Possible to post time to JIRA using Excel?

I am using Excel 2013 to track my time throughout the day using a timer.  At the end of the day or week, I would like to post my time from Excel to JIRA issues or subtasks.  We are on JIRA 7.2.0.  I have all the necessary data in Excel (JIRA issue key, etc.).  Is it possible to do this using Excel VBA and the JIRA REST API?  I looked at the API Reference and it seems the only resource that comes close is the api/2/issue resource with the Add or Update Worklog method.  But the parms available only add/update the Estimate field.  The fields we have to post time to seem to be custom fields (e.g. Date, Worked (hrs), Remaining Estimate (hrs), Description, Incident #, Market).

Anyone know of a way?
