    For me: I know I'm a fitness fanatic when I'm the last to leave the gym time and time again...

    When you're out running at night in cold/rainy weather on holidays when most people are sitting around a table gorging.

    When you check out yourself more than you check out other guys.

    You get "bitchy" if you miss your workout for any reason.....
    Get told to "PLEASE! go to the gym" by other family members, because you are being "bitchy"
    You travel 1000 miles to visit relatives, and end up running in a couple of local 5K's for the hell of it! etc, etc.....LOL!icon_biggrin.gif

    If you are obsessed with reading nutrition labels on everything you eat...

    If you go to visit relatives and stop to find the nearest open gyms before going to see your family.

    _ you have to turn down dates with hot guys, or push them to a later time, because you have to get to the gym.

    When you are a member of three different gyms and sometimes go directly from one gym to another to complete your workout properly.

    Weights - Golds
    Swimming - 24 Hour
    Pilates - private trainer gym

    = way too much money, but great results

    The point is... they do know when I get in, I take the time to do my full workout and I'm usually one of the last ones to leave on that day.

    ...coworkers email you to have you stop by their office to go to the gym after work together because they KNOW you're going and want incentive.

    ...coworkers stop hunting around your area for munchies because they know all you have is almonds, craisins, peanut butter, raw veggies, and low-sodium V8.

    ...even THINKING about not going to the gym makes you feel guilty.

    When you plan all your business travel around your workouts...

    When you serve a huge elaborate dinner to friends, and all you eat is a small piece of pork and a large helping of spinack with pearl onions and crimini mushrooms...

    When your workout bag is more important to you than your laptop - and you own a technology company...

    When your best friends realise that your wine cooler is used for storing fruit flavored waters...

    When your partner gets up at 3 am and drives you to the gym because the alternative is that murderous look in his eye...

    When you carry your own weight set with you when you travel...

    I had a college intern once who had it bad.

    Once or twice he accidentally came to work without his gym bag - went for his lunchtime run anyway, in jeans and polo shirt. (Pitted out all afternoon)

    Dropped everything when his watch timer went off for one of his 6 meals and subsequent brushing and flossing.

    Of course, you could also tell from just once glance at his physique.

    Umm... and a former boss, not once but twice in my presence, bailed out of a taxi while on travel in a distant city because we drove past a running event in progress. (Once, flipping through a phrase book, trying to tell the driver to "find the starting line" in German...)

    Hmm... in the last year, I've taken several business conference calls while riding or lifting... But that's just efficiency.

    You decide to pass up the bars in favour of the gym. AMEN TO THAT SAYING!! I have to have my 2½-3¼ hour workouts before or after work. I hate the bars in my neck of the woods. I joined my brother's gym. It stays open 24/7 but I do know when to say when. That, and my folks tell me that I need to stay home sometimes. I hate being a couch potato if I gotta sit in a clean house.
