A non-running blog, it must be about eating then....

So over the last two weeks I've gone to see an intern at my gym that has a background in nutrition. I have been finding myself hungry all the time, with headaches and just overall not happy, and still not losing weight. She gave me a plan last week.
So this week I have decided to really go for the meal plan my nutritionist-in-training told me. The goal is to bulk up my meals and snacks so that I have more energy to work out harder and can therefore burn more calories. I also really need to watch what I am eating. I hit some of the Easter candy hard (YUM!) and need to get back on track. I know eating lots of junk makes me feel less active and can give me a headache (much like not eating enough) therefore I shouldn't do it (poor yummy bunny....). Knowing something and following through can be TWO very different things :).
But for Monday this is what I have to eat:
0.5 C bulgur, 1 egg, 2 egg whites, .25 c blueberries, .5 tbsp honey
1C non fat yogurt, .5 C strawberries, .05 oz almonds, 0.5 tbsp honey
5oz grilled chicken breast, 50 oz avocado, .5 c kidney beans, two lettuce leaves romaine (to make the wraps), 1C sugar snap peas, .5 C bean sprouts.
1tb PB, two bread slices (don't quite know what to do with the extra bread slice....)
Post Workout snack:
1C skim milk, 1C pineapple
5oz chicken, 1C basanti Rice (cooked), 1c cabbage, 1c other veggie
So about 1950 calories total. Approximately 32% protein, 21% fat and 42% carbs. (no that isn't 100%, but it is getting to late to recalculate it).
And for now, I am going to bed, please ignore any type-os it is past my usual bedtime.
