BlueprintCleanse Day One
I woke up around 8 o’clock this morning and was faced with a dilemma. Should I drink the first drink BEFORE yoga or AFTER yoga at 9:30? Since I don’t ever eat until after class, I opted for after. No problems at this point with lack of caffeine.
When Last Guy looked in the fridge last night, he joked that Bottle No. 1 looks like something from the bottom of our aquarium. He actually tasted it tonight and commented with a sour face that it was a good thing I like “that sort of thing”! But fortunately, the green juice – which they say is the whole point of the cleanse – is the best for you. Here’s what’s in it: Romaine, celery, cucumber, apple, spinach, kale, parsley and lemon. I got a text from one of my girlfriends who is also doing the cleanse after our yoga class saying that it was like drinking your salad! But so far so good.
I had a few errands to run, so I packaged up another juice in the cute little cold bag with some freezer packs that they give you and went off into the city. Basically, I was OK until the need to, shall we say, get rid of all that liquid! EVERY FIVE MINUTES! Thank goodness I know where a lot of good restrooms are in the city!
Anyway, the other juices were REALLY good. The second one is pineapple, apple and mint. Then another green juice followed by a spicy lemonade. Both these drinks were really yummy. Then another green juice. I’m having trouble finishing this one because I’m FULL! Enough already! The last drink is a cashew nut. I’m looking forward to that one. Everyone raves about it.
Tonight, while walking Rosie with my two girlfriends who are also cleansing, and their dog, we walked across a street where we clearly had the signal. Some asshole in his giant SUV started to turn and almost ran us down. We all screamed at him and I even gave him the finger as I yelled, “Don’t fuck with us, buddy! We’re fasting!” Needless to say, I’m feeling a little wanky right now!
Actually, I was fine until around 7 tonight when I really hit the wall. Even the dog food tonight smelled strangely appetizing! I’ve got a tiny headache, but nothing too bad. Thank goodness Last Guy took himself out to dinner. He’s being SO supportive of this! It’s really not like I need to lose weight or anything. But I know he’s curious to see how this will effect me! Right now, I’m just feeling kind of bitchy and want to go to sleep! But I can’t. I have to drink one more drink and wait a little while to go to bed.
Tomorrow I’m in the recording studio finishing my CD! I’m excited. Let’s just hope I’m feeling a little bit more like myself on DAY TWO!
