Good Monday morning, lovelies! And welcome to a brand new week! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Mine consisted of a lot of rest and a lot of prep work for the juice cleanse that I'm starting today. I'm so looking forward to starting this. I really need to detox and to start taking better care of myself. And I'm hoping this is a good jump start. I know other people who have done these before and have had good results so here's hoping it works for me :)

Have any of you ever tried a juice cleanse before? If so, any tips for a first timer?

Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day! xoxo

Colores said...

Good luck sweetie, thanks for your comments I have in mind something similar. I want to try a detox week and this period seems to be the best one!I ´ve heard about some friends who tried this kind of detox and they fully reccommended it, at the same time, some relax is needed, not to overload your body with extra work! kisses

Debby said...

Oh, Dawn, I'm starving for you already.... no, I don't think I could do a juice cleanse, (although I am sure my body could use one). I just get too cranky when I don't eat. Happy Monday. xo

Hi Dawn,

Good luck with the detox and healthy regimen.
I find having a glass of hot water when I get up is always a good thing.

Have a wonderful week
Hugs

style'n said...

wow no I have never done this but sounds like a good think to do! Funny though b/c I was just reading Marie Claire and there was an article about the celebrities nutritionists and their strategies, daily calories, diets etc... Interesting read! Let us know how it goes.

Things That Sparkle said...

Good luck! I really should do one of these but I like eating way too much, it sounds painful!

Tanvi said...

I have indeed tried this cleanse. Not once but twice. I think the key for me was to wake up early and sleep on time ... 'coz then there is no time in between to feel hungry ... The juice keep you pretty much filled throughout the day!

I have always wanted to try a juice cleanse but never done it - though have heard wonderful things. I love those beautiful yoga images. My current personal project is my headstand - challenging for me.
Much love,
B

Sara Mueller said...

The hubby has done the juice cleanse! Not fun for me since I love to cook and enjoy dinner with him over a glass of wine. happy monday!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

I so wish I had some stellar advice for you, but I'm so terrible at sticking with anything related to diet/nutrition...I'm going to make sure I don't live to a ripe ol' age (c: Not really, but good luck on the cleanse, I'm cheering for you! Happy Monday, dearie!

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

no - but one of my besties is a ALL natural person - she is giving me a plan to do an entire body cleanse - i'll pass it along once i get it from her - kinda' scared about it all

classiq said...

I haven't tried a juice cleanse, but fresh juices are part of my daily diet, as I try to eat as heathy as possible. I'm sure you will feel great afterwards. Hope your week is off to a great start, Dawn. xoxo Ada

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

I have never tried a juice cleanse, but am anxious to see how you're feeling afterward! Hope you had a lovely weekend, Dawn ... and best of luck in the healthy endeavor .. I always feel so much better when I'm eating lighter and healthier! Kisses ~ Sandy xoxo

Good morning, Dawn! Good for you for taking good care of yourself. I've not down a juice cleanse but saw a green drink recipe last week that I think I will try as a supplement or meal replacement. It is suppossed to have 100% of the RDA!

Good luck...the first day of any big change is the hardest.

I've done a lemon/maple syrup cure for 10 days 3 times in my life. It worked wonders for my hubby, but i felt tired and dizzy sometimes. It tastes good though: 2 EL lemon juice, 2 EL maple syrup, a dash of cayenne and 250 ml water! Good luck with your juice cleanse - and hugs for the day!

Amanda Hill said...

Never done one..bit if you look and feel like that girl I am all over it :)

Alexa said...

I don't do juice cleanse but I have freshly made juices at leat twice a week. The best detox is early to bed and early to rise in my humble opinion. Here's hoping it brings the results you desire. XX

A juice cleanse? You go! I do not have that much discipline. But you will do amazing. Love love love every photo and your layout.

BigAppleNosh said...

I tried this cleanse before! Other than the green juice (2/day!) it's not too bad!

this free bird said...

Good luck with your cleanse Dawn. I've not done a juice one specifically, but did do a 90 day alternative cleanse that really revitalized my health even though at the time seemed otherwise :)

Your week sounds perfect to me. Esp with all the rest involved, jealous. By the way, I love the photos as usual, the head stand photo is pretty cute. :)

Heather Pranitis said...

I have not done a juice cleanse so I can't give much help with that. I am also in the process of starting a new regime with Shakeology tomorrow and the workout program. In addition, to my cardio and weights program. I'll be thinkking good thoughts for you. Remeber for any "new" routine it takes 21 days to stick. I think your juice cleanse will be a perfect way to start the "new" regime. I'll be thinking good thoughts for you. PS- thanks for stopping by my blog (I couldn't respond to your comment). Anyhow, I wanted to let you know that Bridesmaids was hysterical. My Mom and I laughed so much. And let me know tell you it was "spot-on" and that's what made it even funnier. Anyone that has been in a wedding party needs to see it. I loved it and I'm going to drag my other half to see it to - he'll love the laughs! *Cheers* to us both on our new regimes.

Ann said...

Good luck!

I've tried drinking 5-6 glasses of apple juice a day for a week before to soften some gallstones and then on the 7th day I had to drink lemon and olive oil...did wonders for my body.

Sabine said...

I cannot wait to hear how the juice cleanse works for you, Dawn. I never tried anything like this... I need my food (especially chocolate. Shush!) xoxo

Christel @ Captivated by image said...

That's so good of you Dawn! I hope it works out well, very curious how it works on you! Never done it before and also don't know if I ever could since my stomach is so used to eating something every couple of hours. I do try to drink a fresh made juice every day! Good luck:)

lapetal said...

Firstly, those pictures are just stunning,. and fresh. alessandra is so gorgeous!!

Well done aswell! I would love to hear how it goes, I am in need of a detox

Bromeliad said...

Wow. Your images make a juice cleanse almost sound appealing. Almost.

diana shae decor said...

Yes - last summer. It was hard but worth it. Not gonna lie - I ended it with a burger and huge gelato (not recommended!) Need to do it again.....
