- New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
- 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!!

Fun before the storm (It's Mardi Gras Time... down in New Orleans !!
It rained all day on our parade. Does that stop Mardi Gras..? Heavens Nooo ! God has a funny sense of humor if he thinks a little bit of rain will stop carnival's final weekend !
Mardi Gras runs until Tuesday, which is the 'official' day of Mardi Gras. We call it Fat Tuesday. Did u know that ? I don't think there is anything funny with the word Fat at all. So we fatten ourselves up this carnival day, only so we can go on a 40 day fast ? How does that seem fair when I'm already on a low carb fast ? LOL. How LOW can we go ? Could this be my Lenten challenge ? I'm sure there is message in this sermon here somehow to all us low-carbers out there.
I'll have to be on my BEST behavior if I want to survive this beast of a weekend into Fat Tuesday.
So today, I will tell you how the carb intake went :
Two beef patties (calories = 180, carbs = 0), Mc Donald's Chicken Salad (calories = 220, carbs = 11)
Total = 570 calories, 11 carbs.
For exercise today, I participated in a one hour Body Pump Class at Anytime Fitness.
I WILL SURVIVE !!
