Tear down, to build... muscle building time... it's a process that does not happen overnight. It ain't cute. It ain't easy. Folks will chime in and make comments instead of working on their own life... but you have to figure out what's healthy for you. We all don't look alike so every persons "healthy" will be different and that's ok. Cheers to everyone who has embraced being in a better place... mind, body and soul β™‘β™‘β™‘ #spreadlove #support #rejectthebullshit #42
