My Second Job

Sunday, October 17, 2010

Last Monday I met some friends for dinner at 5:30 pm. When I arrived, someone said "You worked out first". Part of that comment may have been due to my appearance but most of it was because my friends know that I work out everyday after work. I went to work early that day so that there would be time to exercise before going out to dinner.
I now consider my time at the fitness center my "second job". With this new perspective, it becomes important that I show up everyday and complete my daily goals, just like at my office job.
Both jobs offer great benefits. My "Work In" job provides professional satisfaction, medical benefits including the Passport to Wellness program [where I learned about SparkPeople], free access to the fitness center and a pay check every 2 weeks. My "Work Out" job provides aerobic and strength fitness, the comradery of others while exercising, and the advice of the exercise physiologists. Others want a second job to have a wealthy lifestyle but my second job offers much more than money can buy - it is providing a healthy lifestyle!

    That's a great way of looking at it. Health is so important.If you don't have that you don't have much of anything.
