    HbA1c (mmol/mol): Highest 111 (Dx 2017) 118 (2019) Lowest 45 (2017)
    CURRENT: 48 (2020)
    January 2021 Starting Weight: 10st 5lb

    A few days MIA - tennis has started (I run a sports website and am a tennis journalist) so have been awake at 6am and working through to late in the evenings with the last tournament in Delray Beach. And it started midweek which has really thrown me! Anyway....

    1) FBG (mmol/L) 5.7 ➡️ 🟢 ... Took a couple of days to steady after a cardio boxing session. Reads low throughout the night - some of it is down to sleeping on it but who knows!
    2) Carb Goal <150g 🟠 (141g)
    3) Calories Goal < 🟢
    4) Treadmill C25K ❌ My first running fail, new knee braces and I strapped one on two tight and was hobbling as it was cutting into my calf. Also the jump from W3 to W4 is huge and I am having to build up from 3m runs so have decided to repeat that for another two weeks to build up. But very annoyed at myself!
    5) Water - 48oz💧💦 Better but could be a lot more but finding once I get into writing/watching what is going on I just forget!

    Hmm... thinks can only get better, right?

    Calories and carbs both good. I was a handful of calories over goal but set a new move and exercise record on my watch so I think I was good for the day.

    Protein was way over my 100g goal but I ate early dinner and felt hungry later in the evening but refrained from snacking.

    As expected, I stepped on the scale this morning to check in for my weight loss comp and was down a measly .2 pounds! Geez, I worked hard and the scale flipped me off. What does @baconslave say? Consistency? Yep, that’s my focus.

    January 2021 Starting Weight: 10st 5lb

    1) FBG (mmol/L) 4.6 ➡️ 🟢 ... Actually read normal through the night. Who knows with this little device what goes through its mechanical mind!
    2) Carb Goal <150g 🟠 (121g)
    3) Calories Goal < 🟢
    4) Spinbike C25K W4 (3.5min instead of 5min bursts) - better but right knee still painful and a little inflamed so will build in a rest day.
    5) Water - 34oz💧💦 Not as good ... Aiming to have two 27oz bottle's worth in the morning and the afternoon into the evening at the very least.

    Calories carbs and protein all good for the day. I’m mad at the scale and snacked on popcorn after dinner so that likely won’t help. Maybe I’ll see movement in the coming week. Again, gotta stay consistent!

    Past two days were a bust. No excuses, just didn't do what I needed.

    Carbs and calories under goal ✅
    Protein over 100g ❌ came in around 75.
    Close watch rings ✅ barely made the move goal but I squeaked it out before bed.

    I put on some work pants today to feel more normal. The legs are snug from the weight lifting I’m doing but the waist is nice and loose. I can live with that.
