- 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!!

It's Baseball Season !!
It's officially baseball season in our household. I'm embracing it this year.. I'm not the typical ball mom, as our oldest is 23, our youngest is almost 11. I just turned 48 ! Where does the time fly ??
Most of the baseball moms in our group are ten years younger than I am, and I kind of feel out of place. They bring along their toddlers, strollers and Mc Donalds... I'm the one you find going around the walking path for an hour while practice is going on, then settling into my own chair for a great low carb snack/lunch, sipping on very cold water.
Our son has moved 'up' in the age bracket, now playing with the 11-12 year old 'franchise' team,-- members being from various locations around the parish. His schedule is very demanding ; practice on wednesday and thursday and sunday night, for now.
So where does this leave me ? I'm at a ball park for hours... so I can either be bored out of my mind, or EMBRACE it. I chose the latter. I plan on using walking path as much as possible.. I noticed a basketball hoop, along the back of the ball park. Should I bring my own ball and start my own league ? :) LOL
I'm always looking for the opportunity kick into spring.. its here, .. seems baseball season and spring are one in the same... at least try telling that to a bunch of tweens at the ball park !!
Enjoy your outdoor time as much as you can. If you have the opportunity to walk, run, etc, then do it @! Always bring a change of clothes, extra layers for evening, and lots of low carb snacks/food and WATER to hydrate !!
Have a Blessed Day !!
