Rainy Wednesday + March Madness Update

He looks cute here but wow has this boy been grumpy since he got his shots  =(

How is it going on this dreary and rainy Wednesday?  Today has been a bit crazy around here.  I got Rylie off to school, got myself ready, cleaned up a bit, caught up on my DVR'd stuff (important, I know, ha) and then off to Rowan's 2 month check up (in the pouring rain).  The news was all good.  Rowan is 22 1/2 inches long (he's grown 2 1/2 inches) and 12 lbs 8 oz.  So he's definitely growing but still smaller than Rylie was at 2 months old, she was really a chunk of a baby!  My pediatrician said he's on target for all of his 2 month milestones and looks perfectly healthy.  She wrote down his surgery date and said she was going to add him to her prayer list at church (how sweet).  Then he got 3 shots!  Ugh, Rylie barely cried for her first shots, Rowan screamed like I've never heard in his whole 2 months.  My poor baby. After Rowan's appointment we ran through and got lunch for me (a salad, yay!) and picked Rylie up a little early since we were in the area.  Look how adorable she is in her rain coat.  I love this girl!

Tomorrow we're planning on taking it easy around here because Friday will be SO busy.  We're headed up to Atlanta to meet Ree Drummond!  I'm so excited, not just to meet one of my favorite blogger/authors, but to spend a day with my sister and sweet friend Kathlyn.  Who knows what else we'll get to do while we're up there, hopefully lunch somewhere cool and possibly a little shopping!  I'll be leaving Rylie here with Jason and bringing my boy.  He's usually pretty easy going, so lets hope Friday is no different.  Now onto my March Madness update.

If you remember my post from last week, I was joining with a few other bloggers and vowing to get fit together.  Last week I introduced myself and my goals for the month, so today I'll tell you how I'm doing on my goals.  My first goal was to drink 8 or more cups a day of water.  Easy. I've been doing that everyday without a problem.  I rarely drink more...but I easily reach my goal, so yay!  The second goal was 3 structured workouts plus 1 or more long walks with the kids.  Done!  Last week I did 2 days of Jillian Michaels DVD's.  I have a full arsenal of her workouts but lately I've been sticking to Shredding one day and 6week6pack one day and the third day I always run as my workout.  I'd like to add one more day of working out eventually to make 2 running days and 2 cross training days.  Someday.  I love the walks with my sister because those make me sweat AND their fun.  My last goal was to make healthier choices and eat more REAL food.  I've done well, not perfect, but I've done much better.  I've really tried to eliminate the junk and just think about what I'm eating and I feel great.  I'm all about the 90/10 rule.  90% of the time I'm trying to eat really good and 10% fun.  I still need to get my booty to the store and buy more fruits and veggies, but it won't be today!

Friday I'll be posting a recipe for a Bean Burger that I tried yesterday and LOVE.  It's super simple, great for you because it's high in fiber and protein, and great because it's one of those "use what you have" recipes that you can just improvise with.  I will definitely be adding them to my lunch menu each week.  I hope ya'll have a great day and stay dry!
