What you say is what you get

Saying you "should" do something, like exercise, immediately implies that you feel the activity is a burden, says Michael Sachs, PhD, an exercise psychology professor at Temple University in Philadelphia."
How true is that?
In addition, to me, saying I "should" do something implies that I really don't have to BUT I will feel guilty when I don't!
He goes on to say that one would be better off with substitute words such as "want" "plan" "will" for the "should".
SOOO.....I'm "planning" to work on that self-talk in this new year since positive self-talk is the #1 predictor of success, according to several books I am currently reading.
On a positive note
TC and I WANTED to walk 5 miles today, we PLANNED to do it, and we DID! In 87 minutes!
