Why I Got Started




Ever since that first bite of real food, I was introduced to bad fitness and nutritional habits. I have always been accustomed to overeating, and constantly consuming foods with poor nutritional value. My body began to change in a negative way and I was not active, thanks to junk foods, oily meals, and overused couches.



When it came time to participate in outdoor activities, the task of playing and running around was a challenge and I would end up in back pain and shortness of breath in a matter of seconds. In 9th grade, through continuous poor eating habits and exercise negligence, I personally came face to face with my arch enemy, obesity.



I've learned to disguise my weight by emphasizing my humor. I'd emphasized being the "funny girl" and connected with people in a way that made sure that the first thing they didn't notice about me was my obesity. However, under all the laughter was a girl who, in some ways, felt socially limited because of her size.



It wasn't until my freshmen year in high school that my "unhealthiness" really began to bite back. The tactics I've used to hide my weight didn't work when I decided to join the high school volleyball and tennis team. For me, keeping up with the team during practices was like trying to keep up with a pack of leopards.



That's when I knew my body was in crying need of a change. My bad habits needed to be adjusted not only for my own benefit, but for my family as well who needed a model, motive, and mentor to jump start a healthy and active lifestyle. At 5'4" tall, and an unhealthy weight of 226 pounds, I knew I was about to embark on a strenuous journey. (More....)

Oh My Dis Da Big One!

Yep the biggie High School football game of the year will take place at the Prince Georges Sports and Learning Complex Friday Night 7pm. As the Undefeated DeMatha Stags Take on the yes undefeated Good Counsel Falcons.

Both have pretty much secured their playoff positioning barring any mishaps by either after this game. The game also has never been an indicator of what could happen in the post season where DeMatha has won the last 6 WCAC championships; 4 of which were against this Good Counsel squad.

Recruiting junkies should have a field day as top recruits are present on both teams. The defenses should be key here and it could be a low scoring affair with the last team to have the ball coming out on top. Or it could be another whacky finish as this series has proven to be over the years.

If you can't brave the DC area traffic tune in right here at www.ussportsradio.com or any of our super cool affiliates. While your are waiting for countdown have a listen to last year's WCAC championship game on the app here.
