It’s been a very busy week at work (thank God). I feel especially lucky in this economy to have the option to diet.

I found out this week that my resting heart rate is 42 beats per minute. Turns out that’s a pretty good indicator of your physical fitness. 42 falls in the “excellent” category on the website I found via Google that explains such things. I had to pick my doctors jaw up off the floor. He was pleased.

I also found out this week that I’m physically able to do pull-ups. I’ve never in my life been able to do a pull-up. I did five today. That was poignant. I’ve been on a health kick since June. I’ve begun to write about at my blog but I’m off to a slow start. The gist is that through diet and exercise I’ve lost 50 lbs and gotten in really good shape. Fun stuff.

It’s been a busy week on the Donk, too. It’s nice when there is content and meaty threads. 2012 is just around the corner, I expect things to pick up around here.

I spent a little time over at KK’s blog, The Cranky Critter, where I cursed at strangers.

I also spent some time at Simon’s Blog, Stubborn Facts, where the facts are stubborn but not unmalleable.

Where did you guys spend your week in the blogosphere?
