"When your body gets used to simple living, don't preen over it; if you're a water drinker, don't take every opportunity to announce it. If you want to train for physical austerities, do it for yourself, not for outsiders. Don't embrace marble statues; but if you happen to be very thirsty, try taking some cold water in your mouth and spitting it out - and don't tell anyone." - Epictetus

As I train I must remember why I am training, and for whom. This is not about looking better or making a show of myself. I must work on my soul and the way to do that is by keeping to the path without the need to make a big deal of it.
