    Work is more structured than home. During holidays we're all over the place. At work food times are specific, guess I need the structure at the moment.

    I work from home one day a week and find that I eat about the same but instead of having a salad for lunch I often have a cheese and mushroom omelette.

    Well I didn't test this morning, clear went out of my head. Freudian slip? Or some other 'ologist's theory...mmm maybe. Still got that Llindt chocolate in the fride....

    As an aside I went trampolining today for an hour. Only 3 of us with a trampoline each. I laughed so much, my teeth went dry and my face numb.
    Please try it. It is such a stress reliever, so much fun.

    5.2 this am. Leaving London this morning and catching train to Birmingham to see family before going home. My fitbit indicates that we have walked 65.68 miles this week just sight seeing. Little wonder that I was continuously grazing on all the tasty titbits on offer.
    Interesting time when ordering food as lots of understanding were I lactoces or gluton intollerant or had some sort of fancy food fad. Blank looks when mentioing no carbs although several pubs had the handle on it by offering to swap say chips for salad but had to emphasise not to then drench in dressing ( foud it bests to ask for olive oil as as condiment).
    Watching my wife eat fancy cakes from Melba at The Savoy was an interesting interlude but discovering that half a pint of propper beer with a carefully chosen meal and having that not interfere too much with my fasting reading was a real bonus.

    Really naughty, had a Green & Blacks hot choc with full fat milk last night at 11pm two hour after drinking 7.8. I went to bend thinking, no low reading tomorrow morning. Yay, 5.6 this morning :)

    I'm getting my nose stuck in Gut by Giulia Enders and Fermented Vegetables by the Shockey's.

    Happy Sunday everyone.:happy:
