• How can I start eating meat after being a lifelong vegetarian?

    I've been a vegetarian for my whole life, but I don't have anything against meat. My mom's vegetarian, so we don't really have meat in the house, so I've just never eaten it. I've tried a few bites of meat over the years, but that's pretty much it. I've realized it can be hard being vegetarian when I go out to eat or... show more
    I've been a vegetarian for my whole life, but I don't have anything against meat. My mom's vegetarian, so we don't really have meat in the house, so I've just never eaten it. I've tried a few bites of meat over the years, but that's pretty much it. I've realized it can be hard being vegetarian when I go out to eat or over to someone else's house and there isn't much to eat. I think low quality meat like taco meat, burgers, and hot dogs are gross, but I want to start eating lean white meats like grilled chicken. I'm afraid my body won't be able to digest meat since I've never eaten it. How can I start to eat meat?

    I'm a 14 year old incoming freshman, and I play club and school volleyball. I've always been a libero, and I'm currently the starting libero for my club team. This week was my high schools pre-tryout camp, and the coach wants me to be a setter. She says I'm a natural at setting, and she doesn't see why I haven't been a setter before. I'm worried that I'll be a bad setter, since I haven't played that position before. I'd appreciate any advice on setting that you have! Thanks a lot!

  • What position should I try out for?

    I'm a libero on my clubs 14-1's team, and I'll be trying out for high school volleyball in August.

    I'm a libero on my clubs 14-1's team, and I'll be trying out for high school volleyball in August. My school has really competitive athletics, so for volleyball, we have Frosh A, Frosh B, JV, and Varsity. I want to try out as a libero since that's what I'm best at, but there are four other incoming freshman who are liberos for their club teams. It's rare that a freshman makes JV or varsity, so it would be really hard to make it as a libero. This makes me think that maybe I should try out as an outside. As far as I know, there aren't any girls who are trying out for outside who play club. I'm not as good at playing outside, but I can. I'm only 5'5", so it's not as good a fit for me. Which should I try out as? Libero or outside hitter?

  • How to clean my volleyball shoes?

    I know it's bad, but I've worn my volleyball shoes outside a lot, so they're really dirty. It's made them squeaky and slippery. I want to clean off the soles so that they have better traction. Should I just use a wet wipe or something?

  • Is it normal to gain weight after going through puberty?

    I'm a 14 year old girl, and I've had my period for over 6 months. I'm 5'5" and 123 lbs. The thing is, only about a year ago, I was 5'4" and 100 lbs. Is it normal to gain this much weight? Should I go on a diet or something? I actually eat healthier than I did then and I exercise about the same amount.

What workouts and diets can I try to help with this? Thanks to anyone who answers!

People on his team told me that at tournaments he comments on how nice girls butts look in spandex all the time. At practice he walks behind us during drills and stares. Its really weird, and I don't know if we should say something about him to the club owner.

    I'm currently a libero on my teams 14-1 team, and I love volleyball! I know I'm still really young and I have a while till college, but I have a lot of questions. First of all, what can I do during the next few years to get me ready for recruiting. Volleyball is really competitive where I live, so girls are often making recruiting videos and stuff as 15 and 16 year olds. I want to improve my skills early. My high school has freshman a and b teams, sophomore a and b teams, as well as jv and varsity for volleyball. I want to make a good team in the fall. I'd also love to know general information on playing in college. I take all honors classes and have good grades, so do schools look at that when recruiting for sports? Also, how good do you have to be to play division 1? What about d2, d3, and NAIA? Could most girls get recruited for at least an NAIA school? Thanks for answering!
