Isn't the whole point of working out that we'll know without you telling us? If the only way for people to notice that you've been hitting the gym is to inform them on social media, it might be time to switch up that exercise routine. We also love the statuses looking for sympathy because they aren't going to the gym or they're cheating on their diet. We do this sort of thing all the time, but we've learned that you are infinitely better off keeping the shame of eating an entire box of Oreos in one evening between you and the crumb-filled sofa cushion.
