I turned 24 this past Wednesday.
We went to Momofuku's Noodle Bar and had some amazing pork & brisket buns with some yummy japanese ramen!
My friend is a teacher and she asked her kids to write me birthday letters filled with advices. So adorable. I love it.
For desert we went to a Japanese tea house, Cha-An. There black sesame creme brulee.. SO GOOD. No photo.. I devoured mine. There teas were just as excellent. So smooth and aromatic
Over the weekend my friends and I went to Smorgasburg | Brooklyn Flea Food Festival. We kinda went a little late but luckily we missed all the lines :) Then did a little eye shopping, popped over to Beacon's Closet and was gifted this little top. 
This past week was awesome. I am truly blessed with great family and friends.

and this is how you break it
yea I totally felt guilty eating this. But our office ordered lunch for us and I couldn't refuse. To make it better I layered lots of greens..and picked the eggplant slice rather than the meaty one. :) The cleanse was good but I don't feel any better or worse. Would I do it again? Yep. Next time I want to try for 5 days. Go big or go home right?

Things I have noticed while on the cleanse:
  • I was cold.. in the office the temperature is controlled most days I usually just wear my sweater but during the cleanse I was freezing. My fingers were so cold it was hard to type. :x
  • I normally get sleepy around 2pm but during the cleanse I didn't feel groggy, bloated or sleepy. Today of course at 2pm I started to get sleepy and closed my eyes for 5 minutes ;) 
  • I broke out >:( I don't know if it was stress related or the cleanse (maybe both) but work this week was crazy. Stayed late everyday and just had to meet a lot of deadlines, make changes and be superman fast. Felt a lot of anxiety and stress.. baahh thank God its Friday. 
  • After eating the pizza I noticed how thirsty I was throughout the day.. and I don't think it settled too well. 
This cleanse taught me to take care of my body. Not only exercising but what I put in my body. I love indulging but I need to cut out a lot of that junk out. I can see how it affects my system.

I am almost done. I don't feel hungry..I just feel empty. My co-workers have been asking me "Do you feel cleansed?" um.. not really but I feel lighter. I've been browsing on food blogs and saving recipes. I know I'm torturing myself but I am really looking forward to eating. I've read that I should be careful post-cleanse. They recommend eating only fruits the first day, veggies the second and slowly incorporate legumes and..finally meat. I'm just going to play it by ear and see what happens. I want to change my lifestyle and eat more healthy.

cheers to the last day!

Yesterday my co-workers and I went on a cleanse. We ordered from Blue Print. I am currently on day 2 out of 3 and so far I feel fine. I thought I would be hungry all day and very cranky but surprisingly these juices are pretty filling and my energy level hasn't decreased. I just miss chewing on food.. but no cravings yet. My favorite jucie is P.A.M - Pineapple, Apple, and Mint. So refreshing. My least favorite is the green juice. I hate celery. And juice #6 - Cashew Milk. so. good. It's definitely worth the wait.
