Journal entry for 7/10/15

I did not get to complete yesterday's blog entry because I fell asleep.  I was just too knocked out to complete any blog, much less add a blog entry.  Lately I have been struggling to consume healthier foods, and I take full responsibility.  I have to do a better job of counting carbs, not just counting calories.  I do consume too many processed foods and not enough fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.  My potassium levels are always too low yet the calories I take in are too high.  I am doing better when it comes to the calories I take in, but how do I reconcile the health benefits of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains and consume the calories that I so need to lose weight and to burn? My goal is to consume 1400-2000 calories per day.  Should I change my goal or not?
