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!!

Get Fit! Oprah’s Trainer Shows You How

Get Fit! Oprah’s Trainer Shows You How


I have something to report... I've gained a few pounds ! Not like I'm actually TRYING... but our gym now offers water aerobics, so I thought I'd change the fitness routine round a bit. This type of exercising hits areas of my body I did not know existed. I believe its even a STRONGER workout than the usual weight/cardio machines !

I am not sure if it is because of the wonderful watermelon and cantelope we're enjoying ... or the fact that I'm working muscles I have never worked before.. what do yall think ?

Summer sure is flying by fast. School starts in less than a month out here. I'm head for Texas in a week or so for vacation.

I hope everyone enjoys the article below :) Have a Blessed wonderful day !

That's a great article, thanks for sharing!!

It's the dead of winter here so it's nice to hear it's hot and summery somewhere in the world lol. Enjoy it while you can :)

I'm in two minds about water aerobics compared to other sorts of exercise, though I definitely think a swimmer's body looks a lot better than some stocky body builder's body can. Stronger though? I dunno. Wouldn't it be hard to increase the resistance as your fitness improves and your body adapts?

Thanks for the Oprah trainer link! I'll bet that working different muscle groups could be the cause of the small gain.
