    5.8 FBG this morning. High for me, but then yesterday was a bit of a carb blow out celebration :D ... Pizza Hut pan pizza, 1/2 bottle of champagne and low carb lager for dinner (7.8 after 2 hours).

    Dropped as today has gone on, 5.4 2h after breakfast (bullet proof coffee), 5.1 2h after lunch (antipasto platter, boiled eggs, pickled chillies, pecan nuts). I predict 4.6 as my pre-dinner recording.
