If you don't like it don't do it! If you don't like it don't eat it!
Why do we make ourselves miserable doing things that other people tell us we SHOULD do? Just because so and so runs 5 miles a day doesn't mean I have to. Just because brussel sprouts are healthy for me doesn't mean I have to choke them down.
I'm in this for the long haul, and I want my life to be a happy enjoyable one. I don't get enjoyment out of boring workouts that end in pain. Eating oddly shaped soy curd does not make me happy.
If I want to have a cookie, then it will be my favorite. I refuse to waste calories eating a dry fat-free, sugar-free, chemically altered "snack" cake.
If I want to exercise, it will be on my terms. Sometimes I want my abs to burn, sometimes I just want to stretch.
There are plenty of alternatives in life. No one way is the right way. Starting today if I don't like it, I won't do it. If I don't like it, then I won't eat it.

What is really important to you? How do you treat it? If an event (your wedding day) is really important, you plan for it, you invite others to share it, you take the time to fully enjoy it!
Is food important to you? Then why do we eat in the dark, on the run, or in secret. If we can't give up certain foods because they are THAT important, then treat them that way. Plan for it, share with others, sit down and enjoy the meal. If it's not that important - skip it.
You are important. Your health and well being is important. Let's treat ourselves like we really believe it!
