About Me

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!!

Living the Low Carb Challenge

(click on image for larger view)

This is in response to Jimmy Moore's challenge of posting our Low Carb meals online. So here it is :) I don't count calories, I count carbs !!

For Lunch I had : Del Monte mixed veggies, Ham & Cheese on Wheat.

For supper I had a Hamburger patti (homemade) with a slice of Kraft cheese on top.

I generally go to the gym three times a week. I do the treadmill, elliptical, and bicycle. I also work out on the weight machines. (no free weights)

I do not eat breakfast usually. Just not hungry in the morning. I eat around 11 am, and then later in the afternoon.

I drink lots of water, and try to use those single pack mixes to give the water some flavor. Every now and then I throw in a Diet Coke.

My most recent purchase was a bread machine. Now that I have all of the ingredients for Atkins low carb bread.. I cannot wait to try it out. My goal is to make my own 3 - 5 carb per slice bread.
