  • Fictional 
  • THE GREAT SHAPE-UP  by Eleanor May
  • I look up at him from brain benders my favorite puzzle magazine 
  • Why do you  need to make string?
  •  I am really out of shape,I'll never make a first string this fall!
  • Not string amelia, first string you know the top players on their soccer team.The team that gets to play in every game.How was I supposed to know I don't like sports the only team I been on is the mathletes.
  • Sunveiw School Mathletes City Champion
  • This year though my brother jay tripped over his running shoes and broke his ankle.The cast was on 6 weeks and all that time jays only sport was tossing caramel corn in his mouth while watching t.v.
  • Back at home jay gets on a fan website for his favorite ball player Moe the cat Katrowski . So he eats celery and grapefruit for dinner,same thing for breakfast, same thing for lunch.
  • Check this out when he is in training all he eats is celery and grapefruit 
  • That weekend I'm still wrestling with my brain benders when jay and sam walk in.They are loaded with fast food bags.
  • My mother mail carrier aunt lost 20 pounds 
  • Sam told me about this awsome new diet you eat nothing but bacon cheeseburger without any buns
  • I check out the cats web site while jay was eating then I read from the smarties.Then the next morning I'm ready.I see jay  sitting and eating cheese curls.I blast my whistle and jay drops the bag
  • Snack times is over! coach amelia is here to whip you into shape
  • But it's very small.
  • The first thing we need to do is get rid of all the junk food.No more cheese,no donuts no more hey you need to loose that candy bar! I read its label that candy bar has 300 calories that's like eating a slice of toast,an scrambled and orange juice and a candy bar isn't good for good for you
  • awsome lets stop now.
  • Exercise is great for burning your calories 
  • of course eating healthy isn't enough to get him into shape jay needs to exercise more too.
  • A perfect fit,I have to admit coach amelia you did help me get my myself into shape.
  • At last it is the morning of tryouts lots of weeks of his training, jay puts on his uniform.we said we rather walk to the soccer field it's healthier
  • Do you need a ride to the soccer field 
  • While I'm waiting for him to come off the field I work on my brain benders I can't believe it, I solved all the puzzles guess that exercise really did make my brain sharper after all.  
  • Heads up amelia, not bad,you know you can sign ups for junior soccer tryouts start today.
  • Me?Join a junior soccer team.
  • I see the ball rolling towards me and without thinking I trap the soccer ball and kick to him.
  • Hmmm,maybe,as long that it doesn't meet the the same time  as the mathletes. Who really knows?Maybe I may be able to make first string just like jay.
