I will be starting the BScN program at my local college next month and I decided that it's about time I eat healthy and get fit. I've been eating rather healthy meals each day and have been doing cardio an hour a day. (I will soon introduce weight lifting next week)
I've never felt better and I have notice a change in the amount of information I can retain and my overall well being. Definitely is a great idea to eat healthy and to stay healthy especially while in nursing school.
