Week 2 of my Sugar Detox Challenge has been much more difficult than Week 1. Unfortunately, after I ran Stampede Road Race one week ago, I suffered a pretty significant injury that has planted me firmly on the couch for the past 8 days.
I have sprained my LCL as well as dislocated my patella, and this is causing some major pain both physically and mentally. In terms of the challenge, I have had a bit of a pity party and am prone to eating when depressed. Thankfully, I haven’t gone too overboard and did still make some positive progress during Week 2.
Given that I won’t be running or back in the gym for at least another week, clean eating is going to be paramount to making sure I don’t fall further behind physically during my recovery. So, I’m going to continue the challenge for another 2 weeks, until the end of July.
Scary as this is, here are some progress pics for you too.
