We've all had New Year resolutions that we have made, and then maybe dropped in past years. Would anyone like to join me with making a Viz in Tableau Public about their journey for 2024? It can be a weight loss, making healthier nutrition choices, getting fit, or whatever! I think it would help motivate me and I would love to see your Tableau visualizations.
How we can do this? Use an app! I am going to use Lose It. My goal is going to be nutrition and fitness. (I already started two months ago with working out at least 4 times a week.) You can download your data by performing the steps in this article here. My fitness pal also allows for data downloads, article here. You have to pay for a premium account if you want the csv to be emailed to you.
I say let's do this weekly and build your viz in Tableau Public and have our first check in on January 15th! That way you have at least two weeks of data. The post a link to it using social media with the hashtag #newyearnewyouviz I will post a blog article on January 31st with links and pics of content for users that have created something!
If you forget a day, don't beat yourself up. Just go back and log it. Or log the next day. I think this would be a fun challenge if we can get a community involved.
Let's do something with our data! Let's calculate how many gallons of coffee we drink a year. Or how much did you exercise in a month? If your goal is focused on weight loss, what was your rate of weight loss per day, per month? If your goal is fitness, how many more miles did you run this month compared to last month etc.
I would love to hear your ideas and see what visualizations you come up with. Feel free to send me a message on Linkedin or X about this!
