Measure to Accomplish

Tracking dietary, performance and sleep metrics is a very new concept to me. The rigid requirement has always been a turn off and the amount of work required makes consistency hard. Starting slow, tracking my sleep has been helpful and now taking notes on performance metrics has shown to be helpful in visualizing my growth.

In depth measuring is what’s next. Tracking testosterone levels, ketones, glucose, food, sleep, fasting, cognitive performance, etc.

Key Performance Metrics

  • Water. Upon waking up drink 2 glasses of water.
  • Protein intake.
  • Carbohydrate intake (minimal) much of which will come from vegetables.
  • Body metrics: Testosterone levels, etc.
    • Scheduling a physical first two weeks of January.
  • Sleep. Finding optimal level of sleep where I’m not drowsy from over/under sleeping. I speculate that I’m around that 8-9 hour range. However, the lower I can bring this down to the more beneficial it will be for me. At the moment, my business is growing rapidly and my motivation to grow my business is increasing. The more time I have for working, fitness, and my hobbies while improving the quality of my sleep is a net benefit.
  • Cognitive performance. Since the beginning of the pandemic my cognitive performance saw a huge drop, I speculate from my high carbohydrate diet and minimal exercise routine. I have in the past few months taken my exercise routine more seriously. I’m down 15 pounds yet have hit a plateau at 208-210 pounds. My cognitive levels or ability has improved a lot. However, I don’t believe that I’m yet anywhere where I was before. Getting back on a high protein, fat and minimal carbohydrate diet while increase my exercise to two hours a day will improve my overall cognition and mental performance.
