This man knows the power of words. And bow ties.

Today is about words and phrases you need to eliminate from your fitness program vocabulary. In no particular order:
 
But (Rachel Cosgrove defines this as Behold the Underlying Truth)
Try
Kinda
Sort of
I do....most of the time
Roll Tide
I can't
Should
I give up
I'm not good enough
I don't deserve
Words have a lot of power. Do you doubt me? Go watch old episodes of Pee Wee's Playhouse when the word of the day came up. Madness! You can use words to tear yourself down or build yourself up, why choose to tear down? When I hear people say things like "I will try to eat better/exercise more/cook dinner tonight." I know that the majority of the time they will not be doing it. Now if someone says I am determined to eat better/exercise/cook dinner, then I am confident they will be taking care of business. It is a little mental trick that you can use. Using the right words can cement your commitment and help you get things done.
