To all of my readers and followers:
After careful consideration and pondering the inevitable I have decided to end my Baby Boomer Way website. I believe after publishing 658 posts, over 75 recipes, countless exercise and hula-hoop entries, I have reached the max of my blogging days. On October 2, 2010 I wrote my first post which was aptly titled Joanie’s Weigh (A weight loss guide for baby boomers). It was my intent to guide others on a similar journey to live fit and healthy lifestyles. Who was I to force my beliefs on my peers? Well, it was suggested by family and friends to try my hand at writing and inspiring others if I was able. I figured that since I competently lost sixty pounds by changing my mindset and having a positive attitude, I was able to do anything, and therefore why not pay it forward. It worked for awhile but as I lived my life, events started to unravel, and all of the familiar routines became more of a chore for me. Ultimately, I was grasping at straws so to speak.
It just is not the same since I began almost three years ago, and unfortunately not as much fun. Pivotal events have occurred in my life that have forced me to take detours and a backseat to my desired behavior (and therefore I should not subject you to it). Frankly, annotating my personal photos for Funny Fridays, spewing out unfavorable comments regarding my beach house renters, trying fad diets, and not participating in exercise regimes has nothing to do with living fit and healthy lifestyles.
I will keep up the website for a short time but will not be posting anything further, I need to concentrate on other things in my life that hopefully will supplement my income or make life a little bit easier for our impending retirement. I don’t know how long my Social Media sites will be up (FaceBook, Twitter, Stumble Upon) and I will slowly be phasing those out as well. If you would like to contact me outside of Baby Boomer Way you may do so by e-mailing me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will gladly respond to any comments, questions or just simple “keeping in touch” notes. I hope that everyone will be successful on their own journey and if there is anything I can do to help, you can certainly reach out to me if you would like (it’s not as if I’m moving to Bora-Bora although I wouldn’t mind ha-ha). Be well my friends I will miss you all and always remember to:
Keep healthy and fit by living your very own fit and healthy lifestyle!
