- 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 Officially Springtime !!
Spring has Sprung !! But don't tell that to anyone in the Big Easy who experienced hours of rainfall last night followed by a cold front. There is actually snow flurries reported in Alexandria, Louisiana today !!
It's been quite a busy weekend. We had a birthday party for our son. Try dieting with five 11 year olds wanting pizza, cookie cake, chips, hot dogs and dip !!
Today, I went to the gym and worked out for almost two hours, all cardio. Treadmill, exercise bike and elleptical machine.
My weight loss is down a whopping 1 1/2 pounds. (Better than nothing right ?).. this grand total took all of three weeks to achieve. I just wish it would come off QUICKER, but then again, isn't that every low carber's dreams ??
To avoid all the birthday goodies being eaten around me, I opted for a chicken salad sanwich on whole wheat. (Remember, absolutely NO DOUBLE FIBER bread for this gal !)
This week proves to be a busy one. Our son made the local baseball team, so there will be practices, a scrimmage on Wednesday, etc.
My 30th high school reunion is this Saturday, I need something to wear !! Should I dress for summer or winter Ha.. need to purchase a new dress too !
So Spring has Sprung in New Orleans, At least the scale has not....
