Great walk to the bridge and back. Picked up one 20oz Coke bottle and the detached cap along the trail and threw them in the trash.

In the last 9 days I have lost 7lbs taking the supplements every evening that I mentioned in my previous review. I've been too busy to get out and walk or hike since starting the supplements, thats really good progress without any exercise. Doing exercise a few times a week will help lose the weight a bit quicker and improve my overall strength and stamina.

Short but quick walk to the bridge and back. At 5'10" my ideal weight is 155 to 160lbs. My weight stays pretty even at 180lbs, about 25lbs over weight, the very high end of the BMI scale for my height. Last year I lost 15lbs with hiking/walking, plenty of water, and the appetite suppressant garcinia cambogia to stop snacking in the evening and late at night. After awhile the garcinia didn't work so well and quit taking it for quite awhile. Over the winter of 2016 into 2017 I gained the 15lbs back. In two days I will be finished with the garcinia and will switch to a couple other supplements I bought at Super Supplements, Quadra Lean (with CLA, garcinia, raspberry ketones), and 400mg green coffee bean extract pills.

I've always been one to have big plates of food, and often having seconds. Stopping that habit is hard. I'm not on a healthfood kick now, just eating more reasonable portions. It's extremely rare when I drink pop, eat junk food or fast food. Couple snack weakness are cold cereal, 1 to 2 frozen burritos because they are quick and easy, or maybe a couple corndogs.

My hope is I can achieve a healthy weight and maintain that with exercise, not over eating and if need be a pill supplement or fiber to curb the appetite and evening snacking.

A windy day, great for walking. I was a few minutes faster then last time and not sore. Couple small pieces of garbage picked up and put in a trash can. Also picked up a few branches on the trail and threw them off into the bushes.

Found up three AAA batteries along the trail and put them in the trash. Overall the trail and park are very clean with the trash cans available. Anytime I'm out walking or hiking I'm going to have a plastic grocery bag in my pocket in case I find more trash then I want to carry with my hands. I have a couple 13 gallon trash bags in my hiking pack and will add in a few plastic grocery bags too.

Wow I am outta shape! Last year I was walking the whole trail in about 40 minutes. Today I went to the water fountain and back to the parking lot and was a few seconds shy of 50 minutes. Going to the water fountain was a bit to far, I shoulda turned around at the bridge. I might pay for it tomorrow being a bit sore, if so will rest. Will be out later this week for a bit shorter walk to build my stamina.

Cool weather and a great day for a walk. Picked up four bottle rocket sticks on the path, one with a live rocket and fuse attached. Threw them in the trash.

Trail is not too far from the cities. Good pathways for wheelchairs and strollers (paved). It can get pretty crowded on nicer days. It is around swampy marsh lands/ponds and there is different routes of trails. There's a park with a playground and large field before the trail entrances. On some of the trails there is picnic tables. The walk is inside a forested area so it does feel as if you are in the woods not off the road by neighborhoods, also this provides shade. One trail leads to an elementary school.

It can get a bit crowded on a beautiful summer day but this is a hidden treasure in the south hill area. Several paved loops so you can set your own workout. Paths are mostly in the shade, there is a hard to read map at the NE corner at the end of the parking lot that can help you plan your hike. It can be a half mile or several miles if you want to go towards the sports complex. This is my favorite dog walking park but thanks to uncaring people there is some poop next to the trail even though they offer bags and trash cans. But don't let that spoil your fun just do your part and clean up.

This is a nice park locals use a lot to get in a little exercise. From the car park to Rogers HS ballfields is about a 40 min walk round trip mostly in shade. Large playfield where people play ball with their dogs, play equipment and bathrooms at parking area. I saw a deer in the woods here. It's a wide path so families can walk and talk. Accessible for strollers, wheelchairs, bikes and skateboards. Nice at sunset as there are areas open to the west to watch the sun set. Friendly people and dogs on leash.
