Lots of playing & Pressed Juicery cleanse.

I am exhausted. Yesterday was quite the day. It was absolutely beautiful here in Michigan, so the girls and I decided to spend the whole day outside.


I cannot tell you the last time when I spent a significant amount of time outside literally playing. We packed up a picnic and took it to the park, played on the playground, fed the ducks, went home and played on the tree house, and literally continued to play for 3 more hours.


I felt old. I kid you not, there was one point where I was on the ground and went to stand up and my knee cramped up and I had to grasp the wall to get up. Like, really? Am I 90?


Then I went to the gym to train and proceeded to run for 45 minutes and for some ridiculous reason decide to do sprint training. Once again, why? I think because I knew I was starting the Pressed Juicery cleanse today and wanted to sweat it out one time before I really have to tone my workouts down for the next 3 days.


I am so excited to get my shipment of juices this morning! The cleanse I am doing is the summer 3-day cleanse. These are the juices I will be drinking every day:

  • Greens 2: kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon
  • Citrus 2: pineapple, apple, lemon, mint
  • Roots 3: beet, apple, lemon, ginger
  • Citrus 4: cucumber, pineapple, lemon, coconut h2o, aloe vera
  • Greens 3: kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon, ginger
  • Vanilla almond: almonds, dates, vanilla bean, sea salt, filtered water
  • aloe vera h2o
  • chlorophyll h2o

I honestly think the hardest part for me will be not drinking alcohol :x Is that pathetic? I think so, but hopefully this cleanse will make me not want wine so much every night. I am excited to prove to myself that I actually have a little bit of self-control, which I’m sure will go a long way beyond the actual cleanse itself. I will be doing a full recap as the days go on, but for now I want to talk about So You Think You Can Dance.

Okay, I know Alex watches it, but for anyone out there who isn’t watching this show, WHY THE HELL NOT?! This show seriously makes my summer so much better. I think I cry at every episode, but that’s okay. I am just so happy for all those young people that actually have talent and are working their asses off. The end.

I have nothing else to say except I gotta go drink my juice and hopefully not turn into a raging lunatic in the next 3 days. Wish me luck!


What’s your favorite summer TV show?


  1. I am so not a TV person, especially in the summer! I’d rather be outside running or walking or swimming or sitting on a patio drinking wine ;) I can’t wait to hear about the juices! I think the hardest part for me was not giving up alcohol but giving up eating food – so hard! Good luck :)

      Oh my goodness, you are lucky. TV is my jam. But so is wine and sitting on patios. If only I had a tv outside…today is going GREAT so far. Hopefully the rest of the cleanse continues this way!

  2. Favorite summer TV show? That’s easy.. Pretty Little Liars!

    Jealous about all your playing.. what a fabulous way to spend a day!

  3. wow amazing self-control! I don’t know how I could resist that nightly glass of wine ;-) . Good luck! Ashamed to admit it but my fave summer program is the Bachelor Pad, followed by the Bachelorette. What can I say? I’m a sucker for love!

  4. I’m excited to hear about your cleanse! I’m going to start mine next week, and I’m excited/nervous/etc.

    Favorite summer show is definitely The Bachelorette. Hands down!

  5. Oh I love so you think you can dance! And good luck with the cleanse!! i have never been able to finish one, and I think it’s awesome when people can. Amazing will power!

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Isn’t it the best entertainment?! I’m doing well so far and I am SO determined to not give up. I have to prove to myself that I have at least a tiny bit of willpower haha.

  6. SYTYCD is blowing my mind, and it is only auditions. I can’t wait for this season. Give you credit for doing a juice cleanse, I may chew off my arm if I did.

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Me too! It is awesome. I am doing good so far, but there’s still 2.5 more days to go :x

  7. I’ve never done a juice cleanse, so I’ll be interested in reading about how you found it!

  8. I think I would have a hard time without coffee but a juice cleanse sounds like a great way to start the summer! I am looking forward to pretty little liars as well as the bachelorette!

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      The no coffee is killing me. I love tea, but it just isn’t cutting it in the morning. Two of the best shows ever invented :D

  9. OOooo freezer pops!!! Now those bring me back to my childhood summers! Though I would definitely still eat them now if they were offered to me ;) .

  10. Good luck on your cleanse! i’ve tried BluePrintCleanse and the juices are super delish and full of soooo much veggies and fruits :) My new solution for a reset after overindulgence!
