30-day tracking project: Days 4 and 5

As usual there is quite a learning curve to my project. The biggest one currently is managing all of the data and learning how to organize it. Because I didn’t have computer access yesterday, not only was I forced to deal with more data, but I was also able to much more easily compare the two days. My thought is to spend the rest of this week in this most basic tracking, and then start more carefully watching consumption and other metrics of interest–making it more interesting, if this is at all interesting, for you.  Here are the totals:

    how hard would it be to track itches, scratches, and awkward moments.
