About Me

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!!

"Getting Ready"



This is a test. It is only a test.

If this were your actual life, you would be given better instructions.

Life is a test, isn't it ?

I spent most of the afternoon and into the early evening at the orthopedist's office with my son yesterday. He had sprained his foot, this time playing football with some neighborhood kids a couple of weeks ago, and is only now coming to complain about it ?? Right.

The orthopedist gave him some type of 'sandal' to slide his foot into that has velro straps. Another two weeks and he should be as good as new. Reminder : This is ONLY a test. LOL

I worked out today for 1 1/2 hours at the gym. Switching up my routing and 'confusing' the muscle memory really seems to be paying off. I find that doing the weight machines FIRST, then the cardio, it gives me more stamina. I am going for more repetitions, and less weight.

Breakfast :

4 Jimmy Dean Sausages on wheat

Lunch :

Grilled Chicken Breast, Broccili with cheese , Diet Coke

For Supper : Chicken strips, one boiled egg, and half a dinner roll.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm really in a happy mood lately. I just hate fighting traffic, waiting for the doctor, etc... But at least I"M NOT THE ONE BEING SEEN BY THE DOCTOR. So that really is A GOOD THANG !!

Have a Blessed Evening !

That wouldn't be much of a test for me, Bayoubabe. I wear bunny slippers everywhere I go. :)

Seriously though, great going on the exercise. I'm sure that's contributing to your happy state o' mind!

Keep up the fine work!

I need to work on that a lil more myself. I love to walk outside. It's 0 degrees F. here this morning with a wind chill of -25 so that is out for me today. LOL
