Juice Cleanse: Day 1

Today I woke up earlier than usual so that I would have time to make some juice- not just for breakfast but for lunch too. I’ll be having more juice for dinner, but that I can make later on.

I was drinking my breakfast juice (which looked bright green) from a glass jar on the subway platform. Somebody commented about how delicious it looked and said I must feel “like a million bucks” drinking that. Yes, as a matter of fact, I do.


Apparently, juicing is quite the thing in NYC.

Before trying this out, I decided to do some research on exactly how to do a juice cleanse properly:

How to Do a 3-Day Juice Cleanse

I also looked into the other side of the argument for juice cleanses:
Why Juice Cleanses Don’t Deliver
Do Juice Cleanses Work?

My juice cleanse lasted until 5pm when I broke down and made a hot chocolate at work. Then I had leftover lasagna that Gavin made when I got home.

There is probably a reason you’re not supposed to do physical activity during a cleanse. I, on the other hand, went to Ashtanga yoga class; for the first time in several months. It was brutal.

My juice cleanse has officially ended. I may pick it back up when the weather’s warmer. We’ll see.
