- 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!!

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood !
So it IS a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Have u gotten outside to take a LOOK lately ? A slow walk, breathing in the new spring air, or a quick paced walk -- breathing steadily should be on your agenda for this week ! I got out this morning and walked a brisk 25 minutes. Spring is in the AIR :)
I've been busy painting our bathroom. That's burning calories -- right ? Up and down the ladder. Brushing up and down with either hand. (Like in Karate Kid ??) So I'm developing muscles in the arms, AND exercising by going up and down the ladder .. OK I'm game for that. It's better than being the 'couch potato' !!
For lunch today, I had ham on two slices of wheat bread . (Ham = 150 calories, 1 carb) (Bread = 260 calories, 16 carbs.
For supper tonight, I had a Butterball turkey breast. (120 calories, 1 carb).
I concluded the night with a one hour Body Pump weightlifting class at Anytime Fitness !!
