I finished my quilt top for baby Jack tonight. Will try to post a pic.
I am usually up late too but I still stop at 8 pm. I have another friend whom's doctor switched her meds from morning and evening too and she also lost weight because she can't eat after 8. I think as long as you stop eating about 4 hours before bed time.

Darling quilt! I love the colors - I have aqua and red fabric for a quilt for my playroom when I get to it.

Where is everyone? Off having fun while I'm stuck in the house unless I want to get wet walking the dogs. I see a yoga video in my very near future - like 10 minutes from now. Thank goodness it's raining. My flowers and grass need it so badly.

I made a mistake at dinner tonight. There is no dairy on the Whole30 diet and I had cheese on my burger at a local brewery. I need to gather up all the opened cheese packages and all the yogurt from the fridge and take it to my daughter's house. It won't be any good in 22 more days.

Funhall2, shingles are such a nasty disease. I detached a retina during my last bout. Just curious - did your husband have the vaccine?

Off to fold clothes and do some more stitching on the tree in my quilt. Have a good evening.

Judy, what are all the no-no's in the whole30? I'm thinking dairy, sugar, sugar substitute, grains, processed food. Anything else?

Pam...Cute baby quilt...I love that the triangles are moveable!!!! That is something I haven't done ...yet! The cooler weather has arrived and it feels wonderful! I've been drinking tons more water and my pants (jeans) are feeling more comfortable. I can't wait to see the scale at the end of this month!

Pam there is a Whole 30 website that explains the rules. My friend has been on it for several months. SHe says she feels better than she has in years and no longer takes her arthritis meds. Her blood pressure is down and her DH and her have both lost weight. She says once you get used to it , it isn't hard to follow. she has learned to order in restaurants too. Some of the books are available at the library although you can follow it without the book. I started it but didn't complete it. I need to get back to it.
I have been exercising more this month. I really enjoy bike riding and am not sure how I will get it in once school starts on Monday. I have been averaging about 60 miles a week since mid July. I have also been doing some walking but find it not as fun. My DH says I should ride my bike to school, it is a lot of uphill riding and there isn't a shower at school. That would be gross. There must be a muscle group in my legs I'm not working as hills and stairs are still a little bit off for me. I am trying to do more of both. I am so not ready for school to start and i have been off since April 27th. I seems like it was such a short summer.
My DD called on Saturday. Her boyfriend is living with us right now as he starts a new job tomorrow here in town. He is looking for an apartment. She is living in Tallahassee Fl and doesn't really like the area. SHe will be moving back here to get a job at the end of September. I will be glad to have all of my kids back in the area for the first time in years.

Smile Legumes anyone?

We just finnished a large pan of an all fagioli/minestrone mix soup. I ran into a large bag of dried lentils in the pantry and bought some chicken. so when I searched under low calorie lentil/ chicken soup recipe the above recipe came up. I think I will make it tomorrow or the day after.

The soup sounds good, Anna. I pinned so I can try it this winter.

Anna you will have to let us know if the soup is good. I have a bag of lentils in the pantry. Not sure what I bought them for. I pinned it to use later.

I will meanmom. I am always looking for soup recipes or the like that my family will like and will work for me on my diet. So if any of you have recipes please share. It seems many of the recipes are a bit high in calories unless I tweak it but this one seems promising as it is. I have a larger family so soup and bread is a good option. I normally do not eat bread with it, now I am on a diet, but lentils or beans do give me satiety and are way healthier then noodles.

One of the reasons for me to loose weight is to try and see if it will improve my blood sugar. Now I am also starting to look more into the glycemic index of different foods. Loosing weight so far has not really helped my blood sugar. Atleast I would have expected greater results. Does anyone else look at the glycemic index of foods?

As expected some things I like have a higher glycemic index. Of course one of my new favorites, bagged air popped pop corn, have a high glycemic index.

Pam, here is the basic - there are a lot of free websites if you Google 'Whole30'.
http://whole30.com/whole30-program-rules/
I'm not finding it too far from what I was eating because of my allergies to gluten, corn, yeast, MSG, sulfites. Obviously, I was already eating quite clean. Had to give up chocolates and hot chocolate at night. And cheese and yogurt - I didn't realize how much cheese I was eating. I did want GF crackers for the first few days. Almonds are a good substitute. Weight loss in not why I'm on it.

Anna, I am familiar with the GI, but don't follow it too closely as the lists vary so much. Look up a plain white potato on several different sites. Basmati rice is lower than white rice. Brown might be a little lower but I don't like brown rice. Have you given up all artificial sweeteners? Nutrasweet and Splenda both play with your blood sugar. Are you having protein with every meal?
I wish lentils were prettier. I made soup for a friend and hated to deliver it to him. It was good, but not appetizing looking. The Whole30 doesn't allow legumes. A pot of bean soup may be the first thing I make in three weeks.

I need several clones. One for the garden, one to clean the house, one to shop and walk the dogs. That's the only way I'm going to get any quilting done. I will keep the cooking - I like that. Just cooking and quilting - then I would feel like I really am retired.
