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!!

Cinco de Mayoooo !! And it only gets better..

Happy Cinco de Mayo ! I was planning on making tacos to celebrate the occasion, but never got around to it. For lunch :

Wheat bread = 16 carbs. Two cups of steamed veggies = 8 carbs.


Darrell told me that 'it only gets BETTER.' WOW , what a loaded statement ! I tend to believe that is true. So what if you are having a so so day, right ? What comes NEXT ??

I had one of those today. Between teaching, a sick, 12 year old, a husband who was just told he's working turnaround until the end of the month... it only gets better, RIGHT ??

After making groceries tonite.. I think my body just gave out. I was up half of the night with my son (he has a fever). Brought him to the doctor today. Of course Louisiana is probably the only state where you can wake up one day with 80 degree temps and the next with 50 degree temps. That is what happened this week. I think everyone is suffering in one way or another... So I'll just let my body 'recover' .. and we'll see how that goes.

I dont have much of an appetite tonight, so I ate an entire banana...

Off to do housework and tend to the ailments of the teen. Hope your evening is an enjoyable one. Did you have anything special to eat for Cinco de Mayo ?
