    6.6 - “Whilst in the Land o’ The Sticky-Sixes, Estragon mused on the repetitiousness of existence. Then went into the garden and ate……..

    Sunday will be relatives and Leg of Lamb accompanied by Cote du Rhône. That always cheers me up.

    Morning all. 5.7 on Swipey - no it won't do. My hunch is I simply have no bandwidth to deal well with bugs on the <1800 cals which is all I can usually force myself to eat by constraining carbs to 15-30. I managed 5 years much better but this move is a pig to integrate into a lifestyle I understand anymore. 2 thinking caps needed fella. I simply hate losing anything and yes I know being a Spurs fan I should be used to it.

    5.8 this morning at 0645.

    Started using a Libre 2 for first time yesterday, so I can track BG trends while running, really surprised for the size of what looks like the needle in the applicator , I didn’t feel it go in at all , now assume that the needle looking thing is just a guide and the sensor itself is a lot thinner !

    5.6 this morning, still pretty pleasing overall. 10 days until my blood test for my three monthly review so want to keep on keeping on until then and then we can see what happens.

    4.7 today - the usual Sunday lunch wine effect.
    @Mrs T 123 I hope you have fully recovered now. Covid seems to give people higher than usual BGs for quite some time.
