I ate only whole foods for a week. It was enjoyable, and I felt good. But, it is very difficult for me to completely change my eating habits while in nursing school. I need to take time to find meal ideas, and cook them, and plan ahead. And I don't have a lot of extra time to do that. It kind of felt like a job. (maybe in december when this semester is over I can devote some time to this)
However....there are things I learned. I can try to make healthier choices when I am stressed. One thing I liked about my week on whole foods, was that I ate less sugar. Actually not much sugar at all. Then came 2 days at the hospital for clinicals followed by an big exam, and BAM...all bets were off. So, I think I can start with smaller things, like sugar. OR managing my stress better.
So, that is how I will approach this. I will reach my goal on somewhat "whole" healthy foods and exercise! :)
