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!!

It's all in the Technique...

Hi ! I hope everyone had a fun filled day today. I'm still trying to sort out this three week mix up in my schedule ! Since I am at the ball park now on Tuesday and Thursday nights, I decided to walk around the walking paths until the game starts. I probably walked about two miles tonite.

After my Bodypump and Bodyflow classes last nite, I found myself thinking about my technique. Since I am unable to go with my regular instructor, I am finding myself correcting my mistakes in another Body Pump class. It is like his voice is inside of my head... saying 'It's all about the TECHNIQUE.' Yeah you right. It should not matter who teaches your class. You are there for the sole purpose of strength training, which is what my instructor, Darrell, was politely trying to point out to me. Technique is very important.. more important than adding weight. Get the technique down, THEN add the weight. Ha. I hear his voice even when I am not in his class. I must be doing something RIGHT. LOL.

I find that in everyday life, we use technique. Whether it's to throw together an awesome salad, and add a little bit of extra salad dressing to make the finished product perfect... or just focusing on climbing uphill on the levee on my new bike (even though i'm not in RPM (spinning class). I use techniques effortlessly now. It's beginning to sink in.


I am very proud of my food I prepared today !!

Deviled eggs, Ham sandwich, 1/3 cup of almonds with cranberries, honey and sea salt (12 carbs) wheat bread (16 carbs)

Strawberries (3 carbs), Blackberries (5 carbs)


Taco salad : lettuce, tomato, cheese, ground beef (taco = 19 carbs)


I'm looking forward to a Pump Class tomorrow nite. Hope everyone sleeps well :)
