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!!

Blame it on the C-O-K-E !!!

Yes, Blame it on the Diet Coke Zero, SHAME on you !

I weighed myself this past Thursday, only to find that I did NOT loose any weight at all ! How discouraging.. ! So, I thought the next couple of days things I may have done that could be the culprit.

I was eating between 40 - 60 carbs. I was drinking two Diet Coke Zero's a day. Blame it on the COKE ~~

New day, new plan. So with game plan in tow today, I decided to cut down the number of carbs per day. NO COKE ZERO, JUST WATER

I had a chicken pattie, some mixed fruit, baby potatoes, and two slices of white bread for a total of 47 carbs. I threw in a diet popsicle for a treat.

I exercised at the gym for one hour today, and took a one hour body flow class.

Hi Bayoubabe, Happy Birthday to you!

I know how you feel. My favorite carbonated drink is Diet Mountain Dew. It's the one thing I can't seem to let go of lol.

I might also blame it on the wheat...

It seems to spike blood sugar even more than it should considering the carb count. Have you read Dr Davis's blog? He talks about it there. Anyway, hang in there.

And btw, i <3 NOLANS- I went a year ago for Christmas break and I was amazed. So few cities have good architecture and are walkable in the USA...and the people are so friendly! So much so than in Miami.
