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!!

"Toned" Down !!

I exercised to Leslie Sansone's 5 mile DVD this morning at home (bout an hour). Also went to the gym to work out for about two hours. I did bout an hour of cardio (bicycle, elliptical, & treadmill), followed by an hour of the weight machines. ( I worked on my tummy, arms, and legs)

I weighed in at 137 today, DOWN BY 1 !! (And who thought "1" Was such a LONELY number after all??) When you add up the '1's" they are GREAT !!! So far, I've lost a grand total of 27 pounds since Oct. 7. .. and kept it off.

For lunch today, I am having tuna and egg salad sandwich on my low carb homemade bread. (I made another loaf yesterday.) Fresh strawberry and cantaloupe on the side.

Did anyone happen to notice the figures on those guys and gals at the Screen Actors Guild Awards Last Night ?? Wowza !! I just loved all those bodies, and they were not only toned, but did NOT in any way look 'muscular'.. that's how I want to end up... all over toned. I have the giggles in the back of my arms, and this is a new area that I want to firm up.

Any suggestions for exercises ?? Or any url's that have video's for them ?

Anyone know when we are expecting Jimmy Moore back ?? I miss his Low Carbin blogs !!

Keep the comments a comin !
