Analyse what I eat for a week

I have been practicing some sort of sporting activity longer than I can remember, and averaging about 4000 minutes of exercise per month, I do not feel that I need to worry about obesity. However, since I am a vegetarian and rather lazy when it comes to cooking, I have been worried that I do not get enough energy to optimise the outcome of my training. Thus, I decided to write down what and how much I eat during a normal week.

Combined with this, I have also spent many hours researching topics related to training and nutrition in order to be able to assess to what extent I manage to fulfill my needs. The result is fairly positive in that I seem to get about as much of everything as I should, even though the input of carbohydrates is too high. I was worried about not getting enough protein, but fish and milk, which I do consume, provide what I need. The only problem is directly after a demanding session, when I ought to get much more protein than I do now (hardly none, in fact). Here is an approximation of average consumption for last week:

Energy: 12100 kJ/day
Protein: 115 g/day
Carbohydrates: 367 g/day
Fat: 95 g/day

Conclusively, recording food consumption does not really bother me. I thought it would be an extra pressure and that it would feel bad, but it does not. Since I am very interested in getting results from my training, I intend to go on recording what I eat in the future. I will not be as meticulous as I have been this week (weighing everything), but approximating intake should be something that comes more naturally the longer I do it. Perhaps I will do a more in-depth analysis another time, but for now, I am satisfied.
