That's wonderful! Good job weighing your options and choosing what will serve you best in the long-term rather than choosing the short-term pleasure! That's the way to work it!
Kaizen, Japanese for "continuous improvement" or "change for the better," refers to philosophy or practices that focus upon continuous improvement of processes. Kaizen is a daily process of making changes and monitoring results, then adjusting as needed.
Ok- I got one! Today, I choose to go home and eat a big salad and homemade dinner rather than eat at Roy Rodger's. Now this may not seems big to you but, we (Marty and I ) were about a 1/2 hr from home and Roy's was VERY close by. We dont have Roy's were we live and it was very temping but I opted not to go!. Hay for me and hay for sparks teaching me about the spark!
Make today count! Drink water! it flows!

Thanks for the reply (and the hugs!) I don't usually snack on crisps or savory things or sweeties, the only thing I'm a sucker for is chocolate, but I tend just to not buy it (especially a pack of something) so it's not there for me to eat. When I'm at uni, although I love cooking I usually make big matches of stuff cause it's better for time and money. I'll do like a ratatouille or pot of mixed veg and some kind of meat like a roast chicken or pork, and then just take portions of that or salad until it runs out, then repeat. So my only thing is that maybe, especially with a roast, it's not the healthiest way of cooking the meat? Oh and at the moment I live for my coffees, usually limit to 2 a day if I can, I've heard differing reports of who bad coffee is... I'm going to start a food diary I think and try to write in it most days, so that I catch myself out if I do have a bad day!
You are a busy person for sure with the exam coming up and everything sometimes its not just the workout burning the calories that count HOw is your nutrition what kinds of food do you eat? Is it loaded with fat sodium & carbs? I'd check that angle out by tracking what I am consuming Everytime I don't see results or see the wrong results its my foods that are doing me in.
Good luck with your exams

After doing great straight after sign up, started to struggle again as work piled up at uni, and now I'm in the position that I've gained everything (and more!) that I'd lost! Worst thing is that I need to focus on my massive exams that I have in 4 weeks (studying medicine and these are some of my last ones) but I have a ball 3 weeks after that. Now this ball I've probably been building up far too many expectations, but it's one for our whole year and I kind of wanted it to be where I get to show off that finally I'm not the fat friend anymore. Doesn't look like I'll quite get that wish but I'm still hoping, but kind of needing a bit of a boost at the moment! All I ever do though is get up at the crack of dawn to go to the gym, work in the library for 12 hours then go home exhausted and straight to bed, and as much as I know that it'll be worth it, because I'm not getting any good results right now I'm just a little bit down and needing some cheering up. Sorry if this is too much of a rant, it all just kept flooding out!
