That’s a word that sails a thousand ships…isn’t it?
I SHOULD work out, because i’m unfit.
I SHOULD go on a diet, because the doctor said i’m overweight.
I SHOULD care about my health more, because, well, I SHOULD…
…because saying these things to ourselves (and listening to others saying them) over and again has proven itself to be effective…NOT!
Instead of saying to yourself you SHOULD do anything, use the word CHOOSE.
I CHOOSE to workout, because I deserve the benefits.
I CHOOSE to eat healthy foods, because I love my body.
I CHOOSE to care about my health, because my family and friends deserve the best of me.
You will succeed because of the worth you place in yourself, the way you are TODAY…NOT in the shame you feel about the way you SHOULD be tomorrow.
You deserve health and vitality. Your BODY deserves movement and care!
Go get it!
thank daniel steve for this great workout my legs are sore of me
i rely like so far and it is very fun . Cb
I’m making should a “flagged” word in my brain. Think it, nix it.
I am enjoying the workouts. I usually do one of yours and a walk only base one due to bad knees, especially the left. I need to have knee replacement surgery. I must lose about 60 lbs. before I can have the surgery. My highest weight was 320 lbs. I have lost 45 lbs.
That SHOULD word is devious. One would think that it’s a positive thing, but it’s a word that has emptiness. SHOULD means there’s an option to NOT do it. The other word that I try not to use is ONLY. “I ONLY worked out for 20 minutes.” “I ONLY did 8 pushups.” Drop that word. “I worked out for 20 minutes.” “I did 8 pushups.” Set yourself up for success mentally to win the game physically.
Wade, you & Angie are what motivated me to start working out!!
“Don’t should on yourself”
A quote I try to live by. Takes practice.
My favorite is I DO!
I work out for myself, and nobody else, but me , you guys are the best.
Thank you Daniel. This is something I have been struggling with for a while. I should… a great way to beat myself up when I don’t manage to get something done. I choose is so much kinder to ourselves.
I am choosing to do a workout now.
Have a good one.
This is a great message Daniel! Choosing to take care of ourselves , because we deserve it !! We must continue to remind ourselves!
You are so right, Daniel!
The wee voice in my head says”I really need to do x, y or z”, or sometimes “I must do…”. Trying to make the change to a more positive frame of mind, isn’t easy, but awareness of that wee the voice is the first step.
I’m here because I choose to do something about my health.
