ActiveAugust started as a discussion on Twitter and Mike Walsh (@mike_walsh) has set the bar with his blog post about it. The general idea is to commit to lifestyle changes by becoming more active and/or eating healthier. The key thing is to setup a plan, blog your plan, and then blog/tweet updates on how you are doing. Because you have made the commitment public you will have some accountability. There are several SQL Server “personalities” that are taking part including the aforementioned Mike Walsh, Brian Kelley (@kbriankelley), and Jorge Segarra (@SQLChicken). There may be others that I have missed or don’t currently follow on Twitter.
Here’s my plan:
Another part is a regular weigh-in as the goal is to become more fit and weight loss is usually a good measure of that. I weighed in yesterday morning at 184.5 lbs so that will be my baseline. I’ll post my progress weekly starting the 8th.
Hope you join in.
