    Bed 7.5 FBG 6.4 - stress- pure and simple. Great result @shelley262. @DJC3 thank you for the kind words. Tomorrow will be truly awful. We're having to leave around 7.40 to get the boys to breakfast club which is going to make for a very early rise and I'm anxious because even going that early any problems on route and there's no detour options. If we can get over the bridge we'll be fine.
    B. Tassimo Americano grande with a dash of cream
    Back on the school run with 2 moaning children
    L. 6 of these mini M&S sausages cold.
    D. Bunless burger with a cheese slice, 2 mushrooms , 4 Santini tomatoes, bit lettuce, spoon of coleslaw.

    Got a big pot of spinach and broccoli soup made in the Instant Pot as I thought it would be digestible tomorrow. Just needs a blitz.

    Hope today isn’t too difficult practically in addition to all the emotion that you’ll be dealing with. Take care of yourself lots of hugs from me x

    Go safely today, @maglil55 . Hopefully you will be able to take just a little time to think of the happy times you and your sister shared over the years.

    Thinking of you all.

    More ambitious today - added hovering and using the new washing machine plus, as the lady formerly known as Mrs P was up and about, cut the rest of the lawns. Hope y'all dealt with whatever fortunate or harrowing days you had. @maglil55 hope you can find some peace this evening.

    Breakfast: Tea
    Dockey : Tea
    Lunch : Large salad with tin of mackerel in olive oil; chia seeds; Tea
    Mid Afternoon: Tassimo Americano Grande with cream
    Evening meal: Thai green (chicken) curry with mushrooms and spinach wilted in. That was easy, tasty and a real keeper if bloods come back sensible. I think I've found my comfort food.

    Hi everyone, I am back in the uk now, will be back home on Friday so until then I’m still a little bit at the mercy of others and not fully in control of what’s available, therefore will rejoin posts on Monday when I will have both hands firmly on the reins and my behind in the saddle so to speak.
    Hope everyone is well, I have missed the motivation and support. X

    Evening everyone
    B: DD breakfast sandwich ( 2 fried eggs ‘over easy’ stacked with a thin slice of smoked ham and of Emmental in between)

    L: DD mushroom frittata with rocket salad

    D: DD Stuffed low carb cabbage casserole - nicer than it sounds.

    I have been using the Carbs&Cals app to track my food and work out the carbs, but since following the DD meal plans I havent needed to. However today, just for interest I put all the ingerdients for the meals into Carbs&Cals and the carb total was markedly lower than DD The frittata for instance was 6g carb per portion according to DD but only 1 according to Carbs&cals. I do wonder if this might have been a factor in some of my higher than expected bg readings recently - if I was underestimating carb values. How do other people track?

    Evening all. Very late posting after a saga at the gym. Went to unwind after very stressful day at work (if there were such a thing as a cortisol meter, I’m sure it would be reading hi). Worked a treat until I got back into the changing room to find that my padlock was refusing to open when I entered the code. Several attempts to no avail. Eventually found a staff member who was on the point of getting the bolt cutters when I realised that I’d been using the wrong code!

    Today’s menu was lunch of smoked salmon and cream cheese bolted down between calls to avert a crisis and dinner of Waitrose beef steak hache and one of the halloumi burgers. Not sure about the halloumi - although I did arrive at work to find the pack of burgers I’d taken out of the office fridge to bring home the night before in my bag (2 distinctly senior moments in one day), so probably not in peak condition.

    @jayney27 welcome back

    @DJC3 that breakfast sounds great.

    It is my new favourite breakfast!

    How did you explain you’d got the wrong code? That did make me laugh, I can imagine the sudden dawning realisation.
