Query UPDATE report

I have a script that updates a database.  It updates about 100 field from information that is being parsed from a feed.  What type of query code would I need to write so that the UPDATE that ran would report to me the fields that were updated?

How about this?
$q = "UPDATE exp_weblog_data SET field_id_29='$field_id_29', field_id_30='$field_id_30', field_id_31='$field_id_31'  WHERE field_id_215='$field_id_215'"; 

if ($return = mysql_query($q, $yourconnection))
{
	send yourself an email;
)

Do you know how to send email in PHP? You could include the values you updated if you want to see them.
