I didn’t find any motivational videos for dancers, so I made one! Hope you enjoy it! 

On what frutrates me about football players

“Giants guard Chris Snee plans to play in the Pro Bowl in two weeks despite a torn hip labrum and bone chips in his hip that hampered him throughout the NFL season.”

REALLY??
Snee, according to a source familiar with his situation, has opted not to have surgery on his hip for now and will take part in the Jan. 27 game in Honolulu. He may still need what the source described as a “minor” surgical procedure, but he’ll discuss his options with doctors after the Pro Bowl is over. Even if he has the minor surgery sometime next month, the source said Snee expects he’ll be ready for the start of training camp in July. Snee, who turns 32 next Friday, was selected to his fourth Pro Bowl despite clearly struggling with his painful hip injuries over the final few months of the season. Two other Giants – WR Victor Cruz and DE Jason Pierre-Paul – are scheduled to play in the game, too.“
I am SO obsessed with the Olympics...

I am also heartbroken by things like this:

Shin A Lam losing a chance to medal because of a mechanical error.  This video breaks my heart.  The despondent way she sits on the piste…the look in her eyes.  I’m glad it has no commentary.  The silence is deafening as she waits to hear her fate…the fate of her athletic career.  Damn.

There was also an American swimmer in a race yesterday who had a false start due to a technical error as well, and while she was not DQed (like Park)  it still totally threw off her mojo and she did not swim the race she was ready to swim.  

I’m also still super pissed (as I’m sure most Olympics fans are) about the new gymnastics rules that only accept 2 gymnasts into the All-Around finals, despite the gymnasts individual scores.  I did not know any of the current gymnasts before these games, but while watching I have grown incredibly fond of them, and seeing the hurt on Jordyn’s face when she found out she did not make it was heartbreaking.  She was the favorite, the shoe-in.  Sure, she made some errors that cost her dearly.  But her score is still higher than other athletes from rival nations whose gymnasts will continue to compete with a clean slate in the finals.  I completely agree with the sentiment that the BEST athletes should advance, regardless of nationality.

Describe self care

Annie, while proud in being athelic and strong, does a pretty shit job of taking care of herself. She usually exercises twice a day and takes a shower after each time along with brushing her teeth after this. THe problem lies in that she doesn’t tend to eat properly and loves to drink/use drugs. She follows a cycle of bingeing and starving herself, contriving to her weight fluxuating a lot. She also hates doctors and usually has to be forced to see one
