nobody showed up, so I ended up just going to Wal-Mart & getting my grocery shopping overwith for the week. made me really wish I had to dog I could take walking with me. Ron doesn't like the idea of me going alone, so I didn't go - I know that sounds like a cop-out, but I was just really disapointed that nobody showed up.

I gained 4 lbs over the weekend from the hubby's birthday & Mother's day. so that really just sucks

I walked 4.6 miles with my sister today. It was hard for her, she's not used to that much walking. Pretty windy and cool, but I'm proud of her to push through. We burned 480 calories!

I'm sorry I didn't make it Paula, I hope you weren't out there walking on your own! I slept terrible because I could hear the wind all night. I am going to try and muster up the energy to do the hike today in Bella Vista. It sure is windy today.

ok Ladies, it is raining outside right now! So, I suggest we have a change of venue to the MUD CREEK TRAIL. This way we won't be dirty & muddy when we're finished walking. Last week around Lake Fayetteville the bottoms of my jeans were completely brown.

So that's 7:00 tomorrow morning at the Mud Creek Trail Head just off Old Missouri Road just south of Joyce Blvd by the bridge.

I totally understand about bad knees. I have bad knees and ankles so I too have to be very careful. The trails are really rocky and have roots that you can trip on but for the most part its not bad. You just really need to pay attention to your footing to make sure those mishaps do not happen. The other side of the park has more of a paved trail. They have it paved almost all the way down to 265. That is a nice walk as well. There are a few hills here and there. If you try the trail around the lake just keep your eye out for roots and loose rocks. Its a great trail and I am sure you would enjoy it as much as we do. :)

IF... I wake up in time(which is RARE) ready to hit the trail with you all I will be there Sunday. It will be a nice morning walk and I REALLY need to get into a morning workout routine. Plus it would be a great to be out in the morning air. :)

UPDATE:
Its late and chilly outside that = cold and chilly morning. Plus I'll be up a few more hours getting some work done. You ladies have a wonderful walk tomorrow. Happy Mother's day!

I have to remember to stop and think.

A better path for you is probably the Mud Creek Trail. The Lake Fayetteville one is tree covered with a lot of exposed roots & rolly rocks - I've stumbled several times. There is one part of the Lake trail that is paved, over the dam to Veteran's Park - you could do that part with us & then turn back to the ballpark, but then you'd be alone and that wouldn't be much fun for you. The Mud Creek Trail is paved the entire way and only a couple of inclines/declines that would be considered trying.

I've never walked Lake Fayetteville before...is it tough walking...like real woodsy hiking or is it just walking on a dirt path? My knees (I'm sure some can sympathize) are horrible and I have to be really careful with them. Besides, I'm a huge clutz. Also...I'm a pretty slow walker still...I never want to make anyone wait on me. I'd really like to come though, just not sure if I can yet.

I totally suck. :( I didn't make it. I've had a kid under the weather since Friday night, and I overslept. I'm glad you guys had a good time, and I'm gonna try to make it next week. :)

What a great hike we had today! Carrie, Jana & I did the inner-most loop at 4 miles!

I realize that next Sunday is Mother's Day, but better gift to give yourself than exercise! With that said:

7:00 am SHARP at the parking lot by the baseball fields just east of 71B

Who is up for next Sunday?
