Carb craving, belated spark Anniversary, nutrition, and finding my spark

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

So again I am typing a rushed random all over the place blog post. I am in the middle of a very busy work day!

Topic 1: Carb craving! So I noticed the last couple days that I've really been craving carbs at the end of the day. I had 3 small pieces of french bread two days ago and 3 Arnolds flat bread last night. Neither of which were complete sabotage, but a little alarming. I noticed however that carbs have been the last thing I've been fulfilling in my nutrition. I've been eating a lot of eggs lately and less bread. I need to find a balance!

Topic 2: I realized yesterday afternoon that I've been on spark people for two years! Doesn't feel like it at all!!!

Topic 3: Back to the nutrition....I want to strive to eat more cleanly. More eggs, more oats, more veggies, etc etc. Still devising my plan on this one (to be continued!)

Topic 4: Finding my spark! So I've been an inline speed skater for 11 years. I've won on a national level and I have set national records. But lately I just have no desire to compete. Over the last couple years I've developed racing anxiety. I've always had nerves, but the last couple years I've even been nervous racing people that I know I'm better than and have worked harder than. I have extreme anxiety over this and lately I just haven't felt like pushing myself as hard as practice as I use to. This is my passion and yet it has kind of fell flat. I had a two hour practice last night and just wasn't feeling it. It may have been partially due to it being so late and not having caffeine, but I think it's more than that!

Any case, I need to get back to work. Later today I am calling about potentially renting the cutest house ever! It yellow and super old school country and homey! So so cute.. has a front porch swing and all!

    Good luck with the house, if it's for you it will all work out right.
    I think I understand the anxiety about the skating. When you were the champion there would always be people wanting your crown, it isn't something you would want to give up easily so a race will bring fear of failure. It's something a sports coach should be able to work through with you, I'm not qualified there!
    Congratulations on 2 yers Sparking, we are survivors!
