#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.

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
Whenever I go out for the day with my camera gear, my favorite item I will never leave behind is a good lens cloth. It is really easy to get a small piece of dust or a smear on your port, and there is no fixing it once you are in the water! I have had some days where I took an awesome photo, only to discover a blurry lines in the middle. The disappointment could have been prevented if I had cleaned my port and lens thoroughly before jumping in the ocean.  So be sure to clean off your camera lens, your port – INSIDE and OUT!

SeaMade: Surf Cross-Training | Stairs Workout

How’d you do this holiday season? Did you practice Goldfish Kisses’s holiday work out plan ? Well whatever you did or didn’t consume/do, there’s never a better time for a swift kick in the butt than the beginning of the year. Whether you’re trying to trim down or tone up, stair workouts will give you long lean muscles and torch fat pockets.

I do this workout on a set of beach stairs with about 50 steps. If your local steps are shorter then just add more reps. Walk or slow jog in between each set on your way down to get a breather… (more…)
