Day 2 - Ups and Downs
Starting the Blueprint level 2 Foundation Cleanse yesterday was a little rougher than I thought. I ended up not being able to drink Green juice bottle number 5 and fell asleep early. I woke up sort of hungry, sort of sick feeling, nauseous and my head felt very very heavy. I grabbed the cashew milk and was able to drink about a third of it and then went back to bed. Unfortunately I woke up at about 1:30am Starving! So I warmed up some low-sodium broth (one of the allowed cheater foods) and added some organic greens to it and a tablespoon of Nutritional Yeast. I was just craving protein more than anything. I didn't sleep well so I was not looking forward to day 2.
This morning since I was now on Level 3 Excavation, I had two Green juices in a row. It took me about 4 fours to drink half of the first bottle, I kept drinking water and it just did not smell or taste good. I ended up blending the rest of bottle one and bottle two with ice and that helped a little. After that I went back to work, went on a walk and wasn't hungry. I realized I skipped Green juice bottle three and went to the Spicy Lemonade which went down super easily. Yum! So after my last session at the studio I was feeling hungry but afraid of Green juice. The strangest thing happened though. I opened my juice and tasted it and it seemed very different. I wanted to drink it, it felt good like my body needed it.
I kept busy and did some housework and sipped that green juice straight down! By the time my husband came home (late from work!) I was ready to enjoy my cashew milk while he ate regular food :) I got almost all of it down but not quite. I feel much more in tune with my internal hunger cues, and I know you are supposed to drink everything in order everyday but 5 3/4 out of 6 bottles was good for me yesterday. I went to bed and fell asleep right away, much better night than the first!
It's nice to finish the day on a high note - it helps to think about doing it again the next day. Check in soon for day 3!
