    5.8 this morning.
    Great progress @oldnevada
    Hugs @mojo37 the late shift + takeaway is such an easy habit to get into - I was exactly the same when I was working shifts. Could you chuck something in a slow cooker so it’s ready for when you get in on those days?

    Ah sorry - I just reread your post @mojo37 and realise you said you were having a takeaway while actually at work - a slow cooker probably isn’t the best idea then. Lol!

    8.3 this morning, 3 hours earlier than usual, I'm blaming it on the nightmare that woke me up, because I ate fairly sensibly last night with no late-night snack. Sigh.

    Morning, not quite sure how I managed 5.4 this morning but that’s after a very very naughty Sunday, 3 or 4 roasties and the trimmings, sticky toffee pudding and custard for after and still on steroids and methotrexate. As my mum used to say, be grateful for small mercies!
