juice cleanse, day 2

good morning to all you lovely people who ate breakfast this morning. i hope you had super sugary, super chocolatey donut for me. we are on day 2 of this juice cleanse/detox/whatever we are doing...its only for 2 days so the end is near!!

im usually game to try just about anything, even more so when it challenges me physically. this juice idea is something the three of us had been thinking of doing and its definitely/infinitely easier when coworkers are in cahoots with you.

what i am noticing the most on this cleanse is just how much i miss the act of chewing. i dont feel hungry, per se, just light. ive been munching on celery during the day and at dinner and chewing a few pieces of gum to keep my mouth busy but thats it.

i skipped coffee yesterday COMPLETELY. that wasnt cool. i had tea instead which really sucked...no idea why, but i hate the taste of hot tea. today i am drinking coffee. i am going to drink coffee going forward so i figure it was kinda cool to skip a day but its fine to start again. the world thanks me :)

i noticed i felt a bit loopy yesterday. we all had that feeling of being high...were told thats normal. makes sense...technically were hungry so our bodies are reacting. each day gives us 5 juices....i wish i liked them all, but i just dont. yesterday i drank about 3 of them (maybe slightly less). I could only stomach about 1/5 of the beet juice flavored one and none of the kale one. i drank about 2/3 of the blueberry one but once it started to come to room temp i was over it. i drank 2 of the orange juices yesterday...AMAZING!

i started today with my last orange juice one...orange, grapefruit and lemongrass. DELICIOUS! my second juice today is a mix of swss chard, kale, dandelion, celery, cucumber, etc...its SUPER GREEN! i dont love it but i do know its good for me. and quite frankly, i need some sustenance so ill down it :) cant lie though, im downing some more coffee later to fuel run club tonight!

thats it for now...the juice recap will come tomorrow!

march madness

i have come to find the madness of life happens far beyond march. that said, when we really think about it, lifes madness is a gift, right? i mean that in a "take the good with the bad" kind of way, not so much that i love the madness.

i live in madness. all the time. i love so many things about NYC - but sometimes, those same things are the things that sending me screaming into my pillow or heading out of town at a moments notice.

take this past weekend. i had had enough of NYC - sleepless nights, work stress and a nagging running injury. it was one of my best childhood friends birthdays, so i hopped on a train for a 3.5 hour ride to newport for an incredible night filled with endless prosecco and bread, birthday cake and wonderful memories and laughs, i returned to NYC 24 hours later (after a 5 hour wi-fi less ride) a better person. sure, the ride back was brutal - but the sore abs and messy hair reminded me that it was exactly what life is about.

madness, baby. may it las…

break a sweat - even when youd rather do ANYTHING but.

there is only one way to begin the difficult journey of the holiday sugar detox: break a sweat. 

miraculously i didnt miss a day over the holidays to break a sweat -- but that really just means i got up extra early or ran when people were napping (i.e. full and feeling gross) so not all of my holiday miles or squats were pretty. or felt particular good.

BUT, i laced up and got out there -- or followed along to a dailyburn workout. i kept telling myself i could slow down or take it easier, but shit, im doing a workout.

so basically, what they say is true. no matter how slow you go, youre still lapping everyone on the couch. go get in a good sweat, then reward yourself with some couch time :)
