Calorie Counting Week 2 Day 2 & 3

I'm sitting here trying to figure out the calories in the food on the happy hour menu at McCormicks because we have plans to go there in a couple hours. I'm kind of debating if it might not be a terrible idea to just scratch this meal from my records and eat what I want. I'm not missing food really. I'm not craving ribs and cheeseburgers. But I kind of don't want to burn out on tracking all of this stuff (and it is starting to get a bit old) and I feel like I deserve a reward that I don't have to put on my spreadsheet.

Doesn't it look healthy and delicious?!

On the other hand I know I'm going to be worried about it. I've been doing so great at keeping this up and writing down everything I eat with as much accuracy as I can muster. I've also done really good at staying in my limits. It's hard to get enough protein every day without going too crazy on the fat. I just don't want to mess up a good thing.

I think I'm going to risk it. The portions are small and I can't set myself back that far. Tomorrow I'll be back on the wagon.

In related news, I reconfigured my excel spreadsheet and it's much fancier now. I even used a formula that I've never used before. I'm hoping that it will be easier to use so that I won't have to spend as much time on it every day, thus making my success more probable. Again, if anyone's interested I'm happy to share!
