Better Than Candy, Substitute Grapes for Weight Loss

We are definitely starting to see the first inklings of fall here in Michigan.  The days are shorter, the shadows are longer, and most nights are starting to bring a chill.  If you are like me and share the house with others that are not trying to lose weight, then this is also a season for candy and treats.  Since I am still fighting the weight loss battle, I thought I would share an idea that helps me avoid the ubiquitous sweets-substitute with sweet red grapes.  Now of course they do have sugar and calories, so you cannot go crazy eating them, but they sure do hit the spot for me.  Let me know what you think.

I love My Kayak

The shadows are starting to get longer here in Michigan and the days are growing shorter as we slip into fall.  The nights are nice and cool, but during the day it still feels plenty hot when in the sunlight.  I am taking advantage of the continual nice weather by going for a paddle as often as I can.  After trying an inflatable kayak for the first time earlier in the spring, I was hooked.  I soon bought these inexpensive Pelican Kayaks, and use them daily.  I just love them, so check out the video...

Let me know what you think.
