The problem I am having with tracking is that so often the things I eat don't have listed nutritional information anywhere. For example, last night I had shrimp and avocado street tacos at the House of Blues, and I wasn't able to find the information on it anywhere. I ended up choosing a similar looking dish and hoping that their calorie counts were close. Since yesterday was unexpectedly really busy, I wasn't able to prepare something for lunch today and ended up getting a boca burger for lunch. In this case, I had to guess at the bun's nutritional value, since everything else on the burger was listed. I also had a cup of strawberries which I suspect may have had some syrup on them. Either that, or they were just amazingly sweet strawberries. I also had a couple of slices of pizza from my boyfriend's shop for dinner. Their pizzas are thin crust and they use fresh ingredients. My slices had spinach, roasted garlic, and chopped tomato on them, and they were from 16" pizza. But I don't know the caloric value there and again have to guess. I worry that I'm over or underestimating.

Today was a tough day at work. I'm tired, but I still need to get my walk and pilates in before it gets much later. I need to get an armband for my phone before I attempt running.

    When I can't find the exact food, I break it down into the components. I feel pretty sure it's close. I am usually under the calories so even if it's off a bit shouldn't hurt the calorie count by much.
