I've got an appointment with my GP on Saturday: get results of testosterone bloodwork; find out what's involved in getting tested for mercury and maybe dioxins (I've been eating a lot of salmon); check on the status of my visit to an ophthalmologist (and if that's not coming along, see if I can just hit up an optometrist); and get myself put on a waiting list to see an orthopedic surgeon. If any of you know any tricks to get bumped up to the head of the line, please let me know.
Calipers and tape measure have arrived, and there was much rejoicing.
I have until the camera arrives to decide on exactly what information I track, and how I'm going to track it.
The photos will probably just get dumped to disk in sequential order . Hopefully the camera will give them valid last-modified dates.
Caliper and tape measurements can go in a spreadsheet - maybe two, if I do both morning and evening.
Same with the various scale-given information.
Training log will be informal, given that variations in multiple parameters don't really make for good graphing.
I might log when I get to/out of bed, and maybe the spread between my alarm going off and me actually getting up. More for accountability than anything.
That leaves food. Calories, fat, fiber, other carbs and protein are obviously necessary, and they can go in a day-by-day spreadsheet as well. Might have to hack something up to generate those bits from daily food tallies, given that my database-fu is weak right now.
I'll think about it over the weekend.

Well, it's begun. Camera arrived last night. Started tracking:
-Front/side arms out/down photos
-The output of both scales
-Hip pointer skinfold
-Daily calories/fat/carbs/fiber/protein intake
Been debating whether or not to use the camera's flash for the body composition shots. I'm probably screwing up a lot of stuff here, but that's the cost of having to come up with things on the fly.

Is it community editable? If so we could all contribute to the food information....

how much money will you have to pay for all these appointments with health professionals and any tests you had or will have done under a health care system thats not socialised?
if you are having trouble with the knowledge these professional have shouldn't you be targeting the education system from which they were taught and not the environment from which they practice?

I eat only fresh eggs from my parents chickens. An ENTIRELY different taste from the storebought stuff. And extremely delicious.
