If I weren’t tracking things, I’d have even more of a revisionist view of where I’ve come from and the challenges ahead.
Morning measurements. I use a bluetooth scale, a bluetooth blood pressure cuff, a bluetooth glucose monitor, and a sleep app on my Apple Watch.
The watch tracks my fitness as well.
|Hours of deep sleep
Tracking on the iphone
- Eat ample amounts within 5–8 hour period.

I’m not tracking my food
It’s too much mental energy to track what I eat every day. I’m already overly focussed on tracking stuff.
Measurements motivate me
I’m working towards being able to bike 160 miles. I want to do the bike ride in fourteen hours (with stops) without feeling wiped out. That’s my specific goal.
The more important benefits
I want to be able to row in a double without feeling sore. I want to keep up with strong cyclists for a morning ride. I want to be effective in my work and at home. I want to be present for people when I need to be.
