Day 2

Today I decided to start my day off with a banana and a glass of water. I only had a banana because I was going to be dancing shortly after this, and if I eat too much before, I feel somewhat sick.

*This was good to tie me over during my morning workout (2 hours of dance class)

After dance was when I had my real breakfast- oatmeal :) This time I mixed some organic oats with one scoop of whey protein powder to help me refuel after my morning work out, as well as prepare me for some more dancing

*This was very filling and supplied me with a very good amount of the protein I needed that day

protein; 24 g

Before my next round of dancing, I had a larabar just as a last minute boost for my next class.

*The new flavor was delicious, however, the only thing that turns me off to larabars are that they are not organic, but I can live with it.

protein; 4 g

Along with my larabar, I also had a deliciously crispy red apple :)

I then had one more hour of dance class and decided to head out to dinner with some of my friends; the majority rule was chipotle. Although it is very delicious, it's not the best nutrition wise. I tried to stay healthy and had a vegetarian burrito bowl consisting of rice, black beans, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce. It was to die for.I didn't get a snap shot of it but I did calculate the calories at a cool website I found via google.
calories; 525
protein; 13 g

As you can tell, this was my splurge for the day. However I needed this because after dinner I went back to dance for 2 more hours. I didn't get home until around 10:30, so I didn't eat anything else. I was satisfied and ready for a well deserved nights rest :)

Day 1

I decided to start off my day with some oatmeal. I used 1/2 cup of Quaker Oats, 1/2 cup of water, and 1/4 cup of Syntha-6 chocolate peanut butter protein powder.

total calories; 250
protein; 16 g
*This oatmeal protein mix was very good fuel for the run I took shortly after eating and also kept me very full.

My run burned off 252 calories so I needed to refuel! I threw some vegetables from an Organic vegetable mix from Costco into a pan and heated them up. Along with the mixed vegetables I had a side of 1/2 cup of Lima Beans.

*This meal was nice and refreshing after my run, it kept me full but not stuffed; still feeling light and ready to go.
calories; 210

A few hours later my stomach was grumbling so I decided to have 1 cut up red apple and 2 tablespoons of Organic peanut butter for a mid-day snack

*This was delicious and very satisfying to help hold me over.
calories; 280
protein; 7 g

I then went to a going away party for a friend of mine and ate some fruit, 2 crackers, and 2 shrimp. I estimated my calories to be roughly around 200 being that I stayed strong from eating any of the many, delicious, and very tempting deserts. (cup cakes, cookies, brownies, cannolis, cheesecake, etc)
*This little snack was great in holding me over until dinner

When I got back, I made myself a salad with 1/8 cup of sunflower seeds, about 20 calories worth of broccoli, and balsamic vinaigrette over a 5 mix lettuce blend. Sadly, I didn't get a snap shot of the salad before I devoured it, but I did have the time to equate out the calories.
calories; 175

Roughly an hour after my salad, I was still hungry.. so I grabbed a delicious apple and was done for the day :)

I hate apples if you couldn't tell..
