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!!

You gain a few -- loose a few.

Went to the gym & worked out for two hours this morning. I weighed myself and it said I had gained two pounds !! GRRRRR.

I guess since I had not been to the gym since last Wednesday, it is starting to show. This week I upped my carb intake because I thought i was good I had lost the 30 pounds... well, I'm going to have to reevaluate THAT train of thought.

For todays lunch, I had tuna fish on my homemade low carb bread & some ground meat cooked with egglplant.

Quite a combo aye ?

The weather is beautiful and parades are rolling today. Yall have a Blessed One !@
Tonight we went to the Bacchus Parade in New Orleans, double decker floats & throws ! I got hit in the side of the head by my eye with a bunch of beads about three feet in length. They knocked me off of my feet and I was dazed a wee bit. We had quite a haul of beads and stuffed animals. Our kids enjoyed their first REAL night time parade in UPTOWN in The Big Easy.
On the way back home, we stopped by Wendy's. I had a double hamburger patti cut up into one of the $1.50 salads on the side. It was pretty tasty.
We got in more exercise, as we had to actually WALK to our car and the parade route.
Wheeeeeee !!

Good job on the exercise!

The weight shift has got to be frustrating. Maybe you can think of it as your body's way of trying to tell you what it really needs. Little blips like this will ultimately allow you to find the right dietary and exercise balance for you.
