I picked up this by e little badge and the month is just halfway over. That doesn’t mean I’ll stop. Gotta get those miles in so I can get the miles in. The goal for me was to close the exercise ring 9 times in the month. Even though I was sick and had a doctors visit I still managed to get the goal. Yay me! #hikingviews#lifehappensoutdoors#optoutdoors#outdooradventures#vegetarian#overweight#hiking#adventure#dailywalker#texan#camping#explore#getfit#dadbod#fitby50#hikinglove#hiking daily #idhikethat#hikingadventures#adventureenthusiasts#letskeepitwild#findyourpark#exploretexas#hiking_daily

For the last week I’ve had a sore throat and a lot of coughing. Some of my kiddos friends had strep throat but he didn’t get it. I was wondering if it was bust allergies or something more so today I went to see my doctor. While I was waiting I saw this official #bmi chart and decided to look at my numbers. Wow. What a shocker. But I already knew this. And that’s why I’m out hiking everyday. #hikingviews#lifehappensoutdoors#optoutdoors#outdooradventures#vegetarian#overweight#hiking#adventure#dailywalker#texan#camping#explore#getfit#dadbod#fitby50#hikinglove#hiking daily #idhikethat#hikingadventures#adventureenthusiasts#letskeepitwild#findyourpark#exploretexas#hiking_daily

Here’s the 2nd photo that goes with the one from yesterday. It was taken at @mckinneyfallsstatepark and is the lower falls. Just scroll back to read the whole story. Today I woke up And it was cold. 31 degrees here. Also my nose was all stuffed up, and our dog had slept in my knee and now that feels all messed up. It’s It so bad that I’m gonna break my hiking/walking streak tho. A couple of Advil, a soft knee brace, and a few extra layers of clothes and I’ll put in 3-4 miles later. It’s supposed to snow around noon today. I’m gonna try to plan my walk around that time so perhaps I can get a decent photo. But if I know central Texas weather it’s not gonna be too exciting. #hikingviews#lifehappensoutdoors#optoutdoors#outdooradventures#vegetarian#overweight#hiking#adventure#dailywalker#texan#camping#explore#getfit#dadbod#fitby50#hikinglove#hiking daily #idhikethat#hikingadventures#adventureenthusiasts#letskeepitwild#findyourpark#exploretexas#hiking_daily

It was a pretty grey day when I went out to @mckinneyfallsstatepark for the first time. It was a Tuesday in February so there was almost nobody there. I had the place to myself! After buying my first Texas State Parks yearly pass I parked near the lower falls and walked across the slightly slippery rocks to the waterfall. At first I wanted to hike the Homestead Trail but I couldn’t find an easy way to cross Williamson creek which had a pretty good flow and I didn’t have trekking poles with me. So I turned the other direction, and began the 10 min walk to the upper falls. (That photo will be published tomorrow). Then headed around the 2.8 mile Onion Creek Trail. I finished around lunchtime, ate a @clifkid Zbar (which had been sitting in my center console for who knows how long) and filled and drank my empty water bottle. It feels so great to be outside! I’ll return next week to try the other trail! #hikingviews#lifehappensoutdoors#optoutdoors#outdooradventures#vegetarian#overweight#hiking#adventure#dailywalker#texan#camping#explore#getfit#dadbod#fitby50#hikinglove#hiking daily #idhikethat#hikingadventures#adventureenthusiasts#letskeepitwild#findyourpark#exploretexas#hiking_daily

Do you see a change yet? I feel one. This walk marks my 7th day straight of walking. Today I headed to one of my local State Parks, McKinney Falls. For those if you who aren’t familiar with it, this park is located inside the City limits of Austin just behind the airport and adjacent to some new subdivisions. My walk started with a slip and a fall as I dreaded to the lowerfalls. It had been raining the night before and the rocks leading to the falls were wet. So as I was heading down a small slope the ground gave way under my feet and I ended up on my butt. Nothing like a fat guy falling down, right? Since this was a Tuesday the place was essentially empty and I got to explore in my own. I was unable to find a way to cross Onion creek at the lower falls to access the trail on the north side, so I turned south and walked the lower Onion Creek trail. It’s mostly asphalt paved and not too strenuous, even though there were signs saying the opposite. What I really didn’t like was hearing all the hammers and saws as the new homes were being built nearby. Now I have to return to complete the other trail. I’ll do that next #trailTueaday.#hikingviews#lifehappensoutdoors#optoutdoors#outdooradventures#vegetarian#overweight#hiking#adventure#dailywalker#texan#camping#explore#getfit#dadbod#fitby50#hikinglove#hiking daily #idhikethat#hikingadventures#adventureenthusiasts#letskeepitwild#findyourpark#exploretexas#hiking_daily

Less than a mile from my front door is this little system of trails tucked in a green belt on the other side of the freeway. I had driven past the trailhead for over 12 years noting the wooden board with the paper maps stapled to it. Looking over the barrier and into the Woods. Not until today have I ever explored any closer than my car window. Today was different. I as I locked my front door I turned right and headed down the same road I take to go shopping, the same road I use to go to work. But instead of traveling in my air conditioned car I pressed the walk button to cross the street by foot. Over the guard rail and down the path I entered the woods. Sounds of the city soon fell silent as I hiked into the trees. A small creek blocked my path but I found some stones carefully placed making a foot bridge, nearby, and I carefully crossed heading deeper into the Forrest. #hikingviews#lifehappensoutdoors#optoutdoors#outdooradventures#vegetarian#overweight#hiking#adventure#dailywalker#texan#camping#explore#getfit#dadbod#fitby50#hikinglove#hiking daily #idhikethat#hikingadventures#adventureenthusiasts#letskeepitwild#findyourpark#exploretexas#hiking_daily

So this is where it all begins. You’ve uncovered my first post on Instagram. Has your journey been all you expected it to be? My journey has taken me so many places. Most recently it has taken me to a place I don’t like. But that’s nobody’s fault but my own. In being inactive, not mindful, and careless my body has changed. Even though I have lived with a plant misty diet for over 35 years my inactive lifestyle has taken its toll. I wake up stiff and not well rested. I find myself wanting to nap throughout the day. I’m short of breath doing even simple tasks. As I look back on my life I never imagined myself as an unhealthy 50 year old. I always saw myself as the witty, sly, skinny guy. But when I look in the mirror the reflection is the opposite. Sallow, heavy, paltry. But I have 2 years to rectify this. And it starts every morning. Just like today. A heart is the best encouragement you could give me. A follow is the best way for me to encourage you.
