A-Ha! Or DUH! is more like it.

It occurred to me tonight that I'm eating very close to my calculated daily burn most of the time.
In the past I carefully noted my calories in/out in my Excel tracker and then reviewed trends and made adjustments. I think that habit fell to the side and was forgotten during one of my ultra-crazy phases.
I'm still tracking but I'm not reviewing. I'm not analyzing (this is darn embarrassing!). I'm not reflecting on this part of it. I've had a feeling I was missing something but I thought it was just my scaled-back Spark time.
The good news is that I have the information needed to catch up and I'm motivated to see the results to help me understand my calorie requirements. I'm still hanging out from 1/2 to 3 pounds above my lowest weight depending on hormones and salt for the most part and this is going to help.
I think this information was one of my keys to success in the past and I expect some motivation to kick myself in gear.

PS - quick foot/running update. After confirming I am not to run until the foot is better and then navigating a long line of red-tape I have everything needed to start PT.
