Today is day eight of my holiday and the first day of non-fasting since I’ve been here! This morning I had to do a warm water colema (as opposed to the coffee solution ones Ive been doing) and then insert some flora grow.. (friendly bacteria) and then wait two hours.. and then eat! Wooo!
Obviously you have to take things slowly at first so I had me a salad to go around lunchtime and ate my way through it while I watched X-Men 3. Which by the way aint that special.. I was expecting much MUCH more from it. Shame really. Ach well.
Anywhoo – back to what I mentioned yesterday -about that step?
Ok – I’ll try and make this as clear as possible – if you’ve been reading this blog from day one you’ll know that at first I was spending a fair bit of time with (amongst others) Lauren, Steve and Zoe..right? Right. And as the week went on I started hangin’ out with ZenJen, Sheli and Kim right? Right. So yeah – anyway a few days ago ZenJen asked me about Reiki and my experiences with it.. so I told her. But I couldn’t tell her without obviously explaining why I was there to put the whole thing into perspective.. which was cool. She was cool and that was that.
Anyway – that night when Kim stayed over.. Kim said: “Jen mentioned you went through a pretty rough breakup before you came over.. and that was what prompted you to come here..” Yeah I said.. I did. …and then it hit me.
I hadn’t thought any of my emotional crap in a good two days.
When I first got here I was talking about it to Lauren, Zoe et al.. and then when I fell in with the girls I had no urge to talk about why I was there. I was just ….there. Enjoying the moment. Living for the moment. ..and I’d put everything else aside.
So yeah – I had a proper moment. I had let go of a little bit more pain and angst and I hadnt even realised it. I smiled a big smile and Kim and I carried on chatting the night away..
I’ve met so many great people here.. swapped loads of email addresses and stuff and there’s a whole bunch of us who are gonna hook up when we get home.
S’gonna be cool.
But yeah – today I am ready to come home.
I feel like I have achieved what I set out to achieve and more and if I had to fly home tonight then I could do so happily.
As it stands I dont leave til Sunday – I’m HOPING I’ve got enough cash left.. (ooer) to last me til Sunday – Steve wants to hire a jeep and go round the island tomorrow – so that should be good – then I think i’ll spend saturday just chilling out round the spa.. then after that? Well after that I guess I’ll pack!
… s’gonna be a long day Sunday. I’m up at 630 to catch the 740 flight to Bangkok.. then catch a 12hr flight from Bangkok around lunchtime ish… I land at Heathrow at 1915 UK time Sunday evening. Fingers crossed I’ll be too knackered to go out and do anything but we’ll see eh?!
My friend Caroline’s just left.. bless her – she’s off to hedonise herself up on Koh Phangyang (I think thats how you spell it) – Happy travelling Caroline – its been good talking to you. You’ve been uber supportive of everything I’ve done and its been good gossiping with you too! …see you back home babe.
OMG. Weight time.
So… before I decided I was coming to Thailand I was around 14st.
Then I started my two week pre-cleanse.
Day one of my fast I was 12st 10lbs.
Today I am 11st 10lbs.
Wow. I cant believe it. I haven’t been that weight since college I swear it!
So there you go. Thin old Whatters.
I’m gonna go get me some food now – catch ya laters potatas!
