RIce Crispy Treats

Today Kobe and I decided to make some rice crispy treats. He loves to cook with me and I let him help all the time. Today Daddy left to go grocery shopping with his dad, cause he takes us out to the commissary so we can get our groceries cheaper, so we decided we'd make a little surprise for when he got home. But honestly its not for daddy its for us :) but we won't tell him that. haha

Kobe really had fun I let him cook it all by himself, with minor assistance from mommy.
Kobe is getting so big!

Weight loss

Well there isn't much to report this week I haven't lost anything :( I think my problem right now is I have been stressin a little bit about going back to work and leaving Keaton. He hasn't been eating good for his daddy so I'm a little bothered by this. But I've still been working out and doing my thing. I have to admit I don't think I've been eating as good this past week due to all the chaos going on right now. This last week I think I was going or doing something everyday. So today I'm not doing ANYTHING lol. I'll admit I'm being lazy today haha. Well here's a picture of me this week not much change but thats ok.

Crispy Ranch Chicken Recipe

Last night we tried a new recipe from sparklepeople.com I have to say it was quite delicious. But next time I will make one change on it which usually I make a lot of changes to recipe's I find.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 pkg ranch dressing mix
2 cups crispy rice cereal
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 eggs beaten
dried parlsey(my change)

Directions
Mix rice cereal, ranch mix parmesan cheese and Parsley together. Dip chicken in egg then into the cereal mixture to coat evenly. Arrange chicken on baking sheet, I put a cooling rack on the backing sheet to optimize cruchiness cause if they lay on the baking sheet they will be soggy on one side. Bake at 375 for 45 min. Turn them over half way through.

weight loss updates

So I went to the doctor today for my 6 week weight in. Its been 6 weeks since I committed to him that I was going to lose weight. I have lost 10 pounds since I saw him last and he was excited to see that I'm losing weight at that rate. He said any faster and he'd fear that I would put it back on. When I saw him last we tested my blood sugars because after I had my oldest, Kobe, I became insulin resistant. Basically my body wouldn't absorb the insulin I produced so it would produce extra. Another words I was border line diabetic. But when he tested it 6 weeks ago he said it was on the low end. Well when I go running towards the end of my run I notice I start feeling REALLY weird. I described to him the way I feel and he said my sugars are dropping TOO low so therefore he's taking me off my sugar medications!! I'm so pumped! Whats funny about the weight though I weighted myself before I got dressed this morning and I was at 308 and then got dressed and it went up to 313! 5 pounds of clothes really?!? But he agreed that's normal lol. So I'm saying I'm at 308 so that makes me down 41 pounds since I had Keaton 12 weeks ago.

So the training for the 5k has been going really well, I train every other day. I'm supposed to rest the off days or do a different work out and let me tell you I'm so dang sore for the running that I don't want to do anything else. HAHA I was supposed to go run last night but it was SO hot and SO humid I didn't go. Not to mention there wasn't a breath of air out there! So the dr was excited to hear I'm training for a 5k, he also runs and asked me when my first race was going to be. I told him I'm targeting for Sept 18th at the Enid Land Run. He said awesome I'll be there too! I'm like YIKES! I'm scared I won't be able to do it this is something so HUGE for me, something I've NEVER even thought about doing. Heck growing up running was a joke! So I really need to just get all negative thoughts out and keep telling myself i can do it cause I don't want to convince myself I can't, cause I really want to be able to. But thats enough for today I guess. Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week!

Keaton 11 weeks

Today Keaton had a check-up appointment plus shots. He did really good with the shots, he's up to 14 pounds and is 24 inches long. He's a growing boy!

5k

Ok so I'm making this public and want everyone to know so you can keep me on track and hopefully I'll keep updating my status on it. I've decided I'm going to run a 5k race on Sept 18th. Its a 10k & 5K run/walk here in Enid. I have a couple people who've committed to go with me so I'm pretty excited but scared because I've committed to something so big! But I know I didn't update my weightloss this week and its because my scale wasn't working on sunday. But I got it to working on Wednesday so I'm down 42 pounds. I'm feeling really good.
