With roller derby tryouts only two months away, I finally got my skates and pads. Yesterday I suited up and took off on my gorgeous black skates...then wondered what the hell I was doing! It was as though I had never skated before! I wobbled here, there and everywhere, all the while thanking the universe for my pads and wishing I had one for my butt.
But I perservered and it wasn't long before I was zooming all over the netball courts. It was freezing cold and getting dark and I have never felt more alive. The best thing was that Miss 12 & Miss 10 were skating along beside me and Mr 7 was lapping us on his bike. We had so much fun and I've never sweat so much in my life. I hope that I make the roller derby team in October but if I don't, its a great way to spend time with my kids...and if I don't lose weight doing this, I never will!
