    Catching up from my election 'hangover' stupor with a long stretch of rotten sleeps - now been waking at 4am even though I don't want to!

    Sunday FBG 7.2
    Monday FBG 7.1

    I can't even remember what I've been eating except too much sugar-free chocolate and LC Atkin's bars plus picking at salads and proscuitto, boiled eggs, cottage cheese and too much coffeeeeeee! Blood sugars have reflected off-piste behaviour - and I think I'm suspicious of the impact of those LC/SF bars - despite neither calories nor net carbs being too outrageous - but it could have just been lack of sleep.

    Today FBG back down to 5.8 - phew!

    Everything calming down again and past 24hrs -
    Lunch: I did penance with a protein meal shake for lunch and green leafy salad, 3 x keto-friendly coffees
    Dinner: more leafy salad, plus small amount of havarti cheese and DD eggplant hash (which for my taste needed more spicing up than their recipe).
    Cal <800 Net carbs 20g

    FBG 6.3 after a bad sleep and an 'off-piste' eating day yesterday scrounging cupboard/fridge in the context of 'what's left? I need to shop'

    Started sensibly at lunch then things went downhill yesterday:
    Lunch: 2 soft-ish boiled eggs with steamed broccolini, a little smoked salmon and 2 x keto friendly coffees;
    Hungry day (fallout from 2 x twelve hour work days preceding?) that led to
    VERY EARLY Dinner: protein meal shake + psyllium and a couple of radishes and a tin of smoked oysters found in the pantry, 3 pieces of SF dark choc, stevia hot chocolate

    Inexplicably still very hungry and went a bit nuts - literally - with a supper: a handful of cashews that I found lurking in the pantry, olives, some cheese, six ridiculously sugary marinated mussels (six left and they've now gone in the bin!).

    Macros? I don't even want to finish calculating them! Thankfully, today is a new day!!
