    FBG 5.7 this morning. Been out walking this morning, lovely sunny day, enjoyed it. My feet didn't though, probably went a little further than I intended particularly as I have not been walking so much lately. Gave up after 17,000 steps and got the bus home.

    !7000 steps seems almost unimaginable to me I feel it a minor miracle if I get over 5000 steps in a day so congrats on that.

    Thank you.. Must admit my walking effort lately has been in the hundreds of steps rather than thousands so decided to stir myself up a bit, plus that walk is particularly pretty and interesting with woodland and sea views.

    5.8 this morning. Glad to see a five of any description. Maybe the walking yesterday helped, I don’t go very fast or far as our dog stops to sniff every leaf and twig but it’s quite hilly. My health app says I climbed 39 floors.

    Morning All. 6.0 so getting better but its a mystery. @Peadair O Brionn in the last few days my levels have not been right either though I was unwell on Monday. I have always wondered if the changing seasons affect us and we need to readjust. Good luck, levels still good.

    6.1 or 5.8 or 6.4 depending on which strip you read. Lets just go for the first one....

    6.1 this morning. Have a good day everyone.

    Granddaughter currently self isolating as someone in the class tested positive. Her's was the last class in the school that wasn't self-isolating. I wonder how many times this is going to happen over the coming months and how much school work will be lost. Then there is also the fact that she is not old enough to be left in the house on her own. Hopefully DIL can arrange to work from home.

    I find that walking, or any sort of exercise in the morning, causes BG to rise. Then, after lunch, drops sharply to mid to low 4s. So overall average is lower, despite the rise after exercise.
