I know I am a fitness fanatic because...

My 5 1/2 year old daughter has made the Kids Fun Center in my gym her second home and when I pick her up from after school childcare, she shouts to her friends that she is going to the gym as I am walking in the door.

I have twice daily workouts ranging from 2-3 (per day) hours on every day I workout.

My boyfriend is out of town and I am trying to think how I can either schedule time around him or make up for lost workout time on days I spend over/He spends over (debating getting another gym membership where he lives, so we can go together ...)

Yes, I wake up at 4:00 am to workout!

I have to constantly buy new tshirts because they have either worn out or the funk has set in!

In times when money is low and I have to juggle bills, I would rather suffer late fees on utilities, than my gym membership!

When the very thought of not being able to go to "my gym" makes me want to pass out!

When you seriously consider not going to the summer cottage because there's no treadmill, no DVD player (for step aerobics), and no where to store your free weights.

When you see a porn film and think "Hmm, nice abs, I wonder what his workout routine is?" before you think "OH MY GOD, that can't be real."

When you look like a shetland pony because you can't afford a haircut, but there's always money for whey and fish oil.

When you pack for your holiday and bring a skipping rope and elastic tubes, and wonder if you should bring dumbbells. And you are packing to go skiing.

When you put on a pair of jeans and your children ask you why you are all dressed up.

When you've got ten workout bras, and only one sheepdog bra.

...the front desk staff at the gym no longer ask for your secondary ID.

...your idea of "light" exercise leaves your abs sore the next morning.

...when someone asks you about your goals, and you say without thinking, "20% body fat by Christmas."

Definitely. Olympic lifting is my Prozac.

Also one more for the list

A coworker brings in their 4 y.o. kid to the office, and while everyone else is saying "Awww, how cute!" you're thinking "I bet I could one-arm press him."

When every magazine in your house is fitness related
When you've been a member of every gym in your city
When you surprise your friends/family when it's time to move....they're like "how the heck did you lift that" LOL

this is a great thread! halarious, too many to list!

-When you not only schedule when to drink your protein shakes but also
where and when youll clean your shaker cup in between.

-When you get up from the dinner table and start to wipe down your chair.

-When you think that youve really dialed in the discrepencies between different eliptical machines. "this one has much more of a smooth motion, but doesnt have a far enough range.....who the heck designed the grips on this one anyway and orangutan? they should be angled alittle more this, im sweating alot today, looks like im going to have to wipe up the floor too.....oh no! here comes bad-morning breath guy and hes heading right for the machine to my right, cool down time!"

-When 40min deep into a eliptical dredge you absolutely understand the Theory of Relativity! "does time actually exist?!........700calories! that cant be right."

-When in the parking lot of the supermarket instead of helping the old lady get the big bag of cat litter into her trunk you go to spot her. "you got it, come on!"

-When after 6 months of seeing "that wierd guy" in the gym, you finally see what car he drives. "ah-ha!" (i made myself laugh at that one.)

-When you start trying to really figure out whos stealing the carabiners off of the cables!

-"how many sets is this guy gonna freakin do over here!........and look at this, hes one of those guys who just sits in the machine in between sets, get up you wierdo!...i know what car you drive!" *inner dialogue*

-When your sick of re-calibrating the scale everyday. how does it get so far off in one day?

-When you start whispering to people about your Gyms conspiracy in buying mirrors that make you look bigger there than in your home mirror.

-When you think leaving 800 lbs of plates on the leg press is the most dispicable offense.

-When your friend will never understand why you cant go for a hike 3 days after leg day.

-When your walking to your next machine and someone gets there right before you and you have to act like you were totally heading for the ancient "neck machine" in the corner of the gym. "yup, just a couple sets here....hmmm...needs alittle dusting."

-When after doing cardio you leave the screen on and hope someone notices the calorie assault you just ripped, muttering "anyone need their car jumped?" *self-highfive*

-When you must be having a good day because "partial-rep guy" isnt pissing you off from a distance.

-When you feel the "weekend warriors" should wear those yellow basketball pennies to distinguish them.

These 2 happened to me at work recently:

-When someone tells you that theyre having a hard time losing fat, and after you briefly mention that you LC and that LC'ing is a sure bet, they then look at you like you just keyed their car and say, "but carbs are like all i eat.....i think i eat carbs everymeal, i love my bread and pasta, arent carbs energy?"........*look towards ceiling*........*long sigh*.........."alright...."*LC diatribe begins*

-when your boss, in all seriousness, tells you that he has abs but he just has alittle fat covering them. *Que brainmelt*

12) A forced rest day causes you great anxiety and you feel like a blimp because you didn't work out that day.

(OH! ABSOLUTELY!!! There is no such thing as "rest day". Its like punishment or something.)

When in the middle of a reception you notice that you are checking people's feet if they are under/over or normal pronators.
(Oh my gosh....I do this while out on a work out....)

you bring you own food to family events and get togethers with friends.
(AND to work because lunch is catered.)

Life revolves around the work out, so you only were work out clothes.
Saves time.
