Go to the doctor regularly. Seriously.

I just turned 50. I work out regularly. I eat relatively well. I don’t go to the doctor.  I was at the gym this morning. I had a major heart attack caused by a total blockage of my LAD artery. For those of you who might be wondering, I didn’t die. 😀 What I’m trying to say is go see your doctor at least once a year. Even if you don’t need to. I had none of the warning signs for this — blood pressure was fine, cholesterol ok, a few extra pounds but not bad. However a doctor probably would have recommended a stress test at my age that would have picked this up. Don’t be like me.
