Are you going broke?

I was talking with friend last night.  She talked about how it’s hard to keep priorities this time of year (Christmas time).   She’s busy going to 47 Christmas parties, buying gifts, spending time with friends, and somewhere in there … she works.   We talked about weight gain, staying on budget, and sticking to goals.  They’re all related.

Have you gained 5, 10, 15 lbs lately?  Check your finances.  When your weight goes up, you’re probably spending more money.  Check your work, too.  If your eating discipline has gone out the window, your positive work habits may have followed.  It might be time to look at what’s cluttered in your house and office too.

There’s a good chance that you’re too busy, not getting enough sleep and haven’t set clear priorities for yourself.  Or something has changed in your life that changed priorities for you.

I’m not pointing fingers.  I’ve gained 10 pounds in the last two months.  The bag of Doritos I’m munching on is almost empty.  My new twins threw my priorities up in the air.  It’s time for me to get my priorities in place.  It’s time for me to check some things before I go broke.
