About Me

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!!

Back in da Saddle Again....

I'm back in the saddle again


Out where a friend is a friend


Where the longhorn cattle feed


On the lowly gypsum weed


Back in the saddle again


Oh my goodness ! I feel like such a lonesome tumbleweed.


Its been the most hectic four days of this year. (and the year's just begun !). I'm back in the saddle again. Our youngest was sick for FOUR days... yes count them. I've been w/o sleep for a majority of three of them. Did he have the flu ? Strep ? Nope. He just had a really bad sinus infection -- so bad he had fever of 103+ for the last four days that never broke. Things got so bad yesterday, that I did the suppository thang, as he was beginning to throw up. FINALLY the fever broke last night. Just how many doses of Tylenol and Motrin did he have ? I failed to count it was that many.

Guess things have a way of slowing us down, don't they ? Not only did it slow my son down (We are catching up on three days of missed schoolwork here). I have not been to the gym since last Friday ! I have been doing the treadmill when I could, but just did not muster up the energy to do the Leslie Sansone DVD's.


I plan to go to the gym tomorrow (crossing fingers here and praying he's better tomorrow enough to go to school). and I'm going to the gym Friday as well. I doubt I've lost any weight, but hey, I know I haven't gained any, so that's good, right ?


I need something to hold onto here. My sanity -- oh wait @! I think that left on the second day.


Cooking-wise.. I have a loaf of low-carb bread baking in the bread machine and a low carb recipe consisting of boneless skinless chicken breasts in the slow cooker. (Can't wait to try this as it is my FIRST low carb slow-cooker recipe. IF things come out good. I'll post pics.)


Thank you for your patience. I know mine went out the window DAYS ago !


Have a Blessed Day !

Glad to hear your son is feeling better. Poor guy, 103 temp is tough.

Hang in there Mom, sounds like your handling things great.

WOW, you did get some height on that bread. I haven't made any more. I did go to the store and picked up the supplies to make a loaf.

Yikes! What a tough stretch you guys had! I'm so sorry to hear of it. But I'm glad that it appears to be passed now.

I hope your slow cooker chicken dish turned out well. :)

Please take good care!
