One of the items on my Resolution List is to pay more attention to the things I put into my body. Namely, eating more fruit in place of the unhealthy snacks at work AND staying hydrated. Usually, coffee is my morning staple followed by a diet coke with lunch. Oh yes, I have a bottle of water at my desk… and maybe I will take a sip or two but all and all my daily intake is at an ultimate low. SO, starting off the new year, I decided to go on a juice cleanse. It is a good way to reset yourself, and hopefully your habits too! In the past, I kinda winged the juice fasting. I read a book on it, bought a juicer, and just went for it: I lasted 3 days. The next year I tried again: 4.5 days. I still was not drinking enough water and I was so tried of the actual juicing and cleaning process that I was not making enough juice to last me the day.
This year I started over; I researched a couple of cleanses and decided on the Blue Print Cleanse. I went for the excavation: 6 bottles of mostly all green juices a day delivered to my “doorstep.” The first day, I could barely get through all of the juices. Not because they tasted bad but because 6 bottles of juice + Herbal Tea + water was A LOT to consume! Luckily all of the juices tasted great and I never felt hungry. Now I am on Day 6, drink 6!!! This week I get to slowly bring myself back on solid foods. How do I feel: Awesome. What did I learn: adding a little lemon into water is delicious. I have even started craving it. I also learned that there are many great herbal teas that can not only curb my daily coffee addiction, but become a lasting alternative. Now it is time to keep up the good lesson. Tomorrows Menu: Fruit!! ~ilisa
