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!!

WEIGH IN TIME !! Do you REALLY know what condition your condition is in ?

It's been a week since I started back on a low-carb dieting again. What a week ! I joined a gym, learned some new recipes, and my body has finally become acclimated to the low carb regime !

Today was the big weigh in. I lost a total of four pounds ! Most of it was probably due to the excess water, and then probably one or two from the exercise. Either way, I'm certainly NOT complaining !!


I decided to change up my exercise routine. Leslie Sansone has MANY Dvd's on different exercises. This morning, I did a two mile firm and tone one; this evening I exercised to a two mile routine one using weighted balls. I like to change it up so it's not just my legs that are getting the work out.


Today, I decided to eat tuna salad on wheat for lunch. I added lettuce and tomato for a little variety. This was about 20 carbs (bread). I also had a cup of the mixed veggies like I had yesterday. That was about 12 carbs.

This evening. I had a small plate of spaghetti with meatballs and sauce and a roll. The roll was 19 carbs. I have no idea how many carbs the spaghetti was. It was a small portion though !


How did your first weigh in go ?? I'd love to hear it ! Drop me a line or two !
