OMG! I had no idea!

Reminds me of going to rugby meeting at my college in the fall of my senior year. All of the women had injuries of one kind or other, and they all swore it wasn't from rugby, but in most cases it turned out that they _had_ gotten hurt on the field. I tore my quad just a couple weeks in and that was the end of my rugby career. I miss it, though. It was fun while my body held up.

I actually made it to the derby league. I was so excited, but during "fresh meat" training I kept feeling serious pain in my jaw from the falls and spills I took. The rattling of the falls vibrated up to my teeth. It hurt so much I couldn't continue. Since I just recently got dental insurance I went to the dentist. I have to have 4 teeth surgically removed and there is so much bone loss in my left jaw that I can't play derby or risk a broken jaw. :-(

Luv,

You DO have fun goals, and a fun profile pic. How did the derby try-outs go?

Hi-Hi fellow geeks. My name is Chrissy. I joined SparkPeople ages ago ... when I was in my 20's and had only had two children. I got really busy when I decided to go back to school in 2007 and forgot all about this site. So, surprise me when I got an e-mail (sent en mass to one of the SparkTeams I was in) and I remembered all about SparkPeople. Whoops! Now, I'm married and just had my 3rd child, whom turned a year old Jan 24th. I've begun actively working on loosing the weight and I have some new goals in mind. My main goal is to join the Roller Derby this year. So, I'm actually aiming to be an athlete. So, I started wroking on it in January and I went to a Derby Clinic that shows you how to do the moves required for the game. I did fairly well and lasted the entire 2 hours. So, I'm not as out of shape as I thought I was. Try outs are on the 16th of this month and I'm sure I'm ready to join the league. So, prayers please (or cross your fingers if you're not into praying) that I'll make the team! I really want to get back into Cosplay again and start Belly Dancing again. So, I have some fun goals set and I'm sure I'll make them. I get really motivated and I don't stop once I get started. I already shed around 7 lbs in about 4 weeks.

How is everyone?! I'm excited to be here. XD

Luv,
Chrissy
