    6.3 and all is well.
    Apart from not going out in the gale force wind and hail storm.
    Good that I did shopping yesterday, so a day of slothfulness ahead. Although , perhaps will try some Pilates exercises.

    6.2 this morning - had a tooth out on Tuesday which had been bothering me - I have severe gum disease thanks to the D. Anyway, long story short, an almost instant return to the numbers I like and which reflect my righteous battle with the D and low carb. It's so frustrating when there are unseen complications affecting control.

    Thank you, I enjoy boring people about following a LC/HF diet
    4.8 for me today, first time I’ve been in the 4’s.
    I put it down to chicken egg fried cauliflower rice, and stopped eating bread as it made me bloated.

    8.6 - “8.6, is the NEW 5.6” No, not really…. Same as yesterday. Drifted sleep. Got up far too early and allowed Ms. Dawn P to mess with my head before I got to the Pricks ‘n Strips.
