    Results in at last! Very happy - it has gone up from 30 to 31 but as my sugr said 30.6 and with the round up or down the difference is probably minimal. I’ve been off Metformin for a year now and also upped my food and carbs a bit in recent months. In May when got my 30 I was still regularly fasting to lose weight and well below 20g per day now eat 3 meals and stick to below 30g with more veg. Celebrating with glass of red - don’t usually partake on a Tuesday!
    Breakfast one slice of bacon and egg
    Lunch chicken and almonds - picnic in Birmingham had with coffee and cream in m and s!
    Dinner two lamb chops, buttered mushrooms and raita with glass of red planning bit of choc with coffee in a bit
    Hope everyone is having a good day.

    Firstly, congratulations @shelley262 great results and fair reward for all your hard work.
    I will exceed all my targets today so all good. Julie was ill and in bed most of the day so my targets were:
    ensure there are 2 humans, 2 dogs and 9 chickens fed, watered and safely locked up by dark. I over achieved by making the almond milk, cutting up the gurnard and freezing it ready for stock, 20 mins exercise bike and watching cricket. 7.4k steps so far - mostly taking drinks and food to the patient
    Breakfast: Tea
    Early Dockey : Tassimo americano with cream (Kenco)
    Lunch : Large salad with tin of mackerel in olive oil; chia seeds; Tea
    Mid Afternoon: Tea
    Evening meal: Lamb breast; roast sprouts and portobello mushrooms - I can use an oven:angelic:
    @Rachox glad you found the CCG recipe.
    Edit: Best of all I have had sole charge of the dishwasher:):):)

    Brilliant @shelley262 that’s a fantastic result. Your diet is exemplary so it’s no surprise you have such good results. Enjoy your wine this evening - very well deserved.

    Your evening meal sounds lovely, I hope it doesn’t sound patronising if I say well done.
    I hope Mrs P is up and about again soon ( don’t feel I can use her Christian name as we haven’t been introduced)

    Evening all
    @maglil55 glad you had a good break and a bit of distraction from the horrible day ahead of you. I hope it goes well, and wish you strength.

    @Pipp your break sounds lovely too. I’m off to Aqua fit tomorrow as well, it’s great fun but I am a bit rubbish at it.

    Still following the DD menu plan as far as poss and bgs are better than they’ve been for a few months. I can’t help but worry about the amount of fat I’m eating though and I definitely need to start making mayo again as most of the recipes Ive tried contain bucket loads.

    B: 2 scrambled eggs. Coffee and cream.

    L: DD roll filled with turkey breast, avocado and mayo ( left over from yesterday tea) plus a slice of emmental. More coffee and cream.

    D: Chicken skewers with celeriac chips and spinach dipping sauce.

    Her real name is Petunia:angelic: The first meal I ever cooked her was lamb leg, studded with garlic and rosemary and brushed with honey. My hedgehog potatoes were legendary. I can cook but need to keep it simple to suit us both. I don't do dessert:banghead:

    Thanks. The hardest part was not making myself one of the sourdough bacon sandwiches with tomato sauce that I made Julie as a pick me up - very tempted. Last task is to make the toddy - that was always my job. Can't make myself any now - honey and ribena aren't diabetic friendly - rum is ok though. Could tell you the spices but then I'd have to kill y'all:angelic: (Mace, cinnamon and cloves are involved)
    Does anyone have a good diabetic friendly toddy recipe?

    Do you have any other essences in? I often use lemon or orange instead.

    Hi all. A bit late posting tonight as hit the swimming pool to de-stress after work. Only Tuesday but feels like a full week already. @ianpspurs the office could do with some instruction from Mrs P/Julie on dishwasher stacking (and shared kitchen etiquette in general.

    @shelley262 brilliant result! Well deserved - hope you’ve enjoyed your red wine.

    @fran57 chia pudding will be just fine without the extract

    Today’s menu was smoked salmon and cream cheese for lunch and a minced beef, bacon and cheesy concoction with a few onion granules thrown in. Very tasty and BG went down between eating and swimming.

    Finally, @maglil55 will be thinking of you tomorrow.

    I think there's a programme to be made on the Great British (dishwasher) Stackoff
