Once again, it is that time of year, and as I sat down to write another column along those lines, it occurred that my approach was all wrong. The advice I had given in the past was valid, and hopefully it had helped some people get back into the groove of regular exercise. But why does it work for some and not for others? The fitness industry has turned into a billion dollar realm based on playing on the fears of an America obsessed with appearance. "The fattest people in the world," headlines trumpet. Everyone obsesses about body image. We all worry about whether we've gained weight over the holidays. We worry if we're too fat. We worry if our muscles are big enough. We worry, worry, worry. Somehow, the true message of exercise has gotten lost in the shuffle. Exercise is about being healthier and improving your quality of life. It's not about dropping four pounds so you can fit into those 30-waist jeans. It's not about going on a fad diet because you feel bad about being overweight. It's not about getting pecs the size of grapefruits so other men will think you're hot. It's not about having washboard abs so you can go shirtless at a bar. It's not about training for a marathon. What happens to your body when you exercise regularly is a side effect. The goal should be living a healthier lifestyle. Exercise is about feeling better about yourself, but not better about the way vou look. Exercise is your way of saying We all worry about whether we've gained weight over the holidays. We worry if we're too fat. We worry if our muscles are big enough. We worry, worry, worry Somehow, the true message of exercise has gotten lost in the shuffle. to yourself, and everyone else, "I care about myself." Don't you do regular preventive maintenance on your car? On your house? Well, why not do preventive maintenance on your body? Why not approach it from that perspective? Forget about the weight. Forget about the body image. Forget about everything except that you are taking care of yourself. So, if you want to make a resolution regarding exercise this year, here's one I suggest: "I resolve that in the 21st century that I am going to treat my body with the respect that it is more than entitled to. I am not going on fad diets. I am not going to buy into the latest exercise fad. I am going to start exercising and I am going to find an exercise routine that appeals to me, whether it is weight lifting, aerobics, playing tennis, taking walks, jogging or riding a bicycle. "I am going to eat a sensible diet with the proper combinations of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. If I have to miss some exercise or if I want to indulge in a cheesecake. I will do it and not judge myself harshly because of it. I am going to do this because I care about myself, and because I deserve to have a better, healthier quality of life. I am not going to be intimidated by anything or anyone that wants to stand in my way. i deserve it." That is the attitude that you need to have. That is the positive mental attitude that will get you into the groove. You can do it. Don't let negativity invade your life. And once you start treating yourself better, it will carry over into other aspects of your life as well. Don't allow the negativity in. E)on't tell yourself you can't do it. You can. It is possible. People do it every day, and are happier and healthier because of it. You'll be amazed. Greg Herren is a personal trainer and fitness writer. He can be reached at 504-588- 9563 or at greghl21@aol.com.
