Blue Print Cleanse: Day One

photo 2(76)

6:45am- Drink warm water to “get things moving”. Oh, HEY THERE! Aren’t you glad you stopped over here this morning to hear about bowel movements? This morning I began a 3 day juice cleanse by Blue Print Cleanse. I chose the Renovation cleanse which is a beginner cleanse. Although, I TRY to eat healthy and am used to drinking green juices occasionally, I though the beginner cleanse would be less harsh than the others. Especially since I will be detoxing from an extraordinary amount of swiss cake rolls. I am going to try to keep track of my juice throughout the day with time stamped updates so you can see how I am doing/feeling and whether  my hunger pangs/need to eat solid foods have violently sent me into a downward spiral in which I have had to isolate myself from anyone in danger of having their food stolen from me.

8:15-8:45am- Drink Juice 1 (Green Juice) which is made up of romaine, celery, cucumber, apple, spinach, kale, parsley, and lemon. Since I sometimes make juices with greens in the morning, this green juice isn’t hard for me to get used to. I actually really enjoy it which makes me happy since I have read that this was the hardest juice for some people to drink. SUCCESS!

9:00am- Still doing well. I don’t feel hungry or weird yet but I have only been up for 3 hours…. Let’s see how long this lasts.

11:15-11:45am- Time for Juice 2 (P.A.M)- Made up of pineapple, apple, and mint. This one is delish! I am still doing OK. I am not hungry yet but I have peed 478947938274897329 times.

1:30pm- Besides the fact that I am embarrassingly peeing for 10 minutes nonstop, all is good in the juice cleansing world.

2:00pm- Juice 3 (Green juice again)- Still doing well but I think my brain is starting to realize that I haven’t chewed anything all day and is sad.

Aren't you glad you get to see my face twice in one post?

4:00pm- Juice 4 (Spicy Lemonade)- Comprised of lemon, agave nectar, and cayenne. I am about to leave work and am surprisingly still feeling great. I am, however, heading to the gym and am not sure how my diet today will affect my workout. My energy doesn’t seem any different than usual so that is a plus.

5:30pm- CrossFit- Although my energy level didn’t seem any different than every other night at CrossFit, I definitely felt weaker. Working on overhead strength which I believe to be one of my stronger points in CrossFit, I wasn’t hitting numbers that I have seen before. It could be the cleanse or that I am just super sore this week. Oh well, I killed the met con of clean and jerks and burpees!

Can you find Juice #5?

6:30pm- Juice 5 (or C.A.B)- Comprised of apples, carrots, beets, lemon and ginger, it was also vert tasty and gave me a red juice mustache! So attractive. While drinking my juice and hanging out at CrossFit (i refused to go home to be tempted by food), Alyssa and I were commenting on our juice cleanse….

7:30pm- Craving solid foods! Not even junk food, give me plain chicken and broccoli and I’d be happy. Crazy thought. Maybe this is what the cleanse will do for me: I will crave GOOD food.

8:30pm- Juice 6 (Cashew Milk)- Sweetened with cinnamon, agave nectar, and vanilla. This was dessert in liquid form. It was thicker so it made me feel full and I was thoroughly enjoying the chunky remnants of cashews in the bottle. Anything counts as solid right now!

Bedtime- Now I need to get to bed before I try to eat anything or before I realize how hungry I really am. Day 1 wasn’t so bad except for craving solid foods and peeing 1 million times. 9 to be exact but who’s counting?

Stay tuned tomorrow night for Blue Print Cleanse- Day Two!

    Are you supplementing the cleanse with any protein after the CF workouts? I don’t think I could do a cleanse and do CF! I would pass out

      Fiona- I am not and I am definitely paying for it. I finally decided that I probably shouldnt be working out on this and am taking off today. I have also realized that my lack of protein has kept me sore for days!
