I sell these Water Bikes. I'm not presenting a very "healthy" image here...

This is nuts. I enjoy the outdoors SO much, yet I can still manage to do nothing long enough to be overweight...sigh. I'm hoping for a kick-in-the pants - I don't plan on being the sort of Grandma who sits in a rocker. I've got 8 grandkids with 2 more on the way!
So here I am, putting it all out there for the world to see: I need more "fit" and less "fat". Michigan (where I live) is an outdoor lover's dream come true - I need to get out and enjoy it more!
I must admit, that after being a member a few days and learning my way around the website - I'm meeting LOTS of amazing people whose progress towards healthiness I admire, and plan to emulate.
Lose a pound a week.
Get outside more
Find a friend or two to exercise with
Still trying to figure out what is going to work with my schedule??
I live in SW Michigan, on a large lake, and near an awesome State Park!
I own a retail store, selling used cars, small sailboats; and flags, banners, kites, and windsocks
I've always loved playing with the wind - hence my passion for sailboats and kites!

Hi KAYAKDEB! We several things in common (and maybe more). My first name is also Deb (actually Deborah), I am from Crystal, Michigan (we both live in Michigan on a lake - that's two in one!) and we both need motivation to eat healthier and exercise more.
I also like the outdoors . . . bicycling, jogging, rollerskating, walking, boating, and more. Michigan is soooo beautiful (but it's been quite cool this year - have only turned on the air conditioning two times and have already contemplated turning on the heat a couple times!).
A good friend of mine has (had) a cottage at Gun Lake . . . it's so beautiful and BIG. We have also camped at Yankee Springs campground. Fun, fun, fun.
Let's keep in touch . . . do you know there's a MISPARKS team with members from Michigan????
Later, gator . . . Deb

Nope - never had a blue heeler before, just Aussies. I asked my husband if he was willing to do all the brushing required and he said yes. We'll see.
I mentioned you in my previous blog (the one before you commented on). http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and commenting on it.
Thanks, too, for the reminder that muscle weighs more than fat. I knew that, but sometimes I still get so fixated on my weight, that I forget that.
BTW, I went out kayaking this morning and it was awesome!
(I guess I mentioned that in my blog, now that I think about it.)
