Bye, bye solid food!
Oops, this was supposed to be posted last night… sorry guys! I’ll still post my Day 1 recap of the Blue Print Cleanse tonight though!
Today got a taad bit hectic and I just needed something to chill out and get rid of all of my negativity. I figured a Vinyasa Yoga class was just the thing to set things straight… man was I right. Every time I walk out of a yoga class I always tell myself I need to go more. I’m now making a pact that Wednesday night is going to be yoga night, no if’s and’s or but’s!
After class I had to stop by the Bikram Yoga studio on the UES to pick up the heaviest box of juices I have every tried to carry. I definitely got an arm workout! Juices for what? Tomorrow I am starting a 3-day juice feast through the BluePrintCleanse! This is my second time doing a three-day cleanse and I’m super excited. It’s tough to do, I’m not going to lie, but I really wanted to do this to get myself back on track. Recently I’ve been letting myself get bogged down by stress, work, etc. and I have noticed all of my sugar & junk food craving slowly creep back into my life which is not ok. I honestly hate when it does to my state of mind as well as my skin.
The pre-cleanse instructions state “LISTEN UP! NO farewell-to-solid- foods-with-a-steak-and-martini dinner the night before you start. You will NOT be a happy camper by the end of Day One. And that’s a promise”. Well considering I don’t eat meat, I don’t have to worry about that, but I still tried to keep my eats pretty clean today.
I started off with a big salad filled with cukes, chickpeas, olives & an amazing homemade dijon mustard vinaigrette. Followed by some edamame and stove top popcorn (that I ate too quick to get a picture of).
I’m nervous about tomorrow because I always have trouble getting into the cleanse despite not actually being hungry… I just sorta miss chewing. They give you a list of “cheat foods”, but for $195 for three days, I refuse to cheat! I do love the little Fact Sheet they include though which explains all the benefits of each ingredient. Wish me luck, I’ll be back with a full recap tomorrow!! Check out what I got for picking the stuff up at Bikram by the way… a pass for a $30, 30-day Bikram Yoga membership!
