About seven years ago, I made

About seven years ago, I made a huge decision that really changed the way I viewed working out. I decided to workout 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. I realized 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 that will make your head explode). But please, pretty please, stray from working out in order to look like someone else, especially if that someone is in a photoshopped pic. 
This is one of my weekly guest posts over at swell.com. High five.
