Might as well start one on here so I can get some advice from the experts.

Body Fat%- Could someone help with figure this one out?

I started counting my calories a couple days ago.

01/22- 2700 Calories, 130 Protein (This is without a protein shake. I will begin taking the protein this weekend because I don't have it yet.)
01/23- 2600 Calories, 115 Protein
01/24- 3100 Calories, 135 Protein
01/25- 2100 Calories, 100 Protein

I went to Gold's Gym a few days ago to talk to the employee. I will be starting at the beginning of February and I plan on doing one of the workout routines I found on here.
I consider myself a very active person. I am outside everyday either playing sports or working. I have been doing push-ups, crunches, and curls every night since I set this goal for myself.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I have been slacking on the calories in the last couple of days, but I hope to be averaging 3000+ soon once I can get into the eating all day long thing.
I get plenty of exercise in everyday, whether it be working or playing sports, so I know I am going to have to pick up the calories in order to put on some weight that I can turn into muscle.

01/26 2300 Cals, 105 Protein
01/27 1900 Cals, 90 Protein
01/28 2000 Cals, 105 Protein

When I begin going to the gym and lifting, I plan on having my protein intake in the 200-250 range.
