About Me

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!!

Got Independence ?

Happy July 4th !

Are you staying inside to avoid the heat today ? I certainly am.  Are you moving, sitting, wondering or exercising ?  What are you waiting for? What do you need Independence from ? Need motivation to get moving ?  Turn off your computer, put on your headset, get up and GO.

Do we realize what weighs us down ?  I used to be in this quandary. How many situation/things in our life control US ? If you really think about it : are we centering our lives around things that could REALLY wait an hour while we exercised ?

I would like you to try something NEW ! Instead of writing down what you EAT every day, write down each Activity  you engage in, and how many minutes/hours you are doing it.  It could be as simple as household activities, or watching the kids.  Do this for a few days.  Next take a look how you are spending your time. 

When I first started Low Carbing, I decided to exercise the last ten minutes of every hour. It could be as simple as a brisk walk, or a simple household activity.  This time added up.  My goal was to exercise an hour each every day !  

Leslie Sansone Walking Dvd's

Leslie Sansone  was one of the first exercise tapes I found that was very simple and easy to do.  You are able to walk a mile in 15 minutes from the convenience of your home !

Find what sets you free and give you the time to MOVE. 

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Fourth of July. Remember to stay Hydrated !!
