    Hi all, 5.8 for me today. Had guests last night and did have cake, so a bit higher. Will try to walk some of that off. Be well.

    5.1 today. Slightly up which reflects the small white roll I ate with yesterday's ploughmans lunch. As my next HBA1C isn't for 6 months I'm going to do a few food trials for about 8 weeks. This small roll was extremely delicious especially when I slapped lashings of lovely butter on it but after 2 hours I was at 8.7 from 5.4. It went back down to 4.2! Think I will just have the butter next time :)

    Thanks for the link and I really hope you soon feel better and bloods show nothing disturbing @Goonergal. @ziggy_w thanks for the good wishes. 4.8 this morning so starting fasting early has worked.
    Yesterday I just watched TV including Churchill which seemed to portray him as a Gallipoli obsessed drunk and loads of sport which at least is real and live. We did learn that you can make bone broth using frozen bones and veggies which is brilliant - all we added was 1 bouquet garni and water. I strained everything except the liquid into a cup and added ACV and black pepper- loved it ! 9 hrs sleep so clearing this virus. Have a great day folks but if you are thinking of camping out at Windsor you are too late.:angelic:
    @Debandez the trials route at this period works perfectly for me so that seems like a perfect plan good luck.

    Morning all. 6.6 today

    I’ve been away for a few days and although I managed to eat fairly low carb I didn’t exercise much, just ambling round the sights and shops so I’m putting it down to that and will get back on the bike today. Have a lovely day.

    @DJC3 you obviously went to the wrong one of the big 2 Uni towns. Glad you enjoyed your time away and I have replied to your post in the moderate exercise thread.

    No test strips left yesterday morning but have some now - so at 7.30am 6.1 with Thai takeaway (1 spoonful rice with my tofu curry) and a slice of birthday cake last night - happy with that!

    Good morning fellow members of the tribe Dia Bet Es

    What a contrast to yesterday, sun is out and looks like being a pleasant day.

    My service to the blood loving Lady Vampira, rewarded me with a 6.2 this morning at 5.30am

    As they used to put on my school report 'Must try harder'

    A terrific Thursday to you all

    On upside, I have now lost over 2stone 1lb since february
