6 Reasons Working Out With A Friend Is So Much Better

Everyone needs one--a good workout buddy.

6 Reasons Working Out With A Friend Is So Much Better
Our Body Book

1. Someone to hold you accountable.

Having a workout partner means that you can't make excuses such as "It's raining" or "I'm tired, I'll take the day off." You and your partner have a date with exercise and they will NOT be stood up. You have to throw on your running shoes and go conquer the day, well, because your friend said so.

2. Someone to put you in your place.

When you have a good workout, of course confidence is a great thing. However, your workout partner can be your small reminder that you have many more goals to reach and you better not get slack.

3. Someone to selfie with.

Everyone knows that you didn't actually go to the gym unless all of your followers know you were there. Your workout partner will snap super cute pics and vids of you doing those box jumps, or not so cute ones running those stadiums. Either way, at least Instagram knows you are both #fit.

4. Someone to celebrate with.

After said selfie, you can celebrate how great you look with your post-workout glow (because you and your workout buddy don't sweat...you sparkle, right?)

5. Someone who understands.

Man know no pain like the pain after leg day. It's good to have a workout partner you can complain to, who understands that walking up those stairs, or sitting in that chair really is the absolute worst thing in the world. Maybe, if you're lucky, you'll find someone crazy enough to want to do it again soon.

6. Someone who motivates you.

This is the most important part of having a workout partner. When you're ready to give up, sweating uncontrollably, on the brink of death, your workout partner is going to push you and tell you things that make you want to run another mile. Also, you need someone who won't let you feel guilty about that ice cream you snuck in, they'll probably order one with you.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
