Balanced Living Weekly

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 Podcast

In this episode of Balanced Living Weekly, Fr. Roderick and Cliff Ravenscraft discuss God’s faithfulness in providing for the needs of those who are called according to His purpose.

Cliff shared that he had been reading the auto-biography of George Mueller.

After several days of quiet self reflection, Cliff has concluded that the one truth that God has been laying on his heart during this time is that…. “Any occupation can be used to serve the Lord, but certain principles must be followed in secular work. The Christian must guard against any attitudes or practices that will keep him from experiencing God's, abundant prosperity. God is not likely to bless anything that leads a believer to depend more on himself or his circumstances than on the living God.” This is a direct quote from George Muller.

Biggest Loser Podcast

This week, Father Roderick had some technical difficulties and Cliff is joined by Stephanie as they discuss season 10 episode 2 of the Biggest Loser. In this episode, Stephanie also gives Cliff some much needed nudging and accountability. It's amazing how easy it is to loose steam and it's also amazing how difficult it is to get back on that horse and find that much needed momentum to keep moving forward. Cliff is hoping that it has more to do with all the traveling that he's been doing and that he can break this bad cycle of non-activity and get back into the calorie counting and hard core workouts.

Biggest Loser Podcast

The Biggest Loser is a television show broadcast in many countries. It centers on overweight contestants attempting to lose weight to fight for a cash prize. There are different variations of the Biggest Loser around the world. Each country has made its own adaptation to the show. However, the contestants always have the same goal: to lose the highest percentage of weight (or most weight) to become the Biggest Loser.

While we cover the United States version of the show, which returns for its 10th season this week, you do not have to be a fan of the tv show or even watch it to enjoy the content of this podcast. Please join Father Roderick and Cliff Ravenscraft as they discuss, in this episode, why they are excited that the Biggest Loser is returning to the tv screen this week.
