Hope everyone is doing well!
It might be too late now but maybe in the future, when I make something from scratch, I make a list of all of the ingredients, weigh/measure exactly how much I add in and look up the calorie count for each ingredient. Then I add up all of those calories, measure how much the combined result is and divide that to figure out the calories in each portion. Does that make sense? I use a dry erase marker on my tupperware and write down what it is, how much a portion is and how many calories are in each portion, so I don't forget!

I definitely made up for my low day yesterday :| 1299/1200 and that's before I have more coffee (and I will have more coffee!), but I had a really good workout this morning - 30 minutes of yoga + an hour of cardio. I don't normally eat my burned calories, but I was HUNGRY today, so eh.
