Also, kayaking in the fall is awesome so we will spend about two hours paddling along the lake and enjoying the scenes from that perspective.  Is 8 miles too far for you?  Come with us for this event!  We will have two groups of twenty taking turns on the trail and the kayaks culminating with a tasty dinner around the campfire and some awesome social time!  Each activity will last about 2 hours with a short break around the fire in between to recharge.  Dirty Girls, Dirty Dudes and Dirty kids are welcome to join us for this fall event.

Time on the trail as fall begins is more beautiful than ever!  Everyone who has been joining the Dirty Girls for time on the trail has been improving their fitness level and, hopefully, their peace of mind!  We are a diverse group at this point, some are up to running or speed wogging others are just starting out on the trail.  I am SOOO excited to see this moving forward! People are getting outside, stretching their daily routines and working to feel good!

I can’t wait for the Half Day Hike.  I am hoping that it freezes once to kill some bugs and maybe cut down the brush.  Even if it doesn’t, it will be awesome!  This will be the hike to bring along the camera – hopefully we will see some good sights!  In addition to the hike, I am looking forward to sitting around the campfire at the end of the hike, relaxing with the Dirty Girls.  I love chillaxing around the fire on any occasion but this will be especially lovely!

I am absolutely thrilled that so many  Dirty Girls are hitting the trail with me.  Lately. I have been focusing on what to do on the days we aren’t on the trail.  I, for one, have been slacking on that a bit!  I need to do some more core strengthening and stretching – I need a day of good yoga each week!  (Someday, when I have a Dirty Girl Clubhouse/outfitter store, I will have yoga twice a week!) So… I am making a goal to add to my usual three days a week on the trail!  I want to ride my bike twice a week, do yoga once a week and ADD some basic strength moves to each workout day.  This will take some practice – new habits always do.  I figure, add some sit ups, push ups (Dirty Girl Jenni has some amazing arms and has inspired me!) and my physical therapy exercises again.  This should only add a thirty minute routine maybe four days a week.  It was sooo much easier when working out was part of my work day!

Dirty Girls don’t give up!!

Exercise and healthy eating are 100% part of my daily life.  Sure, I eat too much of some things.  I eat junk food and I drink, generally in moderation.  It’s not a diet, it is just how life is… adding a few more minutes of exercise shouldn’t be impossible.  I would, of course, love to be thinner and firmer and more fit but really, generally, I feel great!  The motivator for my activity isn’t so much weight loss, (it was 100% about that at one time) now my motivation is being fit, feeling great, sleeping tight and having this awesome energy to live my life.  What motivates you?  Why are you getting up and getting out?  Are there tangible rewards for you?  Are you walking or working out when you aren’t on the trail? If you aren’t exercising and getting outside regularly, how can you work it into your day?  It doesn’t matter if you are fast and cranking out a 30 minute 5K (the cross country boys are doing it in less than 20 minutes!) or walking slowly and steadily down the road, just keep moving! Hang out with some Dirty Girls and get it going on!!
