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!!

Today, I exercised for 1 1/2 hours at the gym. I intend to do the treadmill for 20 minutes later on today.

For lunch, I had string beans with diced ham. A hamburger fresh off the bbq, lettuce, tomato and my homemade low carb bread. I am also topping my bread with the sweet hot mustard from Hickory Farms.. (amazing stuff !) I have different cheeses : Smoked, cheddar, and 'three cheese onion wedge slices -- consisting of Monterey jack, aged & mild cheddar cheese, also compliments of Hickory Farms.

Their 75% off sale may still be going on at http://www.hickoryfarms.com/, OR check your local mall if the booths are still set up there to save on shipping.

I"m feeling a bit under the weather today, congested head and drippy nose.. but hey at least I got in the workout, and LOST ANOTHER POUND !! Yippee.! Now, I'm weighing in at 138, for a total of 26 POUNDS LOST , since Oct. 7th, 2008.

Nice going, Bayoubabe! Congrats on the loss!

Your exercise routine is really great. The food looks wonderful as well.

I hope you can beat the cold. :)

Thanks. I just have to take it easy tomorrow & pop a few OTC cold meds. I have not been sick in three months, so I was probably due anyway.

Congrats on the continued weight loss! Hope your cold leaves very quickly too.
