    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.

    5.4 at 6AM although overnight average was 6.6 and it did go into 8s for about an hour 4AM and 5AM.

    Now I did eat a lot more carbs yesterday... half slice of a normal bread cheese toast, a bowl of potato chips and one naan bread so I was fully prepared to see the morning reading to even be in 9s and an average in 7s or 8s... considering all my sins of yesterday, 5.4 is a brilliant result as is the overnight average of 6.6.

    However, its fasting today so should give body more time to expel the bad stuff inside.

    Have a great start of the week everyone. :)

    5.6 today. Tryed a tiny bit of gravey yesterday on my basic turky dinner and bloods went up a bit (was 4.2 at 12 midday when i checked at 4.30 was 8.6). Not sure if it was a inaccurate reading as i should have done another check just to make sure and i didnt check what my level was before the meal so a bit of a rookie mistake. Still learning :)

    All good in the hood @ultradad. Six years in and I still can't find a gravy/sauces/ragu workaround - except avoid hot/warm cooked food wherever possible. Small glass of red wine and lots of steps/exercise bike afterwards to mitigate damage or just not test anymore is the best I can do so no rookie error at all IMHO.

    Yay @DJC3 - any idea why? Swipey reckons 4.5 - feasible if not necessarily true. 3 days of looking for my reader didn't reveal said device but I did find 2 flying pig ornaments and 2 silver cake knives. No rush but finding our passports would also be useful at some stage.

    No, no idea why. It’s like Russian roulette every day.
    Passports? Are you hoping to book somewhere exotic?

    Good morning all. We are promised sun and 20C here today so nearly ok. An fbg of 5.3 this morning, unwelcome but seemingly not carb related - about 17 gms yesterday. Today I look after my patient and a far too cute granddaughter - not sure what they have done to deserve that. Tinkety Tonk Old Fruits.

    4.6 at 6AM. Overnight average of 5.7.

    Yesterday was my eating day so these numbers are a bit of a pleasant surprise especially because I had pizza made from that low carb pizza base and lot of greens.

    Have a wonderful day everyone. :)
