- New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
- 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!!

Out of touch, Back to REALITY ! (VIDEO !!)
I bbq'd for Easter .. so I had to try out some of the chicken breast. The photo above shows a nice bbq chicken salad. 8 carbs for the Ranch dressing.
There is nothing like going out of town for a few days. The respit is welcome. The low carb eats are GOOD. Easter is one of my favorite holidays of the year. It's a time to reflect, and eating low carb is easy. I chose my favorites : Ham, deviled eggs, Roast.
Coming BACK to a reality check is where it hurts. Before today.. it had been five days since I last worked out at the gym. My entire body hurts tonite. I never realized how hard it was to get back into the rhythm my body was used too. I missed the rigor of working out with my instructor, Darrell. Bringing my muscles to an entire fatigue is my goal. My schedule is going to be quite hectic for the next three weeks, and my workout schedule will be on different nights. ( The thought of this makes me shiver. Of course, I'll make the most out of a different instructors.. but its not the same as having someone you are comfortable with... who will work you out till you drop dead (literally).. and know that showing up at the gym was well worth your time AND effort.)
While out of town, working out is hard to do. I did take a nice bike ride at the Bogue Chitto State Park in Franklinton, LA. Tonight I took a Bodypump class AND a Bodyflow class at Anytime Fitness.
Tomorrow, I plan to ride my new bike on the levees over on the East Bank, in Destrehan, LA.. Have a wonderful Day !!
