Elizabeth Malgari, CFP® – Wealth Advisor & Director of Client Experience

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.
