70-Year-Old Diet and Lifestyle 150 150 hill-fisher

Recently I turned 70 and realized I’d gained weight over the past few years. I have always been active and had never had a problem with weight.  But now I was getting heavy.  So, I went on the 70-year-old diet.  What’s the 70-year-old diet?  It’s not allowing yourself to stuff your face with whatever food you want. No more hot fudge sundaes with marshmallow sauce, no more eating cashews when you’re hungry.  No more eating meals until you’re so full you wish you hadn’t eaten so much.  After three months on the 70-year-old diet, I’m down to the weight I want.   I now eat small meals and between meals when I’m hungry I drink hot water.

What is the 70-year-old lifestyle? The 70-year-old lifestyle is remembering to enjoy life.  At times I get so overwhelmed with what I’m doing, that I must remember to simplify my life.  I have a small business that I’ve had for the past 30 years.  Does it make much money?  No, but I enjoy working on it. It’s a publishing company. I love writing the books, but the marketing is difficult.  What have I done to advertise? I’ve sent out flyers, shown my books at conferences, done cold callings.  Now I am trying to improve my webpage.

Improving my webpage is becoming overwhelming. I recently attended a Score workshop about What Every Business Owner Should Know About SEO.  At the end of the program, the presenter said you could send him your website address and he would let you know what he thought of it.  So, I did and this is the feedback I got.

The website has not been optimized.

The profiles are incomplete or inconsistent.

Google scores for the Desktop and Mobile sites produced results well below the recommended score of 90/100.

The website speed was also much below the recommended score of 90/100.

The score presenter recommended engaging his team to address these issues.

I recommend Score.  The Score mentors I have met have been very knowledgeable. So now I will improve my webpage and at the same time remember not to get overwhelmed with it.  Just writing this all down has helped.

My website is www.fisher-hill.com.  I hope the site won’t be too slow for you. The workbooks I publish are for Spanish speaking teens and adult to learn English.  For many people, learning a new language can be difficult and as you know from a previous blog, my own two boys did not have the school gene.  So, I have made my workbooks easy to use, ones when opened, the student will say I can do this.
