    Fbg 6.4 it's a different main number every day. I'm working on more reliable steady numbers.
    Mind u I'm varying my night liver dumping block time.
    Also I don't hv the same mealtimes on a weekend. We relax more but try to be more active. We'll more walking/kids playing without me. I sat on Saturday in damp just so little one could climb about but I had a few layers on.
    My new motto : wear more as it can be taken off but if opposite I risk a cold.
    Little one (8yrs old and autistic) was hot so insisted on peeling off to t-shirt. So when he started to cool off he was ambushed with his fleeced hoody and coat. Ha ha bless him.

    As posting I've realised over covid I've never even had a cold or a cough. Long may it continue eh? Some are really ill from new germs.

    Morning 1 in the Lake District as part of my partner's late birthday gift & a 6.1 to start off proceedings. Considering I slept terribly due to the hacking cough & a bit of red wine, I'll absolutely take that. Doing a Wainwright walk today which pre low carb me would never thought possible (only an easy one).

    Good morning assorted carbdodgers from far and wide. Swipey assessed the damage as worthy of a 5.5. Ouch, Right at my personal point where the level of control is totally outweighed by the lack of energy, minimal pleasure and family inconvenience of Elsie. However, God has given me time to resolve those issues so I give thanks and move on. Which is just what @garyclark82 is doing so :woot: for the amazing progress. :woot: also for @DEBBIESCOTT, @Marianne67 and @Estragon.
