When someone asks you what some of your interests or hobbies are and you reply working out and going to the gym, it gives off the impression that you're shallow, and only care about looks, especially if you're surrounded by people who don't follow the same philosophy. For me though, working out is much more than just trying to get a shredded six-pack and look good for the beach. I'm going to be honest that yes those thoughts do cross my mind and some of my fitness goals are based on my physical appearance, but that is mostly to focus on a tangible result.
I am packing my bags again, this time to go to Germany for a week. Since I have been complaining about the direct flights from Raleigh to Los Angeles a few weeks ago, I am looking forward to travel part of my vacation with mixed emotions.
