I do mock meets but I still like to get pumped up for those!! This might sound silly but I like to turn on happy upbeat music and dance around in my leo!! haha, it's kinda silly but it lets me be loose and not stress about doing my routine! How did the meet go?

Thanks everyone! My meet was alright... 6th on floor, 4th on bars, 4th AA, 3rd Beam. Its not that my places were bad its that I can't honestly say I did my best. I fell on beam and I never fall. I'm really mad because I might I have been able to save it too. And then I miscalculated how close the high bar was since the gym had bars that don't go as far as ours, so I jumped hard but then I'm like whoa heres the bar I'm almost hitting my face on it. But then I did an uprise from that and such. Next meet im probably putting my giants in so I'll tell you how that goes.

When I competed and performed in displays I would make massive lists the night before of what I would need and make a minute-by-minute timetable for the next day, and that always got me really excited. I also used to count down the hours on a piece of paper for about a week before!

To get ourselves excited about a run, my bf and I do The Hoedown Throwdown dance. I had learned it before seeing the movie, then after we saw it, he wouldn't quit begging me to teach it to him as we were helping our friend study one day. So right there, in the public library, I taught him. He thinks it's so cool that he can do it lol.
