    5.2. Having my only Easter treat today, a hot cross bun with butter. I’m so looking forward to it.

    Yes I think if I got my Hba1c tested it might give me the kick I need to get myself sorted .Also it turns out that I have a uti so that has probably effected some of my reading .

    Sneaked back into the fives club with a 5.9 which is a nice enough birthday present.
    I’m tempted by a hot cross bun too @CostswoldsBloke but I don’t think I’m brave enough, enjoy.

    Had a few 9's over the last couple of days but it turns out that I have a uti so that might have been the reason ...think I will have to resort to antibiotics because got some heavy work shifts all over Easter and most of nxt week .

    4.3 today at 84 hours into fasting. Average is 4.0 and some of the readings were in 3.x (35% were below 3.9 though nothing below 3.6) so hopefully liver dump is taken care of.

    I am feeling quite tip-top so I am planning to take this to 96 hours mark but we will see how the events unfold during the day. Mrs. Nutribolt is right on the edge so might have to eat earlier.:D

    Have a great start of the long weekend everyone. :)

    I am embarrassed to report 7.3 after a perfect storm yesterday of chocolate cake making involving bowl licks and mini eggs and Fish Finger Firsday. I need to be much better today when the clan of 6 meets outside for the first time since Christmas 2019.

    Mmm back in the 7s


    Been suffering from a head cold sinus since 15th March I'm now thinking that is not helping with my BSL as well. Might see if I can get in to see doctor and no don't think it's covid as been sneezing and stuffy nose headaches which I don't think are symptoms of covid but will ring my clinic see what they say to do

    Happy birthday @DJC3 and many more to come. Swipey showed 4.5 @ 4.05 am rising to 4.8 by 5.20 am. What it was really matters not in some ways as what I eat and do won't change much for now but they will evolve. Friday will always be super salmon salad day. Enjoy the gathering @PenguinMum - very brave as the wind would cut you in half here. Hug for the UTI @mojo37

    UTIs are awful - poor you. That would certainly push things up temporarily. Rattle the GPs cage.

    Good morning all,

    5.2 this morning.

    @DJC3 -- Happy birthday, hope you'll have a ball of a day.
    @PenguinMum -- Enjoy the time with your family.
    @mojo37 -- Hugs for the UTI.
    @annabell1 -- Hugs for the cold.
    @KStag -- Welcome to the thread. Re higher fasting levels, this might be the dreaded dawn phenomenon. Many of us, see higher levels upon getting up than later in the day.
