If I were you, I would keep a food journal. It's free and you can record every aspect of your nutritional intake including protein, carbs, fats, calories etc. All that is required is that you read food labels and/or buy a calorie counter. Knowing what you're currently consuming will allow you to plan much better than guessing.
Sites like myfitnesspal.com (which I use) have exercise logs which you can use to track amount of calories burned. Maybe you should check one of those out. Edit: As mentioned in @rrirower answer, food logging is equally important. Sites like www.noom.com or myfitnesspal.com have both food and exercise logging.
