Welcome to 2009

Published by at 8:13 am under General

I’ve been taking a bit of a blogging and podcasting holiday, which I only broke to link to JJ’s excellent post on the CA certificate vulnerability.  I’m still vaguely on break until next week, but I thought I’d let everyone know I’m still alive.  There aren’t any big changes in store for me other than getting in shape and behind the scenes stuff Rich and I are working on for the podcast, but it’s still the first working day of 2009 and I figured I’d start it out with a short blog post.

I hate New Year’s Resolutions, but I accidentally ended up making one of the biggies, the infamous diet and exercise resolution.  I say accidentally because I made the decision to change well before the New Year started, the stars just happened to align such that I’ll be starting everything tomorrow morning.  I hate calling this a New Year’s Resolution because there are connotations of failure built into our concept of an NYR.  Too many people make NYR’s fully expecting to fail, something I want to avoid.  And if you didn’t already know, there’s a whole host of security professionals who are using P90X to get in shape, many of us motivated by the infamous Chris Hoff.

Here’s hoping you had a good holiday season and hoping you can find the motivation to get going again now that the silly season is over.  Now, back to the salt mines with all of us!

    Martin,

    Although most Americans are reluctant to try it, going vegetarian or vegan (no animal products at all) a couple of days per week can be a great way to lose weight and improve your overall health.

    Best of luck with your diet and exercise program.

    I had dinner with a couple several months ago at a vegan restaurant on the eve of their wedding. They’re both strongly vegan and I figured it wouldn’t hurt me at all to try it. I had some portabella mushrooms in a pita which was pretty good. Luckily they served cream and sugar with breakfast the next morning. But there’s not much chance of me adopting it as a lifestyle.

    Exercise program is going well so far. Today’s my rest day and I almost feel like I should be doing something. I’ll do some stretches later on today to work it out.
