    7.5 at first stab. What?!?! Wash hands, stab again. 7.7! I thought, like Tommy's followers, "No. We're not gonna take it!"
    Gonna shake it.
    Not gonna break it.
    Let's forget it, better still.

    On with the show ... er ... day.

    @PenguinMum thank you. :) One thing the KittenCat definitely "gets up" to while I'm gone is her windowsill. If she is up there before I leave I get her down, because she has been known to fall asleep there and then fall off in her sleep, so I get her down and settle her on the sofa or the bed. But sometimes when I come back she is back up on the sill. Or, worse* the back of the sofa.

    *Better, in her opinion. I keep a chair barricade in front of the window sill to keep her from rolling off, and of course I keep an eye on her when she is up there when I am here. ^. .^

    @Muddy Cyclist I remember one day in particular when I was going to try a new horse. He was huge, and very dusty, and by the time I'd cleaned him up for our ride not only was there no time left to ride, I was too exhausted to tack up!

    Just had to quickly post here. Will catch up with the forum this evening.

    Just checked and my hb1ac result is already on my medical records. It is - drum roll - 36 mmol/mol.

    OMG this is the first time ever it has been below 42. I am so happy. At last it is reflecting what my meter is showing - this has taken me absolutely by surprise I just wasn't expecting a good result.

    5.3 @ 7am this morning, then I rolled over and went back to sleep until mid-day. Yesterday I made progress on the cat medallion bracelet, few more to do then tackle the ditties bracelet again.

    @Krystyna23040 absolutely amazing A1c which just proves LC and testing has worked wonders for you. @Fndwheelie really good fasting level and beautiful medallion bracelet.

    Good morning a 5.8 at 6 am. A dark morning but the wearher men have promised lots of sunshine so I'm full of optimism.

    Thank you very much @Krystyna23040
    I need to eat all my food earlier in the day.
    Not always viable when company, especially with the rare visits from Oz.

    @Muddy Cyclist good fasting reading and always a sound plan to be optimistic. The OK elements of today's key data were a fasting bg of 5.5 and a resting pulse heading down - 63 today. Unsure where the bottom of the 5 month decline will be for the wider picture. Not loving the current 5 hrs sleep - 4.00 am wake up is no use to me. I assume resting pulse up to mid 60s is down to 6 weeks of sitting about/tethered to a hospital bed. Today approaching 75 kgs seemingly out of nowhere. I would love a reset button to June/July 2018. This is a hard old row to hoe just now and the old ways don't seem to be working. I assume it would all be worse without LC but definitely severely testing my trust. Guess this is the acid test of my long term commitment to LC and if it has bouncebackability.

    5.4 this morning and there's carnage on the lawn. Looks like the tabby has cornered a pigeon, happens occasionally, so I'd best clear that up before going for a walk. Enjoy the day :)

    4.3 this morning, after feeling really pleased with myself I realised I only had 3/4 of my 4 daily shakes yesterday. So I’m gonna squeeze in an extra one today. Yesterday I finished 2 more medallions I have 2 more to make before assembly. I have got a chiropractor appointment today, never been to anything like this but hoping he can help sort my back out. Included a picture of 2 of the 3 finished medallions.

    Great fasting reading @HarrisonK. Nature red in tooth and claw is not all that cuddly.
