First, there is no reason to eat protein bars and drink protein shakes if you are eating well-rounded meals and snacks throughout the day that meet your nutritional needs. It is always best to get your nutrition through food rather than through supplements and protein bars and shakes are supplements. So think about your reasoning behind that.

Second, is this a plan that you can sustain for life? If it's not, then let's rethink this plan altogether and figure out something that makes sense for you to be able to sustain over time.

Third, I'm not quite understanding the fitness plan. I think you have rest days in there, but I can't really tell. It is very important to include 1-2 rest days between strength workouts (and high intensity cardio workouts) because your body needs time to repair and recover.

I would recommend reviewing these two guides to help you get a better understanding of a well-rounded program in general, especially being that you are a teenager and still developing:
