Hi girlies, sorry for my distinct lack of update last night. The Boy was being supremely selfish and monopolising the laptop, and I consoled myself by watching much Poirot. I love Poirot, and David Suchet (I am sure that almost none of you will have a clue what I am talking about).

So, in items of note, I finally quit my old gym and joined the Fitness First located about a four minute walk from my apartment. So I have no excuse, and I actually feel very positive about it. I plan to go tomorrow evening (about 9pm) after work. I do not know anyone who goes to this gym in all honesty, but I may try to convince L to go with me (at least some of the time). But either way I am still going to go. I am aiming for 3 times each week, at least. They also have aromatherapy steam rooms! Which is heavenly as I adore them. I cannot stand saunas though, they always seem to burn my nostrils as I forget about what happens when you breathe really deeply through your nose! Steam rooms are amazing, and the eucalyptus and lavender scents are so dreamy! Also I plan to have a massage there as soon as I can, as I have been sleeping in very strange positions lately and am constantly waking up with either neck ache, back ache or both! Also I love massages!

Yesterday I did not do so well at the liquid fast. I would not say it was a binge. But I ate a fair bit. But is was all healthy (fruit mainly, cucumber and a turkey steak), so I am not going to completely berate myself! Today has been fruit and cucumber. I really think I may be becoming addicted to these organic frozen raspberries, they are so delicious! I am actually going to the 24 hour grocery store after work (about 1am) to pick up some more!

Oh, I have just been invited to a birthday party in london at the end of march for a guy I was at school in singapore with. I have not seen him in years but we kept in touch. He is such a sweet guy, he was the youngest son of my german teacher and a history teacher in Singapore, so he was half german half south african. He is so smart and funny, I just like talking to him. This is going to sound so egotistical, and it is really not meant to be, but he was in love with me in Singapore (well as in a love as a 16 year old can be). We took french, german and history together. He would do the sweetest things, but I was so naive I never realised he liked me like that. He used to give me packets of my favourite sweets that he had specially doctored to only contain my favourite flavours every week. He did a lot of the things anonymously. On Valentines he would send a dozen red roses though the school service to me during class. At christmas he would send me candy canes. At easter he would send daffodils. And each thing would have a sonnet he had written for me signed anonymous. He never hit on me in real life though. We were friends but I would not have said yes, as I just didn't have those feelings for him. But he is the kindest guy ever. So I am so excited to get to see him so soon. The down side? Quite a few of my class mates (mainly only the boys) from my years in Singapore will be there, and I have not seen them since I was at my skinniest! So I need to power lose weight for then! Which is pressure!

I just wanted to say congratulations to Reese on getting engaged! I am so thrilled for you!

I hope everyone is holding on and doing well with SBC. Knowing i have this party means I am in need of it more than ever!

Oh and like everyone else sorry I have not commented for a little while blogger is being... difficult!

Much love,

Ella xx


  1. I haven't been able to comment in days!
    Good job on the healthy eating!

  2. I have a question about the frozen berries =) I'm curious ~ how do you eat them? I love them but I usually only put them in smoothies or mix them through some yogurt.

    Also I know how you feel about seeing old friends and being not as as skinny as you were before. I went to visit some old friends of mine and everyone who I met up with would say 'wow, you've put on weight'. The worst comment was 'oh, your fater now'. It was awful =( ...I endured a month of it. Anyway, I hope your firends will not do that! good luck
