RAM 5K & Park Time

Hey everyone!! I sure hope you’re having a great weekend!

For breakfast I had 1 ff pancake w/strawberries, an egg, and a BAGEL THIN for a total of 6 points. I was so excited yesterday when I found these at Sam’s Club, I couldn’t wait to try one out!DSC07014

Kyle and I ran a 5K today. It was a benefit for Nolan, the son of one of my co-workers. DSC07017Nolan’s story:

Nolan was born a perfectly healthy little boy April 20th, 2009.  On August 18th, Nolan was at daycare and went down for his morning nap.  After Nolan stopped crying his babysitter went in to check on him and found that he had stopped breathing.  When the paramedics arrived Nolan was without a pulse.  Nolan was taken to the hospital where they were able to get a slight pulse after his brain went without oxygen for about 20 minutes.  He was then transferred to a children's hospital.  While at Children's Mercy Nolan was heavily sedated to control seizures and let his body rest.  Due to the lack of oxygen that Nolan’s brain suffered from the doctors said that Nolan will probably never be able to walk, talk, see, feed himself, or live a normal life.  Nolan was released from the hospital on the 6th of September.  At this time Nolan receives physical, occupational, visual and hearing therapy at home.  He also receives all food through a gastric feeding tube that was placed while in the hospital.

So sad! I can’t even imagine having a healthy baby for 6 months and then something tragic like that happens. We were happy to run and support him.

Kyle finished at 27:12 & my time was 28:38. We ran the first 2.5 miles together and Kyle went ahead the last .6. DSC07015

  I grabbed a few grapes post race for 1 point. DSC07016

As soon as we got home I mixed up a protein smoothie for each of us. Mine ended up being too big, so I double fisted it! ;) I ended up though only able to drink just 1 glass. DSC07018 In the blender:

  • 1 1/2c strawberries
  • 1/2 kiwi
  • 1/8c milk
  • 1 small banana
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • Total – 4 1/2 points…my serving 2 points.

After a little relaxing we went to a local park with our neighbors. They boys loved to feed the animals…it was so cute!DSC07019  DSC07021

After our time at the park we picked up a pizza for supper. Sunday is Kyle’s cheat day and pizza is his favorite…so I gave in! I had this X2 for a total of 15 points. DSC07040

To finish off Kyle’s “cheat day” we needed some ice cream! Abby got to go along for the ride too!  DSC07042

We went to a local ice cream “hot spot”, The Dariette!DSC07043

They are famous for their lemon ice cream and that is just what I go t! I love how Abby is eyeing my cone!! I am estimating my cone at 6 points. DSC07044

It’s been great weekend! I’m off to enjoy the rest of it with my man!
