    4.8 this morning. I am hoping that starting to exercise again will help me move to usually high fours rather than low fives. Time will tell.

    6.9 at 7.30 - I was delighted as it was late for a glucose rush. However, I tested over the next thirty minutes and watched it rise and level out at 7.9. This is so frustrating. On the one hand I think my body is so efficient - giving me an energy boost to start the day but on the other I want it low.

    I'm sooo jealous of you 4. somethings and 5. somethings. It's not until 1 or 2 o'clock in the afternoon that I drop to this level.
