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!!

One step forward, two steps back..

Just when I thought our son was getting BETTER, he is still sick with his sinus infection (cough now), so I spent the majority of the afternoon at the doctor's office and waiting for prescriptions to be filled (he's on THREE). I just want him to get well... He gets SO tired in the evening , he is in bed for 7:30 - 8:00 pm

Today, I went to the gym and worked out for an hour.

For lunch I made a hamburger patti, on my homemade bread with lettuce tomato and pickles.

For supper, I made a mixed meat sandwich consisting of turkey, ham, etc and a slice of cheese on 2 slices of wheat bread.

I"m just pooped out after this afternoon of traveling. It rained most of the day here as well, so it kinda set the mood I am in. Can you tell ??

Hang in there sweetie! So sorry to here the doctor's report!!!!! It's got to be so distressing as a mommy to have a sick baby!!! Take care of himself and yourself. Rest!!!

Your sandwiches and fresh made low carb bread sound so great!

:hugs: and hang in there.

Hi, I just wanted to stop by and answer your questions on my blog.

You are right, there are carbs in apples. The recipe would be a suitable treat for someone who was at the stage that they were adding some carbs back in (like after induction).

GFCF stands for Gluten Free and Casein free. I have just recently discovered that I am gluten intolerant and dairy intolerant. So for a short while I have been mostly concentrating on figuring out how to eat that way and not on carbs. I will be returning to low carb by the end of the week though so I have been researching recipes that are suitable for me to eat. From now on, the recipes should be both GFCF and low carb.

Sorry to hear the little one still isn't better. My big one(he's 19-LOL) had that sinus stuff going on in January. He finally got over it, but it took awhile, 3 doctors visits and 4 different medications before he did. It is some nasty stuff going around. Rest is the best medicine. For you and him. Hang in there.

That one I know about...sick kids have got to be the worst but it's even harder when their on meds.

Homemade bread...that I want to know more about...I don't have a bread machine.
