Health | JJ Smith's, 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse | Prepping + Day 1
I've been eating like a complete heathen since the week of Thanksgiving, and just about fell off the fitness wagon. A close friend of mine just finished JJ Smith's 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse and her results were crazy good. She recommend that I give it a try to give me the boost I needed to get rid of the last bit of belly fat.
Prepping was easy. I followed the suggested grocery list located in Chapter 3 and went shopping for the first 5 days of the cleanse. I then prepped smoothies for the first 3 days - keeping Day 1's batch in the fridge and placed Day 2 and 3's in the freezer.
Day 1: I'm hungry. Haha, no but seriously - I feel fine. I had my breakfast smoothie pretty late in the day and ate a handful of raw cashews to subside my "need to chew" cravings (JJ Smith says that snacking on raw fruits/veggies/nuts is acceptable, but I want to keep it to a minimum). I'm also drinking the recommended 64 oz of water a day.
What I'm missing: Detox tea. I forgot to grab this from the store, and I don't want to take my sick kid back out for some darn tea. So I'm going to improvise with hot water and lemon until I can get to the store tomorrow morning before work. JJ Smith suggests using the Yogi detox tea which is perfect. I love Yogi and used the breastfeeding tea when I was nursing Jace, so I'm familiar with the brand all too well.
Support: I'll definitely be reaching out to my friend when I'm feeling like crap, haha. There's a Facebook group for those participating in the cleanse, so I'll check that out too.
Workout regimen: I've been running/training for next October's half marathon (not since my binge week though), but I intend on keeping that up throughout the cleanse. My guess is that it's not too smart to work out hardcore while I'm detoxing, so I'll be doing light yoga and pilates to "keep it tight".
Fitspiration: Beyonce. Duh.
Before and afters. You'll have to wait until I'm finished to see those. But check out the prepping pics below :)
