Your Body is your Temple or Statue..but what would it look like?

If you were a statue, how would you look? What would you be made out of? …Stone?.. Wood?..wet sand??… Steel maybe? Also, what do I mean by foundation in terms of the human body is what you might be asking.

fitnessWhat I’m talking about is 1) diet and 2) exercise routine. Think of the stone as a healthy diet and the hammer and chisel as an appropriate exercise routine. If the diet is poor (more on what constitutes a poor diet later), I’m sorry to break it to you but the statue isn’t made out of stone, the sculptor is just chiseling away at something akin to wet sand (susceptible to the passing whims of the ocean tide).

Now with a well thought out, high in protein, low in sugar, moderate healthy fats type of diet, we are now working with something more eternal which stands the tests of time (a.k.a. “aging gracefully”) like stone and/or steel. Now, Just diet alone will keep one healthy and with a strong foundation. However, I’m sure many can agree with me here, I don’t want to just be a big block of impervious material. I want to mold myself to the likeness of my desire. We naturally crave individuality. Based on the desired outcome of the statue we want to express our physical selves with, a tool to mold this creation into being must be chosen. This tool is exercise. Are you still with me? In non spiritual terms I said, “assuming diet is on point, the chosen exercises will dictate the ultimate/final result of how one’s physique will look over time.” There’s a specific tool for just about any fitness goal one can imagine (strength, aesthetics, endurance, etc.). Me personally, I’ve chosen the hammer and chisel type that aims towards creating an aesthetically pleasing sculpture.

What’s important to remember, if there’s one thing you take from this article it’s this, it’s up to the sculptor to decide what is beautiful and what is not. Once this decision has been made, the limit is only your imagination for what you can create.
