Wow, I feel really, really good!!!

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

I am nearing the end of my second week with SP and I feel great. I feel great fueling my body with the right things and exercising for the first time on a consistent basis in years. I am surprised how well my body is treating me now that I am treating it better! I am not sluggish by 7 pm and my stomach is not in knots all the time. If I don't lose a pound this week, I will be ok because I feel great. I don't miss that greasy fried food or all the sugar in the foods I used to eat at all. I pray I remember this feel, the difference you feel when you are good to your body as opposed to abusing it. emoticon

Nursing school begins on Monday, will good habits end?

Saturday, August 23, 2008

I am so nervous about Monday. My final year of nursing school begins on Monday and my schedule will be very hectic and busy from this point, until I graduate in May 2009. I am so afraid that my diet will go back to Pepsi and fast food. I am planning ahead by stocking up on healthy snacks and I am addicted to water now. I hope I can make it through this semester and maintain the new habits I am learning. emoticon

    You can do anything that you set out to do. I was 45 when I started nursing school and was working as a paramedic up to 12 hr + a night. It was hard to study and keep good grades; to juggle work; clinicals and family. YOU CAN DO IT AND YOU WILL!! emoticon

    I also started college again (not for nursing) last week. I worried that I wouldn't stick to healthy habits, but I have been eating decently. I commute so I don't need to rely on the cafeteria, and I just eat a turkey sandwich for lunch and avoid eating the unhealthy foods (fried foods, fries, pizza, soda and so on)
Hang in there! The healthier lifestyle will definitely helps you academic life! Good luck

    Keep in mind that pepsi & fast food will not give you the energy you need to get you through this time making better food choices & taking care of yourself will this final year is a tough time with lot of late night studying, clinicals & exams take care of yourself & you will get through it much easier.

Good luck
