do you really count?? do we really count??

Whatever it is that you count, or spark. Do we really do it right? I am sure that most of us are off by a few calories daily.
Sometimes I know for a fact I am off by 100, and some days I know that I am off by even more.
Yesterday for example, I forgot to spark a sweet tea I had purchased in the supermarket and drank on the way home.
Completely forgot about it.
Today, I had a couple of spoonfuls of rice, and had forgot to spark it with my dinner.
So, it just got me to thinking, I added probably 200 calories to my daily intake.
I spark around 1300 a day, but in reality, most days I might be taking in up to 300 more.
So, should I cut my spark calorie limit to 1000??? For the ones I forget to spark?
I know I am eating way too many calories.
And breaking down my calories by meal, I see I am getting most of my calories in my latest meal of the day.
I feel I should change that and get my bigger amount of calories midday and less for dinner and leave calories for my snack.
That way I am not going over my calories later in the day.
Of course, that is the rational persons way of thinking and if one followed that, might be a good plan.
My fear is, I will eat all the calories for lunch, then still end up eating more later in the day so I end up going over anyway.
I exercised today, had a decent little workout.
Wonder just how many of those extra calories I even burned.
My guess, not that many.
But at least I am aware.
