Current Progress

Saturday, February 7, 2009


I love the Web 2.0 world of free/cheap tools such as blogger, google docs, facebook, smugmug, yelp and such. I'm not sure how they all actually make money but while they figure it out, I might as well take advantage of it.

The one thing I've been evaluating are sites that track your exercise, food, weight. I have yet to find one that perfectly suits my needs of quickly entering what I ate and what I did to find the calories consumed, calories burned and any other stats I might want. So far, the easiest one to use is Gyminee. I like the community aspect of it and the content and features has grown a lot since I had used it last. That being said, the more like-minded people join the site, the more likely some of my recipes and food will already be there so that I don't have to painstakingly enter each in each ingredient. I do like how convenient adding water and food is. The pretty graphs and 2.0-ish GUI doesn't hurt either.

Other ones like (corporate site),, only had my patience for a few days. I found it tedious to search and add food or the GUI was not intuitive or it just didn't have what I wanted.

If you guys have any suggestions let me know.
