Monday mornings have taken on a whole new meaning for me these days. Monday is the day of the week that I've set aside as my “Weigh In Day.” One again, I'm excited to announce that I have continued to drop a few pounds.
In fact, in the past seven days, I've lost another 3 pounds. This brings my total weight loss to 12 pounds in only three weeks. I also lost an additional 1.5 inches from around my waistline. Quite literally, there is less and less of me as the weeks go by.
In this podcast episode, I share my excitement not only about my weight loss, but I also share an exciting story from this weekend. I'll first share the story with you…
This past Tuesday evening, I took the family to the “Dollar Saver Cinema” to see the movie, “Race To Witch Mountain.” It was an enjoyable family movie that our family enjoyed very much.
I had some major client projects to complete and a podcasting webinar to prepare for this weekend that caused me to have to work late into the evening Friday and all day long on Saturday.
Since I didn't have much time with the family on Friday and Saturday, I decided to surprise the family by treating them to lunch at Chipotle (our family's favorite place to eat) and to a movie at the Deluxe Cinema. We saw “Night At The Museum 2.” It also was an enjoyable family movie.
The story, however, happened as a conversation that occurred during our lunch at Chipotle.
Meagan, my 11 year old daughter, asked me… “Dad, where did you get all the money to take out out to eat and to the movies twice this week?
I responded by telling her that it was the result of me focusing a lot on my work and due the blessings of picking up a few new clients recently.
Then Meagan says… “But Dad, you haven't been working as much lately, you've been spending a lot more time with the family lately!”
That my friends is what this whole “Pursuing A Balanced Life” thing is all about!

I share some thoughts on this conversation:
johnbuehler: Falling of the #pabl wagon for a day or two. Giant chipotle burrito for lunch…yummm!
GSPN: @johnbuehler Chipotle tortilla is 290 Calories. If you get a Bowl w/rice, black beans, chicken, salsa, & cheese is only 640 calories. #PABL
GSPN: @johnbuehler Walking “fast” for 60 minutes would burn off 400 of those calories. :) #PABL
