Hey guys!! 
thank you so much for all of your supportive words and helpful advice!!
I will definitely put them to use... my mom already bought lots of the stuff you all told me about and is sending me a care package. 

Tonight, some of the girls and I went out to Outback Steak House. A lot of the time I would normally eat something before I went, but since we went strait from rehearsal, I was hoping they would have something for me...but at a STEAK HOUSE?! I wasnt so convinced,,, but I still wanted to go out with I went...thinking I was going to eat some lettuce and tomato.

THEY HAD SOMETHING FOR ME!!! I had grilled vegetables, with grilled pineapple and multigrain rice... HOW GREAT!!! totally hit the spot. I also had them bring me a sweet potato (with the skin on it)

Rehearsal has been ok. We have been learning so much, and its sort of overwhelming. My body is sore, but I have been ice bathing so its really helping. (Yes... we sit in huge horse troughs of Ice water... usually between 48-50 degrees for 10 minutes after rehearsal) I dont have many blisters, but I do tape my feet every day and make sure I really take care of them...there is nothing worse than getting a bad blister.. and having to shove your food into a pair of heels and dance in them for 6 hours! UGH
(pic of my feet from last year all taped up... and a huge bruise from jumping on my food with a heel on)

So i wanted to say thank you again for all of your advice... I cant wait to try some of the suggestions and I plan on staying completely vegan while I am "on Stage!"

till tomorrow...your favorite Rockette...*

Hooray for finding something to eat at Outback Steakhouse, and for staying vegan while dancing (hey, if I can do it, you can do it!! haha).

Good for you! I am glad you are staying vegan, we need you on our side, so when you are famous you can spread the vegan word! Hehe! :)

Yea! I'm so glad your mom is sending a care package. And great news about Outback! I may not have to say no the next time my boyfriend tries to convince me to eat there with him.

Ouch! My soccer coach once told me that "pain is temporary, pride is forever".
Good job finding vegan food at a steakhouse; I've always found staff at meat-centric venues quite helpful actually.
