Fitness trainer Katie Veazie-Vitale says, "For me, training to be athletic, move well, lift heavy, and move fast has truly healed my relationship with my own body and food. There’s no shame in training for aesthetics if your mind is in the right place but it can become a slippery slope. The same can be said with training for performance. The constant pursuit to better yourself in any capacity can quickly become an obsession and lead to feelings of never being good enough."
"Remember to step back and acknowledge how far you’ve come and praise yourself for even starting the journey. You can love yourself as the person you are today and still desire to be better."
