Listen to your hormones

Watching Dr. Natasha Turner on The Marilyn Denis show (www.marilyn.ca) the other day reminded me that I have to pay more attention to what goes into my body. I’m convinced my itching, bitching and all-round BOOMERbroad falling apart issues are hormone related but it’s hard to give them the attention they deserve. I’ve read about Natasha Turner in the past but last week’s episode prompted me to download her book from the library and give it a serious read. The result is I was so encouraged and motivated by it that I went out the next day and purchased my very own hard copy that I could highlight and bookmark for reference. And when I read a book I like, I want all my friends to experience the same high, so I recommended they purchase it as well – or at least borrow it and read it. Now I’ve set myself up for a challenge.
Product DetailsAlthough I already consume a relatively healthy diet with little to no sugar or alcohol, I do drink tea, including green tea and unfortunately must admit that my one major vice is Diet Coke – preferably a large fountain Diet Coke not the somewhat inferior canned or bottled kind. I keep my carbs to a minimum and always whole grain. I try to buy organic foods whenever possible and plan meals to be at least two-thirds veggies. Since I’ve been going to Weight Watchers – again (www.weightwatchers.ca) my go-to snack has been fruit so generally I’ve been a very good girl. Although I love sweets, I’ve sworn off most cookies and treats until I achieve my weight goal.
I’m now going through Dr. Turner’s book with a yellow high-lighter and a fistful of Post-It bookmarks. My intentions are good. Let’s see how I do on the follow-through.

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends. Let's rock n' roll! If you would like to be notified whenever I publish a new posting, click on the little blue box in the lower right of your screen that says +Follow→ Lynda Davis
