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!!

Low Carb Dieting on Vacation -- Hello San Antonio, TX !!!

Greetings, from Texas, where everything is BIGGER, including the FOOD ! Yes, this weary traveler finally found her hotel in San Antonio.. and am happy to see the exercise room AND swimming pool !!

Time to cool off AND work off those extra carbs eaten today.

For breakfast, I ate eggs and Sausage. I had a nice apple and yogurt thingy from Mc Donald's as an inbetween snack. For lunch, was an appetizing grilled chicken salad. I miss my Coke Zero, but am much appreciative of the Diet coke.

Our family is settling in now. I hope to post more as the day progresses.

Please post your dieting tips for eating on vacation.

Have a Blessed Day !

My top tip is to keep healthy LC snacks on hand - nuts, for instance. Also, don't be shy ... ask for food substitutions while eating out.

Example: If you order a chicken dish that typically comes with mashed potatoes ... ask the waiter if you can have another side instead - maybe something you've seen elsewhere on the menu such as asparagus or spinach.

Have fun on your time away! :-)

Thanks for the tips, Harry. We're right next to a Marie Callendar's. Boy, the menu look absolutely appetizing...

I exercised in the pool doing water aerobics for about 50 minutes tonite.

It sure is HOT here !

Enjoy your time away! And just as Harry said, you can always ask for different sides and things to keep your eating lc-friendly. It can also save a bit of money to shop for snacks at the supermarket instead of eating out and the bonus is you only get exactly what you want. :)

Are you kidding me? This is a cold front, compared to last week! Welcome to Texas, as they say.
But, I love it here, so I'm not complaining....
Hope you have a wonderful time on the River Walk!
