Happy Tuesday, everyone! Who believes that we will win today? Of course, the one day that I work the 2-6pm shift is the day of the US soccer game, but I plan on streaming the game while I sit at the desk, so no real worries there. I may not be the world's biggest soccer fan, but I am a big fan of America, so, that's that.


Let's get this post started with some of our regularly scheduled events, shall we? Today's workout started a little bit later than I thought it would as I went to bed last night. I must have been more tired than I originally thought, because I slept pretty hard from about midnight to 9:30am, and I still didn't really want to get up, but I knew it was probably time to start my day. 

I started my day off with a walk at Town Lake, and the sun was already beating down on me at that time. It was still a beautiful morning, and there were already people out on the lake kayaking and paddleboarding.


I hurried home at the conclusion of my walk so that I could hurry and make breakfast with enough time to get over to Gregory for a late morning swim. I made my traditional egg whites and spinach, and quickly ate them before changing and driving over to SRD before walking to Gregory.

I was nervous about cutting it too close to make it to work on time, but I made it back to my house just before 1:00pm. That gave me plenty of time to shower, get ready, fold my laundry, and start taking decorations off of my wall (say it ain't so).


I got to SRD a little bit early today, because I knew there was a delicious meal on the menu for today - beef and veggie kabobs. I dropped my backpack off in the office before heading down to the dining hall and loading up my plate with kabobs.

I opted for one beef and two veggie, with a few pineapple pieces on the side. I rarely buy pineapple for myself these days, so this was a nice surprise. It fueled me for a very enthusiastic tour, and, of course, to cheer on Team USA!


And before I sign off on you guys, I have to tell you about the deliciousness that are CandyCots. I saw them while doing a little grocery shopping at Central Market over the weekend, and though I was initially hesitant about them, the tagline "The Sweetest Thing on Earth" convinced me to make the purchase.

By the name alone I figured they were in the Apricot family, and they are - CandyCots are a uniquely sweet group of apricot varieties that are high in Vitamin A, C, E, potassium, and iron - quite the versatile fruit! Dark orange CandyCots are a good source of beta carotene, and foods that are high in this antioxidant are linked to a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, cataracts, and some forms of cancer. And finally, CandyCots contain no fat, making these the perfect summer snack. They are easy to carry and easy to eat. Plus, CandyCots are always grown in a wholesome manner, and farmed with methods and materials that protect the environment, your health, and are in harmony with nature.

CandyCots are absolutely delicious, and just the right amount of sweet, so for all of my Texas readers, head to your local Central Market or HEB and pick up this sweet treat. I don't think they're in season for much longer, so take advantage of them while you still can!
