Collecting Self Data

“Self Data” is my term for any data set that I collect about myself.  From financial statements, to trips to the bathroom to how much each meal costs, they are all data sets that have interesting patterns.

An extra special data set I have are the results of my VO2 test that helps my track my fitness level.  From the first test to the second test, I about doubled my caloric burn rate and dropped my VO2 max by 15%.  I had made great strides in terms of fitness. 

This is why tomorrow morning’s test is so exciting to me.  How much further have I improved over the past year?   Can’t wait to see the impact of my behavior on this metric.
