Waiting for your "health pot" to boil

Ever sat waiting for a pot to boil only to have it feel like FOREVER? Our personal goals can be a bit like that too- when our focus is narrow, we miss the blessings of life all around us. Here's how to keep your eye on the prize and the rest of your life in balance.

"A watched pot never boils."

In a similar way, a "watched scale" never moves.

The other day this happened (again) to me. I was at the stove waiting for the water to boil. In the meantime my kids were racing behind me and my husband was trying to tell me a story. My focus was not on them, but instead the pot.

I was missing life because I was focused on something that was out of my control.

Don't be that person. Don't let the obsession with your health make you miss the life happening all around you. It's not an either/or situation. Both can happen and can be done well. Get your plan, work your plan . . . then live your life.

That pot? It'll boil when it's time to. Until then, get out of the kitchen and get on with your life. 

Train Hard. Eat Well. Live Free.
