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!!

Rest The Flesh

Rest the Flesh

Today, I’m resting the flesh.  I finished my second 5 K yesterday.  Its quite funny, cause I am NOT the runner.  I’m just a 53 year-old who is into physical fitness.

I’ve started to include running into my regime though. I may run one mile every other day, but that is about it.  It is just another activity to confuse my muscles.

If you ask anyone who knows me, they will tell you that I can be spotted just about
any where in the Picayune area riding my bicycle. Now there’s my true love. Last month I started to make a goal   ~ challenging myself to 100 miles per month.   Even though I left early to go on vacation, I somehow managed to put in a smooth 132 miles in my ride.

My second love is Yoga.  Third is strength training.

 I’ve been told by WAY to many people… ‘How do you find the time?”.  If you put aside one hour or more for yourself, to exercise  then you would be able to find it. Aren’t YOU worth it? Instead of saying “I don’t have the time’, Try saying “It’s not a priority”, and see how it feels.

Moving is so important. It lubricates our joints. It strengthens our muscles. Its just plain HEALTHY.

I do not know where this journey is going to take me, but I know one thing : I’ll keep MOVING.
