We often hear the phrase make your money work for you. Why wouldn’t we want our money working to make us more money? This is the foundation of investing. I have come to realize that this phrase extends beyond my view of investing and money. I have learned my body can work for me as well.

A few months ago, a local friend started a new Pilates studio called BTone in our small town, and I wanted to support her. I paired up with an early-rising friend and we started working out twice a week at 5:45 a.m. My body has been sore after each session and my kids no longer wonder why I’m moaning as I pick up something I dropped or as I slowly make my way upstairs with the laundry.

It has been 14 weeks, and I can see physical changes in my body and I’m enjoying my new strength that I worked so hard to develop. Amazingly, I found that my new body is now working for me.

  • Calorically – As I gain muscle, I’m burning more and more calories and shedding some unwanted weight.
  • Sleep – My body is physically tired, and I have a reason to get up the next morning, so I have prioritized my sleep schedule over Netflix shows that I don’t need to watch.
  • Prioritizing myself – I discovered that I don’t miss that hour of the morning when I typically slept. I love my 5:45 workout group, and the fact that my kids, work and life did not have to shift to accommodate exercise is a win. Like most people, I struggle with giving up the things I love.
  • Socially – I get to hang out with a friend twice a week and catch up, which is much needed in both of our busy lives.

I plan to keep the momentum going and I look forward to seeing what the next month will bring. Investing in myself is paying dividends, and I’m excited to see where it leads me.
