Why "Get Fit With Katie"? get fit, v. - to become happy with yourself and to love your body.
While getting "fit" does mean getting you fit physically, it's also about your mentality! Girls from all over the world struggle with their self-confidence, so know that you're not alone. We get flooded with a constant media stream of perfect- looking, stunningly beautiful females on television, in magazines, and any time we’re online or on social media. From childhood, it’s natural to begin comparing our own bodies to those perfect figures — their curves, their slim thighs, their perfect hair. And that’s how we start hating our own bodies. Media and advertising know this, which is why they publish headlines like “Want a body like hers? Here’s how to get it.” This tactic is common and temporarily motivates people to exercise using self-hate and body-shaming. So it’s no wonder when the new regimen don’t stick.
Fitness that lasts doesn’t start by hating your body. Or trying to become someone else’s photoshopped idea of a woman. Instead of obsessing over how other women look, look at yourself in the mirror. Focus on what you love about your body, and fill your mind with it. Unlearn the bad habit of comparing your body to someone else’s.
