travelling rhymes

To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, jiggety jig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again, jiggety jog.

No, I didn't buy any pork recently. But I am home again, and "jiggedy jog" jumped to mind. As did "jiggedy jig". And I had forgotten the rest of the rhyme, so I was distressed - jig? jog?

I'm pleased to find that both are correct.

Speaking of "jog" - I've once again found my treadmill. Once again attempting to apply downward pressure on that number on the bathroom scale - as opposed to merely wishing it down, which hasn't worked very well. I'm contemplating setting up a web app that will track my progress and make automatic posts. Or maybe an RSS feed, so that friends that are interested in tracking such progress can hold me accountable.

Then again, there may well already be something out there that people are already using and love. Anybody?

What a great idea. In post-baby land, I'm working hard on getting that number down, and I'd be interested in hearing about whatever you find out there! And, of course, in lending support to your own efforts. :)

FitDay can be handy.

Does FitDay require me to be good about keeping track of food? I expect that's something I'm not yet ready for.

My ideal tool would allow me to provide my weight goal, track my weight, and perhaps enter calorie expenditure and times exercising.

Maybe that's not enough to be a really useful tool, maybe I need the tool to say "It's time to cut back on the cheesecake habit".

A while ago, I was using "America On The Move" http://www.americaonthemove.org/ which tracks your exercising (walking, running, gardening) and converts it to fictional miles. There's a little bit of accountability built in - you can track your friends' progress and compare your progress with the average user, but there's not as much specific feedback as I'd like. Or projections like "At this rate, you might make this target weight by this date".

Which may not be really helpful - I'm sure it's hard to do projections like that well, and a bad projection might not be a good thing.
