    Here we go again team, with another week starting off at 7.8
    This is my first post for almost a week. I have been extremely busy over the last few days and have watched my numbers climbing slightly. My job is quite stressful and it is believed by many that stress can trigger higher numbers.
    Which is why I am such an advocate of the benefits of meditation.
    However I really should practice what I teach ;)

    (See my latest blog for some of the reasons for my stress)

    You MUST be more aware of what you eat Before You Eat It... or not, if you truly are aware!

    I have found the same Star. Ours is not to reason why? Ours is just to do or die... or 'just' lose a toe, or foot, or leg... or our eyesight or have a million and one other health issues that walk in our shadow waiting for us to stop doing what we know we should and catch us up.

    Follow me I'm right behind you!
    Keep on keeping on

    It isn’t just the insulin Flic. This isn’t a diet to look better. This is a diet to save your quality of life. You can do it but you are the only one who can control it. No one else.

    Good night Flic. It is helpful to see what your levels are before bed and as soon as you wake in the morning.
    Expect it to be a bit higher.
    Have a good night.
