Daytum: my annual report is 1/12 complete

At the very beginning on January I mentioned that, as well as maintaining a blog, I wanted to record aspects of my life over the course of the year. I had been playing around with the idea for a while and then, thanks to Boagworld, heard about Nicolas Felton and his annual reports. I decided to give it a go for myself and I’m happy to say I’ve managed to stick with it for a whole month so far!

Thanks to Daytum, the “home for collecting and communicating your daily data”, its been easy to keep track of things. Along side Felton’s Daytum I’ve also been using Dopplr and good old Google Docs. I’ve been surprised by most of the numbers but none more than the amount of caffeine and alcohol I consume in a month, thank goodness I didn’t start recording until New Years day!


Here’s how January turned out.

A short summary

  • In January I averaged 3.5 caffeinated drinks a day, accompanied by 2 alcoholic beverages.
  • Decaffeinated non-alcoholic drinks only accounted for 35% of my total liquid intake.
  • I slept for just over 201 hours which means I only get an average of 6 hours a night.
  • I ran 43.5 miles, an average of 1.4 miles each day and the distance between Reading and London.
  • I only managed to fit in one 10 mile bike ride.
  • My travel, which included 2 flights, generated 282kg CO2.
  • I watched 8 films.
