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!!

WORK it out !!

Today, I went to the gym and worked out :

20 minutes on the treadmill
10 minutes on the elliptical
10 minutes on the bicycle

I took a one hour studio class called "Body Pump' at the new gym I just joined. I had NO idea what I was getting myself into.

Bodypump is a barbell class, designed to improve strength and endurance in the major muscle groups. The conditioning techniques integrated into the class have been kept current by by combining music and instructors that inspire participants to give their best efforts. They provide health and fitness benefits, including: -improving full-body strength and general fitness, -shaping and toning major muscle groups and -a high-energy, group-oriented workout experienceng music and instructors that inspire participants to give their best efforts.

I was not that inspired by the class, but slowly warmed up to it. I also learned how to do a push up from a seated position. (hard to explain lol).

Yep, I sure hope all this hard exercise pays off.

I ate broiled chicken, some small potatoes, and meatballs for supper. I had bacon lettuce and tomato on wheat for lunch.

Life IS GOOD. :)
