The Balance Of Healthy, Happy, and Wealthy

So over on my BackpackBusinessLifestyle.com blog we talk about being healthy, happy, and wealthy and I truly believe you should focus on those things in that order.

But…

Keeping all three of those things well balanced is a constant struggle. At least for me it is!

The main two you need to keep focused on his the healthy and wealth because MOST of the time when you’ve got those two things in check the happy just comes. I mean when you feel good and you have money in your pocket life is a lot easier, right? Which makes you happier.

So with my struggle to balance everything I’ve let my health go a bit. 🙁

Since May 2014 I lost 80 pounds. In the last 2 months I’ve put about 10-15 of that back on.

Why?

1. Because I LOVE sweets and I’ve let myself eat too many. Along with other “bad” foods!

2. I’m not running, riding my bike, or doing any exercising.

I can make all the excuses in the world… I made a big move, I’ve been working a lot… Blah blah blah…

At the end of the day though it’s my fault. I could have NOT eaten those candy bars, carrot cakes, and all the other sweets I stick in my mouth.

I could have taken at least an hour a day out of my busy schedule and made myself sweat.

I own that and I’m going to be changing that. More on that in a minute…

Another bad health thing I did was to continue on with smoking and I let it get worse. Uuuggh again!

This week I get my new e-cigarette, and I’m going to be using it to get my off of regular cigarettes and then will be able to put the e-cigarette down. Thank you, but I don’t need advice on this. I need to do it my way. 🙂

I’m ready to get the healthy part of healthy, happy, and wealthy back in check!

In other words I need to start working harder to drop the 10-15 pounds I’ve gained back to get back on track to lose the last 25-30 to hit my goal weight, and get back on track.

How am I going to do that?

I’m going to do it with YOU if you want to join in…

Here’s what I’m doing to help you and me get healthy and continually STAY that way. I’ve started a Facebook group at http://www.MyGetHealthyChallenges.com

In this group we will be doing several different challenges to get healthy. The way I lost 80 pounds and stuck with eating right and exercising was by diversifying what I ate and my fitness activities. I get bored very easily and will drop something quick if I get bored!  To help you do the same and keep you going we’re going to be doing different 5 day challenges (they will last Monday – Friday so we can do what we want on the weekends) at least once a month and hopefully get it to a weekly schedule.

You can join for free at http://www.MyGetHealthyChallenges.com

Nothing for sale there… I just want to interact with my customers and fans and friends and help us all get healthy and stay that way. I hope you’ll join me!

I’d love to hear from you about how you keep everything in your life balanced, so leave your comments below…

Talk soon!

  1. Hi Liz Tomey,

    Experience will tell you in
    the long run it is a
    “Mind Set” thing.
    Have to do that First or it all crumbles along the way.

    Many people shy away from the “Change your Habits and Mindset.”
    Just the way life is.
    Your Brain and Your Mind are the Head Parasite in charge.
    (from Microbiology lecture I remember this… what was said is that human
    bodies are a working co-op of parasites functioning together to maintain the whole in order to survive.)
    As you have discovered, it is easier to gain back those lost pounds than it is
    to maintain a weight loss.
    All because we are Human and get bored and then carried away with excitement while doing something that rates higher on the I Like This List than just maintaining a few Habits that keep us in line.

    Called Life and Living.
    ~C
