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!!

Cajun Chicken Salad !! & Super Moon

They say things go crazy when there is a full moon.  Mama's deliver their beautiful babies. Accidents are more prevalent on this day and so on. Today's moon is non-the-less spectacular.  It's the closest it has been to us in 18 years, sorta coming by for a visit tonite. If u get the chance to step out your door this evening, it will be well worth it. I tried to take a picture, and here is the best that I got.

With that in mind, my taste palette was a buzzin today ! I drove to the Popeye's drive thru, to get a Spicy Chicken Breast (11 carbs, 380 calories).  It came in a strange 'leftover box', I suppose from the Lenten Friday yesterday. 

So, I took my chicken breast, deboned it, cut it up into tiny pieces to go into my Cajun Chicken Salad.

I chopped up some lettuce tomato, added Kraft Mexican Shredded cheese (1 carb, 100 calories)

I tossed everything into a bowl, and added two tablespoons of ranch dressing.

What a beautiful Cajun Spicy Chicken  Salad !!

For supper tonite, I had a piece of hamburger, on two slices of wheat bread (260 calories, 16 carbs)

Exercise : This morning I had a very nice BodyPump weightlifting workout.  I pushed it to the limit. This evening, I rode bikes along the Mississippi River Levee., pedalling 5.2 miles.  wheee !

Hope your weekend is very successful. If you get a chance get out tonight to peek at the MOON :)
