Days until next shop: 5 (📅 February 13th 2022) with 3,674kj carry-over.

I finally spreadsheeted (spreadedsheet?) this, and found a 180kj undercount in the manual addition, which I’ve fixed and backdated. From here on, the computer will ensure accuracy.

Reflections after the fold.

37MJ, stock levels had some winners, some losers, again.

So the Fitness Outcomes and pre-coooked eggs are back in stock, so I bought a lot (eight of each). The trade-off was that the supermarket was out of the high-protein Special K I’ve been getting, so it’s a half-load of cereal.

The reason I put the spreadsheet together is I still have a concerniningly-large amount of stuff left from my last shop, so I suspected I’d misplaced a day. As it happens, I had misplaced 180kj, and a mistake in a formula on the spreadsheet meant that for a short time, I did appear to have gone shopping a day early.

Luckily, I caught the mistake before this secretly became Project 6000.

Looking at the spreadsheet now, I reckon I could make a form that auto-populates the header-thing I’ve been using. I’m not going to (today) but I know I could.

Anyway, I am glad to know that I didn’t mess up the project, and that I did find a small manual mistake, doubly-justifying putting this into a spreadsheet.

And an observation I’m not sure what to do with: Ignoring the two weeks where I had a take-away meal, my shopping size has been steadily declining in kj total, even though I don’t feel like I’m coming back with less-full bags. In fact, I feel like my bags are more-full each time, as I have less room for drinks and non-food items in each trip. This is all subjective though, and through the fog of recollection. After all, I haven’t proved that my bags aren’t shrinking.

I’m not sure if this means I’m getting more kj-efficient (decreasing calorie density), but there’s some kind of trend here. Perhaps next Project 7000 (non-shopping) update I’ll put up a gallery and make a visual comparison. Barring other news or changes, I expect that’ll be a weigh-in at the end of February.
