A couple of weeks ago, I was out to lunch with my good friend Colleen from Classy Mommy. We were talking about our eating habits and she mentioned that she’s been considering doing one of those juice cleanses. She had me at cleanse. I’ve been wanting to do one myself for awhile – just out of sheer curiosity and a need to be healthier and get rid of some of the nasty toxins in my body for a few days.
After chatting, we settled on the BluePrintCleanse. It’s pricey but after reading the reviews, it seemed legit and like the kind of thing I was looking for. Plus, it’s no maintenance on my part – I make nothing.
I’ll be doing the 3-day Cleanse and all of my juices should arrive via overnight FedEx tomorrow morning. I’m excited and nervous. Probably a little more nervous since it’s tomorrow and I’m having that “holy crap, what did I get myself into feeling.” But it’ll be worth it. And I’m not one of those die-hards who will feel horribly sick doing this. If I feel sick, I’ll stop. Or I’ll “cheat” with one of their “allowed” foods like cucumbers or avocados.
You guys will probably get sick of hearing me talk about it but I’ll post updates on how it’s going. Ever since I decided to do this, it’s been a big topic of conversation. Everyone seems very curious and everyone apparently thinks about doing one at one time or another.
I’ll be doing the Renovation Cleanse. While I’m no cheeseburger eater (I think I’m actually moderately healthy in my food choices compared to the average American), I read this was considered the “beginner” stage and thought I’d start here.
I predict I’ll be whining for my coffee by 10 am. Stay tuned.
