I am almost 500 over goal right now for no good reason. I think I better go for a walk.

I have been there, more than once. This is what I like about exercise, besides to become healthier. When I have a high calorie day, including lets say a slice of Cocos Apple pie, I can manage it by exercising more. This may mean walking several more miles for that days exercise routine.

~15000 steps. 8 mile dedicated walk. I accepted the 887 calories and still went over goal today...

2620 calories. I am really not sure why I was so hungry today.

I will weigh in the morning and decide what adjustments to make.

I have made a whopping 473 steps today. I have been trying to stay off of my leg. From time to time, it still can hurt allot. So no exercise today. This makes for my target to be 2090 calories. I have consumed 2121 calories. This includes a hot chocolate at iHob (formerly iHop).

Here is the interesting part. Before I ate dinner, I could not remember if I had lunch. I have skipped it before without realizing what the time was. So in the future, I will need to make entries as soon as I finish a meal. Actually, I should be planning the day in advance. So I have assumed that I did not have any lunch today. No matter how I try to think of the situation, I cannot figure out if I had something for lunch.

PS Now once again my leg is hurting allot. I am trying to stay away from Tylenol. I think this time I must of really messed myself up. If it is the same by Monday, I will see a doctor.

158.2 this morning. Thinking about it more, I think the 159.6 and the 155.4 were outliers; water weight and dehydration. The math of 3500 calories per pound of fat gained or lost is pretty inflexible. I think my weight is somewhere in the middle of my range of 155-160. I think I was a little over the past couple of days, but not 10,500 over; I only had about half that as my total intake. So there is no way I gained 3 pounds.

I may go paddling late today or early tomorrow and limit the logging. I think accepting full amount the last couple of days was letting myself go over, though last night I walked through a spider web and did 2 weeks worth of cardio.

My weight is back down to 174. My leg still hurts, however, I may slow walk some today. I may walk a quarter of a mile and then see what happens.

7+ miles of paddling in wind and waves. Strava awarded ne 1228 calories and I edited it down to 900.

2563 calories. Lots of cookies and some cake plus fruit, grains and protein. No veggies today; need to work on that. I may go have half a cup of sweetened almond milk before turning in for another 30 calories.

I walked 1,495 steps today. I did not exercise, so my target for today is 2,090. I have consumed 2,067 calories. My leg still hurts allot. Maybe I really screwed it up this time. If it does not get better by Monday, I will see my worthless PCP for a referral.

MFP is making an adjustment to my calories burned by 276. I also saw this happen a couple times recently. This is strange. Fortunately, I now just go by the calories burned from exercise, as it is calculated by my watch. I ignore any adjustments made by MFP on my calories burned.

My weight is 174 by just a couple tenths of a pound. Otherwise I would weigh 173. My legs are hurting, so no exercise for today. Also there will be an unusually low step count by the end of the day.

@Tucson - I walked 4.5 miles this morning and mmw gave me 439, which I edited down to 220. But there was another entry - "Under Armor adjustment" of 80 calories. I deleted that. the odd thing is that sometimes it shows up but not always.

I am going to start swimming at the neighborhood pool. I have no idea how to log that unless I keep a lap count. Even then, I don't know how our pool compares to any standard. I can probably find that out. I may just go with time, but effort can vary so much.
