    All of the reasons. I just train because it has become a part of who I am. My original reason was to be strong.

    I want to be strong, healthy, sexy, and youthful.
    Also, I find running to be meditative. It makes me feel good.

    People who don't do it, don't diss people who do.
    People who do it should just do it quietly, don't take photos of yourself flexing or telling people on facebook you're going to the gym/ how great you feel after you leave the gym.
    Because at the end of the day, it might the guy who eats organic food, doesn't smoke, doesn't drink, works out 5 days a week that dies from a heart attack, while the guy who works in a paper factory, drinks every other day and eats greasy food outlives you. I witnessed such irony.

    I admire people who devotes their time to being active. But if you treat yourself with "diet" cokes and grocery shop mainly at the frozen, canned and deli sections (in your workout clothes, to make it more amusing), then the causes for your workout will not justify.

    I don't see why not. People commenting on what should and should not be put on facebook amuses me. That being said, too much of the same kind of updates gets tedious. Be it, gym, babies or food.

    My legs are really sore from all the training this week. Good sore.

    lol

    People decide whatever they want to do, of course. Gym, babies, food, boys, girls, music, movies, quotes, etc., not anything I'd share on facebook, instagram or anywhere else that's digital, I just don't use those interfaces anymore.
    It always a question to me that what people really seek when they post these stuff on facebook? Validation? Interpersonalization? Ego boosts? Acceptance? None appeals to me, so I don't quite understand why people can't just keep these things to themselves and among the people who truly care or are involved. Nevertheless, people are different.

    Yeah, that is an interesting aspect of it. I enjoy sharing things mostly for amusement. I also like that I get to be creative with it in a way that I have full control. My wife shares your perspective. I think for most people it is just as simple as "Hey, look at this, listen to this" the same way you would do with friends face to face.

    I can't vote because I have multiple reasons. I work in a gym, I want to be healthy. I want to be as strong as possible. I want to look good (within the confines of my DNA)
