    Wow! That’s great, well done! sounds like you had a good time. We are off to the Lakes in a few weeks, I hope it has a similar relaxing effect on my BG

    Near Windermere. Postponed from last summer so I hope there isn’t another lockdown that stops us going again.

    lovely place that, am sure you will enjoy your stay there especially if your furry friends are accompanying you and it will in all likelihood help with BG numbers too.

    Oh well, could just as easily be due to the phase of the moon. Tomorrow's another day. Crack on.

    4.7 at 6AM, almost 60 hours into fasting. I will be eating today and most likely my carb intake will be higher than usual eating days.

    Have a great Sunday and a very happy fathers day to all dads on the forum. :)

    6.0 today. Better than the last few days but still so much room for improvement.
    I hope you will be getting a good Father’s Day feast after that marathon fast @nutribolt
    Happy Father’s Day to all the dads.

    5.1 this morning after getting up around 5.30. Still haven't worked out this Libre but it actually coincided with my Tee 2 this morning. According to the Libre estimates over the week my HbA1c should be around 34! A phrase my mum used to use came to mind, "And the band played believe it is you like!". I am estimating around 40 if I am fortunate. Have a good day folks.

    Just to add jealous of @DJC3 going to the lakes, they are a couple of hours drive away but we haven't been there yet this year. Hope the weather holds good for you. Enjoy!

    5.6 this morning. Lower than it has been recently but I can’t take any of the credit - it’s due to the champagne I had yesterday and my liver still busily detoxifying.
