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!!

Onto Better Thangs...

After inserting foot in mouth yesterday about the amount of carbs in a Mc Donald's sausage patti, I am quite relieved to find out it was just 1 or 2 carbs.

Onto BETTER things. The weather has been clear and crisp, but COLD.. I must admit that My exercise has slowed down a bit, but I will be better at it today ! I'm generally an 'outside person'.. love to walk, to explore nature, etc. Gimme butterflies and blue skies ANYTIME.. (sounds like the name for a new song title -- huh ?) LOL.

For lunch today, I had a nice salad consisting of crispy lettuce, tomatoes, pepper jack & mozzarella cheese, pepperoni slices, and yes, a cut up hot dog !! On top was drizzled Kraft Zesty Italian Marinade and Salad Dressing.

I hit the local CVS for their Sunday sale, The Energizer batteries (with coupons) were the "hot item' of the day.

Today I exercised by walking 3 miles to a Leslie Sansone DVD, and rode my bicycle with my son one mile around our town.

For dinner, I had 1/2 cup mixed veggies, pepperoni slices, turkey breast, ham and a diet coke. Might even splurge on a sugar free popsicle later :)

Hi bayoubabe! Thanks for stopping by my house. You had a good day today. And congrats on the 15 pounds!! Thanks for reminding me about the water. I drank a boatload yesterday but slacked today. I can really tell a difference when I drink it. Have a great week now, ya hear!
