I've spent more time cramming food in my face under a blanket on my couch lately than I'd like to admit. I decided its time to turn over a new leaf and get more active. I've put on some extra pounds this year, and instead of beating myself up about it, or trying some stupid yo-yo diet, I'm just going to commit to walking 10,000 steps each day at a Lubbock park.

I feel like I've sort of been waiting until New Year's Day to get started with my resolution to get in better shape, but why wait? I'll go ahead and get a head start now.

I reached out to my friends to find out what their favorite Lubbock parks were so that I can try to check out a different one each week on this journey toward getting healthier. I've compiled a list of 9 local parks that residents really seem to enjoy the most.

Check out my list, and be sure to wave at me if you catch me out for a stroll!
