If this tagline were from, say a champagne company, my day would be off to a really great start. Instead, it’s from BluePrint Cleanse and today I started three days of their level one juice cleanse.
I have no idea what came over me to suggest doing this with my friend Talia. But she agreed and I ordered our cleanses and now we have to start. Thankfully she’s done it a few times and is a little more realistic than me. I suggested five days at level two; she politely suggested I might want to start with trying three days of level one.
Here’s my food for the next three days.
As I sit here, I’m sipping on the first juice of the day “Green Juice”. It’s pretty disgusting, but Talia warned me. She says number two is more of a treat so I’ll enjoy that when I get to the office. Provided I can choke down this first one before I leave. Unfortunately Green Juice is twice a day so I still have five more to go.
I’m not really sure what I’m hoping to get out of this. My eating has been pretty good lately (until this weekend’s paint-tastrophy in which we ate all take out and I prepared nothing for this week). I think I just wanted to try something new. I’m a sucker for anything lasting a set number of days because that immediately translates into challenge in my mind. I have decided to follow it up with 7 days of Whole30 style eating. A good ten days of squeaky clean eating (minus all the agave they put in these juices – seriously?!) can only be a good thing.
Wish me luck! 17.75 bottles of juice to go.
