This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Be Wise.... Exercise !!

Well, I had NO weight loss last week. I should have known. I had a sick kid home on Friday (my usual workout day.) & did not even do an ounce of exercise this weekend.

When I weighed in, the guy at the gym would not even give me the 1/2 pound I thought I had lost ! LOL. So, lesson learned. even if I can't go to the gym, there is always SOMETHING I can do at home to exercise.

I have the kids home for TWO WEEKS Christmas break, AND the gym has less hours open because of the Christmas holiday, So I need to do some kind of exercise at home.... I know, woulda, coulda, shoulda... ;( I have only myself to blame.

For lunch today, I had three slices of bacon on wheat bread, lettuce and tomato. Tonight, I am fixing tuna fish and egg salad.

I watched the movie "7 Pounds, with Will Smith"... just feel so sad... VERY dramatic movie.

You can do an amazingly good work out at home and it doesnt rewquire you to have any equipment. Do compound exercise such as squats, dead lifts and push ups. Squats you can do leaning against the wall and pretend there is a chair behind your butt or you can actually put a chair. Dead lifts you can use water gallon or anything that has weight and oush ups is push up or modified one. You can also do jump jacks. i guarantee a 15 minutes of this intense exercise will do more for you than an hour of gym at times!

By the way, re the barbecue slaw-I forgot to say it's vinegar-based, not mayo-based. Anyway, have you thot of lowering carbs to lose versus depending on exercise?

I have not really thought of lowering carbs. I just try not to go over 60 carbs per day. Some days I'm lower than 60.

Whats working for me IS the exercise and the counting of the carbs, so I am doing it.

I only blame myself for not keeping up with the exercise.
