Boomer’s Ramblings (I am Rambling :) )

As life goes on, I am back to working on my fat to flat routines.   It is going pretty good.  I have combined several routines so that I do not get bored with doing the same thing week in and week out.  I believe that is why most people do not keep up their workouts.

When it comes to dieting I do not push myself to eat only certain things all the time. The problem with most diets is, again, people get bored with the routine of eating only certain foods at certain times.  I am a firm believer that people can accomplish their goals a lot easier, if they are not too hard to keep up.  Take it all in stride, baby steps to be exact.

Example I have cut sweets back to maybe once a week.  You must understand I am one of those that loved to eat while I watch T.V.  It  happens that most of the shows I like come on at eight o’clock or later.  So this was very harmful any  healthy living style.  Most of those times it was a late night bowl of ice cream.  Maybe I would even exchange that for cereal or yogurt.  The yogurt being small I could never limit myself to one.  Any way I no longer eat anything after nine, and seldom eat anything after eight and I haven’t had anything as heavy as ice cream in quite some time.  My favorite sweet lately is a cup of coffee from a coffee-house.  I like the Mexican Mocha and the Milano.  I will admit the other day I broke down and had a Reese’s with my lunch.

I have also cut fried foods back to very seldom.  The whole idea here is that I may not lose weight for a couple of days, but I am not going to gain it back either.

My point is, I don’t eat like I used to and I get some exercise to boot.

I almost forgot….You can’t get frustrated if you don’t hit your goal right away. Do not let frustration and impatience be your downfall.



About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.

  1. As far as the evening snacking in front of the TV I suggest Twizzlers. They give a candy feel but they don’t pack much of a calorie punch. I can honestly say it takes time. Over the last year and a half I have dropped 35 pounds. It was slow at first but once I found the joy in long distance running, walking, and hiking it started to drop a lot faster. I wish you tons of luck on your way to your goal! One day at a time!

    • Thank-you for the comment. I will definitely keep the Twizzlers in mind I actually like them. I haven’t done much walking lately, I have let myself be sisified (a word I made up) by the weather. I have lost about 30 pounds in the last two years, and I feel a lot better. Anyway I thank you again for taking the time and I hope you have a great evening.
