I’M STAAAAAAAAAAAAAARVING!!!! Stan D’ieu!
Day 3 on the BluePrintCleanse, and it’s just as tough as Day1. I woke up this morning feeling okay. Wasn’t too hungry. Head was clear. Felt skinny. Was confident I could attack the day. Went to the Hammam and took a steam. Then I went to the studio for some yoga. Then I got a massage to get all those leftover toxins out of my system. I couldn’t get passed the hunger so I ended my morning on the dock for a little meditation before my afternoon juices.
I have to tell you. Not eating for 3 days is not easy. It’s 6pm, and I’m back to my beet juice #5. Only one more juice to go. According to the BPC site, tomorrow, when I finally am able to eat, I can only indulge in vegetables, fruits and vegetable broth! Really? I was hoping to fly out to LA for an In ‘n Out Double Double.
At the end of the day, I do feel better. I’m leaner. I feel more empowered. I feel hungry. (Sorry. Can’t seem to get over that one.) I am overall a better Stan, I hope.
And you know what? I’d go hungry for 3 more days just to stay here at The Standard, Miami. That’s a dream.
THANK YOU, BPC!

The BluePrintCleanse is NOT easy my gorgeous Stan D’etoxers, but it’s pretty amazing.
Yesterday, was Day 1 and the only good thing about it was that it ended in juice #6, a Cashew Milk shake with cinnamon and vanilla. Dessert! But I was tired, irritable, cranky and HUNGRY. You’re never not hungry.
This morning I woke up, and I felt a little better. I had slept the whole night through, and I was feeling a bit energetic. It’s not really that you’re STARVING, but it’s just such a habit to eat all day. NOT eating all day is what’s hard.
As you can see from the photo above, I’m currently on juice #5…apple, carrot, beet, lemon and ginger. If it wasn’t for this 78 degree weather here at The Standard, Miami, I’d be losing it! Speaking of which, have you entered to win your own detox weekend yet? You only have one day left!
I think I’m starting to lose it and enter a state of delirium. Yes. You’ve guessed it. Like most people who use the New Year as an excuse to make up for a year full of debauchery and toxic behavior, I am undergoing the BluePrintCleanse to help reverse the damage.
As you might remember from one of my previous postings last month, The Standard, Miami is offering the BluePrintCleanse package, so I figured I’d go down and detox. (Don’t forget you have two days left to enter and win your own detox getaway!)
This morning, I started off with Juice 1. Romaine, celery, cucumber, green apple, spinach, kale, parsley and lemon. Sounded unappetizing, but it was actually really good. But then I got hungry. So I drank some hot water with lemon. I was still hungry. So I went and got Juice 2…filtered water, pineapple, apple and mint. This is juice is AMAZING! But I’m still hungry.
What I really want to do is go eat a steak frites with mayonnaise, but I can’t…or can I? Not sure how much longer I can take this, but Stan never fails at anything he does, so I keep on keeping on!
I wonder if there is a burger juice up next? Stay tuned…
