Last week I decided to do something silly.
I decided to do a cleanse.
I know, I know.
But – I did it.
I knew The Cowboy and I were going to indulge while we were in Kelowna for the weekend, so I planned to do my cleanse Wed-Fri and minimize the impact on my weekend (although I still fully intended to eat healthfully over the weekend).
The company I chose was BluePrintCleanse as the price was reasonable and they ship to Canada.
The juices were made on Tuesday and shipped overnight to arrive on Wednesday.
This meant I waited (and waited and waited) to receive my juice on Wednesday.
I kicked my morning off with a Detox Tea and waited some more.
At 10am my FedEx tracking alert told me my package had arrived (HOORAY!) however when I picked up my package from the mail room all they had were my teas (more on this later). I was told FedEx normally delivers to the mailroom in the afternoon. *sigh*
By then it was nearly 11am and I sure did need to get some food in mah belleh, so I went to Jugo Juice and ordered myself a Tropical Popeye: a fruit smoothie with spinach. I figured it was semi-close to the green juice and it did a good job of holding me over.
At 1pm I still hadn’t received notice from the mailroom, so I popped open my tea package and made myself a mug of Organic Persian Apple green tea.
They recommend drinking 1 juice every 2 hours and 12oz of water in between, but since I didn’t get my juices until well into the afternoon – and I didn’t feel like chugging 1 juice every hour, I set my evening up as follows:
2pm – Green Juice
4pm – PAM (pineapple, apple, mint)
6pm – 8pm running hills
8pm – Spicy Lemonade
9pm – CAB (carrot, apple, beet)
10pm – Cashew Milk
No consumed: green juice #3.
For kicks I also decided to weigh myself at the beginning of the cleanse and see what (if any) drinking juice for 3 days had on my weight.
Starting weight day 1: 145.1
Feeling: frickin’ excited to get mah juice. Finally. Jeepers!
