With all the ST I have been doing, I really needed to up the protein. I have had a hard time meeting my SP nutritional range for protein already (usually falling far below the low side). So, today I did a 45 min Zumba workout & was determined to get in a good amount of protein. Wow, it takes careful planning to get lots of protein without lots of calories!! Here is my nutrition tracker so far for today:

What I am really excited about is dinner. I had 2 frozen tilapia fillets, thawed in hot water, seasoned with creole & cooked in the oven for 10 min. I had a side of green peas with it.
As you can see from the tracker, dinner was 266 cals, 13 g carbs, 2 g fat, 47 g protein. SO YUMMY & SO EASY! Between thawing & cooking, it took a total of 15 minutes.

Tilapia is also one of the cheaper fish. I bought a big bag of frozen fillets at the grocery store for $10.
Now I've got at LEAST 200 more calories I need to take in, but I am currently stuffed from dinner. It's only 6:45pm, so I've got some time.
Oh, and my feet are super sore. When I did my workout today, I didn't think about the fact that up until now I've only done the 20 min workouts. I always Zumba barefoot (easier to move around that way), so 45 min of barefoot twisting and shaking and I've rubbed my feetsies raw! So I lotioned up my feet & then put on super soft socks. I feel better now.
In other news, I really need some sunshine. Can I be there, please? Oh, pretty please?
