    A very respectable 4.9. I was apprehensive about taking the plunge this morning as a can of pea and ham soup (16g carbs) seemed to elevate my BG yesterday evening. But I'm well happy with today's score on the board:)

    @Freema the weather was glorious at the weekend (bank holiday in England) but true to form is back to 4 seasons in one day!

    Back to work for four days, this morning I managed 5.8.

    We had a short period of rain last night in the Midlands, but the sun is shining now and the forecast looks good for the next few days :)

    Good morning all, a magnificent 6.7, considering I had a hypo at 3am due to forgetting to run a temp basal after training last night, I will take that all day long. (normally I'm in double figures after a hypo)

    Take care everyone.

    Good morning fellow finger prickers.

    Today, Lady Vampira, has returned me to the 6's club with a 6.2, seems I only have a temporary membership of the 5's club.

    Wishing you all the very best on this wet Thursday

    6.0 this morning @Mick1959 I’m waiting outside the 5s club door too, we’ll get back in soon.

    @Stephenm 2 it’s really hard to eat well at those things, so much bread based food. 6.6 isn’t so bad though.

    @johnpol hope you are ok today

    Good morning, a 4.7 on the prickometer this morning. 30 minute kettlebell workout and a sauna as reward (look at what you’ve won).
    Trip tomorrow on my bike.
    Mrs Miggins: “are you going to pack today?’
    Me: “no, I is a bloke, it can be left until tomorrow, just before I go”.

    Can you spell contusion ? Dunelm can.

    yes I am fine thank you for asking, it was my own fault as I had a heavy training session and I normally run a temp basal and have a small bite to eat, forgot to do both:banghead:. So only myself to blame!!!

    Morning everyone. A disappointing day weather wise after the last few days and a similar fbg at 5. More sleep last night - well over 8 hrs - and consequently later testing fbg - so that may have nudged fbg higher.
    Sat talking with a friend who is with us recovering from surgery yesterday but sent home in lots of pain with no pain relief. Lives on her own so crazy decision to send her home. BG now at alarming 5.8 so sloth really is a deadly sin. Beginning to look as if Randle is spot on - no exercise/movement leaves glucose floating about to infuriate you on testing.
