- 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!!

Rhythm of the Falling Rain !
Let the rain come down ! Seems like forever since we've had a day without rain here in the Big Easy ! Get out your wellies and umbrella -- looks like this low pressure system is here to stay !
As the rain and the snow comes down from heaven,
and to not return to it without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth :
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve purpose for which I sent it...
Two of my favorite verses for rainy days like today :)
Before the rain, I managed to get in an hour of water aerobics at the gym --
followed by an hour of exercise 15 min each, on the treadmill, elliptical, and exercise bike.
You can image by the time I got home, I was famished ! For lunch, I ate an egg salad and Ham sandwich on two slices of wheat. I also cut up a banana and a few strawberries for a nice fruit salad on the side.
Its been a while since I had fruit (because they contain SO many carbs!), so I'll just have to watch the carb count for the rest of the day.
Next, I have to finish cooking the white beans with ham over rice, and some sweet cornbread for the rest of my family this evening.
Hope yall have a very BLESSED, DRY day !
