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!!

4/6 Low Carb Diet and Exercise

I just got back from the gym. I'm pretty fatigued as this is my second day in a row doing Bodypump (weightlifting).  Combine this with the RPM (spinning class) I took yesterday = one tired gal !!

I had a great Bodypump workout. Although I did not have my regular instructor, Darrell -- Hailey did a nice job with the routines. However on the very last track I learned a new move -- How to "Hover with a Pointer !!"  Indeed, I needed every ounce of strength left,  for that move literally rocked me to the core ! 
Hailey sure saved the best for LAST> :)


I've always loved farm-fresh brown eggs.  My current supply.

For breakast, I ate three scrambled eggs with ham and cheese.

A piece of bread on the side to balance it off ! (8 carbs)

Some fresh blueberries and blackberries round off the meal :)  (about 12 carbs)


Snack time !  1/3 cup of nuts.


After workout.. I was looking in the frig for leftovers.  I found some potato salad... added mayo.  No idea how many carbs lol.

Yes, I cheat.  I had a small slice of carrot cake that I got from our local farmer's market. Yes, it was delish !!
