I tracked my food for a couple of weeks to see which meals were what calories. Rather than change the recipe, I have been eating smaller portions of the calorific dense foods. I found that I was making a meal that was for 4 people, and eating a 1/3 to 1/2 of it. So just becoming aware of portion sizes helped me to get into the calorie range.

Thank you. Daily activities, none really. I'm a stay at home mom. My daily activities consist of household chores, some of the 5/6 minute videos I find here on SP and I make it a point to go for a mile walk everyday.
Go out to your dinner, check the menu/website ahead of time and select a healthy--yet fulfilling meal Yes, you may be over your range for the day. Then for the next several days---eat at the lower end of your calorie range. Take the average for the 7 days and you will probably be within your calorie range.
In the future it can help to set a calorie amount for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Then you can plan ahead and know the number to be "around" for each meal and snack.

So I was going over my food tracker and I think I over did it at breakfast. I put in my lunch and am already at 1000 calories and I know for a sure I will be eating out tonight. Almost makes me want to NOT EAT DINNER!!! Can someone please help me out and give me a guideline as to what kind of combinations I should have at breakfast. Today was, scrambled egg w/cayenne pepper, yogurt w/almonds, slice of whole grain bread toasted w/tbsp PB and small banana. WOW, just typing that is making think it was a lil too much. I guess I was just thinking "ok, protein packed breakfast" because I knew I would be going on a 3 mile walk. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
