    Woke up, strong coffee & pint of warm water, 4 mile run then the same when I got home (trying to stave off hunger, works well most days)
    3x sausages with two fried eggs, doesnt affect my BS that much which is fab as I love the english breakfast elements.
    A few slices of cheese in the day, and one jalapeno/meat wrap with some cheese for tea. I think thats me done for today. BS just over 5.5 each time I check, which is good for me.

    Thanks Ian :)

    Your day sounds good, thats an early one - I'd be flagging if I was woken at 3.30. Fair play for getting up at 5.00, I imagine you'll be shattered now :)

    I ran at 7.30, the cool air does give me a boost, wouldnt be the same without the coffee tho. Calmomile tea, and a few coffees hydrate & keep my head clear enough until teatime around 18.00.
    The evenings are my weakest time, the little voice wants sweet things but thats usually nearer to bed & I have to ignore it although its hard sometimes!

    Some nice sounding food options in there, will relay to my wife. What cocoa do you use if you dont mind my asking please?
