If you live in San Antonio, and haven’t been to Eisenhower Park, you are seriously missing out! This park is amazing and is my favorite hike in San Antonio. It has a great mixture of rocky canyons and wooded creek paths. One section of the outer rocky loop has a very extreme incline and decline that makes for a great work out. The entire outer loop actually makes for a fantastic work out. I like to combine running & lunges throughout the about 2.75 mile loop. This is a great park to bring your pets, our dogs absolutely love it. Hiking is our favorite thing to do as a family and it truly brings out the best behavior in our dogs.

There is also a wooden lookout deck that gives you an awesome elevated view of San Antonio, including the downtown area. The hill that leads you up to the post is pretty steep, so I like doing lunges on the way for a little extra workout! The tank top I’m wearing is from one of my favorite companys called Electro Threads and I absolutely love it. All of their designs are colorfully unique and spread a positive message. Finding balance is something I’m trying to do daily in my life & I love wearing this tank as a reminder! ❤

My all time favorite boutique, Dottie Couture, added some seriously cute arrivals last night that I must share with y’all! ❤ Thanks for stopping by & Happy Hump Day!

Today is National ‘Take a Hike Day‘ so I thought I would share one of my favorite hikes with y’all! About 2 months ago I lived in Austin, Texas for about 15 months and discovered one of my favorite views. You get a spectacular view of Lake Austin and the Pennybacker Bridge. It is the perfect hike to bring a little picnic. When you get up to the first look-out point there is plenty of room to sit and enjoy the view and have a little snack. You can follow the path to the right and check out some other cool look-out spots or you can turn around after you’ve seen the main view. The address is 5300 N Capital of Texas HWY Austin, Texas 78730.

What is your favorite spot to hike? Comment below! 🙂

Yesterday we went on one of our many family hikes at Comanche Lookout Park. I lived in San Antonio for 4 years during college and never even knew of this park until I moved back. Not only is this park a beauty, but it has history! This park has the 4th highest point in Bexar County, which was used by Native Americans for warfare and hunting. One of the lookout posts still remains and is an awesome sight to see.

This park has both paved and non-paved trails, and a good number of benches to sit and enjoy the views. This park is dog friendly, which is a must for us! One of the reasons I hate going to the gym, is the fact that I have to leave our dogs (children) at home. I almost always turn my hikes into a more intense workout, so I can be with the dogs :). Working out with your dogs outside not only makes it more fun, but it makes it feel like less of a work out. Our normal route is to take the non paved path to the right of the main entrance. It is elevated and takes you right up to a pretty cool view with a bench if you need a rest.

A bit farther past the bench is a paved path, off to the right, where I do 50 lunges. I can definitely already feel the burn at this point! As you continue past the lookout post, there are some straight-a-ways that are good for sprinting and racing the pups. Layla is almost 9 months old, so she is a big ball of energy right now. Any chance she gets to run and chase us, she takes it and absolutely loves it. I usually try to do at least 5 20-second sprints each hike.

The highest point at this park has some benches to sit and relax and enjoy the spectacular views. I do 50 more lunges on the route back to the car. If you’re looking for more of a challenge, do your lunges on the non paved paths! Comment your favorite spots to hike in San Antonio! Thanks for reading! 🙂
