The first day of this was daunting. I love food - hot, chewable meals. But I was wooed by the positive things I'd heard about The Blue Print Cleanse (and its benefits) so I jumped at the challenge of this 3-day cleanse.
My juices for the day:
1: Green Lemon
2: Pineapple/Apple/Mint – Is it bad that this one conjures up memories of mojitos?
3: Green Apple
4: Tart and Spicy Lemonade (water, lemon, cayenne, agave) - SO TASTY! Sweet at first with a little
kick at the end - I can see myself drinking this instead of soda as it completely cures my sweet tooth.
5: Green Parsley
6: Cashew Nut milk with Vanilla bean, Cinnamon, and a touch of Agave Nectar Such a great end to the day – I enjoy this one to the last sip. I rave about it as I’m drinking and my husband even wants a taste!
My idea of working out is hitting the rock gym or sweating it out in a kick boxing class. I've never taken a Yoga class but the folks at Exhale Spa had me intrigued with their class descriptions.
So I pulled on some stretchy pants and headed off to what I thought was going to be an easy workout. I was wrong. Yoga Level 1 had my body sweating and my muscles shaking just as much as any rock wall would. I felt clear, strong and balanced during and after the class. Exhale Spa - meet your new yoga recruit. By the end of the class I was exhausted and, I have to admit - as we exhaled with an "Ommmmm" the thought of "Ommmm so hungry" passed through my mind. However, the feeling subsided once I realized I had two more juices left for the day. When I went home I had one, another one hour later and I went to bed centered, slim and satisfied.
