Contrasts

My idea for this blog was to take you through my journey “From fit, to fat and back again”. And it sorts of speak for itself.
To use the word fat might not be ethical correct but that is what it feels like.

I can´t even remember the last time I was above 60kg and boobs were normal…

Those days when my body was a tool to perform are gone and gosh I miss them. I miss having control and to know exactually what the next day will look like. Eat, train, sleep, repeat!

Top sport is extreme and my last 10 years have been extreme in every single way. I have trained hard, raced hard, slept hard and travelled hard!

The frustration I feel when my body is telling me to rest is the worst. I used to be filled with energy and all I want to do these days is sleep. I go early to bed, wake up late, take a nap after lunch and fall asleep in the sofa in the evening.
I know this amazing little person growing inside me is going to be the most wonderful thing but right now it´s hard to imagen.

I see all my old teammates laughing and suffering together at camp and that is one of the things I miss the most.
I have friends and family that I love and that loves me back, but there is something special about surviving a rough training together. The satisfaction, the pain you feel when lying on the massage table afterwards, the taste of dinner and then when the evening comes. The simple mind of knowing that tomorrow will be just same.

These last months I have been working hard with finding good routines and to accept this new situation of mine. I miss the “easy” life as a top athlete. But to miss it and to be ready to go back and do the hard work all over again, is a totally different thing. Just to be clear; A comeback from me on the highest level will never happen!

My new goal is to find the right balance in life. The balance between what I have been, what I am and what I will be.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste
    your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  2. Heya! I know this is kind of off-topic however
    I had to ask. Does building a well-established blog like yours take a lot of
    work? I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or
    tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
