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!!

Measure once, cut twice !!

Good morning ! I hope everyone is having a wonderful productive weekend.

For breakfast, I cooked two eggs - sunny side up, (130 calories, 1 carb),  Bacon (1 carb, 215 calories)

2 slices wheat bread (16 carbs, 260 calories).


For dinner, I made a chicken -egg salad-salad LOL. I added some lettuce, tomato, and two tablespoons of Ranch dressing.  I think I'm getting better at making my own salads !! LOL


Do you EVER Have one of those days were you seem to be doing everything twice, but dont know why ?

Goodness. I'm still dealing with painting and the bathroom issues. Today's issue was putting in a plastic adhesive of bathtub molding.  WELLLL... I put it on incorrectly, and when I took it off, the paint from the newly painted walls came off also.. So, I ditched the bathtub molding idea, and just sanded and painted the area.

I dont know if the paint is dry yet, so I'll save that picture for another day !

Dieting is like this. We measure our carbs to make SURE we have the exact amount required.  However, we HAVE to HAVE a CHEAT DAY every now and then... Do I hear anybody out there shouting an "AMEN ?" lol.
