    6.7 - just because I was silly over Easter - the chocolate is almost gone and so are the hot cross buns - thank goodness cos if they are around I cannot resist the temptation - gee I am weak and stupid as well - all that sugar made me feel crook but not enough brains to stop

    Well this week I will do the right thing for myself and get my carbs under control - only one hurdle our 57th wedding anniversary on Saturday so I plan take away Chinese so we can celebrate at home with our companion Puff the pug

    Have a wonderful day

    Kindest regards

    Peter

    Thanks @DJC3 was the same on Sunday and a 5.1 in between. Trying to unpick reasons/trends because repeat performances are the goal.

    Please post if you find the answer.

    @DJC3 In many ways I really believe the answer is to forget about the numbers or what "should" work and go through what does work almost instinctively. My recent higher numbers have frustrated me because "in theory" things I was doing should have produced even lower numbers!
