The pace of posting has slowed down around here lately for a perfectly good reason: blogging was ruining my health. OK, a bit of an overstatement but I decided back in August to forgo my morning workout and concentrate on blogging like a fiend for a few months to get some attention, find an audience, etc.

Now the doctor says it’s time to get my fanny back on the Stairmaster. Last month the doctor’s office called to remind me I was due for a cholesterol test, which I dutifully submitted to a few days later. The test has a particular piece of data that measures a) time not spent exercising; and b) how much sweets/snacks/booze is in your diet. I failed that baby with flying colors.

So, one of those hours I had been spending blogging every morning will be devoted to, well, adding years to my life.

It’s funny how you never think about that stuff till you get past 40, then you can’t stop thinking about it.

(I do have some stuff to blog today, though, so stick around).
