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!!

Mixed Blessings...





I would like to thank everyone for their ideas about what I can do since I hit the 30 pound weight loss and the "Crossroads" place where I am. I am still thinking about this very much. I did up the carbs a bit yesterday, allowing for some potato salad (have not had that in ages). I jut found my stomach feels more bloated than usual, but then who knows ? It may just be a 'girl thang.'

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Today I worked out for two hours at the gym.


Lunch : I had a mixed meat (turkey, ham, chicken) sandwich on my low carb homemade bread.


For supper, bacon & mayo on whole wheat toast.


Not much exciting today. (I can stand a week without excitement).


I continue to monitor our son's progress with his meds (still on three as we speak.)

Only upside is that he goes to bed rather EARLY, giving me some much needed time to myself.


I saw two good movies over the weekend : The Secret Life of Bees and Nights in Rodanthe (gals this is a MUST -SEE movie .. Richard Gere :P )


Have a Blessed evening, everyone. It's almost Mardi Gras time here, and MY BIRTHDAY COMING UP SOON :))


Blessings,


Bayoubabe

Not just for girls... for people who love good movies I think.. hehe I watched Nights in Rodanthe last week.. I was in the right mood and I loved it although it was an emotional rollercoaster and if you didnt watch carefully you would not have a clue about the wild horses showing up on the beach... :) on a side note..What a great place to live* ponders how much a place would cost...

We saw The Secret Lives of Bees recently too. Both of us liked it.

So, when is your birthday? Any special plans?
