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!!

Motivation to Get Moving - Exercise TV On Demand (Cox Communications)

Ever wonder how to go from couch potato to 'HOT POTATO ?'

I had a "DOH" moment when it come to myur health yesterday?  Have  you ever had one ? When was it? What did you do about it?

Well, if you're looking for motivation to actually do something about the light bulb going off, check out http://www.exercisetv.tv/ EXERCISE TV a part of a FREE 'On Demand" selection offered by Cox Communications. (Check your local cable service provider, they may carry it too !

I was SO bored yesterday (thus my hungry self).  I decided to watch some free 'On Demand" Programming.  I was very disappointed when Cox Communications dropped their  Fit TV Exercise channel (It is now Discovery Health/Fit) . Now it is ONLY a  Fitness channel for three hours each morning.

I've been in the depths of despair since January, over this, but yesterday - I found it @!  Fit TV on demand. Ode to JOY !!  They have fitness trainers at your disposal , to tone every inch of our bodies.  I also Found Jillian Michael's and Leslie Sansone :)

More than anything, check to see if your local cable channel provides this FREE "On Demand" Service .

Top tip for ExerciseTV viewers: Be sure you"SHOP" for your FAVORITES on Exercise TV!!! There are sooo many different types of work outs to consider, different levels, different trainers, different styles, different intensities and also lengths of work outs. The best thing you can do is try out several to find the ones you enjoy the most and do the most for you.

It helps to incorporate different styles of exercise into your exercise routines to keep your muscles challenged and to keep your metabolism up. ALSO, if you FIND a favorite, as I did on ExerciseTV, you can more than likely buy downloads on www.ExerciseTV.tv (both free and at nominal cost) as well as DVD's offering more workouts to accompany your ExerciseTV workouts

I just found a some free videos on Exercise tv videos on hulu !


Get up and get MOVING  !!

I could not keep up, even if I tried.

Hey this is excellent. This will be very helpful during my exercise routines at home. Thanks for sharing. What's your favorite exercise so far? What do you recommend? :)

bayoubabe said...

My favorite indor exercise is practicing yoga. A LOT of the moves are centered around balance and core strength.

I also enjoy walking with Leslie Sansone's walk at home series (Google if you are not familiar, or search my blog here.)

I recommend doing what is best for YOU. If you need to TONE, I suggest the yoga. If you need to loose weight, I suggest Leslie Sansone.

Thanks for the great question !!
