    Just prepping for my talk next month. Found these. Thought they were quite good lists so sharing. Which do you prefer?

    Didn’t get round to posting this morning and I’m not sure I’ve read all the posts I’ve missed.
    To start with Happy Anniversary @PenguinMum 35 years is really something to celebrate.
    @Debandez I prefer the look of the second one but the content of the first as it has English translations of the American veg. Sorry to prevaricate - not what you wanted!

    Edit to add fBG which I forgot again it was 5.6

    i think the first one has the look of something more modern
    almost what you'd see in a restaurant.

    all the advice seem decent, if a little over explained on the 2nd one, imo.

    so my final answer, chris ..A. the 1st one ending 853.

    5.6 at half 5 this morning. I’d have easily taken a 6 something in exchange for a couple more hours of sleep mind. Off out today and I’m sure those couple of hours will hit me at some point. Hope everyone has a good day today.

    5.4 this morning. Into the garage before work to tackle 1/7th of the camp crates. I am determined to get them sorted this week. That is 8.5 crates to deal with.
    Take care

    Morning all. At the clinic tomorrow for the annual retinopathy test. I react really badly to those drops. Guess a man's gotta do...etc.

    Had the full Indian last night, with beers too, so no surprise this morning to have FBG at 7.7 mmo/lt at 0630 hrs.

    Still working on the flax bread recipe. That American lady may well be right about the eggs after all. One egg was not enough to enable a good rise, she used five, so three is my next number. Also plan to sub in some more almond flour and try baking powder instead of bicarb/cider vinegar.

    I like the first one - easier to look through, but the second has more info.

    6.7 this morning after an awful night’s ‘sleep.’ Something I’d eaten gave me stomach ache. A good job I don’t have to work- am so tired.

    5.4 this morning.
    @Viv19 hope your tum is better now and you can get some rest today
    @Bildad good luck with sorting all those camp crates - sounds like a daunting task.
    @Fndwheelie hope you have a more restful nights sleep tonight - it’s so frustrating when that happens.
    Have a happy Monday everyone, not sure about my plans for the day but the weather looks nice atm so a nice walk somewhere I think, with a coffee/ cafe stop.

    5.7 today. Had a brilliant day yesterday and did an absolutely enormous amount of admin. Only problem was that I was doing so well I just kept on going instead of stopping at a sensible time to pack my case. But it was such a lovely feeling to have all the urgent paperwork done.

    Had a 3.9 at 2pm yesterday which was unusual. I took BS because I did feel I was having a hypo. Body is getting used to lots more than lower numbers because I no longer get hypo warnings until I get down to 4.1.

    Have showered and washed hair so will just have one more coffee and will start packing. Husband has taken dogs out to the park so I won't have to rush around - which I really appreciate.

    We are heading to Dunwich heath which is stunning this time of year as all the heather is in full bloom and then on to our hotel for a leisurely dinner.

    fbg 8.1

    Looks like a nicer day outside than yesterday.

    I have been thinking a week or so now of re reading my book eat right for your blood type.

    I bought it early 2000's and I thought nah, at the time.

    About 2010 a friend insisted it was good and it solved her fibromyalgia and this that and the other. So I read it again. But again I thought nah...

    Yesterday I re read it properly. And I think I could be more into trying it out. At least to the point of perhaps avoiding all the foods it says avoid. There are neutral foods which are ok. But it is better to go with the good foods for your blood type.

    According to this book I am eating too much meat for my blood type. And this is the reason I am not losing weight. I have been losing weight, but I plateaued again.

    I was already thinking maybe I was eating a lot of meat and maybe to try and introduce more fish. And the book tells me I should be eating more fish. So I am okay with that.

    So, I will be looking into it more today. And researching online about this and diabetes.

    Any thoughts any of you had would be welcomed, even if you are dead set against it and give me a reason why.

    I will be doing this gradually anyway, because I have only relatively recently got out of the double figures. I want to be able to get nearer to a 6 to 7 more regularly in my during the day readings.

    Have a good day. It looks nice outside. Hopefully it continues.

    I like the second one best.
    I find it easier to read, the way it is laid out.

    good morning all :)

    4.3 today

    it's been quite a bit cooler here this last couple of days, down to 11'C this morning but at least it's not currently raining ;)
    We did manage a walk with mum's little dog yesterday and only got slightly soggy.

    Wish we could get something done in the garden at mum's before her visitors arrive later in the week but it's just too wet at the moment. Honestly I think this particular set of visitors won't notice ('I think 'may slide into 'I hope' as the week/weather goes on :sorry:). On past form it doesn't seem to occur to them to go out into the garden unless we actually take food outside :hilarious:

    Mum prefers everything tidy when she's having visitors though :)

    @ianpspurs Hope things go well for you

    @PenguinMum Happy Anniversary


    Hope your Monday treats you kindly :)
