    Morning all. Exactly 4.0 today. Guessing it’s lower as for the first time in ages I was woken by my alarm so in a deep sleep. That, and fish for dinner!

    Four day week today - off away for the weekend. Yay!

    Have a good day all and @DJC3 good luck today. Thinking of you.

    Morning all and thank you so much for your good wishes for the scan today.
    Wasn’t going to check bg this morning as I assumed it’d be sky high, but old habits die hard and I did - 5.3 I’m quite frankly amazed!
    Hope its a good omen for the rest of the day!

    Have a lovely day everyone

    5.6 for me at 0700.
    Couple of things about the Freestyle Libra;
    I could see that I dipped below 3 at around 2am.
    After my sauna yesterday I foolishly checked my reading (you can just hold your phone to the disc and the app does the rest).
    Reading of 9.3 - Whaaaat!!!!!
    Dashed downstairs and did a finger prick test - 5.3.
    Freestyle Libra not likee saunas.
    Have a great day if you can.

    That’s not miserable. It’s within the commonly accepted limits of moment-to-moment toxicity, and still gives you plenty of room to improve. Trends, and having the patience & curiosity to figure out what influences them over time is the key to success. Obsessing over the individual data points is merely the key to stress :)
