So I went to Whole Foods today to pick up some vitamins. What did I leave with? 18 bottles of juice. Kinda the same thing… right? Let me tell you how it happened. I was minding my business, trying all the free samples around the store when I walked by the juice aisle. That’s where I saw it… the little yellow sign. Blueprint Juices were on sale. Praise be to Gwyneth Paltrow.
I’ve been wanting to try a juice cleanse for a while but they are so expensive and trying to schedule 3 socially acceptable days to avoid food is very difficult! However, today the stars aligned. I’m fresh off of 10 days of vacation where I enjoyed eating just a little too much, I’ve got nothing to do besides go to barre classes and run some errands, and my next social engagement (a pool party with former classmates) is Saturday. Feeling like a fatty + 3 free days + wearing a bikini in front of more than my boyfriend + SALE + starting a new job on Monday and needing a physical reset= this (and a lot of concerned looks from elderly women in Whole Foods.) I swear I love food!!
So I realize I’m not in the prime position to start cleansing tomorrow. I didn’t spend all day yesterday eating salads and weaning my body off of sugars/carbs/solids in general. Today I’m trying to eat mostly veggies to make up for it. I’ve had avocado toast and some sweet potato fries as a snack. My last meal? Hummus and veggies.
Any tips for a cleansing virgin?
