Hiking and a Booty Workout

This past weekend the Hubs, and his cousin and her husband, we'll call them "the Dittys" went on our best Hiking trip yet, even if it is only the Hubs and my 2nd trip. It was still the best.
We ventured out to Hill Country State Park about an hour away and the drive was beautiful.

The plan was to go on a hike for about 1 hour and a half and then eat the yummy lunch we took aout there, which by the way took us about a hour and a trip to two different grocery stores to find.

After a $6 per person entry, we said hello to the horses (yes, there are people riding horse at our state parks- we're in Texas)and started planning our hike. Little did we know that the planning was going to be of no use to us, especially since the boys had the map.

So we went on our "planned" trails and about 1 hour and a half in, 2 map review stops and a pretty difficult uphill hike. This is the view we were so lucky to enjoy.

I have to say that the Hubs is in pretty good shape and so are the Ditty's (there also fellow P90xers)and that hike wore us all out. By the time we got back to our car and picnic table (3 hours from our start time) we were so hungry and ready for our amazing HEB chicken salad sandwiches and nice cold water. We figured we probably hiked about 5 - 5.5 miles but the uphill and rocky terrain is what killed us. Great booty workout and you know everyone loves a good booty workout :)!!!

Tip: These are not trails a girl should try to run by herself. Honestly, I cant even imagine trying to run here. These a more of a "tie-up-those-boots-Bubba-we-going-for-a-hike" kinda trails.

All in all, I have to say I really really enjoyed this. The weather was perfect, the company was great, we laughed and talked the entire way. The plan is to try to hike at a different state park each month. I hope we stick to this, its nice to break up the monotany of the workout routine.
