Track # of sleep hours each night. It's one of the most overlooked metrics that has substantial effect on your energy and health. Shoot for an average of 6-7 hours & make it a priority to rest when your body needs it

Resting heart rate is an important one, to keep it low requires exercising, keeping stress levels reasonable, eating relatively healthy food, and not drinking excessively

Digestion is a huge health indicator. Did you know 70% of your immune system is located in your gut? You should be passing bowel movements AT LEAST once a day - but better off with two. They should be medium soft and brown 💩. If hard or runny - could be an indicator of some health issues.

Weight

Good input thanks.... Resting heart rate, sleep, weight, water intake (I do .5 body weight in Oz.), binary pencil lead, all trackable daily. Blood pressure and 5k (for me anyways) little more planning needed. BMI - curious how you track that @ACN1?

It’s just another measure of weight really, so the simple answer is “weight”. I have very specific fitness hobbies that are very measurable

I have regular check ins to see if I'm dead or not

How fast I can run 1 mile, a 5K, how many push-ups I can do, pull ups, skin fold fat test
