BIOMETRICS are measurements of the body. Weight, temperature, blood pressure, and waist size are common biometrics.
Creating journals for biometrics is straightforward. Use the “Title” field to enter the name of your biometric. Enter something in the “Description” field if appropriate. Create amount “Attribute(s)” to specify the measurement(s). Sometimes you might also use other attributes to capture related information.
If a biometrics is to be measured regularly, you can also enter a schedule.
Here are some examples:
In this example “Weight” has been entered in the Title field. One amount Attribute has been created, specifying a name of “Weight” and a unit of “lbs”.
The images below show the main “Weight” journal screen, the screen describing the amount attribute, and an entry screen for this journal:
Blood Pressure & Pulse
Blood pressure readings consist of two numbers, often written as a ratio (for example 120/80). The first number is the systolic blood pressure, and the second number is the diastolic blood pressure. The pulse rate is almost always noted at the same time.
In this example, “Blood Pressure & Pulse” has been entered in the Title field. A reminder to “Relax and sit comfortably” has been entered in the Description field. Three amount Attributes have been created for the Systolic, Diastolic, and Pulse readings, with appropriate units.
The images show the main “Blood Pressure & Pulse” journal screen, the screens showing how the three attributes are described, and an entry screen for this journal.
Blood glucose level is measured using a glucometer. Often, the context of the reading (upon waking, after a meal, etc.) is also noted.
In this example, “Blood Glucose” has been entered in the Title field. Two attributes have been created. The first is an amount attribute, with a name of “Glucometer reading” and a unit of “mmol/L”. The second is a list attribute, with choices “Morning wake up”, etc.
The images show the main “Blood Glucose” journal screen, the screens showing how the two attributes are described, and an entry screen for this journal.
Many use a measuring tape to track the progress of their diet or fitness plans.
In this example, “Body Measurements” has been entered in the Title field. And five attributes have been created for Neck, Bust, Chest, Waist and Hips measurements.
The images show the main “Body Measurements” journal screen, a screen showing how the Neck attribute has been described (the other attributes are similar), and an entry screen for this journal.
