Weeknd Challenge Day 2 (of 4), Hiking Pictures at Gym

Friday, November 04, 2011

Wasn't sure what to blog about today, so I thought I would just share some pictures I took while hiking on the trails around my gym.


(my favorite pic... this bridge is at the very beginning of the trail--a beautiful prelude)


(I wish i had gone earlier when the leaves were still turning.. bet it would have been even more gorgeous)


("I took the road less traveled... and it has made all the difference")


(There are tons of these everywhere, in case you fall or need help... and the entire wooded area is surrounded with a 6 ft fence for safety.)


(Can you guess which trail I took? LONG, of course. And then medium my next lap.)


(There is a lodge in the middle of the woods where people come to vacation or lose weight (similar to biggest loser resort?) It looks gorgeous.. I should totally convince my bf to stay here for our anniversary and do some hiking!)

The next few pics are inspirational quotes found around the garden at the end of the trails... how wonderful!

(One of my new favorite quotes)



(I think this is so true)






Some of these quotes really hit home... especially the one about not asking of others to do what you are not willing to do for yourself. As a co-leader of the biggest loser, I need to set a good example by working hard for my team to encourage their success.




(The willow and bench next to the pond outside of the gym and in front of the trail)


(Second fav pic... there are a ton of streams and even a wetlands preserve here.)

I absolutely love this place. I saw about 500 squirrels, a few rabbits, and even a deer while I was jogging through the trails. It is so peaceful and tranquil, and I was like the only person there. I know I say this a lot, but I am sooo glad I joined this gym

I hope I can look back on this blog someday when I don't "feel like" working out, and maybe it will inspire me to get off my butt and go hiking.
