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!!

It's My Party, and I'll Cry If I Want to !!

Today is my 47 th birthday , which I also share with Elizabeth Taylor, Chelsea Clinton & Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

I was scheduled to be in Biloxi with my dear husband this Friday and Saturday night.. but of course, the bet laid plans are usually NONE. Two days ago, I started coughing all day and night. I ended up spending a couple of hours at the doctor's office today. I have a very bad upper respiratory infection. I'm on an antibiotic and something to make the chest congestion cough up


On a good note, when at the doctors office today, my blood pressure was 110/78. I weighed 133 pounds. So things are starting to look better. I think the reason I gained those two pounds last time I weighed myself was because I weighed myself AFTER I excerised, AND after I drank three 16.9 ounce bottles of water.

Also, yesterday was my brother's liver surgery. It lasted almost 9 hours. He is resting as I call it 'comfortably numb', he has about another three weeks in the hospital. Please continue to pray for his recovery.

Food I ate today :

Catfish, veggies and a bun.

Seafood gumbo , potato salad and a Diet Rite Soda.

To die for -- I purchased a birthday cake and at a BIG slice.

So, for today, I was officially OFF of my low carb diet. Its been a week since I exercised, so when I feel up to it, I will start walking again.

Oh well, I just need to find my 'niche', my 'groove', and get back into the swing of things. I just feel so darn LOUSY> Hey, its MY birthday party and I'll cry if I want to ! lol

Blessings to each and everyone one of you..

My thoughts and prayers are with your brother.

Please rest and take good care of yourself. Show that respiratory infection who's boss!

Glad to hear your brother is out of surgery and resting. Sorry about your illness. It could be brought on by stress with your son being sick and your brothers surgery.
Sending up some prayers for your family. (((HUGS)))
