Did I mention tired? Since the new year started, I’ve been trying to be more mindful of input vs. output in my life, and the scales have recently tipped towards too much input again. I’ve had too many nights out on top of stressful days at work, resulting in zero downtime. I love my friends, and you can’t reschedule birthdays, the first day their new bar opens or their black tie party in a fancy suite at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. And that’s just in the past three days … this is really my life.
Last week I hit a wall and stopped wanting to talk to people, to answer text messages or to answer the phone. Here’s where the Blueprint Cleanse comes in. Luckily, I was smart enough to schedule delivery of their “Excavation Cleanse” as soon as I got back from SXSW.
I learned about Blueprint Cleanse back in December 2006 during my first week in New York. My friend Todd, who is consistently in amazing shape, was raving about it. He said he did it once or twice a year. I checked out the website and while it looked interesting, it was too expensive for me at the time since I moved here without having a job lined up.
Fast forward and I need that cleanse. I need it a lot. I need to detox from all the food and booze and, even more than that, I need an excuse to say no to every single invitation I receive this week. And since I can’t eat or drink booze (or even caffeine), this cleanse suits me nicely.
Want to see what I’m going to be drinking for the next 3 days? Watch my YouTube video below (it’s a little over 5 minutes, just short enough to squeeze into your lunch break).
I’ll have six different juice blends for three days and hopefully emerge lighter (emotionally speaking), healthier and a bit less wound up. Wish me luck.
