a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

Good times . . .

How was your weekend?  We enjoyed ours .... equal parts "to-do-list" and family fun time!  Want to hear my best news?  My grandma and great auntie Janet finally made it over from Scotland (after a year of waiting!! long story) and I could not be happier!  They are two of the most genuine, wise, funny-as-hell, ladies I have ever met.  The girls absolutely love their great grandma and we plan on spending AS MUCH time with them as we can over the next month, so you will see pic's of them popping up here and their.

I also finished my 4-day cleanse (BPC) and while I had some tough moments (like making mac-n-cheese for the girls dinner and Mr. Hotpants making "tater-tots") all in all it was not that hard.  The service of BPC is amazing, the packaging of all the juices was awesome and showed right up on my doorstep!  I could not be easier; they even give you a cute little cooler bag to take with you, perfect for packing juices 1-4 for work!  The skinny version:

Day 1 - Juices tasted great (thank goodness!) and I didn't feel hungry at all, I actually almost couldn't drink all 6 juices! It is quite a lot of juice and liquids because you are also doing herbal teas and water in between.  I did sleep like crap this first night but that could be a combination of 3yr-old-in-bed-night-terrors and some wonderful night sweats! (the joys of being a woman) 

Day 2 - I woke up with the worst headache so I had to down a cup of coffee, which helped, and which you are allowed (I might have had a little more than is allowed). You can "cheat" with: cup of coffee, cup of vegetable broth, 1/4 avocado, celery & cucumber spears!  I must admit this was a hard day and I did feel hungry but more "empty" than anything else and not a lot of energy.  The Cashew milk (#6 juice that you do 2hrs before bed) makes the day seem worth it though . . . . water, cashews, agave nectar, vanilla, cinnamon . . . yum! 

Day 3 - Woke up feeling good and by 7:30am I felt wonderful.  Had a great amount of energy this day and no food cravings at all!

Day 4 - This fell on Saturday and I thought it would be harder being at home but surprisingly I still did not have a huge urge to eat so it was not bad.  I took a zumba class in the morning and had the energy to do it!  I felt great afterwards too.  I weighed myself at the end of the day and I had lost a total of 5.5lbs since I started.  I know it is pretty much all water weight and I don't feel like I have lost weight, but I do feel less bloated and puffy if that makes sense.

My conclusion - was it worth the $300? (my Christmas present!) --- I definitely think you could do it cheaper and possibly on your own BUT since it is a bit physically & mentally challenging at times I believe having the juices ready and prepared makes it easy not to give up . . . I think if I were making all the juices I would have just petered out on Day 2 because I would not have had the brain power or energy to stand and make a bunch of juice! 

So for me it was a luxury and I enjoyed it.  I think we deserve to treat our bodies to a few days rest from digesting tough proteins and dense meats, breads and pastas.  I think we deserve to do a cleanse like this 1-2/yr.   What do you ladies think? Have you ever done a cleanse? How else do you "thank" your body?
