HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Long time, no blog…I know, I know. If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter (you should), you will know that not only am I still freelancing hair and makeup, but I’ve also gotten a job at Sephora. When I’m not doing one, I’m doing the other, and when I’m doing neither, I’m sleeping. It’s been an adjustment, it’s been a while since I have steadily held down two jobs. I will continue to blog when I am able, because I enjoy it so.
Also if you follow me on either of those, you will know that Santa got me the best present ever…(I’m saying that now, but we shall see how amazing I think it is in a few days). The Breville Juice Fountain Plus is my new best friend, because today I have started a FIVE DAY JUICE CLEANSE. Have you seen the documentary by Joe Cross, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead? I’m doing that--- Five Days, only juice and water. No Food! For five days, I will be following his guided reboot plan found here. After work last night, I hit up Target and got everything on his shopping list and more. I plan on following his recipes and making a few of my own over the course of the next five days. (I also needed melatonin and deodorant…)
I had the bright idea to vlog it all, which was going well until I decided I didn’t want to put on makeup this morning. I have been microvlogging/blogging on my Instagram and will continue to do so.
Every morning, I start out with 16oz of hot lemon water and my breakfast juice. I hate lemon, but I’ll get over it. This morning I had the Sunrise Juice – 4 Carrots, 2 Oranges and 1 Beet. It was surprisingly delicious. I was afraid that my first juice I made would be disgusting and my immediate reaction would be “SCREW THIS!” The next juice wasn’t as savory, but it was tolerable. It is the Mean Green juice, here are the ingredients:This is when the pictures stopped. I ended up making mine and my mom’s juices for the remainder of the day. No one told me that juicing takes so much work! Make a juice, clean the juicer, make another juice…and continue that forever.
All in all, you drink 6 juices a day. I have two more left for Day 1, my dinner and dessert juice. Since I woke up so late today, I was a little behind.
So far—I’m feeling great! I feel very energized, even without my usual daily caffeine IV. I noticed that I do get that hungry feeling every now and then, but I think it’s more so in my head than anything else.
I can’t wait to see how I’m feeling tomorrow and for the rest of my cleanse.
