Quantified Self

Recently I discovered there was a term for collecting all sorts of data on devices and measuring your performance gains over time. I mean, I work with one Paul Cartmel, possibly the king of gadgets and measurement. When I went through the process of losing 8kg a few years back, I tracked my calories, progress and weight, I wrote down how I felt when I woke each day and tracked my training as well. The project was a success because of this, I am sure.

So now, Quantified Self is a great way to explain all this behavior. The video gives an intro to that and I wanted to drop you some resources if that was your thing, well, because I have a hunch there are more than just a few people who read this blog who would fit into this “box”.
