Level 42

I am 42 years old today. This middle-aged guy will be spending the day (1) blogging about himself in the third person while (2) rocking out to 80s era one hit wonders Level 42. Enjoy.

Happy Christmas



Doin’ It Right

I was hospitalized six weeks ago when my heart went into atrial fibrillation. If you’ve never experienced an irregular, fast heart beat for a sustained period of time it sort of feels like you are dying. When my heart was normalized and I was released I took the following steps to improve my life:

  • Quit smoking cigarettes
  • Developed good eating habits
  • Working out at a gym daily
  • Started seeing a therapist
  • Vipassana meditation
  • Stretches and exercises at home

I’m happy to report that I’ve lost 33 pounds and I feel better than I’ve felt in a long time. I plan on adding yoga, hiking and massage into the mix in the coming weeks.
