I woke up and felt the best I had all week. I had no hunger or weakness, my body just felt normal and use to the cleanse by now.
Then I got to work, and my boss was so sweet and had brought everyone tea and pastries, in honor of the Royal Wedding. Unfortunately, it was pure torture for me. I love croissants (see my original croissant, almond croissant, and pretzel croissant rants here). So I had a small cup of green tea to join into the fun. A few hours later the office decided to order pizza. Now I was really annoyed, since when do we order pizza? It happens likes 3 times a year - literally. It just wasn't my day.
Overall, I am glad I did the BluePrint Cleanse. BluePrint made the whole process really easy. In NYC you can pick up your juices from various locations, making it cheaper and pretty convenient. A 3-Day box of juice is heavy though! Especially after 5 flights of stairs. Do I feel really different? It is hard to tell right now. I do think I had more clarity, clearer eyes and skin, and just felt more comfortable. No more stomach aches from bad food choices. I think the real changes will be more subtle and long term, a bit of a lifestyle change. It is so interesting what we and when we eat. I noticed how much I would have snacked on, just to snack, and not because I was hungry. Since I love food so much, I know that I could never fully give up all my favorite bad food, but I could see myself incorporating juice throughout my week. It is amazing how much energy I felt from just drinking nutrients. I guess it's not rocket science though. A juice packed with tons of greens, blended up, allowing the smallest amount of digestion possible, allows the body to save that energy for something else. Okay, enough of my rambling, I have pineapple waiting for me :)
