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!!

Had to have it...

Last week, I decided to have it. You know something food-wise that you crave. For me it was HOT BREAD PUDDING. The smell in the supermarket overwhelmed the senses. When I got home I at half of the bread pudding. it was SO good. I even licked my fingers.

Later on that evening... I found out that TOO much sugar.. well, goes right through ya. I was sick for the entire next day.. Like a kid in a candy shop that ate too much...

Go figure.


Today I worked out for two hours at the gym. I had not worked out since my overload.. So it had been almost 5 days. It was slow going for sure. Now its everything in moderation. Food AND exercise.
Lunch : Subway Turkey and Ham Green Salad with Ranch Dressing.
Dessert : Strawberries and Whipped cream

My advice to yall is to NOT overdo eating. It may look and taste good... but sometimes too much of a good thing is NOT good. I know firsthand.

Please drop me a line and let me know how yall are doing.

Have a Blessed day !

Hey Jean,
I know the feeling, but ohhhhh its always sooooooo good while your eating it. I always have the swollen joints after a carb up too. That leaves me feeling miserable. Will I EVER learn???? Someday I hope. :(

Anyway, glad your back at it. Hang in there.

Good job getting back on track, BayouBabe. That's the key. We all make missteps from time to time - planned or otherwise. But 2 hours of exercise and a solid day's menu is a good kick start back in the right direction. Well done!

Yes, it was funny. I also remember hubby having a favorite shirt, you know the kind that you detest, but he thinks it is the best thing since sliced bread :)
