Yay for low weigh ins!

So sorry I had no update for you last night. Aaron ended up staying the night and I got very tired around 11 pm, so I decided to call it a night.

Before dance class I didn't have much to eat. Before my 8 am class I had some coffee with creamer (20 cal) and 2 oz. of yogurt (60 cal). After lit class though I was starving. My stomach was going to eat itself, and I know that's not much of an excuse, but I had a snack of banana and peanut butter (285 cal).
And then after dance class I weighed myself...123.25! Woah! Very happy with that number. =)
And y'all know what I do after I see a low number...I eat. Although yesterday I thought I kept it fairly low. I grabbed some tomato basil soup (155 cal), a small spinach salad with ranch (90 cal), a blueberry crisp pastry (110 cal), and a small brownie (55 cal). Plus there were misc bites of things throughout the day (75 cal). So my intake for the day was 925 calories, but the 300 I burned in dance and 230 I burned in the gym brings my net total to 395 calories.

That wasn't even the best part of my day. I've really been itching to talk to my dance teacher about trying out for the university dance team and where she thinks I'm at in terms of technique. Her opinion means a lot because those tryouts in the fall were brutal and I since then I've been weary about my ability to dance, but she told me to definitely go for it. She also told me that I needed to take harder classes (even though, unlike this quarter, she won't be the one teaching them next term, just jazz I) and tossed around the idea of me being her assistant for jazz I in the fall. I can't tell you how ecstatic I was. I'm pretty sure I've written a post detailing my experience on my high school dance team, but I can't find it right now. Long story short: I feel like when it came to leadership and recognition of ability myself and a few other girls were basically jipped. I pretty much worked my ass off on the team and desperately wanted to be captain blah blah blah you know how stories like this go. I'm just really happy she didn't tell me I wasn't ready for something like this. And now I'm really excited for both cheer and dance tryouts. :D

As for today, I had a little home made parfait thing with plain yogurt, blue berries, banana, and peach. I'll calculate the calories for it later. Off to catch up on posts!
