  • High in the early morning and a bit up and down in the last few hours of the day, but not too bad? [ATTACH]

  • Stress is great for keeping blood sugars stable. [ATTACH]
  • Started to see further weight loss, although in a piecemeal fashion. Very satisfied.

  • Plenty of room for improvement yesterday. I had a chat with my wife because I've realised I'm comfort eating during the Coronavirus outbreak. Hopefully that'll get me back on track. I went cycling this morning, keeping isolated from the few other people I saw on the way. The ride was around 13...

I'm pleased to report that we made it there and back, avoiding contact with people along the way. We had to walk (neither of us drive), and it took us a bit over an hour to get there – it's about a...
