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!!

Low Carb, LENT, and 8 pounds LESS :)

Ok, its that time of year again... They fatten us up on Mardi Gras, only to let us suffer for the next 40 days until Easter rolls around and the smell of chocolate bunnies permeates the room...

I always figured that since I was adhering to a low carb diet already, thus giving up foods that meant something to me.. (You know like the chocolate,  soft drinks, etc.)

I will have to deliberate on this notion. In the meantime.. here is my carb/ caloric intake for the day.

Breakfast = 1/2 banana (50 calories, 8 carbs), blackberries (5 carbs, 18 calories), blueberries (2 carbs, 20 calories)

For a late lunch, I at a Wendy's Spicy Chicken Salad (25 carbs, 430 calories) with two packs of Ranch Dressing (4 carbs)

538 calories and 44 carbs.

Good News is I lost a total of 8 pounds in five weeks :))

I had a Body Pump (60-minute weightlifting class )at Anytime Fitness tonight :)
