healthy lifestyle. We also shared some valuable lessons that we have learned about priority management and organizing our lives in such a way that has allowed us to experience more margin, day to day. We are both accomplishing more of the things that are most important things to us, that always seemed to get put off in the past.

It is our sincerest hope that this will not be a goodbye and that you will instead follow us in the other places where we are still producing content and sharing our lives online. Please consider clicking the links below and follow us as we continue to share our pursuit of balanced living!

Biggest Loser PodcastIn this episode of Balanced Living Weekly, Fr. Roderick shared how making sure he’s getting the proper amount of sleep is helping him to manage the massive amount of work that he has on his schedule during this very busy holiday time.

I shared that while I am experiencing a greater amount of margin and free time during my evenings and on the weekends, I’m finding myself wanting to always “do something.” Rather than giving into the temptation of working on work related things, we discussed things that I might instigate to spice things up a bit during family time.

Chrissy called in with some feedback related to restaurants with calorie counts on their menus. Mary called in to share her own tip on how to save money by working out with things you may already have in your home. Beth called in to share how scheduling her workouts has helped her to make that a part of your normal daily routine. Jeanne called in with some thoughts about her Boston Marathon run.

Father Roderick also mentioned a podcast that Beth and her husband are doing at http://thetightrope.net.

Please note that we will not be recording an episode of Balanced Living Weekly next week due to Fr. Roderick’s trip to Rome. We’ll return the following week with a new episode and hope to hear from you on our voicemail feedback hotline at 859-795-4067.

They also discuss pending laws that would require restaurant chains to list their calories on their menu and how movie theatres are bragging about how they were able to lobby to become exempted from such a requirement.

There is also a discussion about the difficulties of saying “No” and how this can lead to issues of over commitment.
