#SWELLivin

About seven years ago, I made a huge decision that really changed the way I viewed working out. I decided to work out for my health, instead of looks. It was one of the best decisions of my life. The more I focused on trying to be healthy and take care of my body, instead of trying to look like someone else, or achieve a magic number on a scale, is when everything started to fall into place. You realize working out is all about health, longevity and happiness, not about six packs, and selfies.

So, I say choose to workout for a bunch of reasons (I listed a few above. Google “health benefits of working out” and be prepared for over a weeks worth of reading), but please, pretty please, stray from working out in order to look like someone else, especially if that someone is in a photoshopped pic.
