    4.7 at 5.30AM. I did manage to get through yesterday without taking paracetamol and completing my fast. I had relatively high readings throughout the course of the day with an average of 6.0 but the overnight average is a decent 4.6 so I think things are coming back to normal.

    I am still a bit heavy headed but shivering has reduced as has the body ache. Headache persists for now.

    Have a great day everyone. :)

    6.3 after 14 hour fast, at least managed to sleep through till 6am , so shoulder less trouble than normal.

    Rest day from running today, but may go for an early morning walk on same route , it’s very foggy, hopefully once cleared it will be another lovely day.

    Just got the HbA1c results from yesterdays blood draw.The result is 5.3% which is equivalent to 111mg/dl or 6.2 mmoles/l.

    Also means that my Caresens BG meter is very accurate and performing well.

    6.8 - Number up by 0.5. I ate quarter of a Honeydew Melon 10 hours ago? I’m up one hour earlier than yesterday? It’s Tuesday? Well, I ain’t constipated. Gotta love Metformin!
