No excuses--just an analysis. Long story short, I did well eating until after dinner when I found I made an error in pre-logging some meat. The mistake caused me to not plan for enough calories for the day. But then later I also didn't feel like having the protein shake I had logged for an evening snack. So I ate some cheese and a turkey burger patty because I wanted them and was tired of trying to juggle the numbers and portions to make my day's achievement look good. Even with the burger patty and cheese I just barely made my 1200 minimum calories target. Tomorrow is a new day and I will do better.
