For school, I have to run at least a nine-minute mile, but my time is always around 10:30! This article is really helpful, thank you <3

I finally got my dad to jog with me every evening, because I live at the edge of a suburban area and it's pretty dangerous to go out and run alone. Only a shame there's no hills around. They'd help.

the girl in the picture DOES NOT look "anorexically thin". She looks healthy. I am quite thin myself and people have called me anorexic before, and it really hurts. it's just plain mean to make fun of someones body.

BIG PROBLEM HERE, Ok, well about 1-2 months ago, I told my best friend that I fancied this boy, I trusted her, but she went and told him! I was SO humiliated, she did it infront of the whole school. I only sort-of fancied him cause it was the school dance comin' up, So I dont ACTUALLY like him, But now he He wont leave me alone! he keeps coming up to me in lessons, he keeps smiling at me, and I HATE IT,
Whats the best way to stop him?

Hey girlie,

If you honestly don't like him, ignore it completely. If you're ever alone with him, be honest - tell him, "I'm really flattered, but to be honest my friend kinda lied when she said that about me. I think we'd be awesome as friends though!" You can do this, girlie <3

I want to start exercising more, not because I'm overweight but I want to gain muscle. I live in a rural area but when there are cars they go around 70 mph, so jogging isn't that safe. I can't go to a gym or do yoga classes because I live in a rural area. I tried wii fit but you don't burn that much calories or gain muscle. I try to do yoga but find myself bored with that. I do enjoy the workouts in the magazines but I can't seem to stick to them. And i feel awkward doing the tv workouts. Do you have any suggestions? Right now I'm kinda stuck, i cant seem to get motivated to do much of anything, and im not big on sports either :/

Hey girlie,

You have to overcome that awkwardness and use what you have available to you! You can't go to a gym and you can't work out outside - so you're going to have to find an alternative. Try kickboxing DVDs and mat pilates DVDs. Sure you'll feel a little silly at first, but you'll soon get a lot more comfy following their moves - and you'll feel results, which is the best part of all!

Ok so I really want (and need) to start working out. The only problem is that I need something to help keep me motivated to stick with it every day. My friends are always busy so they can't help me. Any ideas I can use to stay motivated???

Hey girlie,

Make a realistic calendar of all the workouts you'll do each day! Mix it up so you're doing something different every day - it'll spice things up so your routine isn't too boring. You could also reward yourself for making it through a whole week without skipping a workout, like spending your allowance on a new album or indulging in a little brownie. Lastly, you could keep a workout blog where you write down EVERY exercise you do each day. That way, if you skip out and don't have anything to write, you'll feel a little guilty writing, "Skipped my workout today." It'll motivate you to keep going so you have an exciting, interesting, and rewarding thing to say!

I want to try a new sport, but I am going to be in high school soon. Making the teams sounds really competitive. I am not happy with playing basketball and volleyball. I want to try a more individual sport. Any ideas?

Hey girl!

Why don't you try tennis? That way, you can play individually and sometimes play doubles. You'll get the team feeling you're used to and will be able to beat your own records. Have fun! xoxox

In my school we have to run a mile every friday... its easy for me (kinda) but my time is always around 7 minutes. My last one was 7:08. I'm eleven and I wanna get better for XC next year. How do I get better?


Hey chica, practice makes perfect, so keep running. Set up a scheldue for your week where you run a couple hours a day. Hope this helps! You can do it girl! Smile Smile
