A Little Bit of San Antonio

When the weekends come up, we all automatically go into adventurer exploration mode. During the week we focus on our school, our studies and our duties that we have to do in the military. This past weekend though we explored a little bit more of San Antonio. The weekend of February 22nd-23rd was also Mardi Gras which we had completely forgotten about. Who knew The Riverwalk could get down and party? Well that weekend we explored some new yummy food venues and actually walked around the Riverwalk.

The Riverwalk

San Antonio is known for its history. The city has The Alamo, the Riverwalk through the city, Market Square and so much more. The Riverwalk is also named Paseo del Rio and is known for its shops, restaurants and lights that line the winding river through the city. You can enjoy the river any time of the year and either in the day or in the evening.

Found an empty spot for a photo.

One of the many stairways that lead back up to street level.

During festivals on the Riverwalk, be aware that it becomes extremely busy. Even though there are many restaurants that line the river there will be a wait. Don’t let that deter you from visiting though, it is definitely a must see.

Treats of the Weekend

When you go out to a new city I think it is always fun to try out new places that you never have been to before. So none of the same chain restaurants or anything, be adventurous. We managed to find a few good spots to try. For breakfast our first stop was a place called First Watch. It was delicious, everything was healthy and delicious. The portions were well sized and they had fresh squeezed orange juice which is always a favorite of mine. They have many healthy options and also have vegetarian and vegan options available.

After having a breakfast/brunch we walked about the city, did some errands and then came across a frozen yogurt place. We had all been craving something sweet and knew we had to try this place out. It was called Orange Leaf. Its similar to my frozen yogurt place i’m used to called Sweet Frog back in Virginia, so I had to see if this place was worth it. It was. This little sweet treat shop was adorable. From its art on its wall to the different flavors of frozen yogurt! We were all glad we stumbled upon it. It even had a map of where their visitors had come from. I of course joined and added my pin to California.

Last but not least, dinner was amazing. We happened by this place because the restaurant we originally wanted had a two hour wait! We were not going to wait that long…ever. So we walked around and found a restaurant called Kona Grill. It was FANTASTIC. The menu was diverse so it fit all our cravings. The prices were decent and the service phenomenal. Everything we ordered came out delicious and we can not wait to go back.

This was one of many weekends that I am able to explore. I can’t wait to see what else Texas has to offer! Here is to more adventures, more food to eat and more memories to make!

Setbacks Don’t Mean To Just Give Up

Setbacks don’t mean you get to give up and stop trying. They happen sometimes and we have to push through, carefully and willfully. Since being here in my “A” school I have been going through my chaotic whirlwind. One of the things that help me clear my mind is working out. Well, I have micro tears in my Achilles tendon from some of the things we had to do here and it has been an annoying setback. Even though I can’t do the hardcore extreme workouts I would like to do, I don’t let it completely put me on my butt. I still manage to find ways to workout and also take care of myself so that I don’t injure myself further. I also have someone who gives me support and also tells me when I should take a rest day so that I can heal properly and quickly. Always remember to stay positive, there is always a silver lining to anything. Don’t let your mind get into an “I can’t do this” mindset. It will make things much harder for yourself, trust me I have been there. Keep your head up, your spirits high and your mindset positive. Don’t let a setback get in the way of your goal.
