Okay, you have your protein goal set at 180 grams, which is completely unnecessary. 1g per lb of lean body mass (or 0.6-0.8g per lb of ideal/goal weight) is a general rule of thumb for setting protein minimum. So if you're 70g under on what you currently have it set as, you're actually fine. Conversely, your fat, at 45g, while fine is at the lower end. You could increase that if you wanted - 0.25-0.45g per lb of ideal weight is a good guideline for this. Them just let carbs fall where they may according to preference - ie if you find more fat and/or protein keeps you more satiated, it's fine to eat more of those and fewer carbs.
At the end of the day, calories are what dictate weight loss/gain. Macros are more about personal preference (what keeps you satisfied, and therefore sticking to your calorie goal) and fitness goals, eg fuelling cardio, strength training, etc.

Protein is way over done. 50g of protein per day is really all you need unless you are body building.

most days look ok, but drop the olive oil and use a cooking spray instead, drop the almond butter and use pb2 or pbfit if you need to have a nut spread... protein bars can help fill in gaps too, low fat milk in your protein shakes... youll figure it out but its not a huge deal.
