My diabetes avoidance blog – continued

Yesterday I ate salmon and greens for dinner. I had eaten an afternoon snack of brown rice with sugar-free jam.

I admit to finishing off the “birthday” white chocolate.

I rang my G P who is arranging more tests as he doesn’t like my persistently low iron levels.

I’m still waiting to hear back on a date to attend the diabetes prevention programme as they are all booked up.

Today, I ate the Scottish oatcakes with cheese and apple.

I cycled at an average of 22k, up a few hills; my best average speed in a year.

I feel good.

I’m going to blog once a week now, as my novel deserves my best writing energy.

Stay healthy,
