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!!

Another one bites the dust...

Another one bites the dust.. OR the importance of measuring.. when dieting.

I *never* realized how important it was to measure yourself when dieting !  I thought by loosing my seven pounds in five weeks was a good thang.  I met with a personal trainer today to get the ropes on how to use the machines at the gym. (It is a free service that Anytime Fitness provides).  Turns out where I was measuring MY waist, and where I should *actually* measure my waist was in two different places ! Oh my, how dumbfounded I was to learn my actually TRUE waist measurement. =(  I am definitely way too embarrassed to report it.


For exercise today, I exercised with Exercise TV channel, doing 40 minutes of yoga, and 20 minutes of "Family Walk', with Leslie Sansone.   I also went to the gym, and climbed aboard the 'cross training' machine, did 20 minutes of that. It is similar to the elliptical, but has a place to hold on with your hands and your arms  swing back and forth as well as your feet.


  I made a nice salad for lunch.

One slice of Ham ( 0 carbs, 60 calories), three slices of turkey breast (90 calories  , 3 carbs)  Chicken salad on top (boiled egg, little big of chicken breast)  ??

For dinner :

bacon (Calories - 215, 0 carbs , egg (calories 65, carbs 0 ) , two slices wheat bread (carbs 16, calories, 260 ) , handful of blackberries (carbs, 5 , calories 18)

TOTAL Carbs = 25,  817 calories..

Hey, at least I was on track today ! How did yall do ??
