What is the daily PMD?

The daily PMD (Plus, side effects
Minus, Delta) is a way of tracking my behaviors in a day that I thought were  good and bad as well as what I would change (the delta).

My hope is that by keeping track of these I will develop better habits and make incremental improvements in my day to day living – hopefully as a healthier, happier person.

The daily is really simple, here is an example:

P – Plus

  • only 2 cups of black coffee in the entire day
  • 2 eggs and lentils for breakfast

M – Minus

  • Bought my lunch at work

D – Delta (Change)

  • get to sleep before 10pm
  • write a to-do list for the next day prior to going to sleep


The great thing about the Daily PMD is it can be customized to track whatever you like – you can use it to make improvements in what you are eating, how you are exercising or organizing your life – It is up to you!

A 30 something father of three, trying to get back on the path to better health and I figure going public (even if no one is reading) is the best way to stay true to that goal. Over the past couple of years my priorities have been renovating the house and learning to be a dad. Now, I am hoping that by getting back in to shape I will improve my energy levels, allowing me to accomplish even more.
