Today , I exercised by doing a 4 mile walk to Leslie Sansone's "Walk Away the Pounds" Express.
This took about an hour. Anyone that can keep up with Leslie, is great in my book !
I ate at our local Chinese restaurant. It was a 'buffet' type meal, where you pick what you want to eat. I had a small slice of meatloaf, some of those steamed veggies, a couple of different kinds of chicken (that was not sweet or breaded), and a diet coke. My fortune cookie said for me to learn how to say the word "Doctor'' in Chinese. It also, instead of giving me a fortune, gave me great powerball numbers and said 'lady luck is on your side." So , of course, I had to purchase a lottery ticket, using those numbers. We'll see If I'm a millionaire before morning !
Super Foods & Super Denise Austin !!
I really really like Denise Austin... as a matter of fact.. I was a follower of hers for approx. 25 years ! She was on Lifetime TV it seemed like forever, and one day last year... boop, she was gone ! Just like that, no mention, nada. I still subscribe to her e-newsletter, and she had a nice article in there today, thought I'd mention it !

Almonds: A source of "good" fat, almonds can help your heart by lowering bad cholesterol!
Berries: They're jammed with vitamins — particularly vitamin C — but new research has found these sweet little sensations to be ace disease fighters too, helping to prevent bladder infections and even cancers, among other illnesses.
Broccoli: Folate, vitamin C, calcium — broccoli is packed with all these awesome nutrients. Now researchers think it might also fight cancer!

Salmon: Low in calories, easy to prepare, and amazingly good for you — what's not to love about salmon? And the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon are great for your heart!
Olive oil: Another good fat! Besides making your food incredibly tasty, olive oil can also protect you from heart disease.
Green tea: So much research has touted the benefits of green tea, it's hard to know where to begin! But here's a sample: A Japanese study in 2006 showed that green tea lowered the risk of death from all causes. How's that for a superfood?
- New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
- 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!!
