When welcoming in the new year, many people make resolutions – loosing weight being the post popular resolution of them all – one that most people tend to blow within the first weeks of the year, if not definitely by the time that the Superbowl comes around. Don’t get me wrong, I’m guilty of breaking the diet resolution every year for more years than I care to admit.
One diet that I think that everyone could benefit from regardless of physical stature, is a digital diet. It’s not uncommon to see a group of people gathered around a table on a night out most of them interacting more with their iPhone, iPad, and Android screens more than they interact with each other face to face.
This isn’t the ubiquitous “2013 in review” and “here’s what I plan on doing in 2014” post. Sure, it’ll contain some of that, but honestly, I’m getting older. And more forgetful. And well… there’s a lot about 2013 that I don’t remember – not intentionally of course, there’s just parts that I don’t remember as well as I should. Hopefully blogging will help change that.
Health wise, I know that 2013 started off with my heart ablation – actually, it was the second one. The first was a few weeks prior December of 2012. The ablations didn’t fix my PVC’s but it reduced them by about 30%. I had never felt my PVCs before or after the ablations, but there’s really nothing to celebrate there. However, fewer PVCs should put less stress on my heart which should let me live longer. No complaints there, right? I do know that heart ablations are one of the most painful and scary things that someone can go through. You’re wide awake while they literally cook part of your heart from the inside out. Awesome.
