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!!

Confessions of the King Cake...

It's officially Mardi Gras time here in New Orleans...  Our son was the King of the local school Mardi Gras Parade.

Decadent foods like  Shrimp po-boys, jambalaya, creole gumbo are a relevant staple here in New Orleans. Around Mardi Gras time the KING CAKE sneaks into our local cuisine !!

I've been looking feverishly all day at my birthday King Cake - what remains of it. Wanting to just take a *tiny* lick of that sparkly purple, green and gold icing. The King Cake is telling me how wonderful the white dripping icing looks... Definitely yummy... Bad king cake !!

I could BARELY contain myself ! 

Now back to reality... lol. 

My lunch consisted of :

Two slices, white wheat bread, (16 carbs, 260 calories),  (Banana -- I ended up eating the whole thing !  17 carbs, 108 calories) ( 3 slices of ham, 3 carbs, 90 calories) (3 slices of turkey breast , 3 carbs 90 calories)  Cheese (about 1 carb)  for a grand total of 458 calories.


For supper, I had a Taco bell  hard shell taco.  (13 carbs, 160 calories)

Grand total for the day, about 50 carbs and  (618 calories)

Pass a good time, and catch a few parades. :) I walked about 20 minutes at a good pace in the parade today !!

How is YOUR weekend going ??
