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!!

My Low Carb BIG Easy Green Salad (PICTURES))

I hit the local farmer's market yesterday. It has been beautiful weather here in the Big Easy lately -- so there were LOTS of vendors with there farm raised crops there.

One person had a HUGE head of lettuce. And I'm talking HUGE. Today I prepared a nice big GREEN SALAD with the leaves from it.

I chopped up some tomato, turkey and ham.  Topped it wih shredded cheese !

THE FINAL RESULT !! MY LOW CARB BIG EASY GREEN SALAD !!  (Ham 3 carbs, Turkey 2 carbs). I topped it with a sprinkle of bacon bits :)

I added a couple of teaspoons of Ranch Dressing (6 carbs).

For desert I had some fresh blueberries and blackberries !! (7 carbs)

For my snack today I had 1/2 banana (8 carbs)


I took a Body Pump Weightlifting class tonite. It was awesome ! Can't wait until the new launch Party Next Month.

It's been 7 weeks since I started Anytime Fitness AND I'm just now noticing my body is starting to tone from the weight lifting.  It's awesome. Diamonds REALLY ARE a girl's best friend !!
