Morning

Popping my head in to say thanks for the lovely comments, no reading as I can't remember what it was

Seems there was something going on up the town through the night, saw in a local roads FB page that there were quite a few armed police up there, no word of what the incident was though xx
Hopefully it was nobody nicking your favourite biscuits :)

Good morning everyone :)

6.3 today after a McDonalds coke malfunction last night sent me up to 15.3 again (still annoyed I didn’t notice:mad:)

Other than that, we’re settled, attention is now turning to getting back into running. 4 weeks before I do my first 5k since Idek when :p

Wishing everyone a good day, and sending love and support to those who need it :)

Morning All
A very late start as I didn’t wake till 09:00. ( But it is Sunday, a day of rest. )
A 6.8 on waking. Last night at bedtime I’d dropped to 4.6, so had 37g toast and 2 cream crackers, along with the 6 units of Basal Lantus.
(24.87 carbs). Possibly slightly too many but still in target range and did not give hypo overnight, well not that I know.
Have a great day and stay safe and as cheerful as you can.

Morning all and it was a 4.7 for me.

Today's excitement will.be a photo/video shoot. Excitement may be an exaggeration.

If your day has started badly I hope it if improves, if it started well long may it continue.

Bit late this morning, answering emails! Good morning everybody although it is 11.35, thinking of putting some painting stuff together today. I’m joining a new art class on tuesday so I want to be ready. Not very good at getting organised, always at the last minute! Hope everybody is well, I was a bit high this morning, getting to be a habit and I can’t see why! Going to bed was good. Hoping to see a new diabetologist soon.
Onwards and upwards, it’s ok now! Off to my messy room where my art stuff is ‍

Hi and welcome to the thread. Pleased you have come to join us. Whilst posting your waking reading isn't compulsory, I am wondering if it slipped your mind or perhaps you didn't want to own it if it was a bit high. I would just like to reassure you that there is no judgement here just support. Most of us get readings that we aren't too happy with from time to time and sometimes more often than we would like but it can be helpful to post them still as it reassures others perhaps less experienced that naff readings are normal occasionally.... otherwise it creates a false appearance of diabetes being easy to manage if we only post good readings.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy your new art class. I'm a practical person but I haven't got an artistic bone in my body.... I can appreciate other people's efforts though, so feel free to post a photo of your creations.

5.1 so close ! After going to bed on and 8.3 and waking up to a high alarm of 15.8 at 3am. I guess it was the Chinese and getting it wrong. Why are Chinese meals hard to work out despite using the “correct” calculation based on carbs and Cals app thing !

Have a good rest of the day all

Would just like to say I smashed my Chinese takeaway last night and I bolused without even knowing what I was going to be eating!! :eek: (breath on fingernails and polish them on lapel emoji)..... hope you like that one @Lanny. Total fluke of course but I am claiming it was pure skill!

I haven’t tried Chinese yet, another experience or experiment down the line.
However been using FatSecret for just over a week instead of carbs and Cals. Find it easier to use and by the look of my Blood Glucose seems more accurate. BUT that could be just luck. It’s also free.

I'm glad you're finding the FatSecret app useful. I hadn't used it for a year or so and when I re-visited it the other day, I was pleased to see lots more UK barcodes being recognised.

Very late on parade today as I was up and out very early, 5.9 after a very busy and carby day yesterday so was amazed and pleased with that.

Did a 10k run at IWM Duxford today, managed to get a personal best, then a lovely day looking aroun, haven't been there for quite a few years so was lovely.

Food wise been very badly today, bacon roll, scone, jam and cream and now 2 slices of pizza and garlic bread. But after today going to be good until my op next week.

Sorry haven't had chance yet to read all today's posts yet.

One advantage with the FatSecret app is that if the barcode does not work you can scan it and then enter information yourself before saving it. Yes that bit can be time consuming the first few times but it gets easier as the foods you use are recognised.

Had a minor success this lunchtime. I found some Rhubarb in the freezer and seeing as not had it for ages, since diagnosed, i made it up and chanced it.
Instuctions
250g Frozen Rhubarb
30g Sugar. (That was the worrying one). First time adding sugar to anything.
25 ml Water.

Boil together until ready.
13:32 Before lunch BG was 7.2
13:33. 3 units NovoRapid

13:48. Lunch
Pudding time. 120g Rhubarb mix. (Made up as above)
Carbs. 13.32 Protein. 1.08. Fats. 0.12. Cal. 60

Think it might have spiked BG mid afternoon but at
17:28 checked in trepidation.
BG 5.2. Yes. I can eat tasty things at last. In moderation.
Might celebrate with a beer, but that’s another thing not had yet. Better not push luck too far in one day!!

Update.

A really good day.

I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and to speak out as many blessings I could think of whilst on my morning walk after whichbI went to church which was really very good too.

When I eventually got home things were good and the day improved and improved.

We (that's WE) made a pizza together for tea and it was great. A good time together too. I could have eaten it all but had to be satisfied with just 1/8th of it.

Thanks for all your well wishes and encouragement. A good day

Yessss first up and I woke up late too. Well, i woke at 3:15am. Shut my eyes and it was instantly 5:30am !!!

Well, BG 4.6 again low but ok

Slight concern pulse is still v low confirmed by both machines at 53bpm. And yet no other effects from it. If it drops to beliow 50bpm I will have a chat to the doctor (if I can)

I feel so much better this morning. Back to my normal (?) Self

Weight has dropped to 55.4Kg. I think I may have been 'full' of flapjack for a couple of days.

Nothing special planned for today. I may play my keyboard a little.
