The Blue Print Cleanse - Day One Complete

I have so many thoughts swirling around right now, so I'll try to be clear and concise. I was hoping to get this done earlier in the day, but I didn't have time.

I know, the first things you want to know is - did I cheat? And the answer is: No! I definitely thought I'd be tempted, but I really (surprisingly) wasn't. Yea, I'm kind of hungry (we'll get to that in a minute), but it's important to me to succeed at this as intended. I don't want to have an asterisk next to the fact that I completed this three day cleanse. I know, the authors don't stress perfection, so I don't feel any pressure from the design. It's mostly for me.

I would say that I feel good. Not great, but not terrible either. I went for a long walk this evening, but I don't think I would feel up to a long run or a CrossFit class.

As for the hunger thing, well, it is what it is. I went out to run some errands today, but they took longer than planned (as usual), and let me tell you, by the time I got home, I was STARVING. I was ready to eat anything. The funny thing is I didn't want to eat just anything. I really just wanted my next juice. The good thing about the Renovation cleanse is that there are smoothies. Thank God! That smoothie really held me.

Overall, the juices are pretty good. I'm wishing I had a masticating juicer to get more out of the leafy greens because it seems like they're just passing through the juicer, but the green ones are definitely still green. All the juices are actually pretty sweet/tangy, even the green juices. I'm a person that tends to crave salty food, so I feel like I might need to make a more savory juice. Either that or I'm going to eat that pureed mushroom soup (drink the soup?). Well, it's only a few days, I'm pretty sure I can make it.

Also, I wish I had know that you have to peel bananas before freezing them. That was a gross mess that I didn't plan on dealing with.

  1. Good for you Margot! I've been doing my "Breakfast Smoothie of Champions" every day since May and love it! Use a blender so that I get all of the fruit & vegetable goodness. Try it (can delete yogurt for now). Think juicing / smoothies is a smart addition to your regular diet!
