    Still have a lingering bug. Bed 6.4 FBG 7.1 then got waves in the 8's and low 9's before it came back down.
    B. Nothing
    L. Nothing - living on water and paracetamol
    D. More using up - slice ox tongue, mortadella and smokehouse cured ham. 4 tre colori pomodori and an omelette with parsley. Odd combination but I'm trying to use up things I can't freeze.

    Well, BG and eating have been all over the place today. Started out at 5.1, which is within my usual FBG range. Morning rise was only 0.4 mmols to 5.5. Usually I then head downwards all day. Not today, up to 6.5 by 10 am and still at 5.8 pre-lunch, despite not eating. Headed down from there, but only slowly. Finally hit 4.7 post dinner. Really odd!

    Offsite departmental away-day followed by event at a funder’s office, then to a pub to continue team away-day, so eating all out of kilter.

    Breakfast - none

    Lunch - Had a large one as knew dinner would be late and bitty. Pret A Manger Tuna Niçoise salad, with some of the French dressing, Pret Egg and Avocado protein pot, Awfully Posh pork crackling.

    Dinner - a few slices of salami/cold meat in the pub, 50g almonds. Was still hungry when got home and as BG finally down, had some more Awfully Posh and 2 squares Lindt 90%.

    Knew you'd manage to get your way through a massive portion like that @Brunneria, even if it was a battle - you got there:)

    Found out about the wonder of Whey protein ! I looked for some with stevia sweetener and fewer additives and came up with a raspberry one from MyProtein. So have joined the smoothie world after five years of avoidance!

    B - protein smoothie with almond milk

    L - small salad with cheese and nuts

    D - Indian meal out - hence saving up my carbs for

    Chicken Chat
    2 poppadoms
    Tandoori chicken with veg
    Coffee

    Will just make it to 35/40g carbs for the day. Phew !

    The first few fasts are the hardest but you do get used to it quite quickly. I don't think I could fast when taking lots of exercise like your 45 min swim, though. :)
