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!!

Technology Sucks... and I lost another pound !!

or lack of it, literally ! I'm lost without my camera. I'm plain and simple. I do not need anything beyond my Memorex Digital Video Camera

I like pictures. One can visualize more. It's hard to write a column without pictures lol. B-o-r-i-n-g! Hopefully, it will arrive in the mail this week.


Onto the good news. I lost another pound. That's a total of 14 in 9 weeks. I'm happy with that.

The Body pump and bicycling is helping tone where I need it. Certain exercises can point to muscle gain in certain areas, so choose wisely ! I'm also learning that protein with exercise helps to gain muscle.

Last night (Imagine since I have no photo here...) I had a plate of : Blackberries (4 carbs) , two tablespoons of peanut butter (8 carbs ) on toast(8 carbs and a slice of cheese (1 carb) . This was for a late evening snack. Go Girl..

This is coming from a gal that was so afraid to UP the calories because she would gain weight. Exercising off the calories will maintain the weight.

Yesterday I rode my bicycle up on the levee (yes, one direction against the wind), for about an hour and a half. S-l-ow , steady riding. (This was in addition to a Body Pump class in the a.m. It Was a beautiful day !!


I finished up the lima beans I had during the week, and froze the rest.

1/4 cup of rice 11 carbs

1/2 cup lima beans 20 carbs

slice o bread 8 carbs

4 strawberries. 4 carbs

Total 43 carbs

21 carbs (late snack

Grand total 64 carbs. Yes, high, but I'm intermittently adding protein.. AND exercising.
