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!!

"Teas" & "Fuze" Me

Harry left a comment on yesterday's blog about teas. I love teas ! Yes, especially when you are feeling like crap, teas have a way of working magic on you.

My favorite brands are Yogi Tea and Celestial Seasonings teas. I like chamomile organic Yogi Tea & Candy cane lane green tea & Gingerbread spice Herbal caffeine free Celestial Seasonings teas.
Thanks Harry, for stopping by my blog, and posting such a sweet suggestion to make me feel better.


Onto another subject..

I just love Fuze Drinks... they are low carb, come in a variety of flavors and offer an alternative to the water or tea drinker. HOWEVER, It was not until I actually LOOKED on the label and noticed that in little letters "LOW CARB", but other than that, they look the same. I thought ALL FUZE drinks were low in carbs.

I am kinda like the gal that makes groceries, and brings home tomato PASTE instead of tomato sauce. Cest la vie !!
I exercised for two hours at the gym today AND walked 4 miles with Leslie Sansone walking DVD.
For lunch, I had chicken salad on my low carb breadmachine bread. I had Cheetos puffs 100 Calorie packs for a snack.
For supper, I am planning on eating the other half of my Chef Salad with Kraft dressing.
Have a Blessed Weekend !

Thanks for sharing your tea favorites. That's always helpful to know. Helps me figure out new things to try! :)

2 hours of working out and 4 miles of walking?! Holy guacamole! That's fantastic!

You're doing great, Bayoubabe! What a great example you're setting!

PS - the "word verification" that I had to type, in order for my comments to be posted was "MANGA" ... in Italian, that means eat! :)

As always, Harry you brighten up the dull spot in my day.. we need to get OCt some TEA :)

I tried to punch up the subject a bit with "Teas Me", but I thought that it might be a bit much for a young lad like yourself to handle -- NOT ! LOL.

The Leslie Sansone DVD is great. I can walk at home, and in under an hour I can walk 5 miles, IF I wanted to.

I'm feeling SO much better today, -- hey I even washed my truck.
